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.
