My sister is a 30 year old mother of 2. She struggled with drug addiction (prescription pills), until 2 years ago, before she got pregnant with her daughter. It all started with a vicoden prescription after a broken ankle, and it spiraled (throughout the next ten years) into her taking multitudes of pills daily. (oxycontin, valium, vicoden, zanax, etc...) She almost overdosed, and ended up in rehab. She has touched a pill in so long. We are all so proud of her. She's a wonderful, caring mother, and has a great job that she loves.
HERE'S the problem. Last night, she had a panic attack. (she's had these on and off since childhood, but it's been a long time). We were at my cousins house, who happens to have a valium prescription. And my sister, after the attack, asked for one and took it. Other than my cousin, I'm the only one who knows. How serious is this? Should I just leave it alone, or should I say something to her?
