    My name is Taylor. My boyfriend died about 3 weeks ago to an overdose. I came home from work and found him. I was unaware of his relapse. I've been struggling with how to deal with this sudden loss and trauma. Even our dog is grieving and I don't even know how to handle that.

    Hey Dremme, My husband just passed away as well with a relapse on the 17th. i also found him. i'm not sure if this support group helps or hurts at this point. i started following today and it seems like i have been alittle off my rocker today. my dog seems to be missing him also. i can totally relate. he was my soul mate. i don't even know who i am anymore. i feel empty every day i breathe without him. nothing seems normal. but i know i'm suppose to live my life. i just don't know how. i go to my first therapy session tomorrow i pray that helps somehow. i hope you are seeing someone for your trauma of finding him. :(
