Today my crosscountry team had its Metro crosscountry race. On the way to the meet I found out some bad news. One of our best runners (#2) had overdosed on speed and liquor earlier in the day. He is now in the hospital. Obviously he is off the team, and probably expelled from school. We probably would have qualified for state with him, but its going to be tough without him. I feel angry, sad, and frustrated by this. He is a good friend, and I didn't think he was doing any drugs. He has know put his life in danger, and less importantly, our season on the line. Has anyone else had friends with drug problems? Please, give me your experiences with friends and loved ones having drug problems.
