You can love your Grandma who accused you of stealing her hidden cash because she had Dementia, but that doesn't mean you don't want to hide her dentures for calling you a thief. That is, until you understand , Dementia.

Whether you believe Prince or his fans projected this "all powerful" image, is one of the same as you projecting him as misunderstood and stressed out. In effect , both projections and perceptions cancels out the science of one who is addicted. The premise here being that regardless of what is being revealed, Prince became something that he formerly was not.

Yes, you are correct. Everything was magnified. And with that personality type, death is merely another "option".

The urine test by Dr. S on 4-20-16 showed:



hydrocodone 253/mg/nl


hydromorphone 85/mg/nl

Hydromorphone is Dilaudid. I dont remember that any pills at PP coming back positive for Dilaudid.






Interesting- that’s exactly what his “Dr D” said from the get go. He insinuated fentanyl patches and dilaudid.

This guy said he supplied P until 2008. I think P started addressing his hip issue around that time, had surgery in 2010, fell off the wagon sometime afterward and proceeded with another “Dr D”...

This guy nailed every drug that showed up in Prince, it’s hard not to believe him in hindsight

Has this been mentioned yet: of all the counterfeit pills they tested only SOME of them contained Fentanyl. I think this is important. It tells me that Prince had probably been getting these counterfeit pills for a while and that he had no adverse reactions and kept taking them... However, the last batch he acquired were laced with Fentanyl and this is where the biggest problems began. His addiction was not suddenly worse or any different than before but the pills he was taking WERE (even though they appeared to be the exact same pills). Even worse, since the less dangerous pills and the Fentanyl laced ones looked the same and he had a good deal of both-every time he took a pill he had no way of knowing which batch he was taking. On the plane he probably took the normal amount of pills he normally did BUT they were the bad ones with Fentanyl. On 4/21, he again probably took the normal amount but they the bad batch. I also think the odd behavior that Judith talks about, him wanting to sleep so much, talk oddly, and some of the health issues he discussed during those few weeks were caused by the Fentanyl. So, this bad batch of pills made his addiction to pain killers more obvious and more dangerous rather than his problems or pain suddenly spiraling out of control. [Edited 4/22/18 0:19am]


It's actually the part of this whole mess that bothers me most. It's all entirely too damn coincidental for me. Prince supposedly had an opiate drug problem for years that some people closest to him seemed to have known about or at least suspected, while others didn't. Yet, there seemed to be no serious concern nor intervention until after the Moline incident and even then, IMHO, it was just half-assed to say the least because of the amount of pills that were found in his home when he died. There seemed to be more concern about shredding documents and deleting emails but there were pills all over the damn place just waiting to be found and corroborate the narrative. And Prince who was supposedly on board with getting help, the very next day, somehow decided, "Hey one more go 'round for the road." and just so happened to pick the pills with the Fentanyl, even though NONE of the pills were labeled as such. disbelief

Exactly! Also, how much did he take??? No fentanyl was found in the test results from his visit the day before with Dr. S ... and then the next night he "accidently" overdosed??? So how many pills were in his system??? The stuff was in his blood, liver, and stomach. Did he take a whole bottle??? Were his stomach contents checked??? I'm not seeing anything on that end

They interviews Kirks Dentist and during the interview she noted that she knew a sound guy who worked with P in Austrailia she stated the guy had to quit after 10 days because P displayed such erratic behavior.


Also to note;

In Moline there was no testing of the pill that KJ gave the Dr to see if it was authentic or counterfeit. It was only visually identified as codene by the stamp.

Maybe this is why the family was looking at charging someone for malpractice.


Was the doctor asked if it was real or counterfeit? Or was he just asked what the pill was?

Either way, there would be ZERO case. If anything it would implicate Kirk.

