Unhappy Prince?!

We've had a lot of celebrity deaths this year, it seems there's one every day in the UK, but for goodness sake - now we've lost Prince?!

What is happening in 2016?

Yes I saw that Chyna case too - she was known for quite a lot of drugs but still...way too young to die.

Same for Prince....what an icon but 57 years old?!?

There is an article on the BBC website about this right now. Its explanation about the increasing number of celebrity deaths is a combination of population and media. The baby boomer generation is getting to the age where more of them are dying, and there are simply more celebrities than there were. The previous generation of celebrities were primarily from movies only. The baby boomer generation of celebrities is much larger because of the dissemination of media through movies, tv, radio, music, etc. There are going to be more celebrity deaths when there are more celebrities.

Why so many celebrities have died in 2016 - BBC News

Well, we know that Prince MAY have been addicted to opiates, as he suffered a recent overdose. It is also quite possible that he was just trying to get pain relief. I'm sure we will find out more about it since there is a lot of interest in his death.

I know something about opiates as I have to take them every day. And that scares me. But no matter how bad my condition gets, I have NEVER taken more than prescribed. And I never take them when I am not in pain. I try to use them as sparingly as possible.

PLEASE, if you need these drugs, use the minimum possible dosage for pain relief. While it IS true that these drugs can make you feel good, that lasts only a very short time and each time it is shorter and shorter. It is NOT worth your life! There is no such thing as "oh, I just took a couple of extras" with these pills.

And I am not saying this only because I care about others, although I certainly DO care. But I also have a selfish reason for saying this. Every time someone else dies of an opiate overdose, it makes it that much harder for people who actually NEED these drugs to get them. Not a day goes by when some new piece of legislation restricting these drugs is not being proposed somewhere in the US. And the fact is, they have NOTHING that can take their place for many people. For whatever reason, whenever they try to take the "addictive" parts of these drugs out, they end up removing the pain relieving part of it as well. I know the drug manufacturers are working on this, but nothing they have so far has been successful.

If you get a tooth pulled, or sprain your ankle, think twice before taking them. If you NEED IT, by all means, take it. But if you don't, then leave these drugs alone. You will be doing yourself a big favor. Because for most people, they WILL need them at some point. And if you have built up a resistance to these drugs, then you won't get the pain relief you are seeking when you need them.

I've heard so many Prince songs on the radio these past few days but no-one seems game enough to play Batdance. What's wrong with that song? His best work!
