Alcohol and pills

Got a call from an old friend of mine. A troubled soul, that has had a difficult run so far this lifetime. Best rock-drummer I ever played with and a good guy with a great sense of humor.

He was in the Looneybin for having alcohol induced delirium. He told me I had come to him in a "dream" telling him he would die the day after.
He was still a bit anxious talking about it, me being the "messenger" and all.

We talked a while and i guess he´s gonna be ok.
He is getting sent home tomorrow, allthough he told me he wants to stay. They just give him lots of tranquilizers, wait a couple of nights and send him on his way.

He´s been drinking more or less every day since he discovered beer when we were teenagers. Never was an angry drunk or anything, just partying. But this party has been going on for 20 years now...

Add to this a shitload of pills and a fairly high amphetamine-intake and what do we get?

We get total nervous breakdowns. Regular ones.

He´s been in and out of several treatment homes, several times. For a couple of years he was convinced he had a snake in his belly, that for him represented satan. He always talked openly about these things to me.

Send some love his way wontcha? hug.gif

And they are gonna release him?


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Yup! That is what they do, as soon as the patient is sober, they have to release them. Guess the line is long outside the nuthouse hmm.gif

Self induced hell for sure!

Interesting, Cynical! The snake thing seems to be quite usual with these cases. I´ve heard it too many times for it to be a coincidence...

Is this the origin to the biblical snake? chuckle.gif

Happy friday to all!

¡Hola bongcat! hi5.gif

Sorry to hear about your friend.

Kind of a rough patch just now here and there, it seems 13.gif

Am I imagining things, or are people everywhere finding it more
and more difficult to keep one's thoughts together..?
