Tim also overdosed on heroin. Tim was not an addict or a regular user, he couldn't handle 2 beers without falling asleep. His girlfriend was 100% anti-drug. We still don't know the how, why, who or anything and it's 2 1/2 years now. My younger son found him in his room April 5th, 2009. He was already gone and the operator at 911 kept telling me to do cpr, he didn't understand or listen that Tim was already gone.
I'm sorry for your loss, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I understand what you mean when you say he was like a different person when he was using. My brother was an addict and alcoholic. The only comfort I have from losing him is knowing his pain is gone, the demons are gone and he's not sick anymore.
I'm glad to have met you, although I wish it had been under better circumstances. Write me anytime.
I lost my 25 year old son to an accidental drug overdose. I know your pain, I feel it everyday and I'm so so so sorry you have to go through this too. Please know you are not alone, we share hearts, we share pain, we share an overwhelming loss that words cannot describe.
All I can offer is my hand and to walk this road with you. *hugs*
