I lost my husband to a qeutiapine overdose 2 1/2 months ago. I'm trying to understand the WHY and spend most of my time looking for answers that I will probably never find.

I lost my mother to a overdose over a year ago. My hearts broken. I had always knew she had been on pain killers but I didn't know she was on she was on hard drugs althought I knew she smoked. When I was a kid I would beg her to quit smoking because I was afraid she would die but she never did. Anyway the last 5 years of her life I started to get a feeling she had a problem because she was losing her mind. Making up story's that were realy to her but I knew couldn't be true. Also I stay the night a her and she go though withdrew big time and would be begging to god that she didn't want to die but to please stop the pain. Anyway a few weaks after she dead I found out there were a few cause of death. She had a weak heart, over whaight and a overdose of painkillers and myth. Now that she's gone I found not only has she been on drugs almost my whole life but the drugs made her do some bad things. Like when I was 8 but my dad left my mom because she wouldn't get clean so to get back at him she told cops that my dad was hurting me and doing bad things to me. I don't remember this story my aunt just told me. I can't Belive my mom would do that. My dad would never ever hurt me. Sometimes I wonder if I ever realy knew her and yet I still wish I could have my mom back. I feel so lost , confused and depressed. Also add the fact that my moms family is to mad at her to have a memoral and it's been over a year. So I have her ashes in my room. I'm sorry for the long post I just needed to get it out.

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.
