Ted and I have had a rough past. We always fought. I have known him since I was 16 or 17 and I am now 20.
I always knew he was into drugs. At first, I didn't really care. But as time went on, I fell in love with him.
Ted died on April 3, 2009 from a drug overdose. A few days before his death he called me wanting some hydrocodone. He was willing to buy them and I was so stupid. I sold them to him because I needed money. I didn't know what was going to happen.
Since Ted's death, I've been living with an overwhelming guilt about what happened. I miss him so much. I am partnering up with The Partnership for a Drug Free America to make sure no one has to go through this.
