I'm at the start of a process I never in my life thought I would experience, having finally met and married my special person they have turned into someone I don't really recognise any more, due to a Tramadol dependency. He has suffered from bi-polar all his adult life, he is now 41, I thought I could cope with that but I have recently discovered that when times are bad for him he seeks solace in a bottle or a packet. Currently he is taking 20 tramadol a day, I believe he is also snorting it possibly, goodness knows what else and where thus is headed. I feel out of control myself, I have tried softness, tough love and partial ultimatums but the problem with ultimatums is that you have to fulfill them, so I am stopping short of life changing ones. He has no love or interest for life, hobbies, people or health. I feel so, so sad, his brother thinks I am not being supportive enough. Anyone else experienced something similar?
