Letters From Family & Friends of Meth Addicts

    Hoping to Feel Better

    I have just finished reading letters from other families that have been hurt by this drug. I thought that after reading them, I'd feel better, knowing that my pain wasn't isolated. I guess I was wrong, because I now realize that my child is not the only child who is now missing her daddy. I'm not the only woman who has lost her husband to meth. As I sit here, I am so overcome with grief. I could not save my best friend. I tried so hard to help, thinking tough love was the answer. The absence of my presence only opened the doors of opportunity. Now, I have to face the fact that I will be raising our daughter alone. I'll be fine, but our precious little 4 year old girl will not. You see, she only sees her daddy as a little girl should, he is everything to her. Up until a month ago, he was so very involved in her life. Now, because of his mistakes, she may not get to spend time with her daddy until she's 14. Every day, I wake up and go to sleep with this enormous burden on my mind. Please, if there is a way to ease this pain, I need to know. I feel so alone in my situation, even though I know differently. Will we ever be ok? How do I handle letting my very best friend slip away? Why couldn't I, of all people, make him better? My heart has truly been broken. How could he just go away like this? I know it wasn't by choice, but how could he just leave us? Now, it's just the 2 of us, left to put the pieces back together. Our lives have been deeply damaged by this drug, I only pray that the innocent little one will not be the one to feel the most pain. God, if you're listening, we need you now, more than ever.
