August 17, 2016 My daughter died of a heroin overdose at 30 years old
mother lost her way, A child of divorced parents, Ashley never felt the love she deserved, She had 2 wonderfull boys at a young adult age. The struggles of parenthood and Immature spouse led her to pain killers (prescribed at first)got addicted to the pills, Then turned to heroin when pills were no longer available
I only learned this after her death as we lived in separate states and she hid it very well, kept a job,and Survived but miserable she passed august 15, 2016. 15 months later I am STILL DEAD INSIDE, I love my wife and we have good times but nothing excites me or upsets me anymore Im just there.I lost my Mom when I was 7 and never really took to God as I know I should, tried going back to church, but it did not help.
So I wake up daily do what I have to do and have become a home body, I have better days than others but my will is lost.
I so understand how you feel. I always assumed my life would turn out like everybody around me and when I try to reconcile in my heart and mind that it didn’t I am left to wonder why. And I am oftentimes bitter about it. I don’t know how to create a new normal when I don’t want a new normal. I don’t know how to accept the need to go on when I don’t really want to go on. I’m not suicidal and I hope you’re not either, but still I just don’t want to be here on earth where you can get your heart ripped out so easily. Anyway, I just want you to know that I understand your feelings completely and I so wish for comfort to come to your broken heart.
