R is still alive. he had a bad few hours last night, really bad. they were giving him more morphine like every half hour. now he's mostly non-responsive, he does squeeze a hand once in a while. i believe he might be able to hear us but can't respond.

the nurse today told me he thinks he'll die today. his breathing is very shallow. this morning is oxygen saturation was 70 and his bp was 65/33. but he's peaceful now, no pain today that we could tell. his body is completely limp except for some random jerks and hand squeezing.

a rabbi came in today to talk to us. R is a lutheran so i'm not sure why they sent a rabbi but none of us is religious anyway. he was nice, said some prayer over him, listened to the whole story of what happened to R. so basically he got his last rights by a rabbi. which is sort of hilarious. that's boca raton for you.

If you're drinking just to get drunk, then doing it alone is just sad. And dangerous.

However, there is nothing wrong with having a few drinks alone after a long day at work. Or at least that's what I tell myself.

I know someone who carved a pumpkin into a jack-o-lantern and named it Jim so he specifically would have a drinking buddy.

Making "rules" for yourself and then breaking them and making new rules is a sign of addiction. Not judging you dude, but just be careful.

How about just treat yourself to 1 or 2 beverages and leave it at that?

So, R died today. It was getting to be a marathon and I was going stir crazy, so I left to take a nap and go to therapy. Thought it likely he would pass during this time, and he did. My mom was there and holding his hand when he stopped breathing.

No one should have to die like he died. I've never seen anyone in such pain. They knocked his ass out with 8mg of ativan and 30mg morphine subcutaneous every 4 hours, plus 10mg morphine PRN. they were doing 6mg/15mg plus a 25mcg fentanyl patch and we were getting the nurse every hour for that PRN dose, he was still in so much pain. the last day he didn't need any PRN - he was in a coma, i believe, for the last about 18 hours of his life. in the end he also didn't have the death rattle very much. he seemed peaceful.

RIP dude

Well, if you're alone and the only way to can get your rocks off is to get completely plastered, then it indicates a sense of desperation to me. And again, it's kind of dangerous to be drinking in excess without anyone to help you should hurt yourself, choke on your own vomit, set your home on fire, etc.

Didn't intend for my post to come across as judgey.

Drinking alone can be fun and harmless despite the social connotation that it means there is something wrong with you. Doing drugs in solitude is different than with people IMO and alcohol is no different. When I am alone, I feel more fucked up from less (be it weed or beer or whatever). I can drink just one of two beers or a cocktail, smoke a bowl, and feel good for hours.

However I would probably not recommend drinking alone to anyone who specifically has a drinking problem
