About my Loss:
My son passed away early morning of November 22 of an accidental overdose. He had insomnia and someone had sold him a fentanyl patch to "slow him down." It worked one night, but didn't the next and then someone gave him Xanax. Died of respiratory failure. I was sleeping next to him. He had called me to come (he lived in TX but was moving to Florida). He had no idea what the patch really was. I am having the woman who sold it prosecuted. I am heartbroken.

Oh Jill, that is so awful...my son was into Xanax with his friends. I don't understand why. Good for you to have her prosecuted, I only wish I could find the person that turned my son onto heroin, ultimately I know it was his choice to do it of course. Hugs to you, I'm so sorry.

My husband died 17 months ago of severe acute pancreatitis. He was perfectly well one day and the next day I had to drive him to hospital with severe gut pain.3 days later we were told there was nothing more they could do for him and we had to withdraw the life support. The enzymes of the pancreas destroys itself and the other surrounding organs. They said it was caused by drink but he only drank half a bottle of wine a night. The first few months I was 0.K. Then I crashed and had to be…See More

A little over 6 months ago I lost my husband of 43 years. We were only 19 & 20 when we got married so we essentially grew up together. He has been my best friend, my confidante, my love. About 5 years ago he developed COPD so we knew our time together might be limited, however many people live several years with COPD by keeping it under control. Unfortunately, last May, he developed a lung infection and was very sick, in the hospital for the first time in his 63 years. But once under…See More
