Pathetic. You should have been taking care of your 5-year-old daughter and living for her, not this drug.

There is an epidemic of oxycontin and heroin. Don't these people understand what it means to sell your soul to the devil?

I know personally that she struggled for a very long time with addiction, which is a horrible thing to battle. I wish her the best and hope she learns to be smarter from this incident when it comes to helping a so called friend
