Loss of a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide

If you have lost a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide please share your story or feelings here. Share the love and beauty of the one you lost. Losing someone any of these ways is not natural and can be hard to understand and ask why? I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago. She also suffered from major depression. Her doctor got her hooked on pain medication and she was addicted most of my life. These doctors who were suppose to help her ended up killing her in the end. I also lost my twin sister to an overdose last month 8/2019 which was shocking because I was unaware she was using. She suffered from anxiety and depression most of her life and after my Mother passed away it only intensified. The men in her life used my sister and took advantage of her kindness and broke her down. She deserved a better life and not to suffer for so long. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She self medicated with drinking for several years but tried fighting it. She was suppose to go into treatment for alcohol and an eating disorder in a matter of a week or two before she passed away. I was closest to her out of anyone in her life and I did not see the signs until after she had passed away. I wish I could go back in time.

Most people who are not familiar with addiction or anxiety/depression look at people who suffer and think it is a choice. It is a disease just like cancer. These people who are suffering cannot help how they feel and they want to fight it but maybe they feel they are not good enough, or they are not loved. Maybe they were molested, raped, abused or bullied, maybe they have a medical condition that triggered self medication or maybe they do not want want to feel pain or depression anymore. Whatever it is they are people and deserve love, compassion and respect. 

I also hope that if someone feels they are suffering with alcohol, substance or feelings of suicide they can also reach out and post on here for support without judgement. I feel too many people feel alone and they should not. Strangers can be there for one another too.
