Two of my best friends from high school became homeless meth addicts after our graduation. It hurt me but didn't surprise me too much because they were silly guys who did silly things.
But a female friend of mine is also now homeless and she's either been using drugs or has suffered from a nervous breakdown. It's so hard to see such a beautiful creature in the situation she's in. I wish that life weren't so insane. My two male friends are named Emerson and Pat. My female friend is named Thi. I humbly request that you pray for them and their lives. If it weren't for having my parents supporting me, I'd end up in the same situation.

Peace.

I talked with Father Michael about her condition, he happens to be a counselor at Spokane Mental Health. He said that Thi most likely is suffering from schizophrenia and that it usually begins in the age she's at now. I hope that she gets the help she needs.
