Dougie Poynter In Rehab
before I start, for those of you who don't know who Dougie Poynter is, hes the bassist/vocalist for a band called McFly
I want to explain exactly how i feel about Dougie Poynter being in rehab and all the commotion over it #weloveyoudougie
when I heard the news that dougie WAS in fact in rehab..
of course my first reaction was WHAT?!
I mean when you think of people who would go into Rehab, Dougie wouldn’t even be on the list! so of course it came as a massive shock…
The reasoning has been said that this is due to him not dealing with his break-up with The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford (although in my personal opinion this should never have happened - not because im jealous like some mcflyers were- because shes not a nice person, and she treat him pretty badly from stuff ive seen - though of course not knowing them personally i don’t know the full story)
this was weird to me because as far as anyone knew they had broken up months ago, so either this has been building up to a point where hes exploded with emotion, or theyd gotten back together (more likely the first one)
when the news got out everyone was of course upset and spreading the love for dougie all over the world, online and off, twitter, youtube, tumblr, facebook & more! and this was great support from the McFlyers & Pioneers…at first.
now its starting to get a little silly..
people are CRYING over it, spamming the internet with upset/rage about it…yes i’m upset that Dougie is in rehab, but i think a few people are forgetting whats actually happened…and thinking a lot worse in their heads..people see REHAB and think the worst..
Dougie checked HIMSELF into The Priory because he was/is depressed about his split, he has done this & moved the 1st 3 days of the tour, so that he can be happy again FOR HIS FANS so as not to let them down for the tour, and also be happier in himself. he needs some space away from the media and craziness that is his life to clear his head and get away from it all, something that is very hard to do when you are famous... From what the boys have said, hes doing well, and getting better, and what people need to remember at the end of the day, he WILL get better, hes just depressed (i can say that because ive been there myself, depression is an awful thing, but u do recover from it), and when i say hes JUST depressed i dont mean it as a throwaway thing, but people are tweeting/online blogging like hes DYING, or has a terminal illness or something, people go into rehab every single day for depression and noone pays them any cares, suddenly Dougie goes in and all hell breaks loose!
I’m not saying don’t support Dougie, not at all, Dougie is my favourite McFlyer and always will have a special place in my heart, but what he needs right now, is positive thinking, and well wishers, not people crying and getting upset, I’m sure he’s done enough of that on his own.
I hope you can understand what I’ve said, and get my point of view, I mean this in the best possible way, but i really needed to get this out, and i feel now i have
