by karen chism
My son jason has always taken things to the extreme. But i could cope with the dare devil tricks, broken bones trips to the er. But the night he graduated high school 2006. I lost him that weekend. A friend introduced him to methadone. So the last seven years has been tramatic. Dui. Rolled his car. Getting jumped at a party and he was kicked in the back of his head. The doctor said if it wasn't for the drug induced state he was in, that kick would have killed him. Also 5 over dose's he started mixing methadone and xanax with alcohol. Each time I found him he was clinicaly dead. But not this last time. He was going to enter a rehab that was founded by a personal family friend monday. I spoke to my son saturday night at 6:30 pm. He sounded fine, but i had a bad feling, i asked if I could come and get him. He could spend the weekend and then start over on monday. He said he had a date that night but he would call me sunday morning and he would move in until rehab. The corner put his time of death between 8 pm - 9pm saturday night. The phone call i got sunday morning was from a close friend telling me my son was dead. I stood for hours outside his room until they pulled him out. He was bleeding eyes, nose, mouth, ears. He was so cold. I stood under a tree and said good bye to my son. Toxacolgy report will take months, but it looks like he did a speed ball. That is when methadone, xanax, and cocain is crushed, mixed and snorted. Its death in a second. A new friend showed him that trick. He wanted to be loved by everyone. The next day i cleaned out his rental, moved the bedding away, were he died was a drawing of jesus on the floor. My son had his salvation he was babtised 2003. I found letters and poems to jesus. My son was tormented but he knew GOD. But i still cannot let go.
