Ok, so i have mentioned before, my cousin/roommate... has the same issues as i do, with back pain.
Since i moved in, i noticed she has been very very depressed. And the last few days coming home from work, she has been almost, well, drunk.
She told me yesterday that she had taken 3 somas. As she was talking to me i noticed she was slurring words, and her eyes rolling up in her head.
So today she had me pick up her re-fill. When i got home from work tonight, i told her, please "no more taking 3 soma's"
About 20 minutes later, she was at the kitchen table. she had asked me to spend time with her. So i made us a cup of coffee, started a movie and called her from the kitchen table to come watch with me. She stood up, knocked over the cup of coffee which flew across the room. She ran to grab towels, but fell over to get them off the floor. She was slamming into walls, and falling all over the place (and almost into the glass shelves in our dining room. She made it to her room and fell flat on her face. I helped her into the living room... where she immediately proceeded to collapse on the couch and pass out.
Upset and scared, i went to her room and counted her medication. She had taken 7 (SEVEN) soma's.
I just don't know what to do!!!! She is on a major path of self destruction. I know how depressed she has been, and she is self medicating at DANGEROUS levels.
I called her mom. Discussed locking her med's up, and distributing them accordingly. But she is an adult. Not my place. Her mother said she would come by tomorrow, and talk to her. We both agreed that its not a good idea for me to get in the middle. My cousin is very touchy about certain things... and where i am living with her now, just not a good idea. My aunt said maybe she might even take control of her meds and making her drive over then when she needs them. but then changed her mind saying "she is an adult"
Im not quite at the end of my rope here, but really waiting for the end of my rope would be the WRONG time to do something about this...
