Moving through grief after losing her brother Joseph to addiction, a very brave Megan shares her story of healing from the addiction that plagued her family for 20 years. This raw, emotional episode, was recorded only two weeks after Joseph passed away. He was only 32 years young.
Nothing prepares you for the roller coaster ride that you experience when a loved one battles alcoholism or addiction.
Megan a mom of two young children, a teacher, a sister, shares her perspective on being a big sister, bearing witness to her brother’s struggle with addiction. She shares her families experience, the difficult choices, the love, the peace, the happy memories, the anger, the pain and the roller coaster she has been riding for 20 years.
I applaud Megan for her bravery, sharing her story so that Joseph did not die in vain, helping others families heal from losing a loved one to addiction.
