In June 2006, my eighty yr old father went into his closet and shot himself in the chest. He died on the spot.

In June 2007, my 50 yr old husband of 29 yrs died during the night of a massive heartattack.

In March 2010, my 28 yr old son, who held my heart from day 1 and still has it to this day, died in my bed of a drug overdose.

I feel like I am an empty person going through the daily motions of life, but there is no life within me.

I was able to get on with life after the passing of my father and my husband, but losing my Michael, my only son is too much.

I ask myself "why?" all the time. I lost my son 8/9/10 to leukemia. He was only 23. I've lost my sister, my dad, my grandparents and other people and I was able to move on. But my son?!! Why?!

Rebecca- life has certainly thrown you some curve balls hasn't it? It must have been terrible to see your son on this path of destruction, but how could you have stopped him. It sounds like you were doing your best for him, but sometimes we have to accept that some people have addictive personalities, and nothing we do can change that.

I don't know what to say to you, except one step, one breath at a time.

Take care.
