phucking phrustrations, and the pharmacy

Ya know, I am sick sick sick sick sick sick of EVERY TASK at hand in this loverly state taking 4 hours to complete. The simplest of tasks.

7 years ago, I would have died of a stroke immediately. Now, I just STEW, and stew until I feel like I am preventing a stroke.

I am confounded and amazed at the amount of effort people put into flat out lying, and tap dancing down here. I really am.

But today, oh my....

Saturday morning I noted the children's zyrtec being almost empty. I did note that they had enough to make it to probably Tuesday night.

So, I ran the script in Saturday. While I was standing there, I noted my imitrix had 1 left. So I also ordered that. That was 15 minute, at the pharmacy on Saturday morning. I left empty handed....telling them I would be back. "No hurry, I will be back"

Yesterday, DH had to go to the Dr. to get knees x-rayed, a shot, and pick up an anti-inflammatory. There was some question re: insurance covering the specific med etc. So they had DH wait for 45 minutes, while they got nothing done. DH was pleasent, sore, but left with a smile, and told them he would return tomorrow.

OK folks. That is 45 minutes at the rhymes with "Phroeger", leaving empty handed.

I have just returned again from "rhymes with Phroeger", after spending 45 minutes in the drive thru lane.

When I finally got to the window, 30 minutes into the wait, I made sure they knew who I was, what I was there for, and how LONG I had been in line. Heck I even wrote all of our names down to ensure they would remember all of the meds.

So I left empty handed AGAIN....because they did not have my medicine ready.

excuse #1) new girl

excuse #2) we are a VERY busy pharmacy

excuse #3) blamed the Drs. offices. (Which by the way I called, and no they had faxed everything in. I also made sure they knew they were being blamed)

I informed the pharmacy that I was a nurse, so I am aware of the time it takes to call in or fax, or write a Drs. order down. I know it does not go through Jesus himself.


Also note I left our last pharmacy in town for the same reason....

There are no pharmacies left in town.

Get me the phuck out of here.

That would have made me INSANE!! They didn't have scripts done from SATURDAY??!! Really, that is one busy pharmacy that they can't get a prescription done in 3 days!!

I hope none of you need surgery and need pain meds ASAP! Sheesh.

I live in the North. Things move pretty fast up here. A 25 minute wait at the pharmacy makes me crazy.
