Following a challenging c-section gone wrong with one of her children, Heather picked up painkillers to cope.
She soon became addicted and started experimenting with other substances. She began sleeping with men for money. Her children went to stay with some of her family members.
It was towards the end of 2013 that Heather’s family simply couldn’t get a hold of her. She wasn’t returning their texts or their calls.
When she wasn’t doing so well, this kind of behavior was somewhat typical of her, but only for short amounts of time. As the days went by, her family became worried about where she was.
