You Can't Do It Alone
Hello to all my friends here at WA,
This is very hard for me to wright but I feel the need to share in hopes that my story will help others.
It has been a long time since I posted anything on WA and I miss socializing with you all.
On May 10th, 2018 I lost my 29-year-old son Chris to an overdose. He had been suffering from depression and was having a bad day so my daughter Catie invited him over to our house for the night. I knew he had been drinking but didn't realize what else he had been doing. We talked for a while and I told him to go sleep it off. The next day Catie went to wake him but it was too late. I can not put into words the feeling that came over me. This was the worst feeling I had ever exsperienced and the hardest thing I ever had to deal with.
My daughter Catie who was very close to her brother Chris became out of control. One week after losing my son I almost lost Catie too, she was also using drugs and got into a very bad car accident. Once she recovered I convinced her to go into rehab. She agreed and realized she couldn't do it alone. Now she is attending NA and AA meetings regularly and doing great. I am very proud of how far she has come.
My Chris and Catie 2 weeks befor he passed.
I myself have been dealing with depression and finding it hard to stay focused on anything I try to do. The lose of my son is overwhelming and I also realized I can not do it alone. I am now getting professional help to deal with my grieving and depression.
Life has its ways of testing you. You never know what will happen from day to day. We just need to realize the signs that professional help is needed before it's too late. If you or someone you know is suffering from depression or any kind of mental health problem please seek professional help. Think of it like this, you joined WA to get professional help in learning how to build your own online business because you realized you couldn't do it alone!
Never be afraid to reach out for help no matter what situation you are in and don't let your pride get in the way!
Live life to the fullest,
