    Dad, I am a heroin addict. I am sorry, you have devoted your entire life to providing your kids with everything they need to succeed. You are an amazing man. You have done every possible thing to make the best possible life for us but somehow I have managed to screw it up. I am not a good person, I am liar, a thief, an ungrateful, irresponsible junkie. I just wanted to let you know it’s not your fault I turned out like this. You are perfect, you didn’t deserve to have me as your daughter and I didn’t deserve someone as wonderful as you as a father. I love you, I am sorry.

      You sound like my sister. She killed herself ten years ago with a heroin overdose. Don’t you fucking dare.

      My brother is now a recovering drug addict, all I can say is that it’s heart breaking to watch them go through life like that, but just know that no matter how disappointed we get, your family will always love you no matter what. No matter how many hurtful words you say, no matter how many hurtful actions you bring towards them. They will always love you. After 6 years of wondering if I would ever see my brother again I’m slowly seeing glimpses of who he used to be. I live in fear that he’ll relapse or turn into the frightening person he was before, but I’ll never stop loving him. So just know that no matter what, your family will always love you. They may not show it all the time, but they will never stop.

      It’s 11:45PM. In fifteen minutes it will be a new day. Tomorrow will be different than today. You’ll have different struggles, you’ll have different encounters, and you’ll also have different successes (if you allow yourself to). IF…IF…IF- YOU…YOU…YOU(it has to be YOU)-allow yourself to. But it all starts with you, but you won’t have to go through it alone. Please know, you aren’t alone.

      Good luck…and many prayers.