I think it shows huge ignorance if you have the biggest music star in world and someone from his circle is scoring conterfeit pain killers from the street. Does this person understand the danger of conterfeir pain killers? They could not put 2 and 2 together at Moline? I can understand Prince's privacy and scripts filled under another name but I can't fathom getting stuff illegally from streets. If people were getting scripts for Prince and stuff given to Prince was from street that is shady AF.

What are you outraged about today? CNN has not told you yet?

No it was somebody with the name of Pakulski.

I thought I read somewhere that at least one pill was tested at the hospital and came back as Tylenol.

The doctor asked more than once that she be permitted to do bloodwork.

Each time P refused.

Page 168 item number 266. The pill was not tested, it was sent to the pharmacist and was identified by the number on the pill.

The "serious illness" theory: There's nothing in anything I've read that alludes to Prince having a serious illness like cancer. No one mentions him complaining of anything other than tingling/pain in his hands and leg (he saw a chiropractor in his final weeks) and vomiting. In the interviews the people say he seemed generally healthy, but thinner lately and having the "flu." He had no regular doctor (per Kirk) and Dr S said he had seen Prince only twice (the 2 April appointments).




-----




there was a filled prescription bottle of Ondansetron, filled at Walgreens, that P was taking, that was prescribed to Kirk Johnson...Onadansetron is used to relieve the extreme nausea caused by chemotharapy and HIV/AIDS medicines...


Many patients who are going thru withdrawal take Onadansetron

Yeah, RJOrion. If you try to posit anything other than accidental overdose of someone who was addicted to pain killers due to hip pain who kept his addiction hidden from everyone his entire life you're wrong wrong wrong. That's the theory and they are sticking to it. lol

Because Prince probably did it himself. I am not saying there weren't enablers but I don't think they did this. They wouldn't need to--they could have just gotten doctors. He did it because he wanted to do so underground and secretly. Prince just being "private". I think he knew what he was taking too, but at one point he just stopped caring. I think it was suicide. He knew what he took in Molene nearly killed him. Then he went back and convinced his circle that he was on his way to recovery probably to get them to leave him alone and then when it came close to when he would be expected to actually go through with recovery, he took the stuff again. He may have only taken 3 or 4 pills, but he knew that stuff was bad and stopped caring. It would be hard to call it suicide if you believe he didn't know. but there is a good chance that he did. Remember he was being really evasive about what was in those pills with those trying to help him at the hospital. Doctors can't say anything to the press and they don't call the police unless you are selling that shit..he knew that. Why be evasive? And what about that elevator? He would stage something like that. Dude was symbolic as hell. Its like he laid down to go to sleep. There was no trauma or forced anything. He consumed the pills, laid down in the elevator like to sleep and then died.

Hm. The dentist. He reported that P had been foaming at the mouth during the Moline incident. Judith Hill reported some odd repeated movements. What was that all about?

Kirk had a cracked tooth that he was supposed to get fixed and had an appointment for it, but had to cancel because they had to go to Atlanta, he called and cancelled and ask the dentist to give him some pain meds until he could reschedule. She did. Ended up that they were never taken and found in the trash. She was concerned the OD in Moline was because of that script she gave KJ, he asked her if those pills would cause foaming of the mouth because that's what happened to P. KJ then asked her what he should do because it was looking like he was addicted and she advised a drug treatment facility.

Yes, this was Prince's bedroom that he used every day per Judith and Meron.

As an aside; I always thought Judith seemed like a really sweet girl and her opennes and honesty during the interview with the sheriff raised my opinion even further. I got really REALLY pissed the way some others (like Meron) seemed more concerned about hiding things, even after his death, over getting to the bottom of the truth.

Also, notice the part where Sheila E was actually trying to coach people and seemed to be telling them not to say anything???

Two bedrooms inside PP? Are you sure? It doesn't look very Princely!

I prefer the decor in the other bedroom. It was LAID! Maybe P felt more at ease in this one.Judith said the bathroom was plain also.

I think we should love him more because he struggled. I don't like the image of the all powerful, svengali, never faultering music macine who acted difficult just for shits and giggles. I can more relate to the guy who lashed out because he was stressed out, lonely and misunderstood.






