I just realized that the “official cause of death” for Phillip Seymour Hoffman has been revealed. Yep, the barrage of ignorant jokes and comments are in full force.
My thoughts are with his family, his friends who now have been notified of the expected and not surprising “official cause of death” are not only reminded again, still raw to his death, but are now further pained with the senseless sad loss of their loved one. Why? How come? What if? His death is sad. His death is tragic as are the too many others who have died of addiction, alcoholism. Joke, laugh if you must, just don’t come near me. It is sad, very sad as well as the too many deaths of other addicts.
Anger resurfaces for me. Painful memories of loved ones plight and demise through addiction, with my own mental illnesses and societies both ignorant and uneducated understanding of what addiction is.
Feeling the need to repost my first post on this subject, well regarding Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Another tragedy… not just another person who overdosed. How ignorant the comments that “he deserved what he got”. The words “F OFF” come to the forefront of my mind. Just wait until YOU experience such a tragedy, and you will. You know why? It’s a frigan epidemic. Wake up people, educate yourselves and loved ones, PLEASE!
