Karen, I'm sorry that you had to go through what I am going through. I do have to extend my gratitude for sharing this as it seems so very impossible. I was scared to write about
this experience and in fact after I started the thread I came so close to trying to delete it thinking everyone would think negatively of me. I am frightened that this happens at all for those of us who need pain medication.
Tina, it may seem strange that there are those who have never met in person, but who care for each other in a very dedicated way. I'm with Mikel on this, if you want to be a part of our family our hearts are
open wide. It isn't always easy to trust when you've been through serious difficulties in the family of origin. Yes, I too have formed a wonderful family with my husband and 6 children (2 boys 4 girls), but in this family I have included other people who have been here for me. I take it all in and enjoy all the people in my life.
To follow through with the issue of the false positive, I spoke with the head pharmacist and she told me that there had been instances on several occasions where the Phenergan and Protonix were concerned. She also advised I let them send it to the lab and hope they get it straightened out. If that doesn't work for whatever reason (and she felt sure it would) that she would gladly contact my dr with the information. I hope that's the way to go on this and I kind of feel it is. I believe all will turn out for the best. I certainly pray it will.
Thanks to everyone,
I'm called Cat, but as there are few other Cat's on here, I put the number of cats I have and combined it to spell out Catz4
