new hubby's pill-popping, MJ, alcohol and Viagra

Posted by retrojen on July 21, 2004, at 12:49:36

Well, I spoke with him about it last night, after waiting patiently through dinner and discussing with him if it's OK for me to confide in him and bring up sensitive issues.

Bottom line is that he lied and continues to lie about most of it. Of course, he feels his privacy is violated. But, he admitted that he told me to get insurance quotes- which necessitated I find out what his insurance is, which was in the same file as the receipts.

He insists that the Ativan use is in the distant past. I know differently. His receipts show he has refilled six times since the beginning of the year. The viagra and cialis he claimed was properly prescribed by a urologist, when recepits clearly show his primary dr. prescribed both Viagra and cialis meds.

I became angry at the Dr. and said that we should go in there together and discuss how she is going to responsibly refer him to qualified people and NOT prescribe to him anymore. He refused, saying I wasn't his mother or psychologist.

We're at a standoff. He admits to having an open prescription for Ativan for going on three years. He denies recent use, but there's proof he's been refilling and refilling excessively up until late June. He showed me a bottle with maybe 60 pills. Then what happened to the other 180 pills? I asked him to throw all of them away right then. He refused.

He said the receipts go back two and three years. They are all from 2004. I told him to go check his records and we can talk today.

He denied any mental health issues except sleep disturbance. In the same file was a diagnosis for Bipolar II. Maybe the dr. told him, maybe not.
He mentioned divorce and if he doesn't come clean, I'm going to have to take him up on it.

What I can't figure out is if he's covering up mental health or substance use problems. He's lying big time, but I don't know if this addicted behavior or shame for having a mental health diagnosis.
