    Trapped in grief and

    although I live and breath, walk and talk; I am not as alive as I was before my son overdosed at 22. I waver between wanting my old life back and wanting to start a brand new one. I just don't want to be this person who can't escape the pain.

    Sometimes it feels like I am not

    who I really am,as if I'm some sort of greater energy trapped inside this bodh as if I were to serve a greater purpose. Does this thought come into any of your minds? Why do I get these feelings ? Are they natural?
