Hi everyone, I haven't been on the board in awhile (just needed to step back and take a break from it.) I have an interview today for my practicum at a rehab hospital in connection to my LCDC licensure. I have worked very hard and am thrilled for the opportunity! However, I have a DUI on my record which is a little over a year old. It's making me very nervous and I am hoping this will not hinder their decision. I am asking for prayers and positive energy! As alcoholics, we have a past. I certainly do and the growth I have found in AA has been a God send. I am hoping that my past will not come back to haunt me as I have left it right there...in the past. I use experiences of my past now to explore my current situations and how my reaction to actions around me can differ. I just don't punish myself for it anymore. I am doing my best to life in TODAY and not operate in fear of the unknown... Thank you for letting me share!
