I arrived back home a awhile ago after being called out for a 'possible suicide attempt.' Given the state of the economy, my crew has been anticipating the likely increase in these types of calls. But this one had nothing to do with economics.
I'll never for the life of me understand what prompts anyone to try meth. It's pure (expletive) poison. The destructive capacity of methamphetamine on the human brain and body makes it incomprehensible to think anyone would ingest it on purpose. Dump alcohol and prescription drugs on top.....what a (expletive) mess.
It's a pretty sad business to spend a few hours in the middle of the night trying to provide some level of comfort to an emotionally-wrecked spouse. I'm glad I was there for this one, though; the guys don't have the experience in dealing with famlies that I do.
Just my opinion, but I don't think there is a punishment harsh enough for someone who manufactures or distributes meth or anything like it. Right now, I'd like to see them fry.
I 'unloaded' here solely to dump this garbage out of my brain and improve my chances of getting a couple hours of sleep on top of the 90 or so minutes I started with. It's working; I'm feeling extremely tired.
If anyone is unfortunate enough to have read this, my apologies. And also for my (suggested) inapproprate language. I"m cranky.
