My son died of a drug overdose.

I had no idea he used. He was 28 and had just gotten his PhD. It took 5 months to get the toxicology report and learn just exactly what he had done. The condition of his heart revealed that he had…Continue

Hi Laura. I am so sorry to hear about your nephew. I recently lost my 24 year-old son in October, due to an accidental drug overdose - heroine. He had made so much progress over the last few years with his addiction issues, so his death came as quite a shock. He was my only child and I am completely devastated. It's tragic that drugs have killed so many young people in this country.

I lost my nephew to a drug overdose a week ago and I'm shattered, as are of course his family and friends.  I knew he was using but didn't know it would go this far.  I have since learned that addicts really have little ability to kick the habit with meth/heroine/oxycontin -- they are too addictive and the person needs to get into a short or long-term detox rehab center to get clean.  But you can't force them to since they are adults, and since they are addicts they think they can handle the drugs without consequences.  Such a waste of a young life, an amazing guy who gave so much to others, but was searching for something to fill a void in his life and so he turned to meth, and just recently heroin, which is probably what killed him.

To my dear Papa

I have been having trouble finding the words to say, Nothing has seemed right since you've passed away. A daddy's girl through and through, No one will ever compare to you You taught me how to read and write Always kept me in your sight I remember staring into your big blue eyes More beautiful than the bluest skies. There are so many things that I miss, Your loving embrace & a sweet kiss. Most of all I miss your wink and smile, How happy you were when you walked me down the aisle. You will…See More
