After a few bad incidents, I learned to keep my mouth shut
Only my closest family/friends know about this but I still dont talk to most of them about it, only a few. They cant understand.
Ok, here's the story that brought me to the point of keeping my mouth shut~
We were at a party at our 'good friend's' house. After my 'friend' had a few drinks, she blurted out of nowhere, in front of everyone. 'So, you're a drug addict now huh?' My other 'friend' nodded her head and said 'yup, she sure is!' They went on to discuss my 'drug addiction' and wouldnt let me get a word in edgewise to defend myself. I walked away, towards my truck to go home, sad that my friends werent what I thought they were. There were a group of other 'friends' hanging out near my truck. As soon as I walked up, a 'friend' loudly asked the group if anyone had a pain pill because his wife just called and said she had a migraine. Ya, right.
So, I know it'd be pretty hard to hide this from a roomate, but, I would stop telling everyone, never mention your pain and the pills again and let them assume you're all better now. Then find a friend or two that is sympathetic and kind that can be your support system in this.
