And another week has begun! For now, without a migraine. But instead with some annoying thing regarding my regular doctor (general physician). Last Friday, I had to go get my script for my migraine medication, but my doctor wasn’t there unexpectedly. Therefore, I had to go to his substitute doctor who takes over for him during absences. Every doctor has an arrangement with a couple other doctors and they take over for each other in case of absences. I couldn’t really wait until Monday, because the weather caused migraines almost every day now. I didn’t want to be out of meds over the weekend. It was good I did, because I actually had 2 migraines over the weekend, and I would have been totally screwed without the meds.
Anyway, today I called my doctor’s office, to prepare my monthly script for my pain meds (for my back & joint pain), so I can pick it up tomorrow. But shortly afterwards, the assistant of my doctor called me back, telling me that it looks like I changed doctors and that the system wouldn’t let her process and prepare my script (It’s a regulation by our national health insurance to prevent doctor shopping).
I told her that I only went to their official substitute (who was given as their substitute for that day on their answering machine too on Friday). She said that they must have processed me wrongly when I gave them my insurance card that day. They knew I was just a visiting patient from another doctor. They just made a mistake. So the assistant said that they’ll have to call and sort it out. She didn’t really sound worried about it, but of course I do worry anyway now. Because the pain meds are my other very much-needed medication.
Of course, that got my anxiety going, because if it can’t be sorted out, I can’t get my very much-needed medication. Except maybe if I pay for it privately, but I’m not even sure that is possible with a permanent script like mine (The script is permanent, but the meds are always for one month).
And I won’t know until tomorrow in the early afternoon if it’s sorted out and fixed. Knowing me, it’s likely it’s just my anxiety that has me worry, and it’s likely not even a problem, since she didn’t even sound like it’s a problem. Sigh… It’s really annoying when you have to wait until the next day to know about something you worry about. It ruins the whole day and night with a worried mood.
Ok, enough of this lol… Sorry for the venting!
I’ll see what comes out of it tomorrow…
