This is not my typical blog. Instead of writing my own thing today, I wanted to share a story that moved me. It’s a true story of Anita Bertrand, CRNA, MS, who got hooked on powerful painkillers and would steal them on the job. She shares her story of recovery, remission, relapse, and redemption. The quote that stuck with me the most is “We must grant each other permission to save each other“.
