To add your comment, just read down to the bottom of a single day's post, then click on "No Comments" or (# number of) comments. I'll check daily to see if there are comments (usually more often) and then publish them to the blog. Sorry, I can't post comments if you are "anonymous" but there's an easy solution. Just sign up for a blog, then you'll have a recognized name (of your choice) and can make comments and join the fun! (It is free after all, and maybe you've been just waiting to be a blogger!)

A family disease

Remembering one who fell victim to an addiction a year ago.  My nephew, Zachery Miller.

May his family know peace.


No one's son wants to grow up to be addicted.  Treatment programs work as hard as those with this disease do, and yet it often takes more than families or medical professionals have, and the disease takes young lives.

That's why I stopped working in addiction treatment.  It was too sad.  Too many young lives lost.

In the early 1970s I worked with an addiction treatment program for heroin addicts. It was totally depressing and seemingly useless. Very depressing.
