ForeverPaisley

The floodgates have re-opened.

I have been a wreck all day. Yesterda reading 'their' plan, in their mad scramble to dampen the wrath of the purple army after the announcement of no PP tours, then only on the 6, 8 & 14...to put Prince 'artifacts' on display at the GD MOA. That didn't sit right with me at all. Am I the only one? The idea that they're reducing him to objects as if that's what were why/what we are/were going to PP for. And I also wish they would stop and think What Would Prince Do/want - because while I didn't know him PERSONALLY I'd be willing to wager he sure AF wouldn'tw any his things carted around Minneapolis and put on display in a mall. But maybe that's just me disbelief

Today, with the clips, images and quotes of the Today show interview... I find myself absolutely gutted all over again. The images of the way they have things set up ... Just sent a dagger of heartache. It really was reality kicking me in the shin with cleats! He's. Gone. cry

And no, I haven't been in denial this whole time. I actually thought I was making some progress, not crying as often as before. But today I can't seem to keep it together. broken bawl

Yup, going through another dip in the grief rollercoaster myself. The activity related to the October events called up some sadness in me but I kept it together today. Tonight though? With the news about Tyka saying Prince knew he was leaving us soon? All bets are off cry

This has hit me hard too. sad But I have this feeling which is hard to explain. I'd be more at peace knowing he had an undisclosed illness (assuming that's what this was) than he just got hooked on painkillers for whatever reason. I wonder if the family will ever really share more or if this is it. confused

My gut has been telling me that, but with no knowledge of the facts I just didn't know what to believe. If they are willing to give out more info I just hope it doesn't come in dribbles. I think it will really help grieving fans construct the narrative once and for all, so that they can make peace with it.

I really feel like she's referring to his substance abuse issue. We have had friends and acquaintances who struggled with and eventually less their battles with addicting and their family members all said something similar. This is heartbreaking all over again

--- Let it go. He was in withdrawals from the meds failing at it and suppose to go to a rehab the next day. Drugs were not his only issue. Who would be in a hurry to get to rehab if something was killing you. There was a rumor two years ago that he was in the hospital for Sepsis and KJ said in the search warrant that in was in the hospital for treatments.

A lot of what he said and did in the past year makes sense now.

I'm broken in pieces right now. I've never commented on his death here before. I come here (half the time not feeling worthy) only to enjoy him as I struggle with my regrets and guilt of missing out on so much of him in the past few years, but today has blown me away emotionally. I watched the video so casually not expecting anything but some info on the opening of PP and the tours, only to hear Tyka casually mention that she'd known for two years that he was dying. Every time I think the pain is subsiding.. Something else. I just can't anymore. He's gone. I can't bring him back. To be honest I'd rather hear nothing else.. I can't deal with the roller coaster.

Yes.

The big question since he passed was answered in a roundabout way. That may be all we will get but I am relieved she put it out there to help people heal from this terrible loss. This raw grief people have been experiencing for months wouldn't have stopped any other way imo. And keep in mind that these are my thoughts on what she said...but I along with others have said from the start he was terminal.

I know, it is mostly just making it all more confusing. The terminal illness thing at this point would be a relief maybe but why not just say what it was then?! Like I said I had a close friends whose brother went off the rails with his drug use and she used to say she lived in constant fear of the phone call she knew was coming if he didn't get help. And she did eventually get that call.

It is very confusing. My issue with the drug thing is he was still working and performing, doing interviews and going on awards shows etc. I struggle with him being able to do all that if he was off the rails on drugs to the point where people were fearful he'd OD. That just doesn't add up to me.

She might be just talking about a two year drug addiction that she knew he was unwilling to kick due to just being exhausted and in physical pain. He might not have known when he was going to die but he might have known that his prospects for a long life were few--thus the reason for continuing to work and look forward to smaller projects in the next couple years but still winding down a bit with more intimate smaller concerts.

I don't know what to make of Tyka's contradicting statements. But maybe her 90% denial, 10% maybe statement from this morning was more referring to the last two years. And her saying that percentage has flipped more recently is the way in which she has been mourning since he died...acceptance with no surprise (along with sadness).

Or maybe Tyka just does not know what she feels.

Yes, I understand, those are all good points. I don't get it either. If it was something else just say so. Then again who is on their deathbed for two years, ya know? I just wish he would have gotten properly cared for no matter the condition.
