Enabler for years to a bipolar turned addict, my husband
I came mainly took look for stories I could read about how to work on my problem. My husband of 7 years has finally admitted he's an addict to pain pills and whatever although he does not take it regularly because he can't get it.
I have severe medical conditions and have prescription pain meds I need. He has stolen then, broke into safes I have bought, 2. Because he is bipolar and used to be abusive I know he will do whatever it takes to get what he wants.
I slowly became an enabler so that I would not get hurt, or so that, or so that...there are a million bad excuses. I am so tired of the game. He stole so much from me that he has left me in crippling pain for up to 2 weeks because he stole that much (pain meds). He thought I should just call my Dr for more.
Anyhow. I will share more later. I have to go. I look forward to connecting with others and learning how to deal with the newness of stepping out of denial and fear and have been seeking group and one on one therapy help. No more!
