Drugs And Bad Health Care

A long time friend of mine is about to die. She started with marijuana in high school forty years ago, got addicted to cocaine the first time she took it, got into other drugs, got Hepatitis C and was waiting for a liver transplant. Some incompetent workers at the hospital made critical errors inserting a catheter a couple of weeks ago, and now she appears to only have a few hours left.

Drugs kill.

    Look for the Light.
    Losing friends or family is always painful, from whatever cause.
    Sorry to hear you are going through this now.
    Look to your “North Star” for grounding ie: your values, your beliefs, your religion.
    Any meaningful life focus is helpful.
    I care.

    To err is human.
    What critical errors were made during the catheter insertion? What type of catheter? How is the error causing her death?
    Sorry for your impending loss. That said, she made poor lifestyle choices.

    I’m sorry to hear about your friend. Too many have made poor choices, and the consequences are often devastating

    Addiction kills. Don’t let drugs abuse you.

    I do not have such a friend, just a very good friend of my wife who followed the same path. She is a lot younger (only in her 20s now), but she did manage to betray us and steal almost $50k worth of silver and jewelry (and a Kitchen stove???? – Scrap value). She would have taken it all had we not discovered her thefts (a little at a time).

    She is in rehab now. I still do not trust her.

    You can take all the drugs you want. But do not expect me to be around to support your habits.

    Drugs kill. Wrong Presidents too. It looks like a lot of Americans are addicted to evil, addicted to free stuff. But free stuff has its price the price is giving up freedom. The moment they realise this it could be too late.I hope she regained her freedom.
