we live in a world where people abuse and are deceptive about this issue and I am so sorry that you and your family are having to cope with a situation such as this. I have lived with chronic pain for several years but I made the choice to be honest in dealing with family that loves me and to also consider the damage that I could cause by not making appropriate choices, I had a friend who was addicted to almost every street drug and Rx medication that you could think of, she lost her job, her husband left her and she lost privilages to see her children, I had never disclosed to her that I was on pain medication but one morning at 3 a.m. she knocked at my door asking for money for gasoline I did not loan her or give her the money I would not tell you to leave your husband instead I think what has to happen is that you have to wake him up (if it's at all possible) and let him know that you are not going to assist him in his behavior, You need to tell him that you don't believe him and that you no longer trust him, it may take finding out just how much you mean to him by giving him the truth that you will assist him getting help but that you are not going to enable him to continue on the path that he is on, One thing is for sure the more he takes the more he wants, and sometimes I wonder if the person isn;t living in such a medicated haze that they reach the point that they can't see the forrest for the tree's. It is my sincere hope that I have encouraged you in some way, He needs love, strength and support but he needs to know that you don't believe this mess and that you are worn out with his lies and abuse. there are many caring compassionate people on this site these are just my thoughts and I might add this It makes me very angry to think about someone who knowlingly abuses prescription medications people like him make life difficult for people who are suffering from chronic pain, pain management doctors see this on a regularly basis and those who have managed to weed drug seekers out are always suspicious and each time a legitimate patient goes in needing a med or a stronger dose then the doctor has in the back of his.her mind is it possible that this patient could be like prrevious addicts that I have seen, I don't say this to further hurt your feelings I think it's something that your husband needs to hear and to have to think about. there are programs like Narcotics anomoyous and also programs to help assist you in dealing with a husband that is addicted and how to better help you deal with this in a positive way. It is again my sincere hope that he does get help and that things turn around for you. We are always glad to support/listen or just give an encouraging word if we can be of any further help to you please do not hesitate.
