Added 27 Dec 2011:
One more question, is this a sign of med abuse, anger, hyper ness , shortness, mood swings, with drawled from family, weight loss, ignoring family, absorbed on the iPhone or iPad and locking the car or other safes from family and goes in it every morning and night? And then attack me with accusations? Am I losing my mind or is he sick?
You do know the answer, of course he is abusing these medications! Try to talk to him, get him to see an addiction counselor. There is a medication called Suboxone, and it stops the horrible withdrawals from any opiate pain medication (like OxyContin, vicodin), one must taper off Suboxone slowly. Perhaps if he gets help now he can stave off ruining his life completely. I feel for you, you may need counseling yourself, it sure couldn't hurt. Counseling may teach you why you are putting up with his bullsh*t.
Dear Ipola... yes, I agree w/ sweetie... you DO know the answer. I would approach him alone, without the girls around. Approach him n a loving and concerned manner. Tell him that you would like to help him even though he and you ( in some fashion) are both n denial... I think that this is the very best way to approach him with the pills stash that u have found. Offer him help either by tapering via the Thomas Recipe, or by getting a sub doc and doing the WD and healing tool with suboxone and addiction counseling (the other tool) for both of you to understand so that your hubby can now, finally get the help that he needs, and so that you can move toward a positive setting for tour teenage girls... good luck. You will be in my prayers...
I agree with all of this advise. The only thing I want to add is to wait until he's in one of his 'lovey dovey' moods to talk to him about the pills. He may still get mad and deny it but it would be better than him going into a rage and possibly hurting you. This is very scary and NOT the norm. You should not have to live this way. It's horrible!! Save some money if you can for emergencies. Have a plan and stick to it. Do you have other family that can help you?
