Thanks, I’m going to do out the link now.
I just asked to join. I see I have two friends in the group.
One of the friends I have in the group I have been keeping an eye on. She has become very paranoid, talking very strange.
That is not good. I have to bite my tongue when I go to the stupid APN, most are not well informed about the government involvement.
You can send a FB Friends request to the Vets page to Robert Rose Jr who moderates it. That is why I posted the link for any Vet or civilian with Intractable Pain to have a voice.
Heartbreak. Heartbreak. Just heartbreak.
I know a man who recently lost his young adult daughter to drugs. Do you know what he did about a month after she was found dead, abandoned in a rural party spot by the friends who had been partying with her? He went through all of her Facebook posts and responded to every single one.
An example, like maybe she was showing off her new shirt. Being silly. So dad went on and wrote You look fantastic in that shirt, green was always your color, you have the best smile in the world and I wish I had told you that every day.
This kind of comment on everything she had posted for years. If you want to see how to make tears pour out of your eyes instantly, read this bereaved dads comments. Youd be inhuman not to tear up at his pain.
You didnt read the article well. The girls mother was horrible, didnt want her, was on drugs, gave her daughter drugs, scratch tats, etc. the father and his wife were the good parents raising their 3 kids.
Of course a girl whose mother rejected her would have more personal stresses. Maybe up against more than the other kids without the step situation. But it sounds like dad and the new mom were really good parents.
Good parenting is not going to stop drug addiction.
Yaelle, I’m not here much but when I am I find I agree pretty much with everything you say.
Having been sober for a long time, her tolerance was doubtless significantly lowered.
Of course—since the drug was contraband, and therefore available only on the black market—whatever this poor girl did purchase was of utterly unknown composition and dosage.
Thus, the combination of these factors—reduced tolerance and unknown dosage—resulted in an unspeakably tragic incident in which this girl lost her life.
So I'll merely note the fact that the tidy, oversimplified authoritarian "solution" to this societal problem—Prohibition, in all of its draconian glory—unambiguously contributed to the circumstances surrounding this young girl's tragic death—by gratuitously escalating the risks associated with her engaging in recreational drug use.
I'll further opine that if this sh-t were decriminalized, this girl might—just might—still be alive today. Under such circumstances, there would at least remain the possibility of (yet another) rehab, even if she remained an addict—an option which (I submit) would be infinitely preferable to what occurred under the current state of affairs.
Let the floodgates of righteous indignation—and the attendant abuse of those who decry the Tyranny of Prohibition—now gush forth.
I deeply regret the comments which invariably emanate from these threads, as the Prohibitionist crowd and the decriminalization crowd trade sarcastic insults—all while a girl's father grieves—so I'm going to try to refrain from such shenanigans, conclude my remarks, and pray that this poor girl's soul is received into the unconditionally loving arms of our Lord Jesus Christ...
Clearly you are nuts. ;)
