I don't believe any where in my post it stated to allow them to continue based on mental issues. IRead More was just trying to get across that the reason for peoples behavior when in the grips of addiction isn't necessarily always choice. I advocate getting treatment and knowledge on the subject to better their understanding of why they do what they do. I, myself am a recovering addict, and while I have 5 years clean and sober, the disease of addiction is always lurking and waiting for me let my guard down for just one moment so it can strike. So, back to the having first responders carry Narcan with them, I'm all for it. Just my opinion.
Craig Civic April 14, 2014 at 06:49 pm
@ Joeb170...GREAT POSTS. PERIOD. @CB11: By your logic I'll bet you think it's OK and FINE andRead More ACCEPTED scientifically that you/one CAN have a GENETIC DISPOSITION...to, say, cancer, arthitis, heart disease or any of the other hundreds/thousands of diseases CAUSED BY chemical imbalances and genetics. And that if you get THAT KIND of illness from a GENETIC problem, well, gee, then, THAT'S ok. But, with your logic it is NOT OK when that chemical imbalance or genetic predisposition involves...ADDICTION. Because YOU, being stuck in the 1800's, feel addiction is a "moral" issue and not an 'illness", whether it be genetic or chemical or...NOT. The human body is just one big chemical reaction and it is MORE surpising that there are not even MORE anomalies/illnesses/imbalances than there actually are. The human body is an amazing chemical reaction that, incredibly runs PERFECTLY 99% of the time. It's not fun being part of THAT 1% though. But it is wonderful...maybe harder?...to show empathy and kindness and care to that 1%.
CB11 April 15, 2014 at 08:46 am
I am not "stuck" in the 1800s as you suggest. I also don't live with rose-colored glassesRead More on and think that "feel-good" empathy and misplaced compassion will solve this problem. You can try to educate the addicted but in the end, it is THEIR CHOICE to use or not. You can't be there 24-7, you can't control what they do. No matter how much you counsel and try to point them down the right path and warn them what's down the wrong one, you have no control on what they decide to do. We need to either get tough - and I mean "SWAT team surrounding the building" tough - on the gangs and the dealers who produce and sell the crap or just throw our hands up in the air and start giving out free kits with needles and Narcan. Not holding the addicted responsible for their actions and decisions is enabling and every addict will take advantage of that sort of compassion because it leaves them blameless for what they do. It's called "Tough Love" for a reason!

Not sure which hospital in RI my friend got operated in, but he got MRSA and ended up weeks in aRead More nursing home. - Apparently there are poor hygiene practices going on.
kelseyc April 3, 2014 at 08:17 am
There is a MSRA epidemic going on right now, all over the world, not just in RI. Usually once you'reRead More infected with MRSA once, you're colonized (essentially permanently). That's why, Mike, you received an infection a second time, and also why you'll most definitely be infected again if you ever need another surgery. Good hygiene practices are NOT the only thing that is going to stop an epidemic (what we really need is widespread knowledge about the horrors of antibiotic misuse). But if you all think simply going out of state for health care is going to solve the issue, please do. While we're at it, let's stop vaccinating our kids too because we can just blame infections on the hospitals. Yes, RI Hospital should have been more proactive about quarantining the patient; however, measles should also be all but eradicated in the US, but recent idiots like Jenny McCarthy have slowed that process a bit.
CB11 April 3, 2014 at 09:48 am
I got MRSA a few years ago and had not been anywhere near a hospital or nursing home. I spent a weekRead More in the hospital on heavy antibiotics. The doctors told me that it used to be something they saw people getting from a stay in the hospital or nursing homes but they are now seeing it brought IN to these places on people who are carriers but not affected by it. These people brush up against you, use the same handrail, touch anything that you then touch and you get it. I was told the best deterrent is to WASH! WASH! WASH! your hands often. I was also told to expect to get it again but, luckily, it's been 3 years with no further infection.

Help me embrace a little child, Before it is too late, Or save an older person from The horror of that fate.

I want to fill my calling and To give the best in me, To guard my every neighbour and Protect his property. And if according to my fate, I am to lose my life, Please bless with your protective hand, My children and my wife. The Fireman's Wifes Prayer The table's set, the meal's prepared, our guests will soon arrive. My husband once more disappears with a hope of keeping a child alive. While waiting at home alone, our plans having gone awry My first impulse is merely to sit right down and cry. But soon again I realize the importance of my life When I agreed to take on the duties of being a fireman's wife. While there are many drawbacks, I'll take them in my stride, Knowing "My Daddy saved a life" our children can say with pride. The gusting winds and raging flames may be his final fate. But with God's help I can remain my fireman's faithful mate.
