    RIP Conrad. A friend of mine was on anti depressants in 1997. His doctor changed the meds. My friend then called me and said he had to use heroin again as he had a couple of years back. I asked him why and he said because nothing made him feel that kind of high. I said come to my place. You can have everything I own. That was not enough. – The meds worked, but when they started to wear off, he felt himself sink back into unceasing depression again. He said could not get reality to line up with what the ideal in his mind was. We took hikes. We talked about life. I helped him off heroin once. – Those of us who are happy, would never have even thought about what Conrad did nor followed through with it. We would go fishing or get a pizza with friends or watch a favorite TV show. Some want to judge his girlfriend, who was depressed and on meds as well. But Conrad was depressed. We’ve all been sad. We’ve had a depressed friend or two. It can be all day, every day. – To Conrad: I understand, Conrad. If you were happy, you would have been somewhere else. You would not have even spent any time with Michelle in any way. I tried helping my friend in 1997, but I could not MAKE him happy, the way HE wanted to be. Rest in Peace, man.
