Oh the humanity....
I'm probably as old as any of the old timers on this board and have seen more than a few friends die from overdoses through the years. The latest was this spring, my assistant, smart young guy with a beautiful girlfriend, but heroin took him one night when no one was around. Others went down when their bodies failed them, or feuds broke out or they couldn't stop their destructive behavior because they were sick. I did what I could. I do what I can. I'm one of the lucky ones who always knows when I am approaching the void and can step back and hopefully warn others. Just be a friend and give them things to think about. I won't lecture them. There are plenty of soapboxes. Plenty of finger waggers. Does anyone really think a young person is going to respond to that? Did you? I'm sorry some here feel PR is not what they signed up for but I didn't notice a brochure with cruise options when I registered. I saw a cross section of modern people coming together for a common cause.
And maybe some of the older posters don't get the ironic nuance the youngsters have cultivated. Us old timers are all about sincerity but times have changes and modes of communications are not what they once were. Preaching and railing might not really be helping. Some of what I'm hearing condemned I took for light-hearted jesting and flat out tongue-in-cheek jesting.
Finally, and this is something I'm feeling stronger and stronger about, I think the mods and the admins have come up with a pretty viable model for a pharmacy review forum that operates as a big tent. Yet some members seem to thing they know better, or, worse, yearn for the good old days...way back in May...or want only bedridden chronic pain sufferers on here.
The more I read here the more I see people looking out for each other. Why? Because the mods have set up a system that encourages us project our personalities into this forum and that is what makes us care about each other instead of ending up with a bunch of ORDER-SHIPPED-RECIEVED call outs.
Anyway, I'mma gonna shutup.
What do you think about the changes in the last two month?
