Today marks one year since Helanna died from a fentanyl overdose so her interview is being released again to honor her memory.

Some of the questions I asked: · What was it like when I looked to her to be ok to make me feel better instead of me being stable for her? · What else did I do that wasn’t helpful to her? · What did I do that was helpful to her? · Is there anything I could have done differently to help her not struggle with addiction? · What did she get out of using substances? · What made her want to get sober? · What has relapsing taught her? · What makes her feel supported in sobriety? I learned a few new things and had some realizations while listening to her insight and I ended up sharing some things I've never shared before.
