How to hide my meds...from my addicted husband
How to hide my prescription meds from my addicted husband...
I have spent years trying to hide my medicines. It is a brutal awful cycle. A couple of years ago we bought safes like to put jewelry and valuables in. He broke into the lock. Then I got another one and it had a number code and backup lock. HE broke into that one. Each time breaking the safe.
NO matter when I hide it in the house he finds it and steals it. HE apologizes and feels bad. HA. Don't buy it at all. He's also bipolar and is adjusting his meds for that and for the first time in his life admitting that he does have that illness. He's still not sure if the bipolar causes the addiction or if he is an addict to. He is an addict. Even if it's because of bipolar, I have to find a way so that I can have my necessary meds and not have to play the 24/7 game of hide and seek with a grown man. I"m to tired of it.
I had the worst flu of my life Saturday morning as did my youngest daughter. We were a mess of puke, pain and sleep. My husband was taking good care of us. Near the evening as I began to feel a little better I noticed my pill bottle was not where it should be. Then when it did "pop" up many were missing. In the middle of the night I went looking for them. In his clean socks I found over 20 pain pills and a couple in his jeans back pocket. I could tell in my ill fog with the flu that he seemed doped up.
He apologized in the morning as soon as he realized I had found his supply. He said he was manic and guessed the mania really does it to him. I want him to own up to it, but even this was progress for him, although it meant nothing to me.
I don't know what to do. There must be some way to lock them up within the home. Someway?
