I lost my son Brian, on 10/25. He was 48. Brian was injured by the prescription drug accutane when he was 23 years old. This medication was for acne, and he wanted to look good for job interviews after graduating from college. This drug damaged his liver, his digestive system and his immune system. He never fully recovered from this injury. He had two degrees, one in marketing, and one in biochemistry. He was brilliant. We were never able to get any compensation from the drug company. He never got to realize his potential. Mainstream medicine totally failed him. We enlisted functional and alternative medicine, until the family,s money was exhausted. He did not absorb nutrients very well, so his physical and mental health continued to decline. He self medicated with red wine, and eventually he developed cirrhosis which ultimately took his life.
I am so sad that his life was so derailed, and that I could not fix it. I don’t know how to cope with this loss after fighting this battle with him for 25 years. Brian was one of 4 sons.

I’m not sure if it shows my genetic predisposition to...
