Kuddos to you. That is your medication for your use, not your Mothers. Its her own fault she got caught let her deal w/her own ramifications from that. Using her alcohol as leverage to obtain medication from you is disgusting to say the least. Its people like her that have added to the problem of people getting the medication they truly need. She is just using the alcohol as an excuse. Sorry not wanting to hurt your feelings here but I feel very strongly about this sort of thing. This woman is way too old to be behaving like this. Tell your mother if she has issues to get some mental help.
If you are going to her home for holidays, please, please, the minute she starts her rant, gather your little ones up and get them out of her house immediately. They do not need to be exposed to behavior like that. Believe me, they will remember it the rest of their lives too. Do not let this person control you or ruin your holidays or your childrens.
Has your mother used the alcohol in the past issue to obtain medication from other people? Stick to your guns honey, but do not let her verbally abuse you or your children. Hugs, Susie
