Hi, my husband is taking oxycontin not from the dr. he just gets them I think he also uses cocaine off and on. I never really know when he is on anything or if he just gets over tired. Some days he stays awake for 2-3 days then when he goes to sleep he sleeps for 2-3 days. When he wakes up he is either really miserable or depressed. I get so angry be because I do understand that this is a sickness but i have just lost my brother in August and my mother in December. I feel he is selfish, My children and Myself have asked him to get help and he says he is working on it but how do I learn to live in the same house and not let his problems be mine. I am not saying this to be mean but I have nothing left to give right now. We have been married for 32 years and I have always been the caregiver to everyone. Since I lost my brother and mom I feel empty like I don't have anything left in me to give. Please help me to understand so I can try to get myself back and possible help him.

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...
