heroin overdose

Yesterday, I walked into my boyfriend collapsing at my feet due to a heroin overdose. I spent 12 minutes reviving him, screaming, crying, trying to get him to say ANYTHING. He wouldn't even blink. He lived though. But I find myself devastated. I can't stop crying
I can't sleep in my bed where.my boyfriend almost died at the foot of it. I can't look in the mirror. I can't even look at him. I have no one to turn to except my mom. What do I do? Im so overwhelmed. I can't smile. Will this go away? I dont understand why I am so upset, he lived.!!!! I can't image what everyone else has went through

I lost my ex-husband to a methadone overdose September 24, 2011. We went through it all and exactly a year prior, he lay collapsed on our bed when I returned home one night while our son was in his care, he "almost" died that night...he was too weak to battle his addiction. I was too tired to ride along. I am coping with his death and the anger and guilt I feel engulfs me but, it was in his hands and nothing I ever tried saved him.

Please, find you....addiction kills and my children and I live with that reality everyday.

Sorry about your boyfriend. Sounds as though he need to seek treatment for his addiction. Most importantly, you deserve BETTER. Do not allow his addiction to destroy you. I have been a licensed Drug and Alcohol counselor for over 20 years. His addiction will only progress unless he seeks help. Living with an addict can be stressful, agonizing to say the least. Both of you ned to seek help, him for his addiction, and you for your co-dependence issue. Good luck
