it makes me so sad to read so many stories that mirror my life, but at the same time i think it helps a little to know that there are others in the same situation and it is not just me that things have gone wrong for, i wrote my story on christmas eve when i was so low and needed an outlet for my hurt, in short my son has been a heroin addict for more than 17 years now, he hit rock bottom living on the streets, went to prison then gradually seemed to turn his life around, he went through rehab and we slowly tried to get back some sort of normality, but then he relapsed big time. he repeatedly has told me he loves me and that i dont deserve to go through this hell, so why oh why does he still use? he says its the only way he can feel "normal" i just dont know what to do any more, i cannot look at him without remembering all he has put our family through, i just want it all to stop ive rambled on again but i do find some sort of relief in writing this down, i would like to say to everyone suffering like me, keep strong and try to remember all the good in your life, not easy i know but its what helps me to carry on, and you never know one day things may get a little more bearable xxx
