Prince should have known better. I'm sorry. I don't do drugs and I'm fucked up. lol

2Freaky this is comng out wanting to spread a little understanding and please don't take it as a attack but Truth and Reality.

A lot of honest people suffer from tiredsome hardwork, bad injuries, and illnesses that effects our bodies worldwide. 2freaky you may be one of the honest that would try to help and find different natural remedies that will help your patients if you were a doctor, or you maybe a person you have a HIGH pain tolerance and can last pass the awful pains of sickle cell, hip & skeletal bone aches, cancer pain, lupus pain, or any other chronic painful aches. But unfortunately we have doctors that are about money over treating the conditions and using patients as science projects and not as a human life. Then you have others who can't handle pain 24hours a day and need a relief. You also have the mind disturbed or emotionally crushed people that abuse drugs (I believe this is the group you find a hard time feeling sorry) if I'm wrong please correct me. I'm going to just stick to Prince group which is the tiredsome hardworking class that just want relief from the pain.



Prince: I can honestly say was not abusing the drug. If he was he wouldn't have been able to operate the last 20 yrs the way he did or even last few days. Prince was mostly becoming addicted to the pain drug that worked for him which in return if he tried to slow down and stop altogether the drug he would have what is called a cold turkey withdrawal. Trust me opiates withdrawals are CRUCIAL and the worse withdrawals within becoming clean rehabs. You probably ask then why would a drug like this be given or used at all. Opiates are used to bring fast relief from pain by triggering the brain signals that informs you that it's pain or something broken in your body and make those signals go numb. Which is why a lot of people use them, especially entertainers and hardworking people. You have to understand that Prince the artist, have workers and people depending on him to perform so they can get paid. Prince knows this and he tries his best to keep going so his camp can be paid and take care of their families and moneytary obligations aka BILLS. So throughout the years he put his body through a lot for his workers and fans to be able to enjoy his music. So most of them concerts you see him doing what we all love came at a price. As the body gets older it breaks down, everything that age does. But at the end of the day nothing is guaranteed for us all except death. But long story short, Please don't believe everyone that overdoses did because they was stupid, trying to get a quick high, or was abusers. It's people out here that is really just trying to get past the pain to go work and take care of their love ones and others feeling that's the only way to help until they work themselves dead. If anything blame the USA work system of for promoting that we should live to work and not work to live.

It's no way we should be charging people for food, healthcare, and homes to stay in. But sending people that's innocent to jail so the prison stocks on wallstreet can gain more money. If America want to do better and help it's citizens then Food, Healthcare, and Homes wouldn't be used as a way of making money off the middle class. People would be able to work and take better care of themselves and their love ones. It's not going to stop people from dying or abusing stuff but it will stop the honest folks from seeking help outside because they can't trust the healthcare system that wants money over everything.

That is very sad...sorry for your loss

the sad part is he tried to and was found and treated and released and they did not or could not inform anyone. So he goes out and gets two perscriptions and pays cash for both and did it a 2nd time. He lived for months and was getting better. He was moved to a nursing home and passed a few hours later.


Sorry, man. I agree they need to tighten things up so that people can't get these pills so easily.

I lost one of best friends and a family member recently. They both hid problem and died of pride. I think of pride as a good thing but sometimes it is not and people do not get help needed.



Yes, the stigma and shame leads too many into not getting help. I believe Prince is included in that.


There is much more awareness now. I see an ad every night for a hotline to call for help and referrals,' because you can't do it alone.'


--Everybody keeps going on about pride and shame but what if you really have pain. Who needs people doubting that someone is in real pain which has already happened with Prince.

Fo sho, I learned long ago to never ever question whether someone is telling the truth when they say they aren't feeling well, have pain, have a stomachache, headache, or whatever. Sure some people do lie about it, but better to give a free pass to a liar than insult someone who is telling the truth.

Yes, it is insulting to shrug off real issues of pain.

me? why because we lived in key west or because my dad knew someone who' gravestone was posted her?

My dad also knew Tennessee Williams, his sister, who was one of the inspirations for the play
The Glass Menagerie went to our church.

We saw famous people like Jimmy Buffett pretty often...
