Any celebrity drug addiction pales in comparison to that of Jeannette Barnes’ self-described prescription drug abuse.
Every day the 43-year-old takes at least 34 pills, gulps spoonfuls of medicine and puffs on three different inhalers.
She claims to be hooked on tablets dished out by doctors over the years. It all began with Valium.
Barnes, of Weston-Super-Mare, in Somerset, said she suffers from depression, insomnia, irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure, asthma, cholesterol problems, heartburn, vertigo and allergies.
Barnes said she fears her drug dependency will kill her.
"Taking these drugs could be killing me, but I can't come off them suddenly," Barnes said. "When I try, I get the shakes. It takes me an hour every day just to take all my medicines."
Barnes said as a teenager she was diagnosed with anorexia and given diazepam, better known as Valium; but she has never had the right help to come off the drug.
