DMX Remains in Critical Condition


On Friday rapper DMX was rushed to the hospital in White Plains, NY after suffering an apparent drug overdose [click here if you missed that].

He remains in critical condition...

From BuzzFeed
Rapper DMX was taken to a hospital Friday and remained unresponsive as of Sunday.
Nakia Walker, his former manager, told BuzzFeed News on Sunday that the rapper, born Earl Simmons, is in a "vegetative state" with "lung and brain failure." She said she had just spoken with his family.
When reached by phone Sunday, Walker told BuzzFeed News the rapper has been "in the same condition" all weekend and that she and his family are "just praying and waiting" for his recovery.
"He’s still in the same condition — in a vegetative state, [with] lung and brain failure and no brain activity," she said. "We’re just praying and waiting. Praying and waiting.”

Not being insensitive or wishing DMX any bad luck, but maybe the Universe, the Heavens, or God, have decided that he's suffered enough and it's time to bring him home. All of us, including the addict, deserve peace in our lives and it's obvious that if he never found his way to freedom and is still using at 50, he's in extreme emotional pain. Some addictions you can't cure unless and until you cure the pain behind them and he may have never received, or didn't want, the help he needed. It may be time for him to lay his burden down and go in to the arms of the One to Whom there is no judgment, pain or suffering. I wish him well no matter which way he goes. No judgment, just hope that he finds the peace he so desperately needs.

Some addictions you can't cure unless and until you cure the pain behind them. FACTS!

@ 9:16 so true. Dmx has been self-medicating for years. Unfortunately with bipolar disorder a lot of people who suffer from it stop taking the meds when they start to feel better. A lot of those antidepressants and anti psychotic meds have undesirable side affects such as feeling like an emotional zombie and no sex drive.
Dmx never healed from his tumultuous childhood. I hope he finds peace no matter the outcome.

I am a nurse and had to pull plug on my mom last labor day at 55. Literally talking to her facetime and she had a heart attack before my usual stop over before my shift. No brain activity etc etc, she's gone home. I go off facts not parables, machines and books can't compete with God. Hope they are strong enough for closure and maintain his legacy positively.

I had a homie who'd been using for 30 years, on and off. He died after a heart attack after he'd been sober for a year. Drugs don't always kill you directly. Sometimes, so much damage is done to your body, your organs are deteriorated, even after you get clean. I just hope that if he's time for him to go, the family doesn't attempt to keep him hooked up to machines for years on end. I wouldn't want to have to make that tough decision though. My prayers to them all.

This the most weight I ever seen DMX have on him. Addicts usually gain weight when getting clean. Maybe he relapsed. Anyhow, my prayers are with you my brother. May Gods will be done.

Damn Earl, sending some Oshun healing and blessings your way. May Ogun strengthen your heart chakra.

My Prayers to DMX and to his family. May he be at peace. Because the last couple of years he was not happy with either his lifestyle or Enviornment. Something was going on. Somethings going on with Kanye also. Hopefully they both find peace...*
