As Jason's wife,I was against him being on oxycodone! I was not an addict quite like he was. Yes I had my own problems, and had back surgery. My pain was no where near what his mental pain was. We loved each other very much! I tried to get him help at Ogden Regional hospital. They said "no, he's not shooting up drugs therefore he's not bad." It seemed like another brick in the wall. Finally the V.A said they could help, until they held him down and mistreated him. He came home after that and gave up. Not a day goes by that I don't see him or think of him. I miss him very much! His daughter looks just like him. I wish more people could understand how this all works. I haven't touched pain meds for 7 years. Yes I still feel pain, but at least I know my brain is functioning and healthy thinking. I hope more people can read this and know that there is always a tomorrow. Never give in and never give up! Always move in a forward direction. It's too easy to be or feel stuck. Always seek help and support. Never feel like nobody cares. This has been a ripple effect throughout everyone's lives who loved Jason. We all have dealt with it differently... I try to keep a positive attitude all the time. I know he's watching over all of us and he's waiting to meet us when it's our time. I just know he'll never feel pain or suffer anymore. I'll always love you Jas..
