OK, I have clearly been missing the boat here.
My nightly routine of late has just been "up and down, snow. Bathroom. Lights on. Watching the clock hands and wishing they would move to warp speed. Lights off. Noises (I think just mice here). Me yelling at mice. Up again. TV. Meds - FINALLY! More snow outside. Back to bed. Wincing and crying because meds haven't kicked in yet. Up - gave up on sleeping. Looking outside and avoiding going out to shovel snow." Eerily similar to PAlady's and Kttn's but obviously forgetting that I could be including the COMPUTER!
I'm thinking I'm going to pull up my bag of M&Ms (that's right PAlady - if you can't find 'em anymore it's 'cuz I've started having them delivered straight from the factory!) and my computer and join the night owl thread! You guys are loads of fun!
Hey, Skeye - thanks for asking after me in your other thread, btw. I'm doing a little better now. I had a bit of a health set-back unrelated to my back issues, and I'm just catching back up now. But it's good to be back among you all. It's so kind of you to say you were thinking of me.
PAlady - I know you had to switch pharmacies, so you might not trust yours enough yet to explore this, but I had a pleasant surprise this month with my percocet prescript
ion and it made me think of you. I usually pick mine up every month, and this month I called the doc's office as usual and requested the refill. They usually call me back and leave a message when it is ready to be picked up, but this time they said that they had mailed the prescript
ion last week - to the pharmacy! I was confused, so I called the pharmacy... Well, last month they started me on an "auto-refill" program since I have so many different script
s. I just figured that couldn't possibly include the percocet since it was a controlled script
and also technically a PRN med even though I take it on a schedule now. But it seems they DID include it. So THEY called the doctor FOR me and had, in fact, gotten it in the mail the very same day I called.
Anyway, I'm going to have to monitor this for a few months to be sure the process works, but I also have a private pharmacy close by that I trust. I know you don't have the same situation right now. But I do wonder if they could mail the script
directly to the pharmacy for you. Maybe that would save you some days in situations like this? It might be worth exploring.
OK, everyone. I'm off to start the cycle for the evening! LOL
