I've only posted here a few times, after my bf was diagnosed with HE. I'm sorry to have to say that he passed away this last weekend. His mother had died just three weeks ago, and with Sunday being Mother's Day, he was so distraught that he drank himself to death. The police found him in his apt. Sunday afternoon. He had laid down to take a nap Saturday afternoon, and just never woke up. I just learned that May 11th was the anniversary of his father's death also, so just another whammy to his psyche.
I knew that he was terminal with his cirrhosis diagnosis, but had he chosen to take care of himself and quit drinking, he might have had a lot more time left. As it is, he has left a heartbroken family.
Thank you for all the support and information you provided while I was learning about HE. Now I have to put my life together in a new fashion...
