I was torn at were to post this, but alas, I chose here.

This weekend I found out that a friend of mine had died from a heroin overdose.
He was only 25, and already done quite a bit of jail time.

It affected me quite deeply and no doubt a lot of others.

So this is to all of you struggling with addictions. Get help before it's too late.

Don't put it off.

I know I replied to your blog, Jade but I think it's amazing that you posted this.
It's such a wake up call to know and a reality check that no one's invincible.

So this is to all of you struggling with addictions. Get help before it's too late.
I took your advice. I called my psychiatrist and said I needed to talk to him. I'll quit lying about it.

I hope you're feeling ok. xo

I'm sorry for your friend. It kills me to know that there are people that all the support networks in the world have somehow failed. I'm really, really sorry.

And Tibby, I'm proud of you for taking this bad news and using it to make positive change in your life. It's a good step.

I am waylaid by Beauty. Who will walk

I'm sorry about your friend Jade!
I truly am glad you posted this.
There are so many people who just don't realize what drugs can do to them!
Maybe this will give them a reality check!!

In a world that she can't rise above.
But her dreams give her wings and she flies to a place where she's loved.

As wild and as reckless as thunder over the land.
Racing with the eagle, soaring with the wind.
Flying? There were times I believed I could."
