While we are all very different, I can understand both your positions. I have seen a friend get lost into the bowels of addiction from pain pills, and he refused to see it. It is such a tough call.
She is and we've had long talks but no other meds work to even knock the pain. This last fight she basically called me a druggie and was very cruel with her words. This was my BFF of 7yrs. It's a tough call bc I want to be pain free but not lose my BFF. As of now its been a month since we spoke.
Blessings to you...
