And then one evening you’re sobbing in a fetal position and you realize you’re mentally working out what to do when your son dies. Not if — when. Maybe overdose, maybe suicide. Each time he takes a step forward he seems to fall faster and harder back into the dark. The swirling chaos says to me, “Inevitability. He is already gone.”
