Free Grief Support - Loss Of A Child | Ever Loved

My son Victor died 3 weeks ago, few days after his 31st birthday from a drug overdose. I know it wasn't a suicide act but more frustrating is that all his friends including his twin brother knew he is into heavy stuff but didn't say anything to me or his mother for years. I feel like I lost a war without even going into battle. It is hard to look in his brother and his friends eyes knowing that because of their stupid immature bonding my son paid the ultimate sacrifice!
I'm an ER physician and I put myself between a lot of overdose victims and God but I could not save my own son!

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have talked to recovered drug addicts as they say they do anything not to let the family know. My son had a lot of medical intervention for the last year of his life and then slipped, which caused his death. I also have a situation where I feel his death could of been avoided because of the bonding as you mention. It's going to take a lot of work for me to work through that anger. Please be kind to yourself. It's such a horrible disease of the brain once they are addicted.
