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 twenty year old addict – attempting to help with the slaying of the dragon.
