It would make things so much easier.
God this get's tiring after a while. It hurts to see people doing dumb things over and over and over and over. We try as hard as we can to provide good information and do people listen? Here, a lot of them do, but still, there's so many that don't and that starts to weigh you down. Try as we might we just can't save everyone from themselves and that fucking sucks.
Today, I spent a lot of my time reporting self incrimination, horribly dangerous advice, general rule breaking, and I kept coming across people who've been here for years that don't seem like they've learned a thing. It's even worse elsewhere. I keep tabs on a community on LiveJournal and I know half the members are kids and it shows. Every day the same BS posts, "Can I get high off of my prozac?" "I took to vicoden am I going to die?" "I heard OJ makes acid even stronger?" "I've run out of veins can I shoot up in an artery?" "What was in this pill I took?" "I got all messed up on mushrooms should I do LSD?" "Driving on drugs is KOOL!"
Found a horribly depressing post today on what to do when you come home and there's someone dead of a smack OD. I can't help but wonder if the person wrote that as their friend was lying there dead. I think that's even worse then the ones where people are clearly having medical emergencies and their first reaction it to go online and sit around and wait and see what random strangers tell them to do.
-sigh- I'm tired, I think I should take a few days off.
