Michael fought hard against the disease of addiction that started with Oxycontin and moved on to Heroin. It was a five year battle- he was doing well, had a job, living in a sober living house and was happy. He relapsed and overdosed. I had the joy of seeing him the day before he died and the last thing he said to me was, “I love you, Mom.” I’m really grateful for that! While I miss him every day, I’m glad that he doesn’t have to face the shame, guilt and horror of this disease every day. I love you, Michael…but you already knew that.
