There are allot of good people, and good advice....I would contact the Dr, your bishop ( who can help get free thearpy) Try putting them under your dresser in the corner, they are harder to see.....
I second what LT just said......get to your Bishop.....he can help.....trust me!!!

We have been married 28 years, my husband is a High Priest, we have raised a beautiful family and I would never have imagined this could have happened to us. I am disabled and use several prescription drugs to manage pain and other conditions. My husband has been stealing my pain medicines.
When I caught him and confronted him and asked him to get help he went to the doctor and got his own prescription for Vicodin, he said his back hurt. He will take a 30 day supply in just a few days then go right back to searching the house for my medicine to steal. He lies to me about how much Vicodin he takes, he makes promises that he will never take my medicine again. He sees what happens to me when I run out of medicine early because he took so much and I am in agony for days until I can refill my medicine again, and yet he is right back to taking my medicine again.
I am sick of constantly hiding my medicine so he can not find it and then I get up to go to the bathroom and come back and find him going through my medicine trying to find the morphine.
I love and respect my husband. He is the head of our household and my priesthood leader, but I am also so disappointed in him and I feel betrayed by the lack of compassion he has for me that he would see me suffer so much and still steal the medicine I need. I feel betrayed by his lack of honesty and I don't know what to do. He refuses to go to counseling.
I need your advice.
If he is addicted, then the drug is doing his thinking for him. You cite a lack of compassion, but if he is addicted, then compassion is the farthest thing from his drug-addled mind. You must get him help!!! He can't buck this gorilla off, it will stay on his back until it kills him. Tell your Bishop, your doctor, your children, whoever you can get to help you get this taken care of. He will lose this battle without help. Your lives will be so much better when this is taken care of.
