    • A few years back, I had a similar situation, older brother as well. Except it was Acid, also causing havoc, and generally causing mayhem. No one can control nor really oppress the actions of someone who’s allowed themselves to be overtaken by drugs.

    • The struggle with knowing someone who’s a drug addict is the worst, especially if they’re family. My dad is addicted to benzoylmethylecgonine, also known as cocaine. It has been hard as a child and as a teen. Personally, I think it affects you a lot more as you grow older. I agree with you because once you start a drug that is easy to get addicted to there’s no going back, unless with the help of people who understand. Rehab facilities are great places for addicts.

    • I’m sorry about what you went through when you were younger. No one deserves to go through something like that. You’re very strong for opening up about this, it’s courageous of you.

    • One of the phrases that stood out for me is ” when I was 10 years old , I had my innocence taken away ” i relate to this and I stand with you , same thing happen to me when I was 7 years old I am still coming to the realization to it it is something that never really goes away you just learn how to cope with it as time goes by and in the process realize that you have developed some disorders and then you also have to learn how to cope with that too . I was researching and I found this article that gave me a little bit more of information if you’d like to read it here’s the link ”https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/trauma-and-hope/201704/overcoming-sexual-assault-symptoms-recovery ”.
      I’m sorry you’re going through this , you are brave and strong for wanting to inform people and sharing your story and for the fact that you’re still here thank you for still being here . thank you for allowing people to know you a bit more . I look forward to seeing what you write next , because I felt connected with your story and i admire your bravery and the way you express yourself . I hope to see more of your writing and hear more about you and what you have to share . thank you for sharing
