This morning when I arrived at work a friend informed me that her friend's son had died of a heart attack.
This friend of her's was someone that she had sent to my blog because her son was an addict. She said her friend's son had been clean for 6 months but had sustained damage to his heart from his drug use. Yesterday evening he suffered a fatal heart attack at the age of 25.
I am sorry for this mom. I did not know her personally but as all of you that read these blogs I feel a special kinship to parents with children addicted. To this dear Mom, you are in our thoughts.
This is a harsh reminder of the damage that is done to the addict from this disease.
