Addiction is the great equalizer.

A dear friend suffers. She has been to rehab twice and nearly lost her nursing license. This time in rehab seems to have stuck. I say "suffers" because every day is a battle for her.

I was angry and our 28-year friendship has taken a hit. The addiction stole her from me. She has apologized 1,000 times, but what is the apology for? Having a disease?

She is better and moving forward. Still, I am heartbroken because my go-to for everything found a better go-to, which was the drugs.

-- Beverly Marie
