+I did manage to get some much needed rest, but rest does not necessarily equate to sleep. For the past while I’ve been having trouble falling asleep, even when I’m on my machine. I’m going to see my doctor on Thursday so it is something that I’ll definitely need to discuss with him when I see him.
Yesterday I went to the movies with my friend. We saw the movie Good Hair. It’s basically all the things black women go through to maintain their hair. It was all quite funny. Much of it applied to me…except for spending $1000 on a weave/hair piece. Not I, said the fly! I’d never spend that much money on stupid hair. Dumb!
After that, I caught up with a friend of mine and we went for sushi. I haven’t seen him in about 5 years or so. It was great to catch up with him. I hope another 5 years won’t pass before I see him again.
Yesterday I went to the pharmacy and was very annnoyed with the service. They had called my doctor to get a prescription refilled for me exactly a week earlier, so I went to pick it up. First, they had filled the prescription but couldn’t find it. So, I had to wait for them to fill it again. Then, they told me that they were going to give me 25 days worth. What the heck is 25 days? Why not 30? They told me that was the amount my doctor had authorized. \
So, I went to the bank across the street and stood in a 20 minute lineup to get some cash. When I went back to the pharmacy, much to my chagrin, they hadn’t started filling my prescription. I stood there and I stood there for about 15 minutes. I got tired and sat down for another 15 minutes. Then, one of the pharmacy assistants walked by and says “Uh, your medication is ready.” Why the heck didn’t they tell me??
By now, there was a lineup of 3 people. Oh, this shouldn’t take long, I thought. So I waited. The lady at the front of the line had asked for 3 months worth of medication so she wouldn’t have to come back to fill her prescription every month. She told them this earlier in the morning to drop off the prescription. Much to HER chagrin, they only filled it for one month. So, they had to do it again. This took about 20 minutes. I was exhausted.
After they FINALLY finished up with her, the gentleman in front of me waited and waited only to find out that they did not know which medications he needed, even though his wife had called them in, as they were for her. Since he didn’t have a cell phone and they didn’t offer up a phone, he had to leave. What a waste of time!!
When all was said and done, I spent over an hour in that pharmacy. Ugh.
Anyhow, I’m going to go an “Fall Back” before I connect myself and go to sleep so that my clocks are all the right time when I wake up.
