I’ve just discovered I have exactly one-and-a-half doses of cocodamol left.

OK, that was bad planning.

I can probably get a GP’s appointment tomorrow, but it’s very unlikely I can get a morning appointment. So I may end up crawling into my afternoon appointment on my hands and knees. Which is just stupid and embarrassing. Must remember to write why I’m there down on a piece of paper while I’m still compos mentis.

That’ll look good, won’t it? Pea-green woman curled up in ball on floor handing up note saying ‘opiates please’?

    I suppose if you are pea-green and curled up on the floor they are quite likely to give them to you… Not a fun way to spend your afternoon though.

    Why not give them a bell first thing and ask for a repeat prescription? Or, explain to the receptionist that you’re in pain- opiates script should bear you out! – and ask for telephone appt. Maybe H could pick up script? Hate to think of you suffering at all, let alone slogging forth unnecessarily.

    Gah, sodding iphone (I apologise for the namedrop) has eaten my laborious comment.

    Why not give the surgery a buzz, explain, and ask for a repeat prescription? Or chat to receptionist and ask for a phone appointment to request Heavy Duty Painkiller Repeats, which should be self-explanatory to them, instead of hauling ass down there, which seems a criminal shame. Maybe H could pick prescription up for you?

    Aaargh! And people just won’t refill painkillers over the phone for some reason. Best of luck – maybe your half dose will get you through to the afternoon?

    Urrgh. If I wasn’t in a tent in a field in the middle of the countryside I would come over and leave my stash by mistake at your house.

    I love tramadol myself. Thanks to shoulder surgery, foot repair, shattered elbow joint and knee reconstruction by various residents of Villa Kore, we have managed to accumulate a very respectable stash. Just in case my endo should return, you understand.

    Sorry for the suckiness of it all. Sending hugs but the chocolate, I’m afraid, she is eaten. *Looks wildly around the room for guilty party*
