          What Life Is Like For Heroin-Addicted Grandma Who Gets High With Her Son

          September 5, 2016

          When Kathy discovered that her son, Erik, was snorting heroin, she decided to give it a try, too. "I'm kind of embarrassed that I did like it. I started off once in a while," says Kathy, who is a grandma of two. "I snort five or six lines per day now."

          "I don't know how many people this past year have said that I'm kind of different. And I am kind of different," says Kathy through tears. "It's a vicious cycle. There's no one to blame but myself. I'm very uncomfortable in my own skin. I don't like myself. I have a lot of regrets."
