          Woman Says She’s Turned Into A Real-Life ‘Nurse Jackie’


          October 9, 2018

          Heather says after graduating from nursing school as the valedictorian of her class, she achieved her lifelong dream of becoming a nurse. But now, she says she’s afraid her license may become permanently revoked because she’s turned into a real-life “Nurse Jackie” and is under investigation in three states.

          “I take Vicodin, Percocet, Oxycontin, Oxymorphine, morphone, benzodiazepine, soma,” admits Heather who currently works as a registered nurse in a treatment center where they treat patients with substance abuse issues. “When I am coming off the medication, I am a real bitch because I’m panicking.”

          Heather says that her husband’s behavior and their toxic relationship drives her to abuse drugs.

          “John is a hardcore alcoholic,” Heather claims. “I don’t know what to do to get John to understand that his drinking is causing me to do what I do.”

          John, however, claims his wife is physically and verbally abusive and that she even burned him with a lit cigarette when he found her medication stash. He says it’s Heather who drives him to drink.

          “I feel like when it comes to my drinking, I do have it under control,” John says. “I don’t feel like I have an alcohol problem; I feel like I have an abusive wife problem.”
