    Cool

    T'was the night before payday,
    and all through the house,
    not a creature was stirring,
    Sam killed that mouse.

    There is absolutely no excuse for the NP not to renew your prescription. You can't just stop taking it! You're taking it to control seizures, and when you stopped taking it, the seizures returned. Did you ask why the NP hasn't renewed it?

    Please call CVS and tell them what's going on and ask them for enough pills to tide you over until this gets sorted out. I've never had a pharmacy, which wouldn't do that. And, I was asking for seizure meds, particularly Phenobarbitol, which is a controlled drug now. Also CVS should be on the phone to your doctor's office requesting a refill on your behalf.

    Once this gets sorted out, please do what I suggested and start calling for your refill well before you run out, because it sounds like this issue isn't going to go away.

    The NP works for your doctor, and denying you this med, which could cause you to have a recurrence of seizures, is unacceptable. Your doctor took an oath to "first do no harm." If you have a seizure, because the doctor/NP was negligent in renewing your prescription, that is causing harm.

    Remember, the doctor works for you. It's not the other way around.

    Prayers that you get this resolved very quickly. If not, I'd be glad to call your doctor/NP and tell them how the cow ate the cabbage. I guarantee you'd have your meds pronto!

    Love & Light,



    Rose

    Howie, I hope there is room for one more clucking hen. The above is a quote from Rose's post. Just call and read it off to your doctor's office. It will get results.

    Trust me, you are just too nice. Leave it to us women to be mean, nasty and ugly. We'll teach you yet.

    It was 95 degrees today and my brother said heat index was 107. I went to Post Office, drive thru bank, and grocery store, and stopped at Chik-Fil-A and got something to eat. Took me one and one half hours on errands and another 20 min to unload. I thought I was leaving at 1:00P.M. and when I got in my car and glanced at the clock it was 2:00P.M. I had not had lunch, because when I thought it was one o'clock, I figured I would be back by 2 o'clock and could eat then. So anyway I got lunch about 3:45P.M. I had bought a cobb salad from Chik-Fil-A, so I ate some of that and finished it for dinner tonight.

    It was hot as hades out there. I think it is going to be just as hot and maybe hotter most of the rest of the week.

    Howie, if tomorrow is your payday and you go do errands, you might want to go early, assuming it is as hot there as it is here. I saw lots of Completes in Lowe's Foods today. I know that is not where you go, but every time I see a bunch of Completes I think of you.

    Isn't Sam partial to turkey? Maybe you should switch to turkey yourself, Howie.

    I watched a PBS Nova program about cats this evening. Someone has trained some cats to do tricks, like jumping through hoops. Hard to believe but there they were.

    I echo what Rose said.
    Actually, I would go down to the office and sit in the waiting room until you got the prescription. Ask for a 90 day supply. That will give you time to establish yourself with another doc.

    Not making waves is one thing, however, your life and health are at risk here. Your doctor is clearly sub par in doctoring.
    Unless you are not telling us something? I.e. perhaps you are actually a drug dealer and hoarding the med and selling it on the black market for profit. Nah, I didn’t think so.

    I’ve known docs like yours. . They are warm and charming to the patient, and they kill through neglect.
