I am new to the site my story is a littlelong and complicated. I have dealth with depression on & off for 5yrs or more, treated once but has came back.  I quit my outside job 2 1/2 yrs ago to babysit my grandson fulltime which I enjoy greatly. Last week there was an incidence in my family that really upset me, I had a substance abuse problem years ago. One f my family members is hooked on RX drugs my husband andwent to  their house for a short amount of time, we were together the wholetime my husband and I now some of her pills are missing part of my family believe that I took them and part doesn't, forth recordI did not I do not want walk that road again, it's notlike I haven't been around the pills befor because i have been to their house many times. At the present time I am not keeping my grandson everyday, also have went back on meds for depression but still having som crying spells. It's hard not to be sad when I don't see him every day, HELP I don't know what to do.

First of all, Rls, welcome to Healing Well.  There are many wonderful people here.  And they do not judge you, so you have come to the greatest place.  I know that you will be glad that you have come here.

Secondly, Take a deep breath and relax.  I have to tell you that it is not the end of the world.  Evidently somebody in the family has made a mistake.  We are not perfect, and if you know that in your heart that you didn't take the pills, that is all you can do.  It might take some time for the family to get over this and see that you are innocent.  Maybe somebody miscounted.  But either way you have to be patient and have faith that the truth will come out. 

I guess that is a part of substance abuse, when the family knows and something comes up, they look to you first because of your past history.  Like I say it may take time, but it will come out and all will be forgiven.  I know that it hurts.  But just take it with a grain of salt and wait for the outcome.  I am sorry about the babysitting.  It is sad that it had to come to this.  Maybe if you talk to them you can convince them that you didn't do it.  I am glad that not everybody thinks that you did it.  I really hope that this can work out for you.  You sound like such a nice and kind person.  You don't deserve to be blamed for something that you didn't do.  I really wish you luck with this situation.

Anyway, keep posting and let us know how things are going, you have joined in with a wonderful group of people and I think we can at least help you to feel better.

Many hugs,  Karen

Hi there and Welcome to HealingWell,

Like Karen I want to welcome you into our family. We all look after, help and support each other here and I hope that you find the support you are looking for here.

I think Karen has pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one. As long as you know that you didnt take them, that is all you can really do until your family realise that they have made a mistake. I hope that this works itself out and that you can return to babysitting your grandson. Is there some kind of test you can have done to prove whether the pills are in your blood?


Everyone has a guardian angel. They help pick you up when you fall, comfort you through your times of need and help you appreciate the times when things are going well.

I too wanted to welcome you to the forum so glad that you found us.

Darren and Karen have given you great advice...

How long have you been on your current meds? If you just started taking them that might be why you are not feeling the effects yet,they do take 4-6 weeks to take full effect...
If you have been on them longer then you might need to talk to your doctor and let them know..
