...can't get anything sooner than a fortnight.
Admittedly, I've been putting it off for ages, but my pain control needs sorting out. I haven't been on any prescription pain meds since co-codamol started making me nauseous, several months ago.
Although my doc and I discussed it over the phone, and she advised me to take ibuprofen instead, if that still agrees with me, she never issued a replacement prescription. So I still have a valid prescription for drugs I cannot take, but none for the ones I actually am taking, which I'm back to buying over-the-counter. I can only get them in rationed amounts, and following interrogation, just like before I was diagnosed.
Plus I am paying for them all the time, despite having a prescription pre-payment card, valid for a year.
So although I've been managing, more or less, eking out my meagre over-the-counter allowance, finally enough was enough, and I decided I must get something prescibed officially, to replace the ones I can't take any more.
I thought it would all be sorted out in a couple of days, and I was so looking forward to everything being regular and above board again, but it's another two weeks before I can even see her. So at least that long still making do with rationed painkillers.
I know I've been silly to leave it so long in the first place, but having finally seen the light as it were, I thought I might be in there tonight or tomorrow, and emerge clutching my brand new prescription.
No such luck, eh? Got all excited for nothing.
In other news, turns out my neuro appointment I agreed to a year ago falls Easter week, which I wouldn't have been aware of at the time. Which puts paid to any thoughts of going away that week. So thinking I might need to ring up and cancel that, now. Surprised my neuro's working, to be honest. Shall we take a bet on who cancels first? Bet it will go back weeks if I cancel. 12 weeks, do you reckon?
