    Do you get the feeling of being alone or like life is passing you by since your diagnosis?

      I understand your feelings. I've not gotten into depression over it, but I have been sort of mad a t the world about it thinking about all of the things that I could be doing that I can't now.

      While I was going through treatment I felt my life was on hold but at the same time there was a purpose to what I was going tbrough. Like someone else said, that whole year was something of a blur. Now, two years out from treatment I still struggle to redefine what my life is, trying to reconcile what I went through with lingering debilitating side effects. As Greg said, sometimes I feel mad at the world. I have a punching bag. Highly recommend it!

      There's another thing to think about ..... perhaps a pharmacist has a problem and is taking a few from yours, a few from another, etc. I personally know of 2 nurses that would take meds that were issued for a patient. Most patients don't keep that close of a track in the hospital especially if they are very sick. I'd count them at the Pharmacy (inside, not drive through) and see what happens. I pray your Grandson isn't responsible.

      Lock them up! You can get a small lockbox that will keep most "honest" people out and probably will solve your problem. Anyone with a "problem" is going to just steal the whole box. But, they would also steal your whole bottle and not just try to get a few out of it.

      Do not store your pain med in the medicine cabinet. Find a safe, secret place. And do not tell anyone where it is. Sorry. This is for everyone's safety. Especially if it is potentially addictive or harmful if taken in a higher than prescribed dose.
