I have been a sibling of two drug addicts for the past 3-5 years. I am trying to understand how one child (me) can turn out the way I did, while the other two younger siblings turned out to be heroin and pain killer addicts. We were all raised in the same house, in the same way, belong to the same two parents, yet we are so different. I have graduated from college with a bachelors and masters degree, and work as a physician assistant. My brother went to college and only needs 3 credits to graduate, but his drug addiction has squashed his goal of being a college graduate. My sister barely graduated high school and got kicked out of college. She has been fired from several jobs, and will be fired from McDonald's since she hasn't been to work in 3 days due to being in jail. I feel so many emotions when it comes to them. I am mad at them, sad for them. I just wish they could see how much pain my parents, grandparents, and I feel because of their addiction and bad actions.
