We even try suicide...

Last night I'm sitting at home and the phone rings at 11pm. The caller is someone who is struggling to stay sober. Many AA's won't go talk with a drinking alcoholic, but I do recall Tradition 3. They were asking for help, so I paid a visit. Being forgetful, I forgot my cigs in my car, so I went back outside to get them. While outside, my friend took a massive overdose of psychiatric medication. It reacted so quickly, my friend was in a coma before the medics arrived. They are now in Intensive Care, on a ventilator, and still comatose. Please pray for my friend. I'm going now back to the hospital and pray my butt off, and read to them. I know those in a coma can still hear. Thank God for another 24 hours. God bless you for doing the beautiful things you all do. I love my blogger friends. AB.

Sometimes I don't know how to cope . . . my son has overdosed 3 times in the last year, right under my nose. He has survived all three times. How many attempts will it take before he actually finishes the job -- or before he starts to GET IT. He's not dead for a reason -- he has unfinished business, work to do in this life. I want to hug him and slap him at the same time for putting me through this. I feel that I have to mentally prepare myself every morning to open his bedroom door . . . just in case he won't wake up.
