I hope I am posting in the correct area and if not I am sorry.
I used to come to BL frequently a couple years ago but decided to clean up after a year of daily meth injections and stopped visiting as often. I am happy to say I was safe, always used clean sticks and NEVER experienced any complications.
Anyways to my point. About 2 weeks ago a close family member, who has been shooting for years got an abscess from meth. She refuses to get help because we live in a small community and she is afraid of people finding out. She reuses and bleaches needles and has hep c. The other day she came to my house and showed me her legs which were both extremely swollen. Her shoes are no longer fitting and it keeps getting worse. Sun I offered some antibiotics I had left over from an infection from my wisdom tooth I just had pulled since she won't see a Dr. I last seen her Sun (I usually see her everyday with out fail) and she was very spun. I was mad the last couple days because we share a family plan and she hasn't paid her bill causing disconnection of all of our phones. She is a junkie but at least always has paid. Then it clicked with me today how swollen her legs were. I went to her house 2 times today with no answer and obviously has no phone.
I am worried. Could something of happened that caused the swelling and getting her extremely sick or worse? BTW she obviously shoots in the legs because her arm veins are ancient history.
Sorry it was so long.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read.
