The Beginning of a Beautiful week, ruined by a drug user.

On Sunday I was off, so I ended up hiking Bunker Hill....TWICE!! It was really just that beautiful of a day.

The Weather has continued to be great, However MY next month has been ruined by the actions of a drug user.
Those on the island know about the Break-in at the OC building last month and the idiot who did it. Well he was a fisherman who just got off a boat and was staying at the hotel when the police followed a trail of blood and leaves to his door here. They arrested him and shipped him off. HOWEVER his luggage was left behind and placed in Lost and Found as is our policy. Well he is still in Jail so his mom called and asked us to ship it to her. So as is my duty, I donned some gloves and started packing it up for shipment. As I was going through the bags I suddenly felt a stabbing pain in my finger and pulled it out, only to find a hypodermic needle still attached. I quickly ripped it out and applied pressure to cause a it too "bleed out". Dan came over and we quickly got some iodine on it and called Security. I went straight to the Clinic and got put on a really Fun Anti-Viral named Combivir with lots of great side effects like headache, constipation, excessive tiredness and INSOMNIA. Basically you feel like Crap, are really tired, yet can not fall asleep. I have to be on it for 30 days. Oh Joy! Also got a tetanus booster and a Hepatitis Booster and have the sore arm to prove it.They are tracking the guy in Jail and ordered a blood test to see if he has anything that I have to worry about. Still Will not know the results for at least a week. However, Upon going through his bags there is enough there to easily tell that the needle was used for illicit purposes and not for diabetes. (Aluminum foil that is burnt, small empty plastic envelope, black soot residue on the bottom of spoon etc)
There is the rational part of me that knows that I have a low chance of getting anything from a needle that has not been used for a few weeks, then there is the Irrational Germaphobe Part of me that thought about cutting the finger off when I saw the needle sticking out of it. That is the same part that is adding to my insomnia. In the past three days I have slept about 10 hours TOTAL.
I'm just chalking this up to another reason to hate Drugs, and drug users. They are the most selfish worthless people on the planet. All they care about is themselves and their "needs". They are masters at manipulating family and friends, putting on shows that they "care". Here is a hint from someone who has been screwed over by them in the Past and now again. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT YOU OR ANYONE ELSE. They will lie, cheat. steal and knife you in the back all to feed their addiction. They do not care WHO they hurt, and they will HURT YOU.

Anyway though, that pretty much ruined this week for me. Still it started out beautiful, and with God's Help and your Prayers I am sure all will be well.

Back to Bunker Hill Now.
As you can see the island is greening up quite nicely and the wildflowers are everywhere!



As are the Cute little ground squirrels!
The Classic Iconic Shot Of Dutch Harbor.

Captains Bay
Pyramid, Westward and the New Small Boat Harbor.
And Eagles Everywhere.

I Hope all your weeks are better than mine, or that at least you had one day as wonderful as this!

The island is looking pretty!!

You'll be in my prayers... and I know it probably won't ease your mind much I've lost track of how many times David has had to go to the ER after being stuck, cut, spit on, bled on, etc. from people he was in the process of arresting... and even with the ones who tested positive for various funk... he's never acquired any of it. I believe God looks out for people when they are trying to do the right thing! But I know it's nerve-wracking and unfair you even have to be exposed to that!

that so bites about the needle stick. especially stressful when it's from a loser drug addict. will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. hopefully, your tests will all be clean, but that doesnt help that you have to go through all this and take the antivirals. i'm so sorry. i was in dutch this time last year...loved it. the flowers are beautiful as is the scenery...thanks for the posts!!

CB OMG, HUGS. You are in my thoughts. I hope nothing else bad happens to you. That is horrific.

We just got back from Texas, and its so different from Unalaska/DH. I really need to get up there. It looks gorgeous.

Margrita said...

CB you are in my thoughts and prayers. This is just horrid I hate that you got stuck by that needle. Drug users not only hurt themselves but those around them. I hope the side effects level out soon.
The pictures are gorgeous. I like the ground squirrel one he looks perfect. Take care thoughts are with you

Prayers sent your way but I totally understand the stress. I'd be feeling the same. The photos are gorgeous.

WHY DIDN'T THE POLICE CONFISCATE THE BAGS AND SEARCH THEM?

THE POLICE APPEAR TO HAVE IGNORED THE POTENTIAL FOR THE BAGS TO CONTAIN ADDITIONAL EVIDENCE.

IN SUCH CASES, THE POLICE SHOULD HAVE RESPONSIBILITY FOR SEARCHING BAGS.

MAY BE GOOD IDEA IN FUTURE TO SEND BAGS TO FAMILY AS IS - REGARDLESS OF WHETHER A DRUG ABUSER IS INVOLVED -IN ORDER TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM ANY NUMBER OF POTENTIAL PROBLEMS.

So sorry this has happened to you...prayers are with you...

Thanks Everyone for all your kind words, thoughts and prayers!
Audreya: I have no idea how policemen do what they do without beating these idiots. They certainly have more charity than I would!
EDAAIN: The End of July and the Beginning of August are certainly some of the best weather of the entire year. Next time you come out look me up.
Seattle Heather: Thanks Sweetie! He messed with the OC so I am sure he is gonna get some good jail time!
Anonymous's (sp?): Thanks and LOL!
Kimi:Thanks!! It is beautiful up here, gotta concentrate on that!
Margrita: Thanks! You always sum things up good!
Purrduevm: Prayers are always great!
emarienan: They had no cause to suspect drug use, just a drunk. Also he did have a roomate so it could be said that the "roomate" let the needle etc. Lawyers you know. More evil than drug users!
