We don’t believe you

We’re at the apartment of a woman in her 50s. I don’t want to give the impression that I’m judging people by how they look, but this woman personifies the “After” photos of methamphetamine users.

“Do you use any drugs or alcohol?”

“No.”

Normally it’s not that relevant, except her BP is 160/110 and her heart rate is 145-170bpm. But after you slip this question in there a fourth or fifth time and the answer is still in the negative, it’s probably best to just drop the subject entirely.

I surreptitiously conduct a poll of the other 5 responders on scene, and every one of them thinks she’s using. But whatever, everyone lies to us.
