I successfully completed TPAPN. I also thought of surrendering my license. I think it’s a normal thought in this process. I’m glad I didn’t. I make a good living. Not all positions are a fit for me. All jobs have stress. Leaving a profession I worked so hard at wasn’t really ever on the table. I just didn’t want to deal with the paperwork, requirements, or spend my money. But I did, and I walked away a stronger person, and my career is intact. Do people know. Yes some do. But I don’t care. I don’t feel like I’m black balled. Actually I’ve had support when I needed it. More people are recognizing the epidemic of drug addiction and implications on a person. Some, I’m sure may look down their nose at me, but my head is held so high I have no idea who they are. My advice. Don’t give up. This is temporary. Good luck.
