felon.... currently on electronic monitoring in Alaska. My criminal activities started when my drug use did. I have been a convicted felon since 97’ and my most recent and final one ending in a drug conviction in '11 My question is this - I was in the medical field before with my theft, and forgery.
I know no that is over with a drug charge, but I am finishing my time on electronic monitoring, and I am in treatment. Now and I am done. I need a career but I am 40 years old and don’t know what I want to be when I grow up! I thought about drug counseling or small business, but I want to know what there is that won't be limited because of my charges. Is there a test that I can take to see maybe what I might be good at? Do you have any ideas? I am going through the motions now and have many more things I want check out tomorrow online but if there is any advice that you might be able to give I would appreciate it.
