Remembering The Canadian Who Couldn't Dance.

I've opened up on this blog about some of my mental issues and things before. One thing that is close to my heart is addiction, and the people suffering from it.

Today it's been 4 years since one of my favorite people, Cory Monteith, passed away from a drug overdose. I was a serious fangirl for Cory. I loved Glee, and I was (and still am) just giddy for the man. I was devastated when I found out about his passing.

One might ask "Why would you care so much about a person you've never met and doesn't even know who you are?". Well, he's a person. A human - why wouldn't one care about the health and well being about another decent human being? Also, Cory was not the only person suffering with this dreadful disease. There have been many we've lost because of addiction. There are many who are still battling it as we speak. For those who are no longer with us, I miss you and I wish you would have won your battle. For those still here and struggling, keep fighting and know that you can get through it. You can do anything.

While awareness ribbons may represent multiple things, the Blue Ribbon represents Addiction Recovery Awareness. If you or someone you know is battling addiction, visit americanaddictioncenters.org and drugabuse.com for help. You can also call the SAMHSA National Helpline at 1-800-662-4357.

You have help. You have people who love you. You have people who care about you. You have people who want you to always be around. Never forget that.
