Carded for Sudafed
Last night I went to our local Walgreens to purchase some "behind the counter" Sudafed for my daughter who is an "recovering" ex meth user. I was very happy to supply them with my driver's license knowing that our state has placed a law into place to try and stop methamphetamine production.
I know there are other ways to get around this hurdle for the meth suppliers but it won't be through this door anymore.
I believe our country has a very long way to go yet to eradicate this drug from our doorsteps, IF ever.
I was also a little nervous giving this medication to my daughter. I felt a twinge of fear handing this over to her knowing the doctor prescribed this for her, but also wondering how this would affect her. Would it send her back into that world of deception and death? I did not know. Luckily she is in group therapy and takes random UAs and is very conscientious now as to what she puts into her body.
I spoke with her today and spent time with her. We discussed how it made her feel and she did not like the anxiety she woke up with at 3 am. We will monitor and she will use it sparingly.
She IS on the road to recovery and doing very very well. I am very proud of her yet I know that this is an addiction and she is well aware of who to stay away from, what situations to stay out of and that she needs to constantly renew her mind to focus on other things that are more important. YEAH for recovery!
