Drugs and Alcohol

I’ve watched people go through things and use alcohol and drugs as a way to get over things. Just because you’re going through something doesn’t mean you turn to drugs and alcohol endangering yourself especially when you have people looking up to you who could be a relative or not. Irregardless of the relationship, drugs and alcohol only calm you temporarily, but endanger your safety, possibly someone else’s, and your health. Members in my family passed from alcoholism and health related issues, that’s why when I see somebody else going down that path, I quickly try to help.

There are other ways to handle situations that you might feel require drugs/alcohol to calm you down. There are friends, there are family, hell, there is me. I’ve always tried to make a way to understand someone even when I don’t understand the situation because I know how it feels to be misunderstood and what that can do to you. In fact seeing others being misunderstood worries me in a way because you never know what one might do to themselves. Everybody handles situations differently, and when someone doesn’t understand you, especially the people you want to understand you, you could confine yourself to a room.

To be honest with you, it’s not always drugs and alcohol that take over people’s life, sometimes it’s past and present situations that take a toll on someone who doesn’t know how to deal with it. I’m not excusing anything, I’m just saying there are people who you can go to who are willing to help and listen LIKE ME, therapist, doctors, friends, and family. A lot of times when a therapist or doctor is mentioned, people think that it’s a bad thing when it’s not. Sometimes you have to do what’s best for you, stress kills, love kills when it’s not happening correctly, past experiences can also kill when you haven’t found the correct way to move forward.

With me being the person that I am and going through what I did, it’s not easy. Having seizures, and not being able to have kids, but seeing everyone else live a normal life drug free, happy, while I have to take a certain amount of meds a day. That takes a major toll on you especially when you feel people have given up on you, or you THINK you need someone on your side. It’s nice to have people around, but you can’t force any situation, not everything will be understood and that’s okay. It’s okay to break down from time to time, but it’s also okay to STAY STRONG. Excuse my language, but shit happens.
