I miss my brother

He’s the oldest. Yesterday was his Birthday. I didn’t call him. Usually I do but he always acts weird and tries to come up with some excuse why he has to get off the phone right away. I don’t know if he doesn’t like me or if he just doesn’t like talking on the phone. It sad. But it’s enough that I didn’t even bother calling him yesterday.

He’s extremely intelligent. He’s friendly. He’s a little unusual and is involved in SCA and spends a lot of time programming computers and other introverted activities. He like to play D & D and has since I was a little girl . I remember as a small girl thinking of him as my Father rather than my brother because he seemed so much older than me. I used to call him Jimmy-J or Jo-Jo. He’s the first person I knew to have a PC, it cost $5000. That was very expensive for back then and not many had them. He taught himself how to program and eventually became a programmer for the county.

Good guy. Wish we were closer. I hope he’s doing well.

Yea,

I Miss My Brother Too. I Called Him Last Night. Once Again, Didn’t Answer. He Never Responds to Anything I Say. It’s Weird… . …

I Think He’s Scared of Me.

I Don’t Know Why He Would Be… . … :pensive:

I’m sorry you’re missing your brother.

Sounds like he’s just an extremely introverted person.

I hope you guys are able to have a good chat soon.

Yea,

I Have Been Thinking He’d Wake up or Something One Day.

Well, He Kinda Left Earth.

And He’s Not Even an Astronaut.

I Dunno, Makes No Sense… . … :pensive:

Thanks @anon54386108, maybe he’ll call me on my birthday. That would be great.

You could always text him. I find it hard to keep conversation going with relatives on the phone, but its easy to say short messages and birthday wishes etc.

He doesn’t even let me have his cell phone number, if he even has one.

I would say he’s probably really introverted. If it really bugs you that much Id just call him.

I have a brother and I value him very much. Our relationship was strained over the years, perhaps due to my schizophrenia wanting me to be distant, yet we are still close. I also have 2 sisters. So there are 4 of us! It means I always get lots of presents on my birthday and get to go on good holidays I.e. Venice. I’ve slowly been learning how to code myself, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of documentation for learning C, especially not for graphics, so I have to do a lot of searching on Google. I’m most likely going to settle on an easier, higher level language like Python. I highly recommend Free Code Camp tutorials, there are some on YouTube lasting hours in Python and Ruby, C and C++ programming and more.

Oh cool. Both my son and sister are teaching themselves Python and C++. I personally don’t have the mind for programming, I don’t think. I struggle with the one language I know, English lol

My brother leads a very busy life but he still manages to keep in touch with us.
I wish we were a lot closer.

I only have one sister who thinks she has a higher level of consciousness than me. She says that I’m still in the uterus because I still rely on my parents for support.

From what my sister says, my other brother has kind of gone kooky a little lately. It’s odd though because he’s always been the voice of reason. It makes me feel a little vulnerable in this world. It’s like who do you go to when the voice of reason has gone mad? Anyway, I guess he’s getting a little better but there for awhile he was saying strange things and acting up a bit. The stress of being out of work and struggling financially is getting to she thinks. But she helped him out and now he’s acting a little more like himself again. I think the stress of Corona was weighing heavy on him too, he’s in Southern California in the thick of it and there’s lot’s of elderly relatives on his wife’s side of the family down there who are at risk to worry about.
