yeah, I really beleive she was in severe pain, you can by looking at her, but she was abusing the prescript
ions period. Passing out on the floor is just a sign of way too much meds, I guess I could be wrong, I sure hope not. I know alot of people who have pain and take narcotics that I have yet to find any of them on the floor (except for a neighbor who had surgery, and only took one lortab and passed out and had to be rushed to he hospital, who's daughter found him on the kitchen floor). But in the past 7 years I've taken narcotics, I have never woke up on any floor, especially not in my tacobell dinner. But I am glad they didnt send her to a rehab center for drug addicts, but a place to help manage her pain better, which last I heard she didnt do well, but I didnt watch the one last night to see if there was an update. But maybe alot of the overmedicating was cause of the fact ehr family treated her really badly, and she was trying to numb the "emotional pain" that they where causing her. Because if my family treated me that badly, especailly when her mom hung up the phone on her when she sister gave birth, I would also be depressed and very angry. But I really hope she is doing better, she deserves it, nobody in pain deserves to be treated like garbage, I really bet if her family supported her alot more, she wouldnt do those things again and actually get the proper treatment.
