Lisa was loved by many. Deep down inside she struggled with self love and she believed that she was not understood or loved. She would numb her feelings with substance use. She needed drugs to feel normal or happy. As time elapsed, she was totally addicted to uppers. This started affecting her work and relationship with friends and family. She made a decision to fight against this disease. But it became a cycle. Affected with shame and stigma, her addiction became stronger than her. But never did she think she would leave this earth. God saw her struggles and called her home. More than 100 friends attended her passing ceremony: Missed forever by her mommy, sister, brother, and niece. She would light up any room with her smile and positive energy.
