God knows i've never had to deal with a parent doing drugs, but a few of my best friends have. And you really need to talk to her about it. get it out in the open. but she needs to know you weren't snooping. you wouldn't like it if she was snooping under ur bed. It'll be hard, but you two need to talk it out.
you mentioned that you did drugs. you know what she's going through- be there for her... parents cry too. be brave.

Before you get all sad and do something stupid, what kind of pills are they? Are they prescription pills?

Just because you found pills doesn't mean she is abusing them...

And? ..they're pills. Lots of parents hide them so their children can't get into them and abuse them or do something stupid. It's very easy for kids to go into the medicine cabinet and find some goodies these days. That's how my addiction came to be a couple years ago. Make sure you even know what type of pills they are before jumping to such conclusions. That's not fair to your mother at all. Just chill out and stay calm.

Talk to your mum about it, and like the above posters said, find out what they are before you jump to conclusions, it could just be birth control, or any type of prescribed medication.x


"The stars are always there but we miss them in the dirt and clouds. We miss them in the storms. Tell them to remember hope. We have hope."

"But in the ruins there is still a canvas. There is still beauty in your brokenness. The faded scars show healing reminding me that even though Iíve been in dark places, Iíve survived and learned and become stronger".
