just picked up sons girlfriend and got her home. she is on lots of meds right now and said she has no cravings at all. but she has become so good at lying to me that i cannot trust her anymore. she said now she cannot drink grapefruit juice, eat pickles or olives or have anything that has acid in it. what the heck is going on. she said all these things have alcohol in them and she would start drinking,excuse me for being so stupid here, but i have never heard of this. is this all true or not. they took her off her lithium and she is on a high dose of antabuse and lamictal for sleeping. she also has to have a urine test done every week, but she says she does not do any street drugs at all. can someone help me out here, i am at a loss again as usual. i am really losing it here with this girl. she is so much a part of our family that i cant kick her out of it, i am raising her son, my grandson that is only 6 now. any help would be appreciated. she is not going for long term but said she will attend AA. i do no that it is just a matter of time before she drinks again, she will even drink cough syrup if need be for the alcohol, she will drink it from a straw for quicker results and she will take any pill in the house with the liquor for the same reason. gee i sure hate to keep bothering you all here but you have been so helpful to me already, guess i will just have to look stuff up pretty quick on google and maybe i can find other stuff out. thank you again, judy

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
