I was "seeing" (we were just friends, truthfully) one of my best friend's cousins on and off over the past few months, but I really distanced myself over the past month because he was a heroin/ecstasy addict and I didn't want to be involved with that. I also wasn't happy with how careless he was with his programs and rehabilitation. It pissed him off a lot. My friend just IMed me and told me he drowned today. I'm just in shock. I'm not even sure what to think. I almost feel like I could have done something.
What goes through your mind when someone you know dies?