And there we have it. Finally. Some people relate more to the idea of P as the flawed individual and that's why, I think, you push that part of the story further than the evidence allows.


I think everyone recognizes that Prince had faults. No one is perfect. Heck, this site has ALWAYS pointed out his faults over the 20 years I've been coming here. But the majority of us are trying to stick to the facts as they are presented and do not want to paint him as anything but who he was. We can accept the faults he had, others aren't so accepting and want to lash out at him for having those faults and want to paint him in a very negative light.


I don’t get it, it’s like some people are getting sick satisfaction out of knowing his struggles or being able to proclaim they were right all along or whatever. Just sad.

I think you may be right to some extent, but remember this is a bombshell of a release so it’s only natural for people to what to share opinions, thoughts and discuss it. I also think in light of what we now know, in reality we knew almost nothing about P the man. He will forever remain the GOAT musical genius, but people must be allowed to discuss their thoughts and feelings.




Too much projection though. Everyone now is an arm chair psychiatrist or doctor.

you are missing my point. He is more sympathetic now. Prince's behavior has been called "ass-holey" for years. Not all of it fairly but still he had some faults. It is nice to know that those faults came from a place of feeling and emotion, not just callous manipulation, entitlement, and ego. Its sad but it humanizes him. I don't agree with demonzing however. His good characteristics should not be ignored.

But the non sequitor comment of vomit found in his mouth is what my post was about. Drama - saying the worst after the worst, or what? Very undignified pile on image, there should be a reason.

I have been following everone's comments here for the past few days, all very interesting and good points of view. i will hold my own POV for now, but I do want to say i think it strange and distasteful all of this information was released 1-2 days before his 2nd anniversary, and as for the photo/video of his corpse being made available, it is beyond words.

Anyone who knew anything about PRINCE knew he was deeply private and I belive showing those photos was down right distasteful and disrespectful. could they have waited a few days, blanked out his body, or leaked what was about to come.

I m not sure who made the decision but shame on you for for feeding the tabloids. I hope when the dust settles and you are reflecting - you realise they was a right and wrong way to do this and you did real WRONG.




100% agree

What I'm finding particularly depressing about the last few days is that Prince's demise seems to be in large part down to his desire for control of his image and for his personal privacy - and now his image is being shredded and his privacy comprehensively invaded.

Makes me think if, somehow, he'd had even a hint of how this might play out across the tabloids in the days after his death, he'd have sought help sooner.

I agree, it is. I just keep thinking how Prince would be reacting to all of this, being out there on the net. He would not be happy with any of this, at all. And it's beyond sad.

All this reminds me of "Reflection" bodies wear out. And like Indian Jones said, "it's not the years honey, it's the mileage..."


And he did say “I can't play the guitar at all these days s so I can keep my mind on this piano) and get better" Which many took as he was focusing Paino... but what if he was being more literal?

He’s more sympathetic now because we know he was dealing with painkiller dependency and that makes him more human? I never thought of him as anything but human. He might be a celebrity but he’s still a human being like you and me, with all the good and flaws that every human has.

All this information has done is make me incredibly sad. Sad to know of the pain he was dealing with throughout the last 10 years or so of his life. And sad that his most private details are out there for people to pick through and analyze to deaths. Everyone have become doctors and psychiatrists now. At least where he is now he’s no longer in pain and hopefully is oblivious to psychoanalysis going on here and elsewhere.

The concert at Target Center the other night was amazing. Seeing him on the big screen feeling like he was right there on stage. And he looked and sounded so good. The band (including Kirk) were also amazing. There was so much love in that arena. It was all about the music. That’s what I will chose to remember him by. 💜

pnv said: EXACTLY. If he was addicted or dependent for years, as many are suggesting, what was different about that time specific time period? Something changed big time and he lost his bearings and maybe will to go on. Depression and anxiety can and do come from deep grieving. I’m still going through the documents so I have not read everything but someone mentioned that he was prescribed Clonidine. Aside from helping overcome withdrawals, it is also prescribed for anxiety. I worked in a doctors office and often saw it prescribed for anxiety due to death of a loved one.

