Missing My Son
by J. Mitchell
Today has been 8 weeks since my son Cody left this world. It has been the toughest 8 weeks of my life! Cody was just 3 weeks shy of his 21st birthday. We still have no answers as to what caused his death. He had previously been on drugs but had completed rehab and had been clean for almost 7 months. We think he may have accidently overdosed (with his tolerance being low, it wouldn't have taken much) but at this time we're still not sure as no reports have come back yet.
One thing I am sure of is that I miss him terribly! We have so many unanswered questions.....some of which will never be answered. His passing left a huge void in our lives....how do you fill it?? The holidays were horrible! The only thing that got me through was my daughters and grandchildren. Most days I feel like I'm walking around in a fog.....is there no way out of this??
The pain and hurt is almost unbearable......
