first I want to say my boyfriend is a wonderful man.we are both head over heals in love with eachother.my family loves him I adore him and he adores me also.I have never in my life been treated with such respect from anyone.he is very romantic and helpful (not the greatest listener) but what man is...I am very affectionate with words and physically and so is he.I love his 2 children and he loves my son as well.we have a wonderful meangful caring relationship.we met feb 2012 we have not been apart 1 day since 2 weeks into the relationship. we have a house we are renting we both broke our leases in apartments.it has come to my attention he has a severe addiction to xanax..he wants to get off of them but the meds he needs to safely get off it is to expensive and hard to get (HE DOESNT HAVE INSURANCE)Im ready to stick by him no matter what...I know he is a great person and he is good to me.I love him so much and have never felt so happy.Is it wrong for me to stick by his side?I dont think it is but maybe Im wrong.I made the decision to be with him til we are old and gray...we plan to get married.can i count on these plans???I dont know alot about perscription drug addiction.I left a man who drank to much and was violant towards me,I left a heroin addict who continuosly took my money and let me go with out..he is different..he has OCD and mood swings..(not towards me) but Im able to stay calm and I dont argue I just let him let it out...I dont judge him.I thin k this makes him feel at ease.I just wanna know Im doing right by him and whats good for him.
