Unhappy I'm so scared!!!

I just found out that my mom has a prolapsed heart valve. She has been using crystal meth for years now and It's killing her slowly. I have no idea on what to do. Is there anyway to help her?

Hello Shorty7188,
Could you tell me please what crystal meth is? I am in Australia and have not heard of it.
Thankyou, Excelsoir

Speed lol

and to answer the dudes question first your mom needs to check into a rehab facilaty. Second she needs to have a strong support group. Then she needs to change her diet to pick up the calcium and vietamin a&b she's lost.

She will never recover medicaly but mentaly it gets better IF you give her time to adjust

I am recovering from a 5 year Cranq addiction and have been clean 4 years , after the first 2 I don't even think of shooting up anymore.

My mom refuses to seek treatment. I've been trying to get her to for quite a few years. I talked to her a little while ago (she lives 4 hours away) and she can't remember much of anything anymore.

Re: I'm so scared!!!

Thanks John23. I do know what speed is anyway. Also your answer just about covers the question. I just hope Shorty, that somehow your mother can be persuaded to seek and accept treatment. If there is any way you can make her think it is HER idea (rehab. and then surgical intervention) work on this tactic. I empathize with your very difficult situation, and wish you and your mother the best.
Regards, Barry
