- Wedding: June 2011
I don’t even know where to start. I hoped never to have to post in this section. But here goes… This particular bridesmaid… We’ll call her T and I have been friends for about 4 years. We met eachother in a 12 step recovery program, that shall go un-named. She’s basically been in and out of said program since she was 15 (8 years) and everytime she turns her life around and starts to build everything back up, she relapses and pulls it back down on herself. It’s frustrating. She recently had a year sober (again) and then screwed it up.
Basically she’s been dating this guy for the last six months or maybe a bit longer that is the same guy she relapsed with LAST time. And the two of them basically cut themselves off from everyone slowly. Then a few weeks ago her gay friend that lived with her last time she relapsed moved in with her again. See where this is going? They all three relapsed together.
I kind of saw this coming from a mile away, and talked with her about it, but she didn’t want to hear it. Somehow I thought it would be easier to deal with this time because I knew it was coming, but it wasn’t.
Basically what ended up happening (from what I understand) was that she relapsed with her drug of choice, which is Heroin. She shot up on and off for a week and then today she overdosed. She’s in the ICU now. They think she’ll probably be fine, but even if she is, she’s likely going to go to jail.
I’m really not worried about if she can be in my wedding or not at the moment, I’m worried about if she’s going to recover from this. So I’m not asking for advice of whether or not to keep her in the wedding because when she’s sober, which is 99% of the time she’s a good friend. If she’s able to be in it then I want her in it. I’m just upset and needed to vent. I guess I’m just looking for support because I can’t go see her or talk to her until Tomorrow or the next day. Please keep her and her family in your prayers.
