Just sucky
Don't really need support, just a place to put this.

Husband's much younger cousin (mid-30s) was found Thursday unresponsive. Apparent accidental overdose - morphine and Xanax. He was apparently the more responsible parent of three young kids and had custody. When his father showed up to go to work with him the kids told him that 'daddy wouldn't wake up'. He was alive but barely. He was taken off life support later that day and died almost immediately.

Three kids now have one worthless parent. Feel so bad for the kids.

I say accidental overdose because there is no reason to believe it was a suicide attempt, just the nearly inevitable result of flying too close to the flame for too long. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Swing with me a while, we can listen to the birds call, we can keep each other warm.
Swing with me forever, we can count up every flower, we can weather every storm.

Whoa - that's shitty, Anj. So sorry for the kids & family. Heart


How did he get the drugs? Previous surgery leftovers or just recreational standbys? Either seems accidental but ... just wondering if there was any indication he was slowly sliding into that subtly darker area of "I just don't care".

Aww I'm sorry.

From what I have been told he had a thing for Xanax - no idea where he scored the morphine.

No decline. He had a successful tree removal business, had just been paid a substantial sum for a job he did for the state. And in this past week bought three big trucks for the business and dropped them off to be customized the day prior to his death.

I have a hunch the morphine was not part of his usual buzz. Where he got it is still a mystery.

I hurt for the kids. I know what it's like to have to tell kids their father is dead when they are young. Sucks - a lot.

RE: Just sucky
Those poor kids No will you have the opportunity here and there to be a positive influence? Like maybe once every few months or so offer to babysit, take them on a fun little excursion? I know you got a lot of love to give to little ones, Anj. I'm so sorry Hug

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

RE: Just sucky
That sucks. My sympathy goes to the kids an family.

Maybe a rookie mistake, a failed first try of opiates?