I’m sorry, it’s not that I don’t think P at one point in is life had a feelings for DM. I think much if his depression, grief and anxiety pertaining to her death is he saw what drugs did to her body and in the end she died much too soon because of the role drugs played in her life. Regardless of the reasons for taking drugs, I believe that Vanity’s death brought home the fact that he was facing the same fate due to years of drug use and the toll it took on his body. By the time Vanity died, we now know P’s drug use was not controllable, nor was he able to beat the addiction on his own. IMHO, V’s death made him see the real possibility of his own future. Pretty scary.

Your statement DD55 : " We now know that P's drug use was not controllable, nor was he able to beat the addiction on his own", is the chief cornerstone of how he lived his life when not in the public's eye.

No one wants to label Prince an "addict"( especially the fanatics) but in reality, this is what he became. When that started is up for debate, but the actual condition/disease, is not up for debate.

Prince, can not be excluded from the countless scientific studies/data that supports that the brain of an addict is continuously tormented by numerous triggers. I would be willing to bet that seclusion, depression, anxiety, anger, hate , pain, were all triggers that fueled a pattern of usage.

Lastly, and most controversial ,is that the biggest triggers of them all, was his music and image. The two represent a vicious cycle of daily activity that can not be quantified as mutually exclusive.

A single chord structure, a light switch in Studio B, turning in after a show, waking up, looking at a piano, reading something about Denise, a jarred memory of a child , a song he heard on Spotify, etc. etc. etc... indicates triggers that are endless, and if ignored, is shear ignorance concerning the basic rudimentary functions of the human brain when addiction has set in . If it were not so, then Prince's brain should be placed in the Smithsonian as an example of the only brain that was not affected by a triggered activity that is perceived by the brain as a need as opposed to a want. Once you understand the science, you understand the pattern .

One should accept that this physical and psychological dependency , is in fact a disease . Terms used to describe this disease, are often crude, but it does not negate the fact that Prince represents the classic definition of an addict and can not be swept under the rug simply because you love Prince.



AMEN

Yes but there's no evidence Prince was talking just tylenol, even if he mentioned that drug to Dr S. In fact when Prince said to Dr S on April 20 that he had taken "tylenol" that day, Dr S pressed him on what else was in the "Tylenol" (Prince said he didn't know, I believe.) Tylenol (Acetaminophen) is one ingredient in opioid drugs like percocet.

I thought I read somewhere that at least one pill was tested at the hospital and came back as Tylenol.


The doctor asked more than once that she be permitted to do bloodwork.


Each time P refused.




The brand name Tylenol keeps coming up. Isn't that relatively mild stuff as far as pain meds go?



Yes but Tylenol is not an opioid. Is it even a prescription medication or over the counter?

The Tylenol was Tylenol with codeine. It was in the reports

I think everyone recognizes that Prince had faults. No one is perfect. Heck, this site has ALWAYS pointed out his faults over the 20 years I've been coming here. But the majority of us are trying to stick to the facts as they are presented and do not want to paint him as anything but who he was. We can accept the faults he had, others aren't so accepting and want to lash out at him for having those faults and want to paint him in a very negative light.



I don’t get it, it’s like some people are getting sick satisfaction out of knowing his struggles or being able to proclaim they were right all along or whatever. Just sad.


I agree, it is. I just keep thinking how Prince would be reacting to all of this, being out there on the net. He would not be happy with any of this, at all. And it's beyond sad.


Exactly. We know he was dealing with pain, we know he was taking pills to deal with the pain and we know that the pills got the best of him (as they do so many others, hence why the US government has declared it an epidemic). I don’t need to know any more. I struggle to understand why anyone needs to know more. neutral
