Funnily you should post this,yesterday (saturday) i spoke to my father who i havent seen for some time & although this is a "tad" differant then your post i thought its got some kinda relevance,aparently my uncle who had everything a wife a nice house & a good life has become almost over night "a tramp" omg..!!! hes walked out on everything he had & just cut his ties,hes grown a beard & sleeps around the old street's of Hull in boxes ect,my father saw him in the street with some other tramps & demanded he go & talk to him in a bar out of the way of the others,so my uncle agreed but when my father went to buy a beer & a meal for my uncle he turned around & my uncle was "rocking" his body backwards & forwards making a deep moaning noise like he was senile & looking at the floor..!!
my father asked him to move in with him & clean his "act" up But my uncle said "he was happy" as he is living on the streets,he has tried to kill himself & hes got terminal cancer so we are worried about him BUT what can he or us do...??
