I had an experience on tuesday that has definately caused me to put things in a whole new perspective. A very close friend of mine suffered effects of an overdose on tuesday night, while with me... The pills had been taken earlier in the day and hit full on later.
To see someone that I care for turning blue, to hear them drowing from their own fluids (aspiration), it was fear beyond belief for me.. knowing that I couldnt do anything to help besides dial 911.
Thankfully, he didnt die and after spending the night in ICU he was released. I hope that he has learned from this experience and that he will keep the memories of what happened close to his heart.
