My best friend, who has known me for 9 years now, knows about all of my "issues," which is to say aspergers, anxiety, depression, adhd tendencies, insomnia, hiatal hernia, migraines, scoliosis (although, I (and my doctors) don't believe that to be the reason for my constant severe upper back pain), psoriasis, etc. She's been my shoulder to cry on when I can't deal with the pain and my ear to talk to when I can't understand the world.

But recently, she referred to me as a drug addict and that I should get help. I am prescribed 9 different medications. From Anti-depressant/anxiety to pain meds to ultra vitamin pills and psoriosis cream. Does she know exactly what I take? No. She may see me take a pill... but for all she knows, it could be tylenol, or a OTC vitamin. She came over one evening after a very physically and emotionally exhausting day for me to ask for some help on a project she was working on. Well, I kept nodding off because I was exhausted from the day. I wasn't "drugged up," but she claimed she was "worried for me" and only "wanted to help," meaning that I should get help, and by the way she was exchanging glances with my husband, I could tell he was in on it too, which really pissed me off, because he sees me every day and knows the hell I go through. Not to mention I can't be a drug addict and be a responsible mom at the same time. If I were sleeping my days away or "high" all the time or whatever, he would definitely know about it.

So, given that, how would you react to that? I'm angry, hurt and just overall beaten that the 2 closest people to me would even think this of me. Help?

Sorry your going through this Kel. The only suggestion I have, since your husband is involved, is to make up your pill box in front of him, and have him bring the bottles to work, this way you can prove to him you don't have an issue.
