My girl friend at work just called me and I knew something was up before I even answered the phone because she NEVER calls. Only texts me. I expected her to tell me her bf broke up with her or that she was p g and terrified but instead I answer the phone to a hysterical girl that just found out her bf overdosed on drugs the night before. I feel so bad for her. She knew he was smoking weed but not into hardcore stuff. He's the first person she's loved that's ever died. She is devastated. She says she doesn't even want to come to work anymore because he worked with us. I just can't believe he did that. I can't believe something so tragic happened to her and just yesterday she was so happy and smiles everywhere. I feel so terribly bad for her. :-( I have never had this type or thing happen to me. I have had people die but not overdose from a drug problem. Have you lost anybody to a drug problem? How did you deal with it? What advice can I tell her that will help her, besides obviously counseling.
If it was you who lost someone, how did you help to handle the loss?
My friend also told me that on Fb now his ex gf is messaging her saying that they were closer then ever and she can't believe he's gone and all this stuff that indicates they were probably closer to more then just friends. I told my gf that it doesn't matter because she was happy with him and he is gone now. I really want to get a hold of his ex and tell her to knock it off and leave it be because he is gone and they are hurting enough without cutting the wound deeper.
