I come here when I feel down about my dad and his drinking

I come here when I feel down about my dad and his drinking. He is homeless, and no one in my family is able to find him. He drinks, and I worry about where he is and if he's eating or cold. I've also learned that there are a lot of you out there with a situation much worse than the one I'm in. It's sad, and I'm sorry, but it makes me feel better about my dad's situation. It also makes me feel not so alone. Thanks, all of you!!!

Well I'm new here so I'm not sure how much help I can be, but my dad's a heavy drinker. His dad was too. The other night I got home from work after midnight and he was past out on the couch. I tried to wake him to put him in his bed but he risisted. Not violently or anything like that but I was leading him upstairs and he pulled back and slipt. He's the smartest man I know but the losses he suffer during the resession really broke his spirit. Watching him like this 3 - 4 nights a week stwist my insides...
