My brother

I thought I would post about my loss.

Feb 20th 2002 I lost my older brother JJ to an accidental overdose. He was 26 years old. I'll never forget that day or the days after. It was the worst experience I have ever had to deal with. Not only did I have to deal with the loss I was in fear of losing my mother also to greif. Its been over 2 years and not an hour goes by that I don't think about him. We didn't have a relationship most of our lives but we seem to pull everything together the last year of his life. I'm glad we had that time to "fix" our relationship, at least I don't have regrets.
I not here to post because I want anyone to feel sorry for me, I'm doing it more to let people know that you need to remember that if your doing drugs your not only hurting yourself your hurting your family. I know his pain with his addiction has ended but our pain began the day we lost him. I'll never forget him......
