drinking

You are now being drug tested?

I don't eat or sleep and work knows something is up I cant take it anmore, yes I am being drug tested

You need to be as level headed as you can. This happened before your probation and the start of the rehab ordered in your sentence.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Technically you did not violate probation. You were not yet on probation, correct?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
correct but its still a felony I will lose my cpa license
and everything
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have nothing no money no family
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Has your counselor said they are reporting you to the police?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
no, but they had to include that report to the state safety driving counsel which shares with probation and the courts
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
eventually the January thru March stuff will be found out
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
in FLorida they have a new law that even I extra narc script within 30 days will get reported to the police by the pharmacy
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

And perhaps they will see it as part of the problem that led to your DUI and that you need help and rehab.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Did the same pharmacy fill your prescriptions?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I am up all night readiing this
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I will need a lawyer again and my DUI lawyer took all my money I have none
Customer: replied 7 months ago.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

If you don't have money, the court will appoint a lawyer for you.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Please hang in there.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
ugh I will have to quit my job to show no money...
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
thank you for helping
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Don't do that.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
THe firm will fire me
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

You need to wait and see what happens. They may not charge you. Just follow what you need to do on probation. Get counseling and support. You are thinking too far into the future.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
thank you pls say a prayer for me
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Many of these new script laws are designed to find the doctors and the pharmacies that are doing the wrong thing.

Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

I will pray for you. I believe in prayer. You have to promise to keep doing the right thing.

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have been reading stories of arrests and many are folks that just did it once and weren't on probation or had priors
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
ok thanks so much GOd bless
Expert:  Colleen Grady replied 7 months ago.

Stop reading those stories and concentrate on your job and probation.
