... through this
I am so sorry that this has happened. You are reaching out and that is ever so important. There are many many woderful people on this site. You have come to the right place. All the words in the world won't return your son, but rest in the knowledge that his life can be a light to others. Share your story and maybe someone else can reap the benefits.
Opiates like morphine can be very dangerous and there are many many people experimenting with them abusively. It is an "epidemic" as one poster on this site recently said. People don't realize how addictive they are and that taken in too high a quantity can put you asleep for ever.
I pray that you will release your grief and find peace in knowing your son is in
better place. I don't know how religious you are or what you believe but I believe God shows mercy to people who are confused and hurting. Continue to reach out and allow yourself to grieve.
May the peace of the Lord be with you,
I am so sorry for your loss. I have had this fear with my own son for years, & can't imaginge what I'd do or how I would cope if this happened to me, so my heart goes out to you. My brothers sister lost her 28 year old son due to a rare illness that just snuffed his life away. It took some time, but as she will never get over it, time dose help heal the wounds left behind. This is a great place to come to talk, & maybe you can be of help to others that are coping with this awful disease of addiction. I wish you all the best...
My ex-husband just shot himself on mother's day and left me and my 12yr old daughter, though he was not a daughter or son, i still loved him. I know what you are going through in a way, losing someone you love is very hard. I still wake up everyday ready for his phone call or going to call him to talk about our daughter, then their is the dealing of my daughter who want's to no how daddy died. I get through it knowing first he was an alcoholic and had many many problems. He is now no longer suffering and hurting and in god's hands where he doesn't feel the pain that drew him to suicide. I explain to my daughter that he will always be with her in her heart and watching up above. I truly believe he is happier in death than he was in life. I remember the good times and don't think about how he died. I just think he is no longer in pain no longer suffering physically and mentally he is at peace and therefore so am i.
You are in my prayers and i am terribly sorry this has happened. I'll friend you and if you ever want to private message me please feel free.
