I am truly sorry to read about this young woman's passing. PA Lady is right , this is exactly why we were so "tough" in some of our responses, because it can and does happen every day .
It's tragic that this young woman lost her life and her family will be left to grieve, and whom ever brought those pills to the party may find themselves facing charges if they can locate where they came from.
Blessings to her and her family, and to you and yours. This is one of those teaching moments , both about how it can happen to you, or someone that you know, and that grieving is normal.....

On going back pain and neuropathic pain, failed back surgery, consult for scs, decided not to do that at this point.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
