I haven't been around for a little while, so hi again ~ hope you are all well!
Here's a good one...
So the other night (around 10:30pm) I break my vial of Novolog. Of course, it's my last one.. so I call Walgreens to order a refill. Right, no more refills on that prescription. So I mention what happened with the vial and ask if they can just let me buy a vial.. and I'll have my doctor send over the refill info in the morning. No. Hmm.. so I beg. Yup, still no. So I end up having to go to the emergency room and they *give* me an insulin injection.. still no prescription.
Next morning: I call my old clinic (I've just moved from one side of the cities to the other and don't have a new primary care doctor here yet) and ask them for a refill. They order one vial.. which is good, since that gets me through.. but I still need to be seen. Understandable.. so I call a clinic in the new place and try to make an appointment. They tell me that they need to call the old clinic and get a referral. Fine. They call me back this morning to tell me that when they called the old clinic, those people said they hadn't seen me since 2006 (mmhmmm.. sure)... which is interesting since I just had blood work done there in November. *sigh*
So now I have to find a new primary care doctor in the new town.. get them to refer me to the diabetes center I WANT to go to.. wait to see if they'll have time/room to see me... and oh yeah, tick tick.. I only have one vial of insulin left with no refills.
Why does this have to be so difficult?!?!?!!?!
/rant off ;)
