How do you handle someone who has fibromyalgia and addicted to pills?

I have no way of 100 % proving that she has overdosed in the past but I know she has. She was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1993 and its gone down hill from there. I feel that she is unstable and will take drastic measures. Is there a way to have her committed for her own good?

    My wife was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and she is in constant pain. I don't know if eventually she'll need stronger doses of the medicines she takes, but we have to be understanding, it's a very painful illness and it takes a lot of patience and empathy from all of us involved. It would be really good if she / you could find a support group. Good luck.
