Members andy88 Posted March 21, 2011 Members Report Share Posted March 21, 2011 Hi, my name is Pam and I lost my beautiful 22-year old son (probably) to a drug overdose on 2/11/11. We really don't know the actual cause of his death yet...they said it would take 6 - 8 weeks to get a toxicology report. That being said, we are fairly sure in our minds how he died. His name was Andy, and he was my only child, and the light of my life. He was kind, loving, and had many friends. I'm struggling, I miss him so much. He lived with me while he went to community college (and was a straight-A student), so I saw him every day. I guess I'm doing as well as can be expected, but my heart feels like it has been ripped from my chest. I'm expected to go on, go to work, live, and I just don't care about anything right now. I wish I could take a year off and run away to the wilderness for a year. Looking for any support I can get as I am questioning "who am I now? what is my purpose for even being here?" I always defined myself as Andy's mom.I take comfort in knowing he is joyful in heaven and that I will see him again, but how do you go on after something like this? Will I ever feel good again? Thanks for listening.Pam Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
