This has to have been one of the most stressful weeks I have had in a long, long time. Not only did I have mid-terms, I also almost had to postpone our cycle.
It appears that the medication being sent by the clinic is lost in transit. The package left Prague on the 22nd of January and has yet to arrive. Now you might be thinking I have plenty of time since we don’t leave in 6 weeks but the issue is that I have to take the most important one when my period starts, which is more than likely coming today or tomorrow.
I have spent the last two days trying to get one of my doctors here to re-write the prescription from the clinic in Zlin (no pharmacy will take the foreign script). One doctor said no, another said she had to wait to research the drugs, and finally one would write it but it would cost around $600 for just one of the drugs needed.
Finally today the doctor who was doing the research agreed to write the prescription and will administer the injection. This was such a relief. She is also the doctor I see at our community clinic so the cost was very affordable in comparison to a retail pharmacy. Since I am on unemployment I have funding assistance which gives me prescriptions for an incredibly reduced cost. As well, seeing the doctor is usually just $20.
All is well now but man oh man was I a basket case.
