My beautiful son and only child lost his battle with addiction last September. I watched him struggle with his addiction for almost 8 years. In and out of rehab only to watch him self destruct. Then my worst fear, the call in the middle of the night from intensive care unit telling me to rush to the hospital. All my hopes and dreams for him gone. He never got married, never graduated from college and had no children. I feel like what a loss, he had so much potential to be something great. For myself I lost myself that day too and can't seem to find my way back from this. He was the love of my life, my pride and joy. For other parents going through this, I agonize with you. I feel the pain will never go away and my heart will never heal and I know there are many other parents who feel this same way. Someone has to help save this generation of young adults.
