All due respect to the learned coroner, but you don't die at 32 years old of "natural causes" - it is unnatural to just drop dead at 32. Not uncommon, but unnatural.

 

I'm assuming the "natural causes" thingy means that she wasn't murdered, didnt commit suicide or didnt have an accident.

A "natural cause" can include things like diabetes, cancer, or other diseases. It's a definition that contrasts unnatural causes such as homicide, drug overdose, car accidents, and other things that kill otherwise healthy people.

 

And of course, ideally no one should die at 32 of any cause. RIP.

Umm. In defense of the coroner, he didn't actually say that.

 

The headline said: "Brittany Murphy dead - LA County Coroner says death was 'natural'"

 

What he actually said (as quoted by the same article) was:

"We will be conducting an autopsy either tomorrow or Tuesday...The final results will be pending the toxicology...The cause of death at this time appears to be natural. We do understand that she had a bit of a medical history and we're looking into all aspects of that. There are some other issues...which I can't get into at this time."

 

Which isn't the same thing at all.

You can also have a heart attack cause by the cardiac complications of Graves disease. When I saw how thin she was I thought maybe that was it. I've got Graves myself. No fun but very treatable. Get your doctor to do a thyoid test as part of a physical. It is estimated that there are a few million undiagnosed cases out there. Everytime I hear of someone with no history of heart trouble dying of a sudden attack I think of how lucky I am. Get it checked.

Oh god she's another Heath Ledger and Michael Jackson. Why on earth does one person need so many (legal) pills? Insanity. And prescriptions were in the 1. husband's 2. mom's and 3. alias names.

Mental health is not a highly publicized thing in our society. We do not openly talk about depression and other mental health issues. As a result, it is assumed people are OK especially those who seem to "have everything".

 

Those around Murphy, Ledger, Jackson and others with issues know there is a problem. Unfortunately, without the right knowledge and treatment, it is hard to save folks from destroying themselves.

 

Mental health is becoming a topic of discussion as the economy fluctuates and people lose homes and jobs. I just hope that she is free in death of whatever troubled her in life. :cool:

I would hope that we all understand that any causal statements made on the day of a death is preliminary, barring something obvious.

 

Or did anyone really believe that Tigers wife was using that golf club to help him free himself from the car wreck? I told my wife as soon as the news reader said that, that she was chasing him with the club, not helping him.

Everyone has problems. Lot of us have problems that reach the level of inner demons we fight with chronic persistence - sometimes we seem to be winning, often we seem not to be.

 

Money seldom assuages those kinds of demons for long. An old Chinese proverb goes something like, "The only thing worse than not getting everything you always wanted...is getting it" or something like that. Money just makes unhealthy ways of feeding those demons more accessible.

 

I very much hate to see lives destroyed by those kinds of things, and am greatly hopeful for second chances for anyone. Unfortunately, there are some endings where there are no second chances.

The big difference... you or I try stupid crap, our friends tell us "No way, that is stupid! Forget it you moron!"

 

But when you are rich, you hire people to get what you want for you, no filter, no questions asked.

 

Imagine if you said to one of your friends, "Yeah, I hired this doctor to come and live with me, he's gonna help me to sleep better...."... you'd get smacked upside the head with a full beer can. Then they'd buy a case and come over and watch the game with you until you passed out. So much not being able to sleep.

Insanity is exactly what it is. IMO. Just thank God that you don't understand why someone would need so many pills. Cuz, if you did, you'd probably have a problem.....

 

This happens all the time. Too bad only celebrities get the publicity. I remember reading somewhere that if drug and alcohol addiction were listed as the true cause of death on death certificates, that they would be the number one killer in the US.

I wish I could figure out how to guarantee that "the authorities" don't rifle through my stuff and that I'm not dissected, analyzed, and cataloged by the state on the way out. I take great comfort in the fact that few folks will notice and fewer will give a crap.
