Kara,
Did you try calling them? Could you see in the windows and if so, was anything moved or missing? There's achance that they got in some kind of trouble and skipped out. You should start making phone calls to other doctors as soon as they open up. If you can get an appointment today, bring in your med containers and tell them what happened! Do it before you start withdrawl symptoms. Good luck Kara, I'll pray for you!

What!! They made the mistake but you are paying for it...That really BLOWS!! What did they say when u called? Didn't you tell them about you running out of pills? They oughta know that you need to come in before May 4...Maybe u should call them back? Tell them about your meds...and tell them you need to come in sooner...

I was lucky that my doc let me see him on Monday instead of having to wait for another week, I was almost out due to extra pain and taking a few "extra pills", which I told him about...It could have turned out much different if I wasn't honest... So, hang in there...and make the appt. sooner if u can...I wish there was something I could do to help...Been there and it really SUX...

I had a pain specialist 5 years ago that would make my appointments on friday afternoons, and when I got their it would be closed with a sign saying to people who had an appointent to call on monday, this happened 3 times and I was so angry, I ended up having to call my reguluar doctor and told her what happened and she would give me 3 days worth of meds to help me out. Luckly that pain doctor never had me sign a contract so I couldnt get in trouble, and I told them I would not make my appointment for fridays anymore, even though the 30 days would be on a friday, I told them they could post date my prescriptions cause I hated the panic feeling of going to my appointment with no meds left over and them not being their, it just wasnt right, they could of atleast called.

Kara,

OMG, what a terrible thing to happen to you! It could almost be reported
to the medical society. I'm totally burned up. Furious.

You seem to be going through a very rough patch in your life. I'm sooo
glad you're keeping your computer access. With all of us helping you,
we surely will figure something out.

Call again. Start crying a little. Don't cry so much they think you're
hysterical. Just a gentle snuffle. Write down what you're suffering from.
The effects.. Keep it simple. Don't make it complicated. Be sure that
you know those people in the doctors office love you and want to do
the right thing for you. That's attitude. You can do it. I know you can.

Attitude works wonders in doctors offices.

Pamela

Oh, I see..So you would have to wait until you went back to the Dr. to get your script?  My mistake...and even then you would have to wait until Thursday?  That sucks!!
 
I have had to go a few days without before and it was awful!!! I hope you're okay.

Kara that SUCKS!!!! I went without medication and it was terrible. I kept telling myself "You've done it before" to get myself through. If all of us would of known a few days earlier we could of mailed you a few dollars each to get you the gas to drive there!!!!
