More on Glenn Frey's death

The rather sensational coverage of singer/songwriter Glenn Frey's death continues, with my being interviewed for yet another website, The Wrap.  I think it is important to realize that all of these interviews, as with previous celebrity tragedies, are being looked at in general terms from a distance.  The words used may sound sensational and specific, but, in the case of famous people, are often used with journalistic liberty.  Each of the people involved have had their own unique set of circumstances, the details of which are known only to their physicians and family, and which clearly influence the decisions made and outcomes obtained.  If you have any of the conditions discussed, please do not assume anything or act on any situation without having a full and frank discussion with your own physician.  While we look to celebrities for many things, health care advice should likely not be one of them, especially when drawn from partial information and unknown consequences.
