My best friend Bobby, died 2 years ago of a drug overdose and ever since i've been trying to get back to a "normal" place but i cant seem to do it. All i can think about is him and i put on this mask when i am around people. My other really good friend Tyler was also really close to Bobby and he tries to get me to talk to him but i just cant find the words. what do you think i should do?

My sister, Cate, died about six months ago from a drug overdose as well. Drugs do terrible things not only to the people who take them, but the people who surround the addicts - it really affects everyone. I know that it's really hard to get past losing someone so close to you. The thing that helped me when i could get people to understand how i was feeling was writing about it. cliche i know but it actually helped a lot. Once i showed my friends what i had written, they understood so much better.
