Our expert says:
Sam makes some good sense. She is an old woman, and caring for someone you love who is dying, for several years, is a major burden. Maybe she feels its her turn to be cared for, maybe she is genuinely overcome with grief now. She deserves support and help. NOW, that said, abusing pills won't help her at all, and by rendering her efefctively drunk much of the time, may make her needlessly irritating to you and others, and deserves treatment. Discuss this calmly with her, and arrange with her support ( it won't work, without her support ) for detox and follow-up counselling to help her get off the meds and to stay off them. DOn't keep blaming her for being "weak" --- you'll be weak yourself, one day.
