    I am 34 years old and I had moved back home into my parents house. I had no choice if I wanted to live sober because my roomates drink and because of the economy. My car is just a mess and full of old papers so today I am trying to clean out the trunk. I am finding TONS of old prescription bottles of OXYCODONE and CLONIPIN. I no longer get Oxycodone and even though I suffer from Axneity still, my doctor won’t give me Klonipin anymore.

    I found an old medication list. I want to keep it forever. It lists the Oxycodone, the Hydrocodone, and Klonipin. I haven’t found pill bottles yet, but I’m sure I will. I just don’t want to throw them out. My theory is “What if I get a new doctor and I need the anxiety or pain pills and they don’t believe me that I have been prescribed them before….All I will have to do is simply show them the old medication list or the old pill bottles.”

    What do I do? I know I should throw them out but if I throw them out I feel like I am throwing out a million bucks. I feel like an alcoholic debating whether or not I should throw out a full bottle of beer.
