‘Friends’ actor, Matthew Perry Found Lifeless.

Sadly, we learn this morning that ‘Friends’ actor, Mr Matthew Perry, who found fame playing the character Chandler Bing, has died in a suspected accidental drowning in a jacuzzi at his home. Mr Bing was aged just 54 years old.

His death comes after he recently published his memoir, informing his fans of how he had overcome drink and drug addictions, which had almost brought about his death.

Mr Perry was discovered dead at his mansion on Saturday morning last, October 28th; his body discovered by his assistant. It is understood that no foul play was involved.

In all Mr Perry spent 10 seasons playing ‘Chandler’ on ‘Friends’, while struggling with a string of addictions. His memoir ‘Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing: A Candid, Darkly Funny Book’ exposed his struggles with addictions that became so severe that 5 years ago, at the age of 49 years, he suffered a gastrointestinal perforation, as a result of his extreme opiate usage. Same issue gave him then just a 2% chance of living after being placed in a coma for some weeks, following which he had to use a colostomy bag, while his colon healed.

At the peak of his addictions he was consuming about 55 Vicodin (Trade Name) tablets a day and weighed just 128 pounds. This combination medication is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. It contains an opioid pain reliever hydrocodone and a non-opioid pain reliever acetaminophen. Same is an antitussive (cough suppressant) and narcotic analgesic agent for the treatment of moderate to moderately severe pain. Hydrocodone works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain and since 2009, has been the second most frequently encountered opioid.

Mr Perry had stated “When I’m carrying weight, it’s alcohol; when I’m skinny, it’s pills; when I have a goatee, it’s a lot of pills.”

“Thank you for the years of laughter. In ár gcroíthe go deo”.
