I recently broke up...again with my exboyfriend....he's retired, with several joint replacements. He lives life in constant pain. I've told him in the past that his use of his pain killer causes horrible mood swings. Sometimes he can be very mean and snappy. This causes me to have outburst...and the breakup begins. I have no desire to get back together with him...but I feel guilty that Ive turned my back on a friend. He has alienated himself from his family. His only friends are also using...you guessed it..Oxy or other pain pills. I'm not sure but I think they trade them off to one another. He is almost 60 and I am very worried about his health.
