OK, so yesterday I went to Walgreens to pick up my prescriptions, including
300 test strips. When I picked them up I noticed before I paid that the test
strips were not there. So, I ask where they are. The guy gets on the computer
and says, oh we are out. I said, no you are not they are right over there. I
point to a whole bunch of the Ultra test strips. The guy said, oh no we don't
have any boxes of 100 test strips. I said, so get me the boxes of 50 its the
same thing. He talks to the pharmacist and she comes over and said, you don't
really test yourself 10 times a day do you. You don't need that many test
strips. She was so bitchy and rude. I looked her straight in the eye and
said, yes I test myself 10 times a day, many times it is more! Then she
proceeds to tell me that they would give me an IOU. I said that was
unacceptable. I am getting on an airplane the next day (today, yay!) to go on
vacation for a month and there was no other opportunity for me to get my test
strips and I said, you have boxes of 50 over there and I will take 6 boxes.
After a little more arguing she finally gives them to me.
Sorry, I just got so frustrated that this women would tell me that I don't
test myself 10 times a day as though it were a bad thing to take control of
this disease and do something that can very possible keep my body healthy.
All this is after a four month battle with Walgreens on not giving me the
right amount of insulin. At least they figured it out this time around.
Adriana, who is leaving in a few hours to go home and see the 'rents after
being at school for 4 months. WOOOHOOO!
