Hello, my name is Kat. I wanted to thank you for allowing me to join your group and being able to be involved with this growing issue. I am a recovering addict, going on about 10 years. I am also a mother of a child that died of an overdose. I was so involved with his life and trying to heal him, even though I knew I couldn't. Especially because I am a recovering addict and no one could fix or heal me until I was ready. I thought because I been thru it, that I knew everything and could help him better than anyone else. How wrong I was! So I am here just to remind myself that I didn't kill my son, that I couldn't save him no matter how much I tried and just to remember that I am not alone.
