I Lost My Wife to a Prescription Drug
Having been married just less than 2 years, I felt that I was married to the most precious woman in the world, and I was. After a year into the marriage my wife developed a pain in her lower back and was forced to have surgery for a bulging disc. Prior to her scheduled date a friend of hers began slipping her oxycontin, oxycodone, and percocet without my knowledge. Had I known this I probably wouldn't have thought much of it as I was so naive and failed to realize that one could become addicted to prescription medications. Soon after surgery she began to recieve prescription oxycodone and I noticed a change in her behavior. Her personality was not the same. She began to exhibit all the major symptoms of an addict and we soon we fell apart. I was blamed for everything that went wrong in our marriage. I tried my best to restore what we once had but the pill was her priority. I wanted an intervention but when I confronted her she tossed me out like a piece of trash. My story is probably not the only one of it's kind so I would like to hear from you.
