    My Brother's Meth Use

    Well, I don't know what the correct word to use for it is, but he shoots it up. As far as I know, he started snorting it about 10 yrs. ago. Probably started smoking it about 6-7 yrs. ago and maybe shooting about 5 yrs. ago. This is all a guess. He is 27. I miss my BROTHER so much. It breaks my heart to see him. He is losing his hair and from what his girlfriend says, he has bruises and marks all along the inside of his arms. It is tearing our family apart. But just today (May 2004) it finally came out to my mother and father that he is shooting it up. He has pawned off all of his possessions and only has the clothes off of his back. His girlfriend just kicked him out and my parents say they won't financially help him anymore or let him stay at the house. He won't come to my house because my husband won't put up with him and my brother knows it.

    I love my brother and always will, no matter what. It is just so hard to deal with this and to stand by and watch him slowly kill himself. He is so talented and smart. Everyone always asks about my brother and says, "That's too bad, he was so talented." My brother does everything in excess, good or bad. We come from a broken family. My parents divorced when he was only 3. I am so sad I don't know what I can do except wait for the call that he is in jail, in rehab or worse, dead.

    Brother, if you're out there and reading this know that i love you no matter what. You may think your life is over, but it's never, NEVER too late to change and make it better. You are still so young and have your whole life ahead of you. My future children need an uncle. This world needs YOU. You are so special to me.

    Love Your Concerned Sister
    Alice, Costa Mesa
