My name is Laurie. I am a mother of 3 of my own kids and 3 step kids that are ages 24 to 17.
I’m so tore up over this synthetic drug. One of my boys just got out of this place that’s like prison called safe P. He is a high school graduate, was star of the football and basketball team. He had a very good future ahead of him till he started smoking this stuff and his life went all downhill.
He just got out of safe P and is doing good now, but I always have that fear of him getting back on it because his little brother 19 is smoking it every day.
He went to rehab and for help to get off of it and was doing good for 2 months and one day started smoking it again.
This last few weeks has been the worst for him. He was in a car wreck that should have killed him, but thank God didn’t. Then 2 days later, we had to call the ambulance to our house because he smoked this stuff and started having a seizure in his sleep. And now it seems like every time he smokes it he is having the seizures now.
I’m just so tore up about it and don’t know what to do. I’m so afraid he is going to have one of those seizures and go into a Coma and not come out of it.
I have been reading a lot of articles about this stuff and me and some of my friends whose kids are on it have written a letter to our governor to try to get this one certain store closed down that is selling it. We hope and pray everyday that they will shut these places down that are selling this stuff that is killing our kids.
Please if anyone has any advice for me on helping my son to get off of this stuff and stay away from it, let me know.
I’m at a loss now on how to help him. And I can’t just give up.
