Unemployed Recovering Junkbox “Writer” Allegedly Saved A Junkie From Dying In A Holyoke Dunkin Donut’s Bathroom, But Probably Just So She Could Tell You All About It, Over And Over Again

So a while back, Western Mass Turtlegirl wrote this blog about an aspiring author and former junkie who was cranking out back-to-back GoFundMe campaigns so she could support herself without actually having to get a job, and write a book that will never be published anyway.

Well, she’s not giving up on her dream of constant online attention and work-free income so easily, and has moved on to saving half-dead junkies locked in Dunkin Donuts bathrooms….but not without writing herself a long winded congratulatory post and redundantly posting it everywhere….because why do anything for another human being if no one is around to pat you on the back for it afterwards?


“We were both passionate about not letting this man die”. What. The. Fuck. If your first instinct when seeing anyone, anywhere, in medical distress for any reason is to yell at them and punch them instead of calling 911, you don’t deserve a medal of honor – you deserve to be punched yourself. I don’t know where this bitch gets off thinking that the lifetime of shooting bags of dope behind dumpsters is an adequate substitute for actual medical training, but it’s not. It’s actually the polar opposite, and stupid thinking like that isn’t heroism, it’s reckless narcissism. She clearly had a cell phone – because she chose to take pictures of the whole ordeal like a totally sane, rational person would.

Totally appropriate, Julie. Not weird or attention starved at all.

It’s all about meeeeee!


Poor decision making and crisis response aside, this is a pretty mundane story that deserves no overblown praise. There are idiots overdosing all over the country, around the clock, every day.  If you’re willing to help out a fellow human being in distress, congratulations – you are NOT Ted Bundy. My compliments on your base level of human empathy.  But it doesn’t make you Mother Teresa, either, get real. I’m not personally one of those “let them die” sort of people – I think if we can save lives, we should, regardless of how seemingly worthless that life may seem at the time. I know it’s not up to me to quantify the value of another human life, and I don’t think it’s up to anyone else, either. That being said, though, if you do happen to stumble on a half dead dope fiend face down on the porcelain throne of your local coffee spot and decide not to just shove him over and take a leak – good for you. But you don’t deserve a medal.

And the chick who showed up with the Narcan Emily Thickinson forgot at home that day?

Not shocked that she had it. If Narcan had a face, it would look a lot like that. She didn’t shy away from the post-near death experience selfies, either.

So that’s cool. They seem like a good match. There’s a small subset of the world who takes smiling parking lot selfies after screaming in the face of a half naked man dying in a Dunkin Donut’s toilet, and it’s always so magically when they find each other and connect. Soul sisters!

Naturally, though, logic and basic human decency haven’t stopped the Gold Stars and “Way-to-Go!” from flooding in:


Or the media from buying in to this line of self-stroking bullshit and doing their part to feed this hag’s sickness:

Oh yeah….the praise is almost as good as a shot of dope!


Because this is what we do now, right? This 40 something year old lady with no job, no life skills, whose only major life accomplishment as she counts it is NOT replacing all the blood in her body with poison anymore (by her own admission)


Is now making herself into some sort of heroic “recovery” icon, and everyone around her is just like, “Yup. Ok. Let me stroke that ego a little harder for you – your arms look tired.”

Give me a fucking break. For someone who claims to have fought back against her heroin addiction – and won – she sure can’t shut the fuck up about it.


If your idea of “recovery” is just keeping the shitty personality defects – narcissism, attention-seeking, selfishness and ego – and throwing out the drugs, just go back to doing drugs, really. At least then you have an excuse for being an ass-clown. I’m all for people getting sober and getting their lives back – but the two are not synonymous. We need to stop perpetuating the lie that getting off the junk is the biggest accomplishment of a lifetime – that’s setting the bar tragically low. It’s not, and it’s insulting to those who kept their heads down, eyes and ears open, and mouths closed and just did the work. The real reward is a life worth living, not the applause of a bunch of half-wits on the internet who have been pre-programmed to gush about how “brave” you are. Fuck out of here with that nonsense. There are bigger things to aspire to out there, you’re cheating yourself if you can’t acknowledge that.

I couldn’t help but notice Julie has only been clean for about a year at that – congratulations, you’re an expert at exactly nothing. Shut the fuck up and maybe start talking again when you’ve learned how to take care of yourself, until then you literally have nothing useful to share with anyone else. Humility is the antidote to this – and she clearly has none. Take the cotton out of your ears, and please place it right in your mouth. Step away from the keyboard. Julie clearly skipped from the first right to the 12th step – her life is unmanageable, and she wants to share it with you.

Can you imagine what that guy in the bathroom must’ve encountered when he came to? Two crazy eyed broads screaming and crying and spitting while slapping him around, yelling “DON’T YOU GIVE UP ON US NOW!” like dialogue in some sort of terrible James Cameron film. Holy fuck. And this slag gets a TV interview out of it – just like she wanted, I’m sure. Well congratulations, random junkie who almost died face down in the shitter – Captain Karma saved you. And if you just stay off the junk for a whole 12 months like she has, you too could be an unemployed, barely functional ego monster with a crippling social media addiction and sporadic donation income. Oh, the things to look forward to!

