OMG, she was so pretty and had one of the best singing voices of all times!!
Is the photo shown a cover jacket on a CD?
"WHEN ALL MY HOPE IS GONE ". . .
" I LOOK TO YOU".
I heard someone said that she was drinking champagne I believe the Thursday before the Grammy's at a LA club. When someone as famous & rich as Whitney Houston has a drug & alcohol problem, are they ever counseled to hire a sobriety coach to help them stay away from the drugs?
Unfortuanely von......that is not true. Blood or urine tests are not required dependent on the doctor and more times than not, they just go by what you say. Someone watching a commercial may recognize some of the symptoms and seek help, especially for bipolar,ADHD or depression......at least it may provoke them to go and find out.
Some meds, yes.....for example it is a fact that at any given time that 50% of men are impotent (in the states) and I find it ironic that TGC has so many Cialis or Viagra commercials, prance their high heeled ladies as a side kick and yet slam a Champion for something they are complicit in promoting.
Other commercialized meds may help someone to take that first step......ADHD, ADD and Clinical depression are hard to recognize by an individual by themselves. JMHO!
With the celebrities......it's all private, all they need is a Doctor willing no matter what the history of the patient because of the $$$$$$$.
Club Tiger at least we are having a good discussion here about legal and illegal drug use in America. When was the last time it happened. Everytime a famous person dies the issue is missed and the person's talent and life style becomes the focus.
Some of my fellow TTF's have made points I have forgotten like here when it was said ".... meds may help someone to take that first step...."
Nevertheless, a medical doctor has the obligation & right to tell a patient that to receive treatment from them, blood & hair tests are required. Refusal would mean the famous and average person would be denied their services. Hopefully, most medical doctors sees themselves as a permanent fixture in a patient's life and not someone for a quick & easy passage way to a prescription.
Dear Eye: I just read this on the internet and thought it was so weird I had to share it with you:
Judy Garland died at the age of 47
Elvis Presley died at the age of 42
Whitney Houston died at the age of 48
thanks for posting this info. this in just incredibly sad. something needs to be done.
we need help in this country. all were said to have used drugs. and i agree with
Eye, that they all accomplished so much in such a short period of time; but i think of
how much more they could have inspired, had they lived longer.
just so very sad. i wish i knew what to do about it, but i just don't. but it breaks
