jason was 23 when he died
by karen chism
When i was 20 years old i was an cocaine addict. One night i over dosed, when i woke up in the hospital i was told i was pregnant. I was a scared single mother, but i made a promise, get clean, get an education, support my baby and never let anything get to him or hurt him like it did me. I failed. That promise wasnt kept. Even though i stayed clean. Church raised my son. I lost him to methadone and a laundry list of other drugs. I would throw away every thing i own, i would give anything to be able to give him one more hug. My purpose to change, to live and work hard is gone. Im so shattered I cant cope right now.
