  1. wow..that is powerful stuff, right there. I know i sound like a broken record sometimes on here, but being in the artist community, this type of story isn’t unusual.It’s just that the ending isn’t always as positive. I have watched both happen over the past 10 years in good ole York , pa which has one of the highest opiod addiction rates around. Most of the young people get addicted to heroin and/or adder all. In fact, i personally know a few street dealers of the latter( and they are now paying for their crimes) . It sucks. But i am always happy when i hear about someones parents who stayed the course. I cannot say i could have been as strong.Thanks Dwight.

    • I just can’t even imagine what a living hell this is for both child and parents. Such a horrible disease! I can’t help but feel as a society we have failed to address addiction. The shitty part is I have no answers. Thank you for reading❤️

  2. I’ve cried twice today which is pretty unusual for me these days. The first time I cried was for me, purely because I had a shitty day and then got rejected for a job and the second time was reading this letter. I won’t go into major details but I’m the parent of an addict too, and there’s a lot here that resonates with me. But I rarely cry these days because actually, I have hope, and I didn’t always have that.

    Thank you for posting this! X
