PA & Scarred, I did not mean for this thread to be mistaken for an addiction, only trying to help some people realize how cautious they need to be with their medications & aware of a growing threat that is becoming popular with the younger crowd. I hope no one has to deal with, but some people need to be aware of just incase.
Karen, I am sorry that this (your brother) has happened to you. I don't know what I would ever do in that situation. It's almost hard to believe that someone would leave a pill in the floor like that- especially with young children. Thats a recipe for disaster. Hopefully nothing bad will ever happen. But kudos to you for being aware & finding that medication! I have small dogs & I am always so scared when I drop a pill. I always find them, but I have made it a habit to
open my pills over my bed now (just a wider area) incase I do drop one, my bed will catch it. I live in a large city & pills are the biggest threat here, there is always something on the news about
a robbery of a pharmacy or someone caught selling pills or hosting a "pharm party". Most of the local pharmacies have guards outside & only certain ones carry the heavy narcotics. Sad, huh? I hope it dosen't come to that where you live. I used to live in a small town & I know how gossip goes: everybody knows everyone else's business...... I hope nothing comes of your home. I know I feel that robbers could take all my belongings, just leave my meds alone! Its so sad..... You know back to your neighbor, you probably helped save a life that day. I think what you did was very commendable. I'm glad you were there..... it could have been another bad story about
pain medication & even worse a small child could have had a severe reaction to that medication... or worse. Great job Karen!!!
