    Yes, I can see how it came off that way by my use of "experts" but I genuinely meant people who have a good understanding of the process...

    The guy probably just moved to a different room after he complained about his incoherent roomate who kept screaming.
    When I was in Tahoe Forest overnight for the injury I mentioned upthread, they gave me a morphine button with like a 10 minute delay between doses. It beeped every time I administered. My dipshit roommate kept calling the nurse's station. Like all night. In my doped-up state, it took me a while to figure out what he was mumbling when they came in. He kept saying, "You called me. What was that beep?" I eventually figured out that he thought the beep from my morphine drip was the nurse's station calling him, and then he responded by calling them back.

    That was a shitty night.

I know nothing of the former. But the latter is made of courage, and skill, and grace in the presence of the possibility of death. If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Someone posted that the junkies don't really care if they OD because they think they'll just get fixed up with Narcan by the medics. The junkies I've seen around South Everett sure don't seem like they care if they die or not. There's a greenbelt next to a building we handle that looks like a scene out of a zombie apocalypse movie from all of the drug addicts living back there. When the Sheriff shows up it's like a zombie apocalypse spartan mud run, pretty scary to witness.

    In 96 percent of this year's fentanyl deaths, coroners found other recreational substances. Cocaine was the most commonly-mixed drug, found in 46 percent of fentanyl deaths. That's more than heroin, which was found in just 30 percent of the deaths. Ethyl alcohol and meth were also found to be mixed with fentan

    Times my simple son will shake me to,
    syringe still hanging like a feather from my arm.
    What are you always doing, he asks.
    Flying, I say. Show me how, he begs.
    And finally, I do. You’d think
    the sun had gotten lost inside his head,
    the way he smiled.

    That's better than the neurosurgery patient I had who thought his urinal was a telephone and kept trying to make calls on it, or the patient with burned hands in splints who thought his hands were sharks attacking him.

Useful but not a fan. Friends: "Well dude, at least they gave you the good drugs." Yeah. I'd never take it recreationally. Fuck that noise. Also, being semi-conscious with one leg in the air and hearing power tools during the procedure because I had a spinal going and wasn't under general has to be one of my top 5 worst life memories.

    On the policy/street aspect, I'm quite surprised this hasn't been posted in here yet:

    It's long. But do yourself a favor and read it. I don't agree with his conclusions re weed legalization, but the dude knows his shit.

    Portugal is smart. We should be like Portugal.
    very good read

    Actually two parties in Canada are discussing going the portugal way and decriminalizing all drugs

    Just found out I lost a old friend from the hometown and a time that exists mostly in legend and drunken tales every time the survivors of the same gather.

    Typical story that makes you even madder when you hear it, just not sure who to be mad at. Car accident, bad injury, pills, stress on the family and marriage and then god knows what. As quickly as it started it’s all over. ALL OVER. All I know is two very young kids don’t have a dad anymore and that should be enough make anyone pause.

    Good family, good town, good dad, good everything. Knew better, knew of cautionary tales, none of it apparently mattered.

    Fuck this vile shit.
