  • Aggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh!

    I don't make it a habit to come on here and get upset about my conditions as I know how many of us there are now!

    Its been such a terrible morning - I have had such an awful time trying to get my medication (nabilone, a cabbanoid which my pain team consultant prescribed me) from my pharmacist so have had month after month of arguments with them, as the withdrawal symptoms are horrific! x2 days ago I was told it was waiting for me and I could go in and collect it! However this was not the case, as my GP had decided that they needed me in for a medication review - this morning (with my bladder on fire, and me barely able to walk) I made my way to the doctors! The bus journey was hell as with IC, Endometriosis and Human Seminal Plasma Hypersensitivity they are all hidden disabilities and no-one offered me there seat! (My mum suggested a stick to poke people with ha ha) Once I arrived, I was seen by the doctor who just asked me why I hadnt been to my consultant to do this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Plus the receptionists just seem to mislay my medication script (this has happened many times before with these receptionists) so I told the doctor to ring back through to the reception and ask them again, she did and........they were there, the receptionists once again had not looked properly! I was sent on my way without a blood test or pulse check!

    I no that none of this makes any sense, and im sorry if all my spelling and grmamer has gone out the window - can barely see the keys through my tears! It just seems like the minority (us) are not prioritzed by doctors because the majority come in for 'headaches' or 'colds' so we cant be treated!

    Please, you dont have to reply - I just needed to rant at how bad the nhs is for myself! This is no one else's opinion! Im sorry if I have offended anyone or anything!

    I'm so sorry you're getting the run around from your doctors.

    Always something, right?

    I hope it all gets straightened out so you can start to feel better.

    And please, feel free to rant away any time!
