Thanx if anyone can help me

Re: Trying to deal with moods!!

Sorry you’re cousin has lost himself to D...s

Doing them together would be playing on his Brain...though his probably trying to escape reality I can only assume and destroy what does not belong inside of him...

All you can do is express you’re concern for his well being and the rest I guess is up to him when his ready to seek assistance and get help. I guess if he opens up to you try and remember he’s fighting off everything 

Coming down and on it again 

Take care @Loyaltyzfynest
