After Losing My Job Over Pill Addiction, I’d Like To Become A Nurse Again

I was a very successful and sought after Registered Nurse, who lost it all due to pills. Not only my job, but my blemish free criminal record as well. It has been 4 years since it happened, and I still struggle with the shame and guilt and self-loathing. I have come a long way, and I know I have a lot to be proud of, so I don’t know what I’m looking for to push me to get the ball rolling so that I can hopefully be a nurse again. It’s all I’ve ever wanted to be. I have spent the last 4 years searching for something that would make me just as happy, and I have yet to find it. But that’s because it had been right in front of face.
