Need help. My wife was diagnosed with ms 2 years ago. We had issues prior. 2 drug rehabs in 13 years together, 11 years married. Codeine and adderall addiction. We've been seperated since august due to a mystery weekend where she went out for the day and didn't come home for 2. Been "dating" , I love my wife and want to help. Found out she is now smoking pot daily. Stayed with me this weekend and smoked 5-7 bowls of pot each day. Said it's the only thing that stops the itching however I saw a rash come out 20 minutes after she smoked.
I think it is just an excuse to be high. I love her, I want us to work through this, but don't know if I can deal with the drug use. She also said it stops the pain in her feet and makes her feel better.
Prior drug history with this now is making me sad. I hate to see her like this. To watch my wife smoking the pipe makes me cry.
Any advice to help us through this.

Thank you for asking

Addictions issues are one amongst many hallmark apprehensions to working relationships. Your wife needs rehabilitation program, MS management and a competent addiction medicine specialist and a psychiatrist for detailed management. It will be tough for you but if you made it , it will really boost your bond. She needs you. Your relationship needs you.

Take care
