    So I registered on this board shortly before my husband passed away. I will breifly write what happened.

    I had been admitted to detox on a Friday Nov 23 for the first time in my life. My husband picked me up that Monday. We had talked about going to AA meeting together and we were going to support each other. My husband had an addiction to pills. I had been prescribed Naltrexon that weekend. The Monday he picked me up I got my prescription and was on my way to recovery. The next morning I woke up to my husband having a hard time breathing. I asked what was wrong and he told me he had taken one of my naltroxen pills. He has a morphine pump in his body for spasms so he thought he was going through withdrawals becuase of the pill. He told me he thought the pill might help him sleep but I knew he was trying to get some feeling or fix. I called the ambulance and within an hour he died!

    So I am at a total loss. I am mad, and hurt that he left me. I don’t know what to think or do with myself. The person that was my support is gone. I feel so guilty for many reasons. I have started drinking again becuase my pain is to great. I don’t know what else to do. Any thoughts!!!! I am at the end of my rope.
