Drug addiction does not end when one reaches an elderly age. Today, I was thinking about a former lover, who continues to be a drug addict. Due to my ongoing therapy related to a CSA, I now realize that I was an enabler of a drug addict lover. Healing myself through my mental health issues at this elderly age, I have to limit my daily stressors for my healing growth. I feel shameful that my infatuation neglected me to see how I was enabling a drug addict. I realize now I was emotionally being abused, each time my lover got "high" on drugs.
