    committed suicide last night. She took an overdose of Elavil. She was 33 years old.

    This woman was absolutely gorgeous, but since becoming a nurse about 12 years ago, she became addicted to pain pills. Her looks gave her opportunity again and again after getting caught on the job, stealing pain meds.

    She fell or was slung out of a moving truck when she was a toddler. She received a head injury. By age 11 or 12 she was having seizures. I remember seeing some phenobarbital with her name on the prescription, when she was about 14.

    What in the heck was she doing taking this medicine? She turned into a problem teen really fast. She got married after HS and had two children. One was a girl and if I can, I will post a picture of this 13 year old girl. She looks better than her Mother.

    Anyway, April lost both of her children. Their father got custody after a divorce.

    I believe April's destiny was sealed after she received the head injury. Her parent's never dealt with her right afterwards.

    After she had screwed up so many times, while her parents were raising both of her children, her parents totally gave up on her. No matter what they heard about their daughter, it did not bother them.

    April's Mother called me Wednesday to tell me that my wifes first cousin had died from MS. She was 5' 7" and weighed 65 pounds.

    I asked how April was doing. She said April had called her on called Mother's day. She said the first 30 minutes of the conversation was good, but the last 15 minutes she just listened to April kind of rave on.

    I really loved the little girl that she will always be to me. I remember when she was born.

    I have two funerals to attend this weekend. I don't know if I can make it to them.

    Sorry for the sadness,

    It's so sad to hear what all you and your wife have to face this weekend. Try to take care of yourself so you don't spend a week in bed recovering.

    a trajic, sad story. To give up on your child, what a terrible thing and for it to end like this.

    Dont feel bad if you cant make the funerals, I've missed a few in my family because of this illness. You can be supportive by phoning, by being there for the families.

    I'm so sorry.
