She says she loans her pain pills to a friend sometimes and that the friend gives them back when they get their prescription filled and vice versa. However, I think she has different friends who do this with each other. They do have legitimate pain as far as I can tell. I am a physical therapist.
No, but she is my sister & has a history of drug problems. She is an lpn and lost her nursing license in the past, but could get it back if she would go through certain steps including drug rehab. She is afraid to renew it because she is afraid to be around easy access to drugs. She does have spinal stenosis, and I personally know that her friends she may be trading with do all have legitimate medical diagnoses also.
My sister is valuable at work, or I would just let her go. My question is mostly to decide whether I have to let her go, stop paying for her phone, or whether I don't even need to do anything.
