Default Another senseless death to overdose

Got the news this morning. Wasn't unexpected. So very sad, but not shocking. I guess one could say the proverbial "we all knew it was coming..." but that won't change the fact that another loved one was found dead from an overdose of heroin. That won't change the fact that 3 young children who have already seen and experienced so much death in their short years will never hear from or see their daddy ever again. And it doesn't change the fact that there are and will be others following the same path

My heart is breaking for everyone affected by addiction, whether it be the loved of an addict or the addict themselves.

So sorry to be reading this. Thoughts to all those affected. Addiction is a horrible thing. I have one who is on drugs but doesn't admit its an addiction. I worry about the grandkids.

Yes, I'm sorry for your loss. You've seen too much of what addiction can do in your life and it's unfortunate that so many people have come along and come to pass that you have close to. You're a dear soul.

It is sad, for all involved. But as heartbreaking as it is for those adults that loved him, its the kids, the wee ones, that I worry about. The oldest (12) lived with 2 addicted parents from day 1, the other 2 (10 & 8) were born addicted. I'm not going to get into all the sordid details, suffice it to say the 3 boys have been reunited with their mom & her boyfriend (both clean 2 1/2 years) in the last 6 months, but the dad has been "out there," living in a car, couch surfing and/or homeless for a couple of years+ .....he was tired of the pain, I hope he's found his peace heavy sigh

This is so very sad! I pray the children have a strong support system and can stay clear of drugs and alcohol as they get older.
