I have been on pain management medication for 7 years. I take my medication according to doctor's instruction, I also have regular surgical nerve block procedures and despite my condition I manage to work a full time job commuting 2 hrs. every day. I am well aware of the hype and hysteria generated in last few years regarding the "OPIOID CRISIS!!!" I understand there are some who abuse their medication or sell them illegally - Walgreens Pharmacy treats me like I am a junkie. I get rude attitudes, dirty looks, challenges constantly that I am a day too soon for a refill, denial of a refill etc. My doctor prescribes my medication to the day. Walgreens challenges it, claims insurance won't cover thd refill and when I contact my insurance they say it is approved.
It is bad enough that I suffer from chronic pain after being rearended by an undocumented driver with no insurance who slammed his Lincoln Continential into my Honda Civic at 30 mph while I was stopped at a red light. But having to endure the obnoxious, judgemental, rude and often hostile attitudes I receive when attempting to get my medication filled is infuriating!
I am not a junkie, I am not a criminal, I am not some loser working the system.
I am a hard working middle age guy who was a victim 10 years ago who continues to feel victimized every month when I attempt to get my prescription filled at Walgreens.
