Well everyone was right . I made him take a pee test which opiate came back positive. He swears he watered it down too. But the over all conclusion came when he went into the bathroom after the test and locked the door ... I unlocked it and I caught him shooting up. He tried denyingb it even though I told him he was caught to just fess up. Next step getting him help or we leave until he cleans himself up

Thanks. I've done nothing but cry the past couple of days. I really hope I'm wrong but my instincts are telling me something different

I should also note he's very against drugs, tried coming off the subs many times . His best friend just died of an overdose a couple months back. He's also fired many people from his job for hard drug use. So this is where I'm torn. Aside from total lack of sleep for a week straight. He went back to work the very next day we came home and hasn't stopped since. So about 12-14 hour days plus helping with the baby at least once a night I know he's worn down and money wise we've never been in a bigger hole so I know he's worn mentally as well. I just can't tell if the bruising was from
Work / the accident (he's covered with other cuts) and everything else is just from being passed the brink of exhaustion or if he's actually on something. He doesn't scratch at himself, the minute he hits the bed he's out cold. I'm torn I keep looking up other symptoms too

he wasn't using needles but Ill get to that as well 

He had red eyes, sleeping a lot, anger outbursts, very defensive and making excuses if we would ask him 

Now one of my cousins 

His wife and him would use needles and they would wear long sleeves, always like disconnected from the world you know? and it looks like tiny mosquitoes bites. They had them all over the body too. 

And also very agitated when they didnt have some in their system.

He's on drugs. Don't leave your baby with him.
It's beneficial to him if you put your foot down. Your child will benefit if he gets clean.

You need to keep a very close eye on him. Sounds like drugs to me. If you find out that he is in fact doing drugs, please stick to your work and take baby until he is clean. It will be motivation for him too, to know you're serious.

The whole backpack scenario is super unsettling to me. I am glad he is against drugs, but that doesnt mean he won't get swept up into them for who knows why. I sincerely hope its just a lack of sleep and the stress of having a new baby.
