This interactive story was made to explore the loneliness, stress and misery of caring for someone at the end of their life, while also dealing with one's own addictions, mood and health. It is intended to be a gruelling task to get through this story. If the content upsets you, I apologise. Please stop playing if you find the content stressful or extremely upsetting, and seek help if the distress you experience is severe and long-lasting.

Trigger warnings: adultery, mention of torture, drug use, alcohol consumption, gambling, mention of gang crime, depression, stress and anxiety, video game addiction, death, dementia/Alzheimer’s 

This is a therapeutic exercise for me, as it is based on what I know of how someone close to me died, and is a way of me dealing with the trauma of that experience. It is not 100% true though, simply inspired by what happened. To tell the whole truth would be a breach of privacy to a man who was very private in his life. But with him gone, my family and I are left to deal with what was left behind, all the things that he hid from us, and all the things we never got to experience with him because he's gone now.

Please treasure the people in your life.
