I'm sorry for the delay; I'm an apartment painter in a college town, and right now the students are playing musical chairs.
She gets her meds from medical doctors mostly but some come off the street. She's tried lots of different ones, but only Xanax makes her calm without upseting her stomach.
I spent MANY hours chatting --- strike that --- listening with her last night. She fears being misunderstood and judged harshly, refuses to try a pdoc, and has childhood (and adult) trauma.
I guess if it comes down to the line on divorce, she might relent enough to try a rehab, or see a pdoc, or atleast go to church. Hopefully, she'll get a job, settle into the routine, and just chill. I doubt it though; she believes that she has no problem.
Thanks for giving me some information to go on; perhaps I can use it to gently steer her toward the pdoc. Amazingly, I think Borderline sounds like the closest fit so far, with a possible side-order of manic-depression and a definate over-the-rda seving of addictions.
