Well this takes the cake..husband stealing my pain meds...

What to do with a passive /aggressive that is now stealing my pain medication? As if being in pain isn't enough,I just discovered my husband has been taking my pain meds....so now I will run out before my refill date. And you all know what that will be like. Unbelievable,well not really,having come to the realization(by direction of my therapist) that my husband is both passive/aggressive and narcissistic,this is just one more thing.
I've had a cervical headache for 5 days.....went to take a painkiller and found the bottle in a different location,so I counted them,I am 3 days short.....lovely...what a guy.....I just had to vent...Sagehen

Hi Sagehen

Well, that does take the cake, so to speak. I guess it's time for you to get a lockbox and keep the key with you or very well hidden.

Sorry to hear about this - this particular type of situation really bugs the you-know-what outta me!

Hi Sagehen

That's really shocking to hear. I'm sorry now you'll be short on your pain meds and how your husband can't understand why you need your meds. I asked my Pain Management Dr. to talk with my husband about chronic pain and how it's necessary to take meds. I would ask your PM Dr. to see him. Take care. Charry

dealt with this recently in uni

have to get a safe with a lock/key that only you have access or know the number to, and one he won't guess. Being at university, I lost track of how many ex boyfriends found my pain medication (or roomies in the dorm or their friends on the floor) who found a way to swipe my supply clean. I would then honestly approach my doctor at the time and let them know what was up, but I had to sign a contract saying I would from that moment forth get a safe for my medication, and no longer would they refill any missing medication, because that to them=drug seeking behavior, and once you're in that category, it takes a journey through hell and high water to scratch off that label. Not suggesting anything medical here, just check out local pharmacies, and see what they offer, I even went out of my way once, and paid for a safety deposit box, and I never had a problem the rest of the year at that school, except of course, my roomies, my exs and their buddies curious about "all that medication you used to be on...ummm..like...are you off it now or something" I of course said yes, just to throw them further from the scent. The safety deposit box kept my main supply of meds, scripts and notes from doctors, plus i had a tiny lockable key box for doses per day, and emergencies. It is a SERIOUS PAIN in the you know what, but if it's complicated because it's a situation you can't just throw in his or anyones face, my route was just another option if you haven't found one. Good luck darlin, and pm me if you want to chat:)

husband stealing my meds

This is one of the reasons for my divorce. Not only was he stealing my meds but buying whatever he could to get high. He could go out and spend his whole paycheck on meds. I put him through rehab and he still couldn't handle me having pain meds and went back to his old ways. I did go buy a small safe after I found out he was stealing my meds. But he couldn't handle knowing meds were in the house and me having to take them to ease my pain. I couldn't live like that anymore and was just tired of the whole battle. Good Luck!

This is really sad. he has no regard for you at all. I can imagine your peace of mind in all areas is now gone.

Wow what a great guy!! I

Wow what a great guy!! I hope you make it through the month without severe pain. If your PM is like mine, they will not replace scripts for lost or stolen meds. I was advised on my first visit to keep my meds low profile and tell no one what I take and to keep them under lock and key. My FNP said medication theft is big business in my area. I haven't taken that last step yet. I probably should.
