I just learned that my younger adult sibling has been severely, deeply depressed. This surfaced when sib said they needed help moving and the family showed up to find that the entire apartment was under 3-4ft of trash, including a significant amount of rotten food.

Sib’s supposed to be moving across the country, and we’re worried…

To all the post-9/11 veterans, it’s a somber day that unites us all in the reason we fought.
