I use to really enjoy Story Corps, now it seems to mostly be social justice stories and race. These relentless stories make these issues more of a problem. I'm out.

re: fighting it every day (the opioid epidemic): It's hit the bay area so hard and I am on methadone maintenance myself. it's absolutely true that this is something that could literally happen to anyone. no one is invincible (unless, for example, you get in a horrible accident and forgo the painkillers entirely). it sneaks up on you out of nowhere. one day you have a complete hold on your meds and can hold down your job, family life is fine; some time after (in the not so distant future) you'll find your prescriptions aren't lasting as long as you need them to because you're having to take an extra pill here and there to manage the now intolerable pain that doesn't subside unless you have your meds. and when you do run out, you start feeling it in your bones, you get nauseous and sweaty and have diarrhea so bad you camp out in your bathroom. it's just the flu, you tell yourself. unbeknownst to you, you have begun to get dopesick. you start buying pills from a dealer. you drain your bank accounts, borrow from family--anything to prolong that horrible flu onset. but, it's not enough. pills are so expensive. heroin is so much cheaper, someone tells you. it's not really THAT much different, morphine is morphine, you justify to yourself. The next thing you know, you wake up one morning a full blown junkie. trust me. it can happen to anyone.