    She does seem to be dining out a little bit on the story. If you had a hand in saving the guy I think that’s great but lay off all the patting yourself on the back crap

  • Here’s your cookie hero
    March 22, 2019 at 7:18 am

    Wow!! nothing like needing that pat on the back over and over. Anyone over the age of 18 can go to any pharmacy without a script and get two containers of narcan for free. You tell the pharmacist your name and age and they hand it right over, no questions asked. That’s how bad the epidemic has become. She saved a life. Good Job. Imagine if EMTS, Police or any other person who works in the type of field that saves lives posted every time they brought a addict back from death. My god that’s all you would read. And what’s sad is that most of them go right back out and get more drugs because the narcan cleans out all the dope from their body and puts them into instant withdrawal. It’s getting so sickening, these people who are falling out in the Dunkin’ Donuts bathroom or any other public piss filled bathroom are choosing to live like this. They could go in to treatment. But they would rather not and that is the real truth. Oh by the way I’ve given Narcan to at least 15 people this year alone, meaning since January. I am a RN at Saint Anne’s Hospital. So it’s something we do daily

    “she sure can’t shut the fuck up about it.”
    That is the definition of an NA meeting, except that the topic might be about ‘going shopping with your mother,’ or some other crap spewed from the same person who spewed crap at the previous meeting, and meetings before that. Drug free, their ego is loosed upon those seated on an abysmal edge.

    P.S. she has a SJW face, as well.

    I’m so fucking sick of society catering to these junkies. I can’t even go in a public restroom anymore without seeing needle receptacles in every stall and no doubt narcan dispensers will be next. Add to that now we have to fund safe houses that are open 24/7 for them to run to when they stumble onto a bad batch. The amount of money and resources we are wasting on this bs would be better spent on more prison cells.

    • Gross
      March 22, 2019 at 9:00 am

      It enables the addict to continue to use. I work in the emergency room and we have people arrive by ambulance and are told that the patient had narcan either next to them or even in their hands. When those ones come in, they are usually accompanied by someone one else like a BF/GF and they will tell us that they will use, and have the narcan right there next to them, so if one of them over doses they have it. So what happens next is, they shoot up and OD and then use the narcan to come out of the over dose. Get checked at the ER, get released and go back to CVS get more free narcan and do the exact same thing the next day, if not a few hours later ..smh! This is why nothing changes

      narcan posession should be illegal if you’re not police or EMS personel.

      March 24, 2019 at 10:45 am

      We have revived the same addicts twice in a weekend, this is becoming the norm! You enablers and sympathizers should realize we’re usually rolling 2 fire kits, a police cruiser and an ambulance. Once revived the addict goes in search of more funds/goods to score more smack, repeat, repeat and repeat Selfish goddamned addicts and their brain dead enablers. 10 upvotes to the OP, I assume the thumbs down crew vote for liberals

        March 24, 2019 at 6:33 pm

        Maybe they will build up a tolerance and the narcan won’t work any longer and they will just overdose and be done. How many times do you have to be brought back from the edge of death only to keep repeating the process. Everyone has their own thoughts on about whether it’s a choice or a disease. Well When you overdose twice a month, I call that a choice. As a ER Nurse we offer help to every addict, 90% check out as soon as they can AMA. They don’t want to change or get better. And they continue their life and we have to continue making sure they don’t die. Even though it seems like that is their goal. Addicts should have DNR order placed on them if they are frequent flyers. I’m sorry if nothing changes, that’s just it. Nothing changes.

    That pink shade from cheek, across nose and lips, to cheek, probably indicated that she’s replaced one illicit intoxicant with another, legal, one. Bottoms up!

    BTW, Narcan does do a great job. But it slams the recipient so hard back to reality, that many of them immediately seek out their next quick fix, thus continuing the cycle.

    What an attention whore is Ms. Rocky Jewels (maybe her BF can take her name).

    When she watched a movie with her daughter, age 12, she had flashbacks to her own mom, who died of an OD when she (the writer) was 12. Thank you, universe, for giving me a decent mom – the minimal foundation that we take for granted. Wish there had been one for you when you were 12. Sigh…

    Sadly, this is a byproduct of social media. Those who have a need for constant attention are enabled through social media and it truly brought out the worst in these attention-whores. She is just one example of it. Social media provides a platform for these needy people and man, did they jump on that fucking train. “Look at me!” “I’m so cool, give me Likes!” It is sad actually. I had to “unfollow” a shitload of “friends” on my FB machine as their constant fucking pandering for attention was nauseating. Made me evaluate who the fuck I call friends as I typically do not want anything to do with attention-whores. Well, at the end of the day, I now have a FB feed that is more entertaining for me without the fucking incessant bullshit from the tools who need to have themselves validated through fucking “Likes”.
    End of rant!

    A bible lesson from St. Matthew (6):

    1“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

    2 “So when you give to the needy, do not announce it with trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets, to be honored by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. 3 But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4 so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
