Oxy can go in any orifice, mouth, nose, veins. Hell you can even shove it in your ass and get high. Evil shit. My mum was prescribed it for rheumatoid arthritis in her back, within a week she was on the nod, not making any sense and sleepwalking to mention just a few of the symptoms. Doctors advice on it: ” ok we will take you off the oxy and here’s a prescription for fentanyl”. The entire health system is fucked.
I started taking her to the local public pool every day and within a month her symptoms got better, About 6 months ago i put a pool in so she could swim whenever she wants, best thing i ever did, you wouldn’t even know she has arthritis now. She runs circles around me.

Was your mom successful in getting off the fentanyl, too? It was literally the hardest thing I ever went through.

she wasn’t on it long enough to get addicted to it, she tried one patch and didn’t really feel much she said….. What was REAL hard to get her to kick was the “one arm bandit’s” but that’s a whole other story.
Grats on your recovery Kalechrus. Stay strong, one day at a time.

I wonder where he is at in the stages of grief/dying- maybe the acceptance stage, therefore, his smile knowing he will be joining his children and family and fiance.

Thank you Mandy for this montage of the mental mind.

Our instinct hard wires us for survival but, life teaches many of us that there really are worse things than dying.

I see your point. He probably is at several stages all at once because the losses that he suffered and his diagnoses occurred at different times.

Yes, even for one event, a person can go through the stages of grief/death/dying, and move back and forth through those stages at various times. I believe what we are seeing in the video is a “snapshot” of where this man is on that model. It could be what we are seeing is the aggregate of the mental state of the stages, expressed as a smile, where he is in surrender and at peace, knowing his physical, emotional and mental suffering will end.

As an Albertan and formerly part of the oil and gas industry, I can vouch for Fort McMurray being a bad place to be for those suffering from drug addiction.

There’s also a significant problem with use of hard drugs up there even by those who have gainful employment. Part of the issue has to do with the mandatory drug testing. Marijuana stays in the body for weeks on end whereas harder stuff does not. Therefore one can test clean during the week and knock back cocaine or heroin on the weekends.

Thats what makes that shit so addictive, its completely out of the body as soon as the high goes. Stands to reason why there aren’t really weed addicts, although it does exist, its a mental addiction, not a chemical addiction like barbiturates.

Why would he smile when talking about death?
Relief. God speed my friend, God speed. Your suffering is at an end.

“Sometimes the people who can help you don’t always look like you…” Very true and thank you for ending on a high note. (I’m still laughing)

Very interesting cross section. The dynamics of hope and support systems is very true. Never knew until visiting Vancouver that it is the homeless capital of Canada, which makes sense when you think about the climate, probably the warmest in Canada in the winter. My wife and I saw a couple who had converted shopping carts into chariots pulled by their rotweilers. Quite a sight coming down the sidewalk at you. Though there are many different stories, most of the homeless I encounter in Illinois are clearly mentally ill. In earlier times the state viewed the care and housing of these individuals as it’s responsibility. Not any more. Many are harmless, but I have also been accosted by people who were not. The local police refuse to arrest them for disorderly conduct because they will be I bonded out of the county jail before the paperwork is done. This creates a sitiation where everybody just waits until they do something bad enough to get felony charges. This has made jails and prisons the number one mental health provider in the country. Backasswards if you ask me. Though it certainly was abused in some areas, I think the old county work… Read more »

i had forgotten about the work farms. They were good ideas. idle minds breed mischief. There is so much we need to bring back, why on earth we quit using it, is beyond me.

Wouldn’t it be better to allow drug addicts access their drugs and help them get clean if they want to? It’s obvious to me that making drugs illegal hasn’t worked.

Prohibition doesn’t work and creates more crime. America proved that to the world from 1920 – 1933. Portugal made drugs legal. The world watched and waited thinking Portugal would have all of Europe’s drug addicts living there. It turns out the money spent on incarcerating the drug addicts was spend on rehabilitation. The drug problem has dramatically decreased in Portugal and rehab much less expensive than incarceration. The issue is the state makes a lot of money keeping drugs illegal.

Omgggg… How hypocritical can you get?

I looked up the “invisible people” vlog on youtube:

https://www.youtube.com/user/invisiblepeopletv/about

“The purpose of this vlog is to make the invisible visible. I hope these people and their stories connect with you and don’t let go. I hope their conversations with me will start a conversation in your circle of friends.

After you get to know someone by watching their story, please pause for a few moments and write your thoughts. By keeping this dialog open we can help a forgotten people.”

Apparently, they don’t like you sharing and commenting on their video. I wish I could have seen it now.

Can anyone shed some light on why this video was “removed as per Invisible People’s request”? So, censored right? What people censored it? Youtube? People who don’t like the body language exposed? What?

I think I understand why he smiled. I got the feeling he smiled because the losses he has suffered, the timing of the losses and his diagnoses is unbelievable. His fiance died last year, his son died “a couple of months ago” and his brother was “murdered a couple of days later.” I think he is over-whelmed by all the losses plus his diagnoses. He is experiencing several deep emotions all at once. The death of his older son also brought back the trauma of losing the 5 year old and we don’t know the circumstance of the child’s death. I think he believes that his life events are so bazaar that he wouldn’t believe someone if they told them this story yet it has happened to him. The reason why I say this is because something similar happened to me. I had a series of severe traumas very close together along with great financial difficulties which were topped off by the natural death of someone I had been dating for a few months. I actually laughed at the situation because all the events added up seemed unreal… like a over dramatized Lifetime movie that no one would think is… Read more »

if it was the ‘unbelievable’ mindset we would have seen smiling in other places…one smile does not back that up

I didn’t get to see the video but did get the gist of the content – Opioids, the scourge of the USA. an effective culling programme.

Walmart guy,strikes me as a person that is always smarter than the boss.Hence,his bad luck and “few bad decisions”. He thinks he’s just to damn smart for the people and field he was in. I would be willing to bet,he is estranged from his children. I also highly doubt he’s a conservative. I feel as tho ,I should say something positive about him. Unlike the canadian,i wouldn’t castrate this one.

The only thing the canadian guy didn’t know was why he is an addict. He was like this in his early years.Never knew what he wanted to do with his life other than to skate by and avoid responsibility and waste air. I hope to hell he never had children. We should catch and castrate these people just as if they were stray dogs in the neighborhood.
