  1. My friend Annie kept eating piece of her wheelchair they'd send her to the hospital and then put her in the quit room on the floor she would not listen to them they usually ask if I could go calm her down she liked me she was really big and could be a handful and we were good friends so I always went and sat down on the floor by the door. I'd get her laughing well she swallowed her wheelchair break and had just gotten back from the hospital and had stomach surgery and had ripped out the Staples her insides were hanging out in her lap there was blood everywhere. They were freaking out. I went and sat down on the floor with Annie and I talked with her they were calling Em's everyone else was being so mean to her. She told me on the way back she swallowed the other break I new I needed to say something quick I told the staff. Little did I know that was the last time we were going to talk she dead later that evening.

  2. I had a friend named Christina we were inseparable I was moving and she stole an art piece I worked on before I moved. Kate miss drawings we'd write one day the letters just stopped my other friends in Ohio told me she had killed herself.

  3. I had a great friend named Katie she suffered from drug addiction and anorexia. Well her mom found out that she was using because they let her go back home. Her mom was on the phone with the doctors sending her back to the hospital. And she ran into the kitchen and stabbed herself in the stomach the place we lived really sucked. She didn't want to come back.

  4. I had the funnest friend Melissa she loved music as much as me. One day she came out as a lesbian to her crush and they made fun of her really bad she was allowed to leave her group home she went and bought a bunch of pain pills and pulled herself.

  5. I had a neighbor back home we were pretty close. He suffered from addiction and polydipsia and they'd tease him about drinking toilet water he killed himself.

  6. I've had staff I was close with get fed up with the job and end up in the psycwards and on meds because of the gosipp were I live.

  7. I had a friend who my mom was trying to cheat with her dad both parents died. Then her sister of an overdose and shortly after she could not take it and of leaving behind three boys and a daughter.

  8. I lost my momma to addiction this year. I won't be around my sister because she is going down the same road as momma and I can't bear to see her die. So I'm not in contact with her anymore.

  9. I've had drugs ruin the lives of the people I love. And suicide I'm not suicidal but this type of music has its own meaning to the pain I have experience where I live right now my bedroom reaks of pot and I don't touch drugs I don't drink or smoke. Because I see what it can do. I push everyone out of my life. It's easier when you have been left behind and given up to not bond with other people there just going to leave or die or move. I like my solitude. Some call it isolation to each there own.

  10. I had a few friends all sharing one room one had a seizure disorder from a bad overdose Paula was her name she was having back to back grand mal seizures another friend Lisa who burnt herself with gasoline and matches. And the other girl we weren't friends but got along. But because of the burns Lisa received she had issues with her eyes staying in the sockets they'd pop out of her head sometimes. And staff have to use gauze or a wash cloth to pop them back in she had a box in her throat because she breathe in when she burnt herself. So she make this hissing noise but it was distinctive you knew that she was freaking out. The other girl I wasn't close with was a head cutter. The skin on her head was paper thin she bleed Easley they all went off at the same time. The staff had a shortage. Paula was having a severe seizure threw up and was choking on it Lisa eyes popped out when she seen Paula choking from the stress. And the other girl took the opportunity to rip her scalp wide open staff started to freak out had to leave the one on ones to deal with the issues and tramas. We had to makes on one on one stuck a nice up his buttocks and ruptured his colon so he was hands on the other was a stomach cutter and when the staff went to deal with the ladies the one rip his colonoscopy bag off and the other guy ripped his binder off and started to pull out his stomach Staples. He eventually killed himself after leaving ripped out his intestines and started throwing them at people. So it takes a lot to freak me out I have seen some crazy and gross stuff in my time eating dinner with this stuff going on you kinda get numb to the craziness. But what I can't stand is people who deliberately mess with me when I'm minding my own business. I don't hate people just had enough drama for a lifetime I was the youngest one and learned bad habits that I don't do anymore but your past has a way of haunting you if you know what I mean.

  11. A whole bunch of us kids were all in a room together I wasn't the oldest so I wasn't in charge that day the adults were all drugging in the living room. And Stephanie got a hold of a band new bottle of cold medicine and drank it her mom was freaking out. They were high they were not going to call the cops. They stuck there fingers down her throat and made her throw up her eyes were darting around in her head. After they made her throw up they went back to the drugs and said for me to watch her.

  12. Just got done listening to Andrew Yang speak at the Iowa Democratic Party Liberty and Justice Celebration and it reminded me of this song. Yang2020!

  13. was reminded of this song today after hearing US Presidential candidate Andrew Yang's speech in Iowa today, which he titled "The Kids Aren't Alright"…

  14. Just watched a campaign speech by Andrew Yang in Iowa that was basically the title of this song. It made me want to listen again because I love some of these classic Offspring tracks. It just made me realize even more that the speech was echoing the sentiments of the song. I don't know, I just wanted to share my thoughts in this moment and maybe someone else will have similar experiences to me or new insight or something.

    I don't know, I just felt like it was important to express myself for once

  15. The kids got caught up in a gangstalking program,but Jenny having 2 kids us a blessing, Russell's pot addiction is alright

  16. Omg didn't here this song since my child hood I use to always play it on my walkman brings back a lot of good memories and a lot of sad memories miss my friends that have all passed away . Up ireland

  17. Lets stand back and look. Russia& America obviously have the same issues. We speak differently. But really the same humans. Live in Love.. Not hate.. Stay positive! Look too the Sky
    Keep your chin Up!
    When days are dark.. Friends are few! Love everyone and everything! South Africa!

  18. one of my first video clip on my first PC on 2001 year. and yeah, i'm from Russia – balalaika, bears, vodka etc

  19. When i was younger and heard this song i didnt underatand the lyrics and enjoyed it for its upbeat rythm. Now, im 29 and understand the lyrics, and the geberal message of the song. Its not a depressing song at all. The message is that life is cruel, your life is fragile, anything can happen, but that doesnt mean there isnt happyness or a way to achieve your dreams its kind of an acceptance that life is hard but remaining optimistic through it all. So i really apriciate the depth of the song as an adult which is the mark of an amazing artist in my opinion.

  20. With the current dope problem, I feel this song is more relevant now than when it was released. I only know two people besides myself from high school who aren’t dead, homeless or in prison.

  21. I used to listen to this when I was about 16.
    Now, today, this album turns 21 years old, I'm 37 and it definetly smells like teen spirit.

  22. This song hits you right in the gut if you listen. I’m not where I want to be, but I’m not where I don’t want to be if that makes sense. I’m 22 with 2 kids and a wife. Struggling to give them a good life. But I’ll make sure it’ll happen it’ll just take longer than I thought when I was younger.
