Okay, so here I am... It's been 18 months since my last bout and they come back with, what else, a VENGEANCE!!
Anyway, I'm a freelance film editor and just started on a TV series with some new producers I've been wooing for some time now. Here was my chance to really make my mark! Well, as you can well imagine, my work days have been consisting of editing for a couple of hours, pacing around and screaming like a psycho for a couple more, then back to work until it's time for my psychotic behaviour again. I don't think I'll be working with them for much longer. Sigh...
But that's not what I wanted to bitch about... I wanted to bitch about the Pharmacists, or as I like to call them, The Drug Police. You see, I'm using an awful lot of Imitrex these days. I'm not taking more than the recommended daily dosage, just taking alot.
So, on Friday I went to the closest pharmacy to refill the prescription and the pharmacist wouldn't refill it because he thought I was using too much and then called the "pharmacists board" to lodge a complaint against the pharmacist who refilled my prescription before! He knew nothing of cluster headaches and didn't want to know... He suggested that I probably had a tumor and should go to the emergency room!!
I went to another pharmacy and the idiots there suggested that because I was having so many attacks in a day, Imitrex clearly didn't work!!
Bye for now...
