Crap

Filed under: Whining — mlah @ 8:28 pm

it took me 2 and a half hours to get a prescription filled today.

the pharmacy here refused to honor my u.s. prescription. then they made me register in their system for care. then refused to do that because i’m not tricare eligible.

after i kept jumping through whichever hoops they placed in front of me. they finally just flat out said no, not til i saw a doctor here. the appointment wait is looooong.

so i went to the emergency room.

yep.

absense of my med could cause a stroke.

they got me an officer who made it happen. i scored some drugs today thanks to lt vargas.

i wish migraines on petty officer holmes.

  3. As an ‘officer’s wife’ (mull over that one, Gussy boi), I’ve come to the conclusion that the Petty Officers (and NCOs) who actually run things are mostly afraid to make any decisions, so they fall back on the old “it’s not spelled out in my instructions so it’s not allowed” routine. The only thing worse are the civilians employed by the military. (Which brings me to a separate rant about the risk averse bureaucracy our military has become….) Takes an officer, who has the legal responsibility for any decisions, to make a call such as in your case. Congrats on finding one willing to do the right thing.
