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.

American Dreamers. Music sometimes…well..um…always really moves me

So lately I have been under a lot of extra not needed stress lately due to some issues at work that I have never experienced or I ever would have believed to have happened to me. But it happened and my anxiety and ultimately my depression has been on the rise. I hate how much emotions can make physical health much worse if you already have issues such as I do with a back and neck injury that doesn’t go away. I have it managed to a point but pains are never going away.  So as I have been feeling like I have been walking on egg shells at work with this situation that had happened, because I’m a goofy white man LOL I’m not going to go into that but maybe later in member only content. Anyways, I glad I got this site up and running again as it is kind of like my therapy. Anyways, before I begin I will say that I listen to just about everything from rock, metal, rap, blues and even electronic and dance music.

Anyways at the place that the situation had occurred I have been hearing this song playing overhead while I’ve been cleaning the store I felt it was kind of catchy but also I kind of felt a sadness that I couldn’t explain. So I spent sometime looking it up-the internet is so damn awesome-I probably took longer to find them without the net. I basically looked them up by song lyrics in Google. The song is called American Dreamer by Kyd the Band. Very good song and I plan checking out the other songs a bit more later. When I looked up the lyrics I started to understand the sadness a bit more. Maybe I just read to much into things but this is Thoughts of Everything and I the creator am the sole thoughts provider right now at the moment. But I was much moved and glad to have heard this song. In a sense this is how I feel about the girl I am with I want to buy her a house and share it forever. Even hand it down to her daughter. What saddens me is how most who end up in the situation where they lose the house or even when having hard times with making ends meat they fear that person leave them as it happens all the time in society as love seems to a bit more materialistic which doesn’t make a good team at all. But it happens.

Quote from song: “I think I wanna buy you a house
I think I wanna share forever right now
And if the bank man comes to steal it away
I hope you, I hope you stay” American Dreamer by: Kyd the Band

See what I mean. Here is the video as so good:

Thank you Kyd the Band for a great song.;
