Re: BMX Brotherhood Thread

Great thread. Was skimming through a few threads this morning and literally said out loud to myself "So tired of all the hate in every single F'n thread". Nice to see this. Cabin fever used to be just Jan-Feb around here but we have all been locked up since March in one way or another.

Re: BMX Brotherhood Thread

Not had much time for anything recently.

My mother, who is 74, had a bad fall about a month ago. It's been a bit of a nightmare since. She broke her leg, knee and had a really bad wound. Needed to be operated on and then tons of stitches. This would be bad enough for any 74 year old woman, but she has osteoporosis and arthritis so badly she could hardly move before.

She was rushed to hospital, then operated on about four days later. Then someone in the ward who was visiting tested positive for Covid, so it was just tons more stress and worry. Then they were going to move her to a more local hospital, then they were going to move her to one 60 miles away (toward London) which was in full lockdown, so no visitors.

It's franking sucked tbh. Eventually she was allowed to go stay with my aunt (her twin) but it's putting pressure on every one. Doesn't help that she needs to wear her plaster for four months either, and is basically completely bed bound.

Not even really had a chance to think about bikes, let alone touch one.

I am seeing a lot of tension and animosity lately. For various reasons stress levels are high and one or some of us here may be struggling. There is no shame in asking for help or needing to chat.

Please use this thread to reach out if feel you need to chat. We don't need to discuss in detail here. Drop a note and maybe someone will reach out in PM. Maybe phone numbers can be exchanged.

The colour of our skin, our religious and political beliefs, where we live etc. are insignificant. In the end we all came here for the same reason and now it's time to start banding together rather than pulling apart further. These are trying times and at some point everyone could use a pick me up.

Please respect this thread because it isn't a joke.

Hope all is well with everyone.

Hoping the best for your mom right now. Sounds like a rough time. My mom goes in for  breast cancer treatment next Friday so I'm going to have a full plate myself.
Take care my BMX brother.

Word to your mothers! Take care of those ladies!

This month I’ll be helping my grandma move out of the city. She’s 85 and has been living on her own on the 4th floor of the sam downtown apartment with no elevator since 1976. Just recently stopped driving this past year and just can’t handle the city anymore. She has a placed lined up in the town I grew up in, where my parents still live and she grew up in a couple hours east. It will be weird as she’s only ever lived in one place my entire life but she will be closer to family that can help her and still not too far from me and my family so we can still see her often

Re: BMX Brotherhood Thread

I would give anything for one more day with my Grandma.

I lost mine when I was still too young and stupid to know how much I should have cherished her.

I’ve been blessed that I’ve been able to spend time with my grandparents throughout my entire life. I had my great grandmother until 2013 when she passed at 101. My kids still have great grandparents and they won’t fully understand how amazing that is until later in life

I lost mine to cancer,  growing up we always did Thanksgiving at her house, since she passed,  it just isn't the same sad
I was lucky,  I took time off to take her to her cancer treatments,  out to eat and shopping.

Add the fact that I lost one of my best friends and mentor on Thanksgiving, this isn't my favorite time of year. https://s3.amazonaws.com/uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/23382/img_20200621_115055_4065fae0b6796.jpg

Agreed. Snow is on the ground, temps below freezing, getting dark early...and these are the normal things that happen every year. Things aren't looking pretty but I am optimistic that things will turn for the better. Always great to have  a sold group to count on. When things changed in March I admittedly coped by drinking too much. I wasn't getting wasted regularly, not really often at all, but my consumption was definitely way up. That trend carried into May and then in to August and then on Halloween I said enough is enough. Threw in the towel. 2 weeks with nothing and it feels pretty good. I don't intend to stay dry because I do love pints but right now I really don't have the desire so I will roll with it. With gyms on the verge of closing this should also help keep the weight off lol I will give it the month of November for sure and maybe even push to Christmas depending on how I feel...

Mine was 88 IIRC. She had a stroke, and passed shortly after. I was 25, and busy jet setting all over the place and getting married. It was my stupid years where I used to make excuses and not go see her and my grandad. Jesus do you pay for that when they are gone.

I did get to see her at the end though. Which will remain with me as long as I live.

Yeah this time of year sucks for me too. Dad died on the 18th October 1981 when he was 35, mum's birthday is 4 days later (and she must feel that every single damn year) and Dad's birthday is in the first week of November too. So every year I get lost in thought for the whole month. Also, no matter where I am or what I am doing or even if I am too busy to remember sometimes the 18th October sucks EVERY year. It's so weird.

No.. here in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia I love winter. If we’re unlucky in the height of winter it may drop to zero degrees just before dawn then the days get to around 26 degrees Celsius. Perfect weather.

I don’t dislike winter actually. I don’t don’t like when it lingers. The snowstorms and cold temps in late March and into April are what get to me. I love the first month of snow and I love Christmas. January is ok, February it gets old.
