Oh, wow...so she isn't crazy. THAT's pathetic and scary. When I was a senior I ran with people of quesitonable character....because they were up front and not back stabbers. Back in that time period people were classed. All my family are some form of medical - radiologist, chiro, optometrist, GP's, nurses, etc. I'm the black sheep, lol.But I found people in my 'class' were backstabbers. These people were not. But they did all kinds of drugs. Mainly he 60' kind, not sure if meth was one, don't think so. But lots of grass, lo.I have never touched an illegal drug in my life because my family members had drug me to the rehabs so that I could see what happens.But it's scary to think that I could have been addicted had they done that. THANKS.

You're welcome. Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
