thats really sad. and it could happen to any one of us. whats scary is i'm sure its the same mix of meds he had taken many times before.
anyway, thanks for sharing.
I do remember him. How very tragic! I am so sorry for your loss to all who knew him.
RIP.....thanks for sharing, there are several of us who need this dose of reality.
I am so sorry to hear this. I think we all some how feel invincible and we are not I am saying a prayer to his whole family
I am so very sorry about the loss of another member, JosephTyler. My thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones, both here and his friends and family.
I think I needed to read this today. I tried to put my loved ones in the position of his girlfriend, finding and reading my posts but especially my journals and pm's to many of the great folks here.
I have become very close with a handful of people here and we have literally poured our hearts out to each other. I cannot fathom my family reading some of these messages to know where I was, where I have been and where I am now. I've written some dark stuff in some hidden journals that I refer to sometimes for strength and it pains me to know my family would see these if I didn't wake up.
I will stay clean today and fight for another tomorrow. Thanks for the heart-wrencher. As painful as it is for you, know that some good has come of it.
Thank you guys - all of you - for all your kindness.
I truly hope that many read this and understand that there is such a small thin line between sobriety, relapse and untimely death. XOXOX
Its so sad. I am so sorry. The legacy of JosephTyler is not one of having a dog in the fight, it's one of having fight in the dog. He went down fighting. He was full of fight. God bless his dear soul and his dear girlfriend. And bless you for sharing, RB. ~Lindsay
I am sorry to hear this RB. My thoughts are with his family. This is a reminder how bad addiction really is.
I miss you old friend. Take care of yourself ok.
RB~ This horribly sad. I can almost "see" his girl pouring over all of the posts and messages he wrote. Just heartbreaking. This could have been any one of us at one time,I'm sure. That's why I chose to get away from the pills...I knew they'd kill me;they were trying very hard...Bless us all!
You take care...love to his family~
Oh, res, i am so so sorry....such a young man and fighting like us , he is one of us !!there are not words ... sorry, dear res.
my condolences to her girlfriend, hope she will find some peace with time
and rest in peace JosephTyler !!!
I know the pain of losing those close to us all too well. Its just like it says in the big book, "it is the great obsession of every abnormal drinker that he may one day control and enjoy his drinking, many pursue this illusion through the gates of insanity and even death."
Such a painful reminder that the disease I have is fatal if not forced into remission through recovery.
This is so sad! I'm so sorry. I couldn't have read this at a better time after my relapse 2 days ago. This makes me so determined to not ever go back there to using pills. ..once again I'm so sorry for ur loss. My heart goes out to u.
I am so sorry to hear about his passing. This is the cold hard facts of this addiction. Let yourself feel the grief and sadness. I so understand what you are feeling right now as i lost a friend on here a couple months ago to his addiction also. It is gutwrenching painful and hurts right to the core. You know he wants you to continue in your recovery. I will be thinking of you during this time~~~~~sara
Thank you for sharing this with us. This just makes me more determined not to go back to my pills. I have had in the past a dear friend of mine do the same thing on Christmas day he never woke up. I pray every day for strength to get through this and hope not to relapse for I need another surgery. I am terrified of that day! That's what got me on these stupid pills in the first place by a very bad accident and all the surgeries I have had to endure through it.
May he rest in peace!
