Hi everyone I am joining this group to put some kind of understanding in my mind about meth and the need and urge for this drug that obviously is killing so many people young and old. I do not use Meth or any illegal street drug for that matter which is why I am so naive and iggnorant to this drug and it's powerful grip on people and society in general. I work with mentally challenged individuals who have mental illnesses whether it be Shizophrenia or Bipolar etc I am fairly new to this and very septible and raw. Recently we lost a client of ours to an apparent meth induced heart attack I have been asking myself how can this happen!? These are people who are trying to turn their lives around. and Yet they put their lives in jeopardy time and time again. I guess the drug impairs you in thinking about the consequences of your actions or how it will affect others. I can not go into to many details due to confidentiality but they believe it was drug related as "they" (the police)found a pipe next to the body.. I am at a loss for words and in complete shock. Thank you for listening and sorry if I sound completely iggnorant and dumb I just can't imagine something taking so much control over you you lose sight of life and those important people around us...:( This is so very sad~CG

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
