    Tori, I'm soooo sorry for your pain. I also can't stand this time of year as I lost my Paul 11/12/15 to heroin,alcohol, and E. I have the radio on all the time. Something can always bring me relief listening to it. I miss him soooo much & soooo often comes to mind. I would give ANYTHING to have him here to annoy me & pick on me.

    My son Kyle died last June 21st from a heroin/fentanyl overdose. He denied using and from what I found out he had only used for a short time. I found him, he was in a coma for 3 days before passing. The dealers were caught and awaiting trial. We will never understand any of this. Life is so hard, sometimes I feel like my life is just a blur, some days all I can do is make it through work. I'm sorry for all of your losses!

    Hello, friend. We are so sorry for your loss of your son Kyle. Many here share your pain; there are moms and dads here that can identify with what you are feeling and going through......we've been there, are there, will always be there. No parent should have a child predecease them.....it's not natural. What you said about "making it through work" is common. After my son died I insisted on going back to work as soon as possible. Many thought I was nuts (and, in one sense, I guess maybe I was) but the reality was, work was the only thing over which I had any control at that time.....everything else was all helter-skelter. Work kept me sane. And my colleagues, bless them, were wonderful....they simply let me do my job. Hold on to the normalcy of work.....for a few hours, I didn't have to think about my son. Hang in there, friend, you are not alone here.

    Hi Phyllis, my son died the same way, overdosed on June 18, 2017 but died on the 21st. The dealers were caught and one has trial on 9/11 and the other is still in court proceedings, I hope you find the dealers! I feel like Kyle will walk through the door or call me but....I miss him so terribly bad!

    Hi All, My name is Kelly and I see we have a common loss. My son Jack died from an accidental prescription drug overdose on Feb. 21, 2016. I have been grieving his loss ever since. It's been very hard. How are you coping with the upcoming holidays? I'd love to talk to someone via phone sometime soon. If you're interested please let me know. Thank you. Take care and God bless. - Kelly

    Hi Kelly -
    This is such an isolating journey we are on. I understand your intrepidation regarding the upcoming holidays. I guess for me....every day is the same. I find the further I get in this journey...the harder every 3rd of the month is. Holidays just don't feel the same but I don't know why they aren't "harder". Anyways, I would love to talk sometime and create a bond with someone who "gets it". I have many well meaning friends but no one who can really relate. It sucks. Anyways, trying to wind my day down and figure out what work I still need to do.

    Sending hugs your way,

    My son passed away on Nov. 24th 2019 at age 33.
    It was a sudden death probably a drug overdose, still waiting on autopsy report.
    The only reason that I am able to get up in the morning is that I believe that I will someday see my son again.
    If I didn't have that hope, I just couldn't stay on this earth.
    I also have an adult daughter and a 3 year old grandson that I have to live for.

    I am so sorry that Victoria is gone. I have a similar story with my son Jacob. They are gone too soon. It is so painful to be a mother without her child. I struggle at some point every day to keep going. I don't know how to help but to let you know that I am here praying for you.
