    Pleased to introduce myself

    Call your cell phone provider and ask for a copy of those texts, especially due to these circumstances. Now, what state did this happen in? I have learned through my own friendly faults, I may mean one thing but it is taken totally different. I had no malice in mind, just having fun. As it turns out in your case, they had the fun, not you. I am feeling your pain!

    NCBON: Is this an Invasion of privacy ?

    all_over_again and sissykim, Thank you for your in put. One more thought, I bet the DOT employees are MOSTLY MEN. Please, do not misread me, I am accepting and surrendering, totally, to this new policy the NCBON has established. I will comply with dignity. Have any of you tried to this new procedure policy? IF you haven't, please try it the next time you use the bathroom. It is almost funny. I know the observer is just doing there job and they will be professional. They do this daily, collect observed urine's, that is not the issue. I am simply talking about this issue, "just what I was instructed to do from my sponsor 3 1/2 yrs ago". This was blogged on another nurse in recovery web site. I also posted the exact same thing there too and this is part of one response on the blog.. Sasto mentioned that recovery is about acceptance - but it is also about "SURRENDR" there is a whole section in the Big Book on the concept of surrender. It is not admitting to defeat but rather choosing not to fight so that you can concentrate on what you must do to survive. I disagree with that part of that blog, what do you guys think??? This is part of by professional survival, or at least I thought it was. Then this blogger wrote: I read the section you cut and pasted and nowhere does it say you have to lower your pants to the floor. It says lower clothing and underpants to mid-thigh. If you are worried about pant legs touching the floor wear shorts. I really don't care of someone see's me naked - There's not much to get excited about but if they want to look I'll show them. I feel the same way about airport screenings. I am going to respond like this... I never said i had to lower my pants to the floor, but try holding a shirt up and lower your panties and pants mid-thigh, then turn a 360. I bet your pants will drop to the floor....YUK, YUK I really do not mind or care if anyone see's my 50 yrs saggy body either. Thank you all for your opinions and feedback, Keep them coming. We all have opinions about things unless you are an ANDROID. I am smiling and laughing at some of the responses and sad about others, but i enjoy reading all of them!!! Keep it simple and respond not react!! Got2B:D

    NCBON: Is this an Invasion of privacy ?

    thank you for all the comments on this invasive procedure. acceptance!!! i have accepted and accepted and accepted with grace and charm. it was a big struggle for the first years but now i try to just go with it. just because we are in recovery does not mean we have to be run over like a piece of road kill, talked to like we are less than human and basically be treated like dirt. we have enough shame and quilt that we live with daily. i find recovery is about change, changing the whole person, mind, spirit and body. learning to love ourselves, again. treating others and ourselves with respect and love. i said this morning, if i can not vent and talk about things in a safe environment with out be ridiculed, then what are the support groups for???? this blog is about the delivery of the new policy of observed drug screens by the north carolina board of nursing not about the doing the observed drugs. i would give them my blood, hair and urine at the same time if they ask me too, and i would do with a sincere smile. this is about the copy and paste job they (ncbon) did from the dot; part 40- procedure for transportation workplace drug and alcohol testing programs (effective oct. 1, 2010) p 40.67 sections g thru k. in the first letter from the ncbon, they stated that these changes are being made as a result of changes in government standards for drug testing implemented in 2008. therefore, consistent with federal guidelines, effective jan 1, 2011 all urine drug screens will be performed using direct observation procedures. if this is a federal guideline then you nurses in other states would be doing the same thing as north carolina, right?? i do not mind being observed for drug screens. but you guys try this new procedure the next time you go to the bathroom, keep in mind your pants will be touching the nasty bathroom floor then you are going to put them next to you body?? yuk, yuk. thanks for reading this and i still want your feedback. by the way, i truly love my simple and rewarding life today and i am so grateful for the what recovery has shown me and keeps showing me everyday. i can look in the mirror and love what i see today, just for today. got2b (me)
  9. as of jan 1, 2011 the north carolina board of nursing issued this new policy for urine drug screens. keep in mind, it is not the drug testing or even the observed collections. it is the manner in which the test is performed. is this done in any other states? once again, not the observed collections but the way ncbon is dictating the collection procedure. $50.00 to 76.00 that is a 52% increase. can you nurses give me all your feedback and how you feel about this procedure? is this procedure done in any other states? what is your procedure, if any? can you nurses give me all your feedback and how you feel about this procedure? now, i wish i could upload all the forms that were sent to all nurses in the alternative program and the chemical dependency discipline program in north carolina. observed collection requirements effective january 1, 2011, all specimens collections for the ncbon participants must be directly observed. directly observed means that you must personally and directly watch the urine go from the participants body into the collection container. a participant's failure to comply with these requirements will be consider a refusal to test. 1. the observer must be the same gender as the ncbon participant. (the observer may be a different individual than the person serving as the specimen collector. 2. the observer must enter the restroom or facility where the urination occurs. 3. the observer will instruct the participant to raise his or her shirt, blouse, or dress/skirt, as appropriate, above the waist, just above the navel: andlower clothing and underpants to mid-thigh and to show the observer, by turning around- that the participant is not in possession of a prosthetic or other devices designed to carry urine substitutes. 4. after the observer has determined that the participant does not have such a device, the observer may permit the participant to return clothing to its proper position and then conduct the observed collection. 5. the observer must personally and directly watch the urine pass from the participants body into the collection container. 6. participants must adhere to all other procedures and guidelines for the chain of custody etc. as outlined in the enrollment packet from firstlab. thank you and i look forward to all responses. got2b Letter from NCBON.pdf New Drug testing Procedure.pdf
