I'm REALLY sick of it. Five years of this. The stigma tied to meds. If you can't see an ailment it must not be real..NOBODY gets it.
I just want to lay in bed at night without my heart pounding a mile a minute, is that too much to ask?
Newsflash to Pharmacist that judged me tonight: Not everyone that takes anti-anxiety meds is a druggie, some of us actually need them and take them properly. My Doc simply called in a new script because you guys screwed up and gave me a different brand from my usual that I had blacklisted in YOUR system. You guys missed the note. I don't care if you say they are all the same because they aren't. If I say "XYZ" brand doesn't work for me, it doesn't work for me. Period. Thanks for not bothering to call my Doctor to clear an early fill and instead wait till I get there several days later on a Friday night after my Doc's office is closed. Now I'm stuck with a $48 script (that I can't return) that is the equivalent of taking a tic tac during a panic attack all weekend. Thank you! That's perfect. And to top it off you treat me like a crack head and send me on my way.
Also a special "thank you" to all the bad apples that abuse medication that make me embarassed about having to seek help in the first place and go to the pharmacy every month!
Hope I sleep tonight.
