Day 1: My good healthy Deed for the Day - Filling prescriptions on time
Don't you hate when you run out of medicine? In my 17 years with lupus, I've tried auto-refill, auto mail-reorder reminder texts, alarms, and good ole post it notes in order to properly manage my prescriptions. But every once in awhile, a medication slips through the cracks. I find myself face to face with the pharmacist, requesting an emergency supply while they do a rush job filling my Rx. In fact, several speciality lupus meds, including my Cellcept, aren't kept in stock, so sometimes a rush job simply means wait. Oh, the horror.
But not this time!
Knowing my prescriptions were coming due soon, today I took time to assess my medication supply. I called in the ones that could be refilled, dropped off the scripts that were new, and called a doctor's office to get another that had been lost along the way. (Not by me - by my doctor/pharmacy.) With more than a week to go before I run out of anything, I allowed enough time for all scripts to be filled, picked up, sorted, and stowed in pillfolds. A personal victory, and one good, healthy decision that puts me one step closer to living well, despite lupus!
How about you?
