My name's Jill. My boyfriend has been committed to a group home due to his dependency on prescription painkillers and tranquilizers. He has type I diabetes, j tubes, depression, and says he has sciatica. He doesn't do anything to help himself in the group home; he sits in his room, plays his guitar, listens to depressing music, and messes around on the computer. I am so psychologically dependent on him, I actually have panic attacks if I don't talk to him regularly -- which I always do, but I freak out if I he hasn't contactd me by a certain time. I also give him my anti-anxiety and sleeping pills when I see him. I have 9 different meds of my own, and old ones with refills I give to him. He's very handsome, intelligent and kind. I have never been in a relationship with anyone like him, and I'm obsessed with him, according to my therapist. I realize now I haven't been caring for him, I've been enabling him. I really want to help him, but I don't know where to start. Please, give me some ideas, advice.
