    To reduce the risk of duplication of medicines or harmful drug interactions, try using only one pharmacy that keeps track of all your medications.

    A Pharmacist called me “A big red flag” #ChronicPain

    This afternoon I called my doctors office to ask why my muscle relaxer was not filled. They informed me that the pharmacist wouldn’t fill it because of a state regulated law. This I understand, however I have been taking these medications together for many years. I am a chronic pain patient and I am treated based off what I can and cannot take. Not only am I a chronic pain patient due to a genetic disorder in which I was born with(Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) but as many of you know this comes with a list of comorbidities. I won’t get into all of them but one of the comorbidities that I present, is mast cell activation disorder. I am allergic to and/or have reactions to a lot of different medicines. I am currently taking three medicines that the pharmacist decided he was going to hold hostage. 1 Percocet, 2 Clonazepam, and 3 Metaxalone. None of which are regularly filled on the same date. I also do not take the Percocet daily, it is as needed and only for very bad days. I just recently switched to Metaxalone because I was on Soma and understood the risks of the medication. I called the pharmacy to air my concerns. While speaking with the pharmacist he made it very clear to me that he did not see me as a patient in pain, but as a medication seeker. This made me quite angry. This is a new pharmacy for me so I do not know this man and he doesn’t know me. I’ve previously filled elsewhere and never had these issues or been treated this way, but when my insurance changed so did my pharmacy. I understand that these conditions are rare and that means they are treated differently than your typical ailment. I tried explaining myself to the pharmacist and he continuously spoke over me and wouldn’t listen. He treated me as though I was an addict he said “If” I needed all of these medications together than they needed to be prescribed by the same doctor, probably a pain management doctor. I explain to him that I saw a pain management doctor at which point he cut me off. He said “whoa whoa whoa now you are a big red flag.” He didn’t let me explain that I don’t get medication from this doctor because of people like him, people who treat me like I’m a junkie, like I’m little, like I don’t deserve to be treated with love. He didn’t let me explain I only go to a pain management doctor for a nerve ablation in my back for spinal stenosis. All he did was talk over me, and belittle me, make me feel like I was nothing. Although this is not something I am new to, it still brought back some memories I wasn’t ready for. Which is funny because the one medicine he’s holding hostage is the medicine that helps me control my PTSD from the abusive relationship that made me a scattered anxious mess. I grew after that relationship. I became pretty strong. Strong headed, strong-willed, strong hearted, a little mouthy even. The best part about it is he got to see that I refuse to be treated like anything less than human. I bite back. #EDS #pharmacy #RiseAbove #lovewins #Human

    Avoid stress #Stress

    While feeling like I have been hit like a freight train, pain running rampid, and no for sure cause they say to avoid stress. Well, I work in a pharmacy (stress), single mom (stress to provide), and now my daughter's school principal thought it was ok for some kid to grab my daughter's chest and not call me (huge stress). I am furious! My daughter should feel safe and secure in school. The boy has gotten no punishment. No he is not the athlete. My daughter is. So after a week and a half I emailed the superintendent. He called me that night. He was not happy. He assured me that the principal will be calling me. Someone has to stand up for her daughters no matter how much it hurts. #Stress #Antibullying #donttouchmydaughter #Pain #NervePains #pharmacy

    The Waiting Game #pharmacy #homehealthaide #Insurance

    All week has been a waiting game for me. First, I finally saw a psychologist for insurance purposes, who *agreed* that I need a home health aide for physical reasons, but I'm still waiting for the company to call me. Second, I'm still waiting for plumbing repairs to be finished on this crappy apartment and still have no water. Lastly, I'm still waiting for the pharmacy to fill my Rx from Monday and may have to pay $20 for a taxi if they don't finish during the hours I can get medical transport.
