I live with my male partner, a close female family member, and another girl who we all get along with.
I was prescribed sleeping pills by my doctor last year, and while I rarely use them, it is good to have them there if I need them. I had about 7-8 pills left in the bottle when I last used one a month ago. But when I looked last night, there weren't any left at all. My partner didn't take them (he sleeps like a lil wee chile and is decent as all heck) so it has to have been my family member, or our friend, or a friend of theirs (the family member quite often has groups of friends come to stay from another town). Relevant details: the family member and her friends drink lots and use other substances relatively often, and the other girl has some mental health issues that sometimes makes her behave oddly.
The sleeping pills going missing isn't really a huge deal - I'll just get some more, and it's not a large enough amount for anybody to OD on. It hasn't financially cost me even one half of a brass razoo. I am, though, really unnerved by the idea that someone has gone through my bedside table drawer, which is incidentally where I keep a bunch of my most frequent-flyer sex junk. (Them thangs is private!)
I don't want to bring it up and sound like I'm accusing anybody, especially if it's my family member or our friend. But I feel a line has to be drawn (don't go through my damn stuff; keep your friends on leashes or outta my room when they come over). Putting a lock on the door isn't an option, as we are renting and can't make alterations.
I am just not sure how to go about having this conversation, what to say, or whether to bother saying anything at all. I hate drama!
