I am new here. I am a mother of 2 and have been married for 24 years. I went through treatment for opioid addiction back in 2013. I had neck surgery to replace 3 discs and doctor kept prescribing the meds and eventually I ended up in rehab for a month. Worked for a little while then I had knee surgery in 2014, then shoulder surgery in 2015. I didn’t tell the doctor about my past so I would not have to be in pain. He only prescribed them for a short amount of time. So, I was off them completely. Now, back in 2015, my husband had to stop working due to spinal issues. He has had 2 back surgeries and he still has many issues. Occasionally I would ask him for some pills and he would say no but I would get mad so he would give in. Sometimes I would sneak them from him and from other places. He now refuses to give them to me and keeps them locked up. I have a lot of arthritis and starting to have back pain. I hate pain and I just love that they take my pain away. In a way, I am angry that he can take them but I can’t. I am pissed that I may just have to live with pain the rest of my life or just sneak somehow. Ok, that’s my story and I was just wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation.
