Gay Cynie, I'm thinking about your challenge ...........................

but I kinda got knocked for a loop tonight .................. will post it when I can be more coherent ........................

Please keep some friends in your thoughts/prayers ………………………
C. was a young man who had a pretty rough upbringing ……………………….. he started using drugs at age 11 ………………………. but, over the past couple of years, he was turning his life around – he had a girlfriend of 6 years’ duration – they were expecting a baby – J. had gone with some friends to visit the friends’ relatives out of state – C. probably decided this was his “last hurrah”, that when J. returned, he would have to buckle down and ‘be responsible’, ie., no drugs, drinking, run-ins with the law, etc.
His body was found Monday – OD’d on some injectable – he was in his early 20s – what those of us older & with a medical bent believe happened was, that he’d been clean for so long, and whatever he put in the syringe was the strength he’d used way back when – and that his body just wouldn’t tolerate that particular insult again ……………………….
He leaves behind J., their unborn baby, his sister, brother-in-law, multiple nephews, and his father – and those of us who only knew him as “C.” ………………………….. rest in peace, C. – your Mom’s waiting for you ………………………………

How tragic! My heart goes out to his family. God bless you for having to post something this awful. I'm thinking of you.

Thank you, Lainy - it's just still so unbelievable ................

I so agree with Lainy. I've seen far too many friends and good souls wander down that road, sometimes beginning a turn before the end and sometimes not, only to end up passing before they made it.

Please put off the tag(s) till things settle more for you, unless you think responding would be a constructive distraction. *hugs*

Another falls to the scourge of drugs, what a wretched thing these drugs are. RIP C.
