Viral Sensation: Woman’s Raw Post on Addiction Surges in Popularity Following Tragic Death of Brother-in-Law from Overdose

Nichole Cicotte told her fans that the man in the bed was her husband’s older brother. She wrote the first post and shared the moving images of family members surrounding a hospital bed.

Cicotte posted the photo with the caption: “Relatives surround my brother-in law in the hospital.”

Cicotte’s post, which was later re-published on “Love What Matters” blog on December 6, stated “That is dependency.” It’s the 3 am phone name we feared would come, but hoped it wouldn’t. A physician has to tell another household that a loved one is legally braindead. A mother’s heart is ripped from her chest. It’s a room full of siblings, nieces, and nephews, cousins. aunts, uncles, and friends who are kicking themselves for not doing more to save you.

She wrote: “It is a son and a daughter who have to figure out this world without their father.” “That’s an empty seat at every family event. It’s waking up Monday morning and feeling empty. Feeling angry because you can’t do this to us. We all know that you have fought hard to recover. We wonder if we could have done more to save you. You’re feeling a sense of relief that you aren’t fighting your demons. Finding comfort in knowing that the Caucasian John Doe they have within the morgue, isn’t really you.

She wrote: “This is a guy who loved with all he had.” “A person that valued family more than anything else. A father who loved his children. A father who loved his children. It’s ‘just one more time’… ‘just little bit of a hit’… “I know my tolerance”… 6 months without you and still not knowing how to cope. This is dependency. Medication don’t love you. “Your loved ones and friends do.”

The grieving mother wrote in a tribute that she hopes the story of her 35-year old son will “help someone search sobriety” and that this could be an indicator that “our story helped someone get sober and get a second chance, not everyone will get one …”

She also revealed that he died from a cocaine and Fentanyl overdose and had a long history of substance abuse dating back to his teens.

Cicotte said in a subsequent post on her personal web page that she had received a message from someone who read her words and was going to rehab.

“Hate the disease” she wrote. “Love the addict,” wrote she.
