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.
