Brian was always there for the underdog. He was so loved by all of us.
We tried, we really did – I keep wondering what we could have done different or what we should have done. Counselors, doctors, many rehabs, jail, enabling, tough love, living homeless, living with us…we tried it all. Brian was delusional, paranoid, bipolar…drugs did this to him. In and out of rehab, in and out of jail…I hid what I could – I didn't want people to think we raised him this way – we didn't. We can only hope that now Brian can see how much he was loved and how we tried our hardest to help him. Drugs changed his life and ours forever. I hate drugs! I hate what it does to the addict, I hate what it does to the family. Drugs can only cause heartache. Brian lost so many friends..from overdoses and from the way the drugs made him act. He wasn't Brian anymore – his life wasn't his own.Stealing, lying, living life with only one thing in mind. I had hoped he could beat the horrible demons that took over his life – at least now he is at peace..no more delusions finally at peace...
When he was clean for a year
Just him...before drugs
