When The Addict Who Dies Is Someone You Love
Ijeoma Oluo

This hits home. My little sister is currently in recovery but anyone who’s been down this road knows that it’s never one and done with recovery. This is her 4th (5th?) trip down that path. There’s been overdoses, missing nights spent in abandoned houses, jail, etc. Addiction is an awful disease and the people are very real not just numbers. Thanks for sharing your story, it’s an all too real fear that one day I’ll be sharing a personal version of this myself. I hope you found some comfort in sharing this and that it was therapeutic.
