Welcome back to Free My Cure. My name is Nicola and I am a Terminal Stage 4 cancer patient. I turned to cannabis 4 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. I have improved my quality of life by 10 percent and I don’t plan on stopping here. Join me on the journey to find a cure for my cancer using cannabis!
Some days are more stressful than others, however, this past week has definitely taken the cake. So this happened, I saw my Dr. for excessive weight loss, urinary tract infection, possible kidney infection, Interstitial cystitis flare up, and last but certainly not least vomiting blood. My dr. wrote prescriptions for antibiotics, Tylonal 3 because I try not to take heavier pain medications at home, so like 90% of us I went to the pharmacy and dropped off prescriptions when the pharmacist informs me they don’t have all 60 of the Tylonal 3 so he is going to fill 12 tablets tonight and I can pick up the remaining 48 pills the next day after the 1 pm delivery. My condition worsens through the night and I am told by my dr. to go to ER, where I am treated like a junky because I use medical cannabis legally. ER doctor finds that I still have a bladder infection from over a week ago and proceeds to prescribe Keflex and anti-nausea medication.
All is said and done in the ER I am practically pushed out of the room, I literally asked if I could stand up first. This is an older nurse and dr. that still believe in the days of reefer madness. Knowing the ER prescribed the wrong medication I went straight to my urologist’s office with the paperwork from the hospital. My Urologist having to fix the medications becomes irritated with the treatment at the hospital and proceeds to call and voice his concerns directly to the ER doctor, Yaaa Doc this is how it’s done.
I then proceed back to the pharmacist to be told he isn’t going to fill the 48 Tylonal that he stilled owed me, however, he was going to charge my insurance for the entire 60 pills. This is where I lost it and this is why I lost it. Once an insurance company is charged for a prescription it takes the pills out of inventory and the pharmacist can then do with the pills as they wish, what you need to know is the insurance is putting those pills on your record even though you didn’t get them they are going to take the pharmacys word over yours as a patient, so before you leave the pharmacy you need to be sure to ask for it in writing, what are they charging your insurance, how many pills are they charging your insurance for, and did you actally recieve all of the medications. If the pharmacist refuses or states he can’t give you anything in writing, he or she is lying, and call your insurance from the pharmacy explain to the insurance what is going on, this is insurance fraud, this needs to be reported.
All this coming back like a circle, as a cancer patient I find stress is really an enemy. Stress hurts emotionally, and physically, stress causes my stomach, intestines, and bladder to bleed and I find physical activity and demolishing something helps relieve the built up stress so I’m going to kill this Toshiba 52-inch flat screen tv.
STAY FREE, FLY HIGH, AND AS ALWAYS FUCK CANCER
