Feeling Used by my addict nurse friends

  1. Hi,
    Hoping you can give me some feedback. I have been a nurse a long time and now realize that I cannot tell if a nurse is diverting or not. One longterm coworker/friend (addict) made ammends to me, but it felt so superficial and empty. Now another longterm coworker/friend relapsed and lied to me when seeking my assistance as a union representative. I don't feel like I want to talk to them. Will they reach out to me or will the shame stop them? Should I just move on?

    thank you.

    If you feel the amends wasn't sincere you can choose not to accept it and move on.

    Sometimes with the wreckage we heap on others during our addiction, it's understandable when they move on without us, even when me make amends. It's o.k. to move on.
