This happened in our neighborhood. I haven't seen anything in the newspaper about it, but it seems as though a rather intoxicated man ran over a mailbox....before church one Sunday.
At first I thought to myself, "Dang, how can anyone be that drunk that early in the day?" Then, it occurred to me that he was probably still drunk from the night before. The more I thought about this man and the way he wrecked his truck and a neighbor's mailbox thinking he was on his own street...the more I realized that this man needs help. He needs a friend. He needs a loved one. I am not the person to be his friend; I would just enable him and make it worse. I am calling out to anyone in the community who knows this man though. Please, let me know if he is okay and if he is going to get the help he needs. Or let me know if you have tried to help him, and enough was finally enough. Believe me, I understand the position of enough is e-freaking-nough; one doesn't call her blog The Enabler and Her Codependents without learning the hard way that sometimes you half to cut people off.
