THE TYRANNY OF METH
ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO LIVE WITH A METH USER...
....The drug splits them into two people mentally. One worse than the other. Thus they lie to themselves as well to anyone else. My experience with such was years long. In Gila Bend, Az. the local judge, a U.S. postal clerk, a neighbor to the left of me, and directly behind my rented cottage, his name is Mike Ruff, dealer, addicting his two preteen sons getting SSI, because his wife, their mother died of a brain hemorage, no doubt caused by his tormenting her. Before I left the area, I phoned a senior friend, Gracie Pinot and asked her to contact the sons grandparents asking them to change their fathers getting SSI to themselves. It took 9 months, but when it happened and the kids moved in with them, it changed their life. In a short time their school grades zoomed upwards. The grandmother a long time school teacher no doubt responsible. Oddly enough, I became the enemy, but thats alright, accepting "No good deed will go unpunished."
Now because of a neighbor's kindness here, him supplying me a notebook computer plus teaching me far more than I ever could do by myself, I have to be the slowest learner in the universe!, his patience remarkable. Finding out he prefers Fuji apples, I bring them often for him, its the least I can do, honor really doesnt have a price. He's also sponsoring a woman in a rehab facility, while for himself searching for a data processor job. Remarkable.
