Another life lost

I am saddened to watch so many once beautiful, and vibrant people be taken down by addiction. The epidemic in our county is alarming. Just in the past 2 weeks, 3 young women I knew personally lost their battles with pharmaceuticul drugs. Having just had an auto accident, I am experiencing some discomfort and pain. Thank God I understand that I can tolerate a certain amount of pain, and in fact it is my built in warning system to keep me from doing too much while I heal. Ice, Ibuprofen, hot baths, loving friends, great chiropractor and massage therapist are fixing me up safely and wholistically. The opiate pain killer craze has left such a path of destruction in its wake, while a select few have gotten ridiculously wealthy. Please think twice before you accept a script for any of these drugs!
