Losing my sister

My sister was beautiful, naturally smart and Independent. She had all A's through high school without even studying. Unlike me and my brother. She was different. She went to college for accounting. Made so much money with the little jobs she had in high school by the way.. Was just amazing.

Down the road she met this man.. He treated her like gold for 3 years (so she said). His family convinced her to get disability because she had seizures.. That's when everything went down hill. She didn't work anymore and he introduced her to drugs. She was an addict for 10 years and I'm telling you I've seen it all.

I went through EVERYTHING with my mom. Nobody saw her addiction like me and my mother did. Soon after she had a baby, she stayed sober the whole pregnancy. But then started back up again, but the sister I knew was gone. The sister I loved and cared about the sister I LOOKED UP TO. She overdosed so many times causing scenes with paramedics and nurses. Drinking alcohol and taking large amounts of pills.

On a Friday I was getting off the bus my junior year... I get in the car to my mom crying telling me my sister passed. Everything changed after that. The mother I looked up to my best friend she changed drastically. And it broke my heart.

Addicts do not know what they do to family. Now my sisters soon is 4. And he has to grow up with no mother to care for him. I will never be the same because I lost my sister and the mom that I once knew. I hope all that read this understands what the family goes through. I hope everyone reads my story and realizes that drugs aren't worth it and never will be.
