I am a 34-year-old recovering addict with two years clean. I live in Southern California, am shy, quiet, like to read and write. I have 2 daughters in heaven that I lost to miscarriage. I struggle with depression and anxiety.
About my Loss:
I lost my best friend yesterday to an opiate overdose. He was in recovery and celebrated two years clean the day before. He had taken some of my prescription methadone. He was in my room when it happened. when I checked on him-h=we had been cleaning my apt and I thought he went to sleep-he had stopped breathing. He was in cardiac arrest when paramedics arrived and they couldn't save him. I don't know how I will get through this. he was an amazing person. I keep thinking if I had done some little thing differently, he would still be alive.
