Lost A Good Buddy And Family Member, Mental Health/Drug Abuse Is A Major Society Issue.

Hello everyone and how is it going today? Hopefully you all are doing well. I doing ok better then when I was going to first write this post which was about a couple weeks ago. It’s still going to be hard to write it but I will, be able to to my best.

So a couple weeks back I had heard from one of my family members that another one of our family members had past. He was a foster nephew but a friend as well. But thing I didn’t know had happened like him being homeless and having issues with drinking alcohol and abusing drugs. I couldn’t really see him as a drinker and never really could see him doing anything other then cannabis. Didn’t know he was in treatment more then once. Last, never even knew he had been living on the streets and this winter here in Spokane, Wa was a cold one. From what I understand he was found outside by the police. This is the only information I had got about the whole thing. But I will say that my buddy/foster nephew also suffered from Aspergers and hard time focusing i.e. ADHD. I not sure if there was anything else but sure he did suffer from depression as well. His blood family from what I understand has abandoned him as well and/or are drug addicts. 

So with all this it’s hard to say this going on, if there was much more that could been done to give people in this situation but I will say that if the people in my life haven’t given up on me I could be in this situation. In all honesty, if I would have known he was in this situation my wife and I would have let him stay at our house especially because this winter was a cold one. But this goes to show part of our system that are broken. Again let me repeat I don’t know the whole story but I do know from experience in the system myself, the parts that are failing. 

With all this being said I kind of what to blog about this a bit and more of less may my buddy rest in peace as this place is such a cruel world. Glad to have met ya. 

Now remember everyone remember not everyone has the world best support system or someone to talk to. Sometimes all you can do is just be there for someone. Thanks for reading.

Sometimes I think we humans need a little more guidance but on the other hand it seems like the impossible. Though I believe that by my typing of this article can help makes some changes in that I hope to provoke some one to think about what I have been writing. As sometime I think we really don’t think about out actions until after we already had done them. Most of the time when I see something I would like to write about I end up not doing it. Anyways, this time I could stop myself from writing this like a burning desire to make a change in the world.

So I recently came across this article about a cat named Toby on Facebook shared article this morning before heading in to work that kind of broke my heart with this cat in the above image. What had happened is that this cat’s family didn’t want him anymore and they decided to take him to a new home and he didn’t stay and walk all the way back. A whole 12 damn miles back to them and they decided that his life needed to be end by asking the shelter that he was taken to, have him put down. Thankfully this story had a bit of happy ending in that Toby got another home after the shelter refusing to do what the family asked. But This is not always the case and I think we need to start stepping and little bit more and have people who can’t be responsible for animals held a little bit more accountable. The reason is they DO make the damn choice to have a pet in the first place. Just because a life becomes an inconvenience it is NOT OK to abandoned the life especially if it comes back to you. I don’t care what you believe I believe and will stand by it. The thing I do understand is all life is important and deserves a chance. Think before you go out and buy a pet or take a pet in. If not sure get a forever home for it. Uncertain thoughts on pets are not allowed.

If I was close I so would have taken the guy. Thank you to the person that took in Toby even though the article might be earlier in the year.

Thanks for reading and please share at least one of the articles either mine or my sources. Thanks 😀
