My husband, Jason lost his almost 10 year off and on addiction to opiods in November of 2016.
Jay was one of the nicest and caring person I have ever met. He would bend over backwards to help a friend or family member out, even if he didn't technically know how to do something he would research and gain enough knowledge to get whatever it was that needed to be done, done.
Jay suffered from painful kidney stones ever since I met him in 2000. He went through multiple procedures called a lithotripsy. A lithotripsy uses shockwaves to break down stones to be able to pass with more ease. With this procedure comes pain and the need for medication. After numerous procedures and pain medication, a person becomes reliant on them.
Jay is not defined by his addiction. I am lucky to of had him in my life for 16 years and gain his family as my own.
