My father called me today to tell me that he had a premonition that in 3 days' time - on Halloween - I will die.

This is odd, as my father - albeit very religious - does not believe in premonitions and similar things. He has never done anything like this before.

How am I supposed to respond to this?

In the unlikely event that his premonition is correct, I would like to say a final fond farewell to all of my wonderful MS brothers. I love you all VERY, VERY much. Good luck and Godspeed in your recoveries, guys.

Hopefully , I will chat with all of you on Nov. 1st...

Your loving brother, as always,

in the beginning, i thought it was all the pain meds in my system when i read this, i thought I was high.

I had to read it a few times to realize your dad actually said that.

that is odd. i hope your dad is not correct. i'm pretty sure that if it was your time to go, God (at least MY God) would give you a more credible messenger to give you that kind of notice. I think on Nov. 1st (all saint's day) you should trick or treat at his house dressed as the grim reaper and tap him on the shoulder for saying that kind of nonsense to you.

oh, and if you died that day i would be very, very sad because i would have lost a brother, too.

but I don't think that is going to happen.

Look forward to you being around on Nov 1st.

What a weird thing for your dad to say.

I like CF's idea about trick or treating at his house as the grim reaper. I reckon that has merit hehe smile

Blaidd (pronounced as blaith/blithe) is a welsh word meaning wolf.

Unless you have an extremely time sensitive date of departure from a doctor, I would write this off as superstitious idiocy.

I don't even know where to begin. My gut is telling me that is some sort of desparate act on the part of your father. I don't wish to speak ill of him, but this is not typical behavior of someone who is religious or no. I think this might stem from the fact that you have taken steps and made literal and metaphorical moves.

I have absolutely no doubts that you will be here on November 1st and beyond. I know it's easy for me to say, but you need to dismiss what your father said and not give it a second thought. You are moving forward and don't need the mind games.

I love you, Bobcat!!

Welcome back Bobcat!

Not "I love you, son" or "I'm proud of youmand have great hopes for the man you are becoming".

Sorry-but your dad sounds seriously deficient in the fathering field.
(my dad ripped me up verbally and threatened me with a crowbar in the last weeks of his life-they come unglued at times and have nothing to offer but destruction I guess.)
We all die-in a variety of ways-in this place-the old me shut down repressed isolated hijacked fearful sad angry and hopeless dies a little each day i take a step forward.

Have a great day-it's all we got.

We have to take responsibility for what we're not responsible for.

Dear Bobcat,

I wouldn't worry too much about this premonition. It isn't a very considerate thing for your dad to say, who knows why he said it, but i don't think it is because he can see into the future.

I look forward to talking to you after Halloween! (maybe your dad said this as some kind of Halloween set-up?).

your friend
