My Tribute: My beautiful daughter Stacey was 21 years old when you died from an accidental overdose in November 2015. Stacey had dealt with depression and anxiety throughout her high school years and sadly, was misdiagnosed two times. She was on medication for bipolar and a mood disorder for over 7 years which ended up not being what she needed, so instead she coped by using opioids. She was finally able to get herself on suboxone and the last year of her life she was coming back to us. However, the suspension of the doctor who was prescribing her meds and a family doctor who let her down, she was once on her own again with no help. Stacey had the most beautiful smile that could light up a room, she was shy, very funny, compassionate, enjoying working with children and loved animals. I miss her every single day and my life will never be the same without her in it. I know she is well in Heaven and I will be able to hug her again some day.
