... and mouth to mouth. he came to,breathing again and eyes open.however when emts arrived and narcan was administered several times, he passed. just wondering if any other experiences have occured. i hope not, but i feel i need to ask... joe
joebudha, I am so sorry no one has answered your question. I am also very sorry for your loss.This had to be the hardest thing you have ever experienced, & my heart aches for you. I have no personal experience in this way, but that is no reason that I cannot have sympathy for you & you loved ones. I think I would want to die I one of my boys did this to themselves, & I were to lose them. Its not suppose to happen this way. May your burdened heart be lifted...
I, too, am so sorry to hear of your tragic loss and suffering. I do not have any experience with this type of passing, however I was with my Grandfather when he went to be with the Lord. He had been on hospice for several weeks and finally the day came that the nurse called the family in to say the time was near. My grandfather's eyes were closed and his breathing was extremely shallow. He was at this state for a few hours and I finally leaned in and told him in his ear, "we are here with you, Grandaddy, and I want you to know that we are going to take good care of Grandmother. You can have rest now'. It was a matter of seconds and his eyes opened. He took a few more breaths and then he closed his eyes and was gone. I know this may be apples and oranges to you, but what I know in my heart is, when his eyes opened it told me that he heard me. He knew we were there, and he felt comfort in knowing that we would take care of his love. He was at peace. I feel I need to share this with you because, I believe your son knew you were there, felt your presence and your love. He knew how much you loved him and how hard you fought for him. And, even though it's not how it's supposed to be, our children going before us, I hope that one day you can have peace in knowing that your son is resting now, too.

I recently lost my bf that I lived with to an od of heroin. He had an addiction for ~ 13 years, but was clean when I met him. Clean for 5 years. I never knew him as an addict, although I now know that you are always an addict. He seemed very off the night he went to bed, almost talking drunk, but told me that he had taken sleeping pills bc he wasn't sleeping. He went to sleep snoring. In the morning, he had passed. I later found heroin and sticks of xanax. I'm aboslutely devestated, not only from the loss of him, but the betrayal-I had no idea he was using. SO I feel your pain. I know CPR, but when I awoke he was already cold and blue.
Hi JoeB, My name is David. I hope you are still here with us on this site. I can't believe no one found this post until now. So sorry! We have just had one of our dear friends Son, Kill him self. Not from an over dose, but drugs killed him. He had been on drugs but was trying to get help. He had just came from the hospital where they gave him an injection of an antidepressant. Not 3 hours later he shot him self he was 19. I can only imagine your pain. Our friend is going to grief counseling. And talks with my wife allot about it. She is getting along day by day. I hate those drugs with a passion!! I am a narcotic addict of 8 years, clean now for 3+years. Not because I wanted to stop, I too had an over dose here at my house. My poor wife had to give me CPR until the EMS arrived. Narcan did nothing for me either. I was in a coma 5 days. Some how I survived. She is still in pain over that. Find a good support group, I have found the best one here.
This place is A gift form God! You will find so much help here. I really do not know how your message went unanswered for that long. Please leave another post and keep in touch. Sorry for your loss! Dave
