Why “heroin heroine?”

Because this is what I want my daughter to be.
The slayer of the internal dragon of addiction.

Because this is what my daughter already is.
A courageous warrior who fights a daily battle for survival.

Because these two words married together make no sense.
And that is exactly what this disease is: nonsensical.

Who am I?

The mother of a 20 year old suffering from addiction….attempting to help with the slaying of the dragon.
