Hi there,

I agree with everyone else too....worry about the addiction later....

I too was in a life changing accident a year and a half ago and broke ankle, L5vertebrae, tibia plateau, and pelvis....

Alot of what your dad is probably experiencing, causing depression, is post traumatic stress disorder which I have had bouts with also....
I lost my home, work, and alot of dignity due to my injuries because I was/am so dependent on other people due to the injuries.....this "accident" was due to a crime to top it off....so I'm a victim of that too....
My bou'ts with depression I know are not by any means over and I've had many nightmares due to this...

I'll have to agree that drug dependence shouldn't be an issue at this point and 2 extra broken ribs don't change the fact that he would have had to be on high doses of pain meds anyway.....
Maybe you can try a care givers board....it sounds like you might be having a rough time with this as well...
these types of things effect the care givers as well as the victims....

Best of Luck to you!
Shay
