I'm wondering how many of you have gotten physically sick from living with an addict. I'm currently trying to get help for my son who is out of jail on bond while raising two other active boys and working full time. I've been feeling very light headed lately, so I went to the doctor. My BiPolar (BP) was 160/115! I also have stomach issues that the doctor said could be pre-ulcer symptoms. I am at my ideal weight, run, eat healthy, and now need to take 5 different medications due to stress!! They aren't kidding when they say this is a "family disease". I am doing everything in my power to help my son get help for his addiction while enforcing tough love and making him face the consequences of his actions. I feel that I'm doing the right thing as a parent, but it's killing me physically. How do you manage to stay healthy and sane?
