One of my friends in high school, grew up with a silver spoon in his mouth.

He comes from a family of privilege and wealth.

He had his whole life a head of him.

He has fallin off the radar recently. I haven't heard from him in a while.

I met a couple of people a few days ago who were in the same university as him.

I asked them how he was doing.

The both looked at me and shook their heads. Never a good sign.

What i asked, whats wrong.

They told me that the guy has been sitting at home for the past year and a half. He's not even enrolled in university.

He became morbidly obese.

He's four times the size he used to be in high school they said.

and he was a pretty big guy in high school.

They told me if he walks to the door he starts panting.

All he does is sit in his lazy boy and smoke weed.

Day or night, he rolls them joints and smokes.

Its sad. I felt really bad for him.

I called him a few times and he didn't pick up.

My other friends tried to intervene, but what can you do when your a million miles apart.

The thing is his family thinks he's in university. Although i don't know what major lasts seven years!

I hope he gets out of the rut hes in. Y7es 3ala dama eshway.

I hate that theres nothing i can do for him.

Typical! Most people study abroad are like this!

Well I got this from a professor few years back, "A idiot is a person who never learns from his mistakes and does it again, a smart person who learns from his mistakes from the first time, but a genius learns from other peoples mistakes.

Its hard when somebody falls down this hole and trying to get him out of it. How can his family not know that isn't attending university for a year, its sad that he reached this point..

I know what you mean, but sometimes you can't help everyone and he has to figure out what he is doing is wrong and get out of it!

December 17, 2009 at 8:40 AM  

That's pretty awful. You can't help those who don't want to be helped.

December 17, 2009 at 8:53 AM  

When people turn to drugs...their life changes 180 degrees (to the worse). Even if they think they are "not" addicted and they are fine.

I hope he gets past this enshalla.

December 17, 2009 at 9:10 AM  

7araam!!Someone needs to step in to help him! yakser ilkha6er!

December 17, 2009 at 4:40 PM  

loool loser? that letter almost sounded sincere

December 17, 2009 at 7:29 PM  

oh lordy!

hope his senses kick-in soon :/

by the way, its still extra cool that your posts are posted 12 am on the dot, like they always are ;p

December 18, 2009 at 5:27 AM

lilasaf thats true

i hope so too

we all tried.. bs its easier said than done!

December 18, 2009 at 10:32 AM  

I somehow dont feel sorry for these people cz ohma they bought it upon themselves
Oo worse in his case ena he doesnt even want to help himself come out of it

The things is u cant help someone who doesnt wanna help themselves

Its a shame really :(

December 18, 2009 at 4:34 PM  

That's too bad!

December 18, 2009 at 4:56 PM  

i feel sorry for his fam more than i do him

it is !

December 18, 2009 at 5:03 PM  

If I may say this:

people, don't judge! if you haven't been in his shoes you don't know what it's like to be him fa get those judgments out of this world please. o meno gal he wants anybody's sympathy aslan? that's so wrong to say!

anyhoo i do think that you can't help that person if he doesn't want help and insists on his low standard life

all you can do is pray and wish and hope for the best, and be there for him when HE asks for it . . make sure he knows that you're there for him

otherwise, we're just short of tools to change other people's lives right?

maskeen ala y3en his famly and himself :(

December 18, 2009 at 10:26 PM  

what do u mean what its like to be him... there really isnt a great mystery to why he got like that .. and i dont know if hell ever get out of it !
bs he could use all the prayers he can get

December 19, 2009 at 1:22 AM  

He needs help for sure.

December 19, 2009 at 3:19 AM  

I just love how the beginning and the middle of the post shows your concern and than BAM!


Thanks for feeding my inner demons. 8D

December 19, 2009 at 10:10 AM  

yep he does

but i am really concerned for him!
doesnt change the fact hes a loser!

December 19, 2009 at 10:14 AM  

Sometimes no-one can help you except yourself!
If he is not planning to get over this bad phase he's turning to LOSER!!

Last thing: His family eshsalfathom?? 9akeen 3eenhom bel3amad!! mo m3goola ma ydroon!! etha entaw "friends: dreetaw...
waladkom hatha ya nas!!

some peopel go through emotional problems that you cannot and will never imagine. Stop judging people like you always do.

I never liked you anyway.

December 20, 2009 at 10:57 PM  

wallah i dont know
i remember his mom being so strict when we were young and all up in his bussiness
madre esh9ar!

la 3afya plz like me
my life would never be the same

December 20, 2009 at 11:52 PM  

hmm the "loser" was uncalled for :/

he might seem like one and maybe is one but there is no need for the label..

you never know what drove him to that state.. and even if it was nothing then try all means to help, including contacting his parents..

no one deserves to be in such a state.. hope your buddie gets out of it some way or the other..

December 21, 2009 at 5:11 AM  

uhh this is sad :s bass laish loser? u never know wat led him to this

December 21, 2009 at 8:11 AM  

were all trying to help.. but unless he wants to be helped mako fayda..
and if it walks like a duck..

cz he became a loser.. and will hold the title till he pulls his act together..
3ade e7na meyana ma yz3al ;)

December 21, 2009 at 3:19 PM  

7araam maskeen! he should get help!

December 21, 2009 at 7:48 PM  

he should, but i dont think he wants to

December 22, 2009 at 12:30 AM  

maskeen poor guy , but elle kasreen kha6ree his parent

December 22, 2009 at 12:47 AM  

It's really tragic when someone goes down that path. Alla yshafee wifikka min hal mu9eeba. bila bila Alla ykafeena ishar

December 22, 2009 at 10:02 AM  

Leave him be would be my advice. He needs an inner decision to change his own life. Just make the best of your own life, thats the best way you can help em so if one day destiney unites you 2 he might get motivated by what you accomplished
Agree with anonymous; prayers is the only thing you can do for him. No the not liking you thing, I don't agree with him on that :)

December 23, 2009 at 12:54 PM  

too bad, he needs some people to support him!

December 28, 2009 at 1:59 AM  

I have a friend who's like that...
He's morbidly obese, he gets drunk everyday... and I'm the only one he's in contact with on a regular bases... i try talking to him to lose some weight and cut down on the drinking but he doesn't listen..
the bright side, he's going to school... but BARELY passing... might be failling this semester though.
It sucks... i don't know what to do
no matter how hard i try mako fayda

December 31, 2009 at 4:11 PM  

Ugh, i can imagine your frustration :S allah yfta7 3yoona inshalla w he'll leave his rut on his own

He seems to have very depressing life! No work, no friends, no collage .. he gotta find him a goal in life .. even if his friends did not find him a way into change. Sad story!
