Default So....How's 2020 going for you so far

Lost a pretty much life long friend to suicide in September of last year...was a true friend to me throughout my my life, could not take the pain from divorce and could not move on.....lived a few years longer after the Divorce but to a lesser degree, Alcohol, Drugs, and DUII's were his future, The last one in August was his final straw. I was hoping 2020 would be a good year, one with less of that shit...but i was texting and calling another buddy to have dinner with no reply, only to find out when i called his girlfriend he is in ICU and had to have CPR to bring him back from certain death. Dudes been drinking straight Vodka for years and went to far, he will recover from this but he has to stop drinking or he will die. all i have to say is check in with your friend/old friends. 2020 was suppose to be better than this.

How's 2020? I'm going to go back to counseling if that tells you anything. The stacking effect of some recent shit is trying to take me down and I need to fight it.

I'd like to be 11, riding a bike, playing with Hot Wheels, sending girls love notes in school.

Adulting is complete bullshit.

life can be really challenging. I missed a few years of it due to some really challenging times. you can overcome the bullshit, you just need time and a clear mind. you can do it.

It's difficult to read about other people's problems with very little way to help them out. However, if anyone ever needs someone to talk to, I'm your guy! Send me a PM and I'll give you a call. All I require in return is you send me Vodka, Wine or hot dried peppers
