MIL just started Prozac & Xanax - What do I do?
Well I am new here and I hope this is the right place to enter this question.
I am a 40 year old military spouse with 3 young children ages 3, 22 months and 9 months. My husband deploys 2-3 times year for 3 months at a time. My Mother in law lives with us and was supposed to be taking care of our 3 kids when I start my new job in a week or so.
She has been having dizzy spells and went to the doctor. He said her blood pressure is fine so "he is not worried" about her dizzy spells. Then she casually mentions "oh and he gave me a prescription for Prozac and Xanax..." I am very concerned about leaving my kids with a 65 year old woman who is on these medications. Her response to me is "oh these are just my crutch for now. The kids will be fine" This is supposed to make me feel better? My new job is an hour away and I must work so that we can afford our bills and pay off our debt that accumulated while I was pregnant. I don't know what to do. My husband says "let's wait and see how my mom reacts to the medication this week" That is fine but what about next week when I have to start my new job ? And my husband is deploying in one month. I need advice badly....
