For whatever reason, a load of the stuff on my repeat prescription has been taken off. And even though they’ve had literally two weeks to arrange it since I starte hassling them, my prescription hasn’t come in on time, again – My prescription NEVER comes in on time. I always ring up, and the pharmacy says “It’ll be ready on Thursday” and then I ring up on Thursday and they say “We sent it off today” and then promise to deliver it when it comes back, and then a week later I phone up again to say “Where’s my prescription?” and they say “Oh, it’s not come back yet, we’ll have to chase up the surgery…”
Basically, it seems that there’s a massive cock somewhere between the surgery and the pharmacy (Which are only a hundred yards apart) and that there’s no way to set up my repeat prescription to do what it says on the tin – To whit; Every month, when it’s due to run out, a van containing all of my drugs turns up at the house, and then I have my drugs.
So, I’m off to London in a couple of hours, and I’m going with basically no diazepam. Considering that I’m going to be in a very stressful situation, have to do a lot of sitting upright and walking, and will be spending four hours in the car, I can see this being an issue.
On the other hand, I’m sitting in the living room at my best friend’s house, there’s bright sunlight streaming in, my gladstone bag is packed, I’ve had a good breakfast and it looks like a lovely day to travel. See you in London.
