A day before we all learned of Heath Ledger´s sudden and shocking death, I was flipping through the tele looking for something to watch. And although I happened across one of the movies Heath Ledger had worked on: Ten Things I Hate About You, I moved on thinking little of the matter.
How it all came back to me the second I heard of his passing a mere twenty four hours later. I, like many of his fans, well wishers, friends and family were stunned. I kept on looking at the news that day to see if there had been some mistake or misinformation.
But no, Heath Ledger, at the tender age of twenty eight was no longer among us. Then a few days ago it was learned that he had at least six prescription drugs in his system at the time of his passing. Something that made me wonder maybe Heath Ledger had faith in the legal drugs he was taking.
Granted, too much of any substance that is supposed to be administered in small doses can do much harm. And Heath Ledger must have believed in the prescription drugs he took.
If he was trying to overcome insomnia/sleep deprivation or physical pain by using these legal drugs, then he must have felt certain something would have worked.
And given that Heath Ledger had a young daughter and many more years of work to do in the movie industry, it is not believed that he deliberately set out to commit suicide.
But, maybe, just maybe, he, Heath Ledger sought relief in the legal drugs he believed in, overdose or not.
