Lost and So Scared
(Vernon Ct USA)
My son Dan is 27 we lost my nephew to heroin Aug 2009, and his best friend Feb 2011. I new this was tearing him apart and new Dan struggled with drug mainly pills after a surgery but never new just how far it went. This past couple of years have been **ll. I helped with rent even though he had a good job, when i finally found out it was heroin and pills i lost it. I did not understand how he could use after losing a family member and i was so upset and felt horrible i thought my brother would hate him but he did not my family love him.His younger brother is not as close to him anymore and it hurts , well after 3 rehabs one for 3 days, one for 7 and one for 6 weeks he came to stay with me .
It started over after 4 months clean and 4 days ago he tried to over dose so he could take the pain away from me and his loved one his girlfriend of 5 years and her son who is 8 and was to be his stepson. Last night i heard what no parent wants to hear I tried to kill myself, what do i have always been there and always will but how do i get him help he has no job and no money. He is stealing and he want to get well i found this page when i was looking for help, i will be passing it on to my brother and sister in-law. he did more heroin then ever at one time, i pray for all of you and your daily struggles with your losses God Bless you and your families.
We are starting a new Church together and i am going to go to meeting with him he wants to do a 30 30 i am not sure if this will work and i know i cant be there for him everyday and am so afraid i will come home and he will be gone
