What is fentanyl?

  • Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine and 50 times stronger than heroin.

‘I was just helping everyone and that helped keep me busy. But then there were times when I didn’t want them to see me cry,” she continued.

But he added: “My crying moment was in the shower, I just took it out in the shower.”

‘It’s hard and everyone heals differently. It really affected me, last year was bad in many ways. I’m glad it’s a new year, a new beginning.’

Audrina credited “therapy” and “going to church” with helping her heal.

“Now I’m just trying to be more positive about it,” she said. ‘It’s really about moving forward and trying to raise awareness and educate parents.

‘And we still celebrate her and tell stories about her. We still go to the cemetery and bring flowers all the time. We are not going to forget about her just because she is not here physically.”

The star also revealed how the tragic death affected her daughter, Kirra, seven, and said the youngster is now terrified Audrina will leave and “not come back” one day.

“Last year, when it happened, I just went with the flow, I didn’t care much about exercising or taking care of my health,” Audrina recalls.

“Since Sadie died, every time I leave… even when I drop Kira off at school, she’s like, ‘What if you don’t come back?'” he shared.

‘Every day, when I drop her off at school, (I have to give her) a kiss on the lips and on the head and a big hug; We have to do that every day and if we don’t, she cries at school. .’

He said his daughter “knew a little bit” about death because her pastor at the “private Christian school” she attends had talked about it in her class.

But she admitted Kirra still “had a lot of questions” after Sadie’s passing.

‘I was trying to be honest but vague, you know? I don’t want him to be afraid, but now he has this trauma of (he always wonders), what if you don’t come back?’ she revealed.

As she reflected on the death, Audrina explained that Sadie had met the person who sold her the intertwined pill on Snapchat.

“(These dealers) are like predators who take advantage of these high school kids and give them these menus (of different types of drugs),” he revealed. “It’s everywhere, I feel like that generation is being attacked.”

Audrina said she believes the problem comes from social media, adding: “Social media is making kids depressed or not feeling good enough with all the filters.”

‘It’s not entirely the fault of Snapchat or social media, it’s no one’s fault. This is how life is progressing right now.

“But no one has dealt with this before, so we don’t know who to blame or how to save our children or what to do to make changes.”

As for her advice to others, she recommended taking more time to “be a part of your children’s lives.”

Audrina credited “therapy” and “going to church” for helping her heal, adding, “I’m trying to be more positive about it.” It’s really about moving forward and trying to raise awareness.
