In September of 2014 we lost my only baby brother to dusting:( he was 29 a father of 2 sweet girls ages 6 and 4. He hid it so well none of the family knew about it until 1 week before he passed. We tried to get him help but on the night of his first apt. He never made it, because he dissapeared. We hunted and searched days for him and finally after being missing for 3 days they found him in his van with 25-30 cans of dust off empty and he had suffered a massive heart attack:( I thought after the funeral I would have some closure, but no. It's all still so surreal and he's been gone for 5 months now. We don't have all the answers and I'm so sad! It's affecting my marriage, my husband doesn't understand how I feel. This is so tough and I just am curious how does one cope with this? I will never accept it. I feel stupid too cause I didn't even know dust off was a drug:(

My healthy, beautiful, hard working 23 year old son died from a bad mix of party medications. He partied too hard, is perhaps how you would say it.  I haven't gotten the report yet, and I am afraid of what it will say.

We were close in spurts. This wasn't one of those spurts. I hadn't seen him in a long while. I am in denial, and will stay that way. :)

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.
