I was in the city so I had made plans to attend a meeting sort of like Al Anon. It was a fairly large group and most of the people were young women (younger than my 59 lol). One young lady spoke of a whirlwind courtship and marriage after only knowing the groom for 3 months. She did not know of his drug use (both about late 20s or early 30s) and he had a good job, and both agreed for her to be a stay at home mom. They both wanted to start a family and after the baby was born he relapsed. She was crying, saying his family enables him and blames her, that he ODs (pill use) and she is just a nervous wreck. She actually said she was not going to call 911 any more, it was his problem and she wanted out of the marriage. She has no means of support, emotional or financial, and he came very close to losing his job. She was told that she may get into trouble by not calling for help if she was there when he OD. Can you imagine such pain and dispair that you would let the person die? Several talked about the problems the addicts caused from pain pill addiction. After the docs cut them off they start buying them on the streets. I knew it was a financial drain, but I didn't know about the violence and how easy it is to OD. I left feeling really down, most of them had just started with the counseling and I really felt so sorry for them having been there myself.
