I haven't really been on here in a while, so here is an update for you all.
Recently, someone I thought was my friend came over to use the phone because her power was shut off. My husband and I have never had a reason not to trust her, so we went outside to smoke. Later, I was taking a pain pill, and I thought I looked a little low, but the bottle is big, so I thought it just looked like I was low. A few days later, I was called into my doctor's office for a random drug test and pill count. I was forty short. I know that I was missing a few because I had taken a few more on some days when I was in a lot of pain, but I realized that the person I thought was my friend had stolen my pills. Now, I am out of pain pills. I went to my doctor and told him what happened, but he couldn't give me my regular pills, so he gave me Darvon instead. It doesn't do anything at all, except make me feel kind of sluggish. So I am kind of screwed until the 26th.
My sister and I are still not speaking, and I have to see her today at my mom's for her Mother's Day dinner. I am a little worried that my sister my try to start something. I just want to have a good day. It hasn't really been one so far because I woke up feeling like my entire body was bruised.
I found out that my husband has scoliosis. That is why he has a lot of back pain. He had some pain pills too, but his were stolen as well. It makes me so angry. But, anyways.
I am sure there is more that has been going on, but I am having a major fog moment right now, so I can't really remember. Anyways. That is a little update for you all. I have really missed everyone here.

I'm sorry that has happened.  I'd keep my meds under lock and key from now on.  It's a shame  you can't trust some people.
 
You need to try to ignore your sister if she tries to start something.  You don't want to ruin things for your Mom and you would feel even worse.  If she does start, just ignore her.  Instead of hearing what she is saying, just repeat in  your head, "Not a clue."  See if that helps.  But, I wouldn't respond to her or just say that it isn't open for discussion and walk away.  You want to be the one in control...not her.
 
I was at a dinner party last night and a friend of mine started in about my hearing and implied that I could lose my license because of my hearing.  She talked about it twice and quite loudly, too.  The first time she mentioned this to me was over a month ago.  She knew it upset me then.  BUT, I did research and there is no way I would lose my license because of my hearing.  I might have to put an extra mirror on my car.  But, she knew that topic upset me the first time and she did it again...twice...last night.  I let her dig a hole for herself.  She will look might dumb when people realize she doesn't know what she is talking about.  I just sat there, with a little upturn to my lips, and stared at her.  I kept thinking..."What a fool"!  It didn't bother me at all this time!  So, give it a try.
 
Have a wonderful day with your Mom.

Hi Sassy...unfortunatley, my brother was a drug addict(opitates) and was eventually put on methadone.  Anyway, when he would visit he would take ANYTHING that he could find in our medicine cabinet...even my son's asthma medication.  One time he took something without my knowledge and about two hours later came screaming out of the bathroom...his pee was black!  He had swallowed a bunch of pills I had to take for a kidney/bladder scan with that black dye in them.  It got so whenever he came for a visit we had to take everything about of the medicine cabinet.  Sadly, he died of Hep C last year.

Hope you can work through the pain...I have been there!

Sassy,

I'm sorry this is happening to you and your hubby. But if you don't take some action it's going to keep happening. Call the police! It's illegal to steal and especially schedule 11 medication. Now you have red flags all over your chart because of this 'friend'. The only way it will get erased is if you file a police report. Same with your hubby.

Second, do as others have said and get a lock box...and USE IT! I just bought 2...one that locks and one that's kid proof. I have never had any meds stolen but I sure don't want any of the little grandkids who are always around getting into any of the medications I take and possibly dying!

Finally...make new friends! Don't tell anyone you even have these medications. If they don't know about them they are less likely to go looking. I keep mine to myself. I can't take a chance on anything happening to my relationship with my doctor.

Get on the phone and report these thieves,

My husband and I are looking into getting a lock box. The person I spoke about is never allowed in our house again. And, I went back to my old doctor. He really does understand me. I don't care if he is out of the way...I would rather see him. He totally understood what happened. He knows me, and he knows that I would never short myself like that, so he believes me. He just couldn't give me any tabs. So, he gave me Darvon instead, but all it does is make me feel sluggish. I can't wait until the 26th when I go back to the doctor and get my meds again. I am never leaving anyone alone in my house with my pills.
Yesterday actually went really well. My sister and I are speaking again, and she even wants me to come over to her house with my son so that our boys can play. She got me flowers and a really hilarious card. It was really sweet. So, everything went well yesterday. Which I am very thankful for of course.
Sometimes, all this is just really hard. I am trying to make it through the pain without my meds, but it is really really hard. I just don't know what I can do about it. I feel very discouraged.

You are doing a good job, Tiki, so give yourself a pat on the back.  Also, don't be counting the days until you can get the meds.  Count the days  you have been able to manage without them.  That will give you another pat on the back!  Maybe, by the time the 26th rolls around, you won't need as much medication.  Who knows?  That would be great, wouldn't it!

I called the doctor's office, and I have an appointment with a different doctor on Thursday. Keep me in your prayers that it goes well.

Tiki- I do hope things go well this Thursday for you. What a bad thing that you had your pills stolen. And a what a good thing that it went well with you and your sister!

I am really glad that things with my sister are better. I hate animosity, and I hate conflict and confrontations. So, I am happy that things are going better there. I just pray that things go well on Thursday. I am completely miserable.
