I left the government last year. I am actively being recruited by my old agency in a different area and they are offering me a new position doing something else (much more enjoyable).
I recently went through a background investigation with the local PD for a position and put down any and all drug use. I realized that I omitted one on my sf 86 from 2010 and 2015.
Specifically, while visiting family, I asked for some Tylenol. What they gave me was most likely a prescription pain medication, oxy. I took it, not knowing. , and then when I came to told them not to give that to me again (there was a language barrier issue with that, long story).
I put it out of my mind since then. But while I was working on my background with the PD I remembered it. I put it on my PD application but now I am getting this offer regarding returning and am wondering how badly this will bite me.
I looked at the notes on mitigation and know this is mitigatable, but it was omitted from my old sf86.
I know if I go back I will be including that. This is concerning me to some degree. Did I have any intention of omitting it, no. I flat out forgot. So I am concerned regarding adjudication (as it would go there). The only people present was my ex and her mother at the time (I suspect it was the mothers prescription).
Thoughts? I want to know whether to even bother going through with it and decline their offer.
