I have become a productive member of the pharmacy community. My life story left me humbled to my knees. I lost my 23
year old marriage, but my relationships with my three children have grown into unexpected positiveness and I feel grateful to be able to mend those bridges. I have a new set of friends whom are completely reliable and understand my emotional roller coasters I have encountered. I was disciplined by my professional board, whom were somewhat helpful, but more disciplinary based than recovery based. I have been allowed to clear my license and I never had to stop practicing. I have been able to live a life bountiful and blessed. I will celebrate 20 years sober this October 15, 2017 if I continue on the path I was offered.
Keep up the good wait and don't wait to ask for help until you are forced into help.
Everyone was shocked when I was caught. For me, it needed to happen many years before. I could have died as many of us could have. My co-workers and my family were so uneducated.
