Patient discussion about killer

Q. How do you handle someone who has fibromyalgia and addicted to pills? I have no way of 100 % proving that she has overdosed in the past but I know she has. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1993 and its gone down hill from there. I feel that she is unstable and will take drastic measures. Is there a way to have her committed for her own good?

A. i think that what she needs from you is support. getting over addiction will not happen by force, a decision must be made so she'll take responsibility for her actions.
i wish you luck on you being a good friend.
