I'm a nurse and I got fired for narcotic diversion. I was addicted to pain medicine. Ive been clean for over 6 months, I've been 100% compliant in the diversion program for medical professionals, I've gone to rehab, I go to NA 3x a week, I go to aftercare, I go to nurse support group I have a sponsor. I had to get a lawyer to retain my nursing license. I am not currently working as a nurse but I have maintained decent employment. I feel like I'm taking all the necessary steps, I'm taking care of myself. But i'm running out of money and hope. I got a letter today saying that the board might refer my case to the attorney general's office which means I could lose my license for a long time, I'm still waiting to see if I get felony charges. I never hurt anyone, this was only a period of a few months. I don't know how much more I can take. I keep doing all the right things. I just feel like I'm going to have a panic attack, my lawyer won't call me back, I just want this to be over with so I can move on with my life.
