    meds made it easier to do what he did.  but that feeling or emotion that made him do what he did was always there...

    at least that is what i believe.
    Well I think it's probably quite difficult to untangle the relationship between addiction and the depression, or emotions that it brings.  I absolutely agree that recovering addicts will always carry the baggage that drives their addiction, but I don't necessarily think that someone like Chris was a ticking time bomb waiting to go off.  Respectfully, I think that it's important to make the distinction here, not all depressed people will do what he did.  I think it was more of a 'perfect storm' of factors that coalesced in that moment - depression, medication, being alone, guilt from relapsing, shame etc.  The point, I believe his wife is getting at, is that doctors prescribing these addictive medications, must bear some responsibility when their patients' addiction is inadvertently reactivated, they really should know better.

    **Mods - I understand this is a really sensitive subject, and if you would rather keep personal opinions off here, I more than understand.  I guess from my point of view, it helps to discuss it, and I don't think there are any people in my life who care more about Chris' passing than the people here, hence my engagement in this particular conversation.  That said, I really wouldn't want to upset anyone, so will understand if you believe my comments are not in keeping with the mood of the thread.**

    Yep I agree. I have the same feeling and meds will make you care less and proceed with your plan with less thought.

    I've been listening to that song a lot this last week. It's a musical masterpiece.

    She lived like a martyr how she'd fly so sweetly. 

    There hasn't been a day in the last year that I haven't listened to his voice in some capacity. Whether it be SG, TOTD, AS, or solo. I can't believe we're coming up to a year.

    It's fucking unbelievable how fast a year flies by as we get older.
    And so you see, I have come to doubt
    All that I once held as true
    I stand alone without beliefs
    The only truth I know is you.

    Seems like yesterday I woke up to the news. 

    We're all growing old together, that's a little consolation.

    Playing Seasons now, the song I've avoided the most, that opening chord just sent a shiver down my spine, "lost behind the words I'll never find" - pretty much sums up how I'm feeling right now.

    Doing the same. It’s just too sad knowing he’s no longer with us.

    He is with us with his music though, so let’s turn it up and let the world hear him!

    Sad day but making the best of it. Music has always worked that way for me/us I’m sure 

    Like Ed said once before they went into light years. “I wanna tell you a story.....ehh never mind just Life is precious “. Something to that effect.  I think that’s something we can take forward. Definetly not forgetting the past.
