Medication Fail

So I had started a new medication. It’s a popular one so I won’t name it, but a lot of people have had a lot of problems with it. The problem… well kinda… was that I DIDN’T have a problem with it. It was working. My pain was nearly non-existent, I had energy and I was making plans. PLANS people!

I was thinking about going back to school and going back to work. I was happy about this. Then I ran out of the prescription they gave me to ‘tide’ me over while the prior auth went through. And the real problem started. It’s been denied five times already.

Th withdraw was horrible. My doctor finally called me in and gave me samples but it looks like I will have to decrease the med until I am off of it for good. IT SUCKS. And so came the major depression and me feeling stupid for thinking I had a future.

I’m better now and maybe (someday) I’ll be able to do what I thought I would be able to do. I figured out the ending to Riders 2 today, now just end to write backwards to finish the middle. My oldest read it and all he said was ‘Wow’ (in a good way!). I hope readers say the same!
