Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

Interesting....now I'm curious how they do their pill counts with folks who don't partake in the phone technology that enables them to send a photo within the 2 minute time frame.

My mind immediately went to wondering how in the world my elderly mom would comply with that stuff, being as how she doesn't drive or use any computers/cell phones/and such.

It seems those instances would never get to be quite as random and timely.

if need be, and send them a photo with my phone...but it had to be
done within 2 minutes of the end of the call.

I used a spare office because I didn’t want 100+ dextroamphetamine
tablets on the front desk.

I sent my 2 photos and got a reply back that my Dex count was high,
and I was asked why I had not taken any lorazepam.

I answered the Dex was high because I took a couple of weekend days off,
and that I hadn’t taken any of the lorazepam because they were prescribed
for severe anxiety/panic attack, and I had only been, at best, moderately
anxious since, likely because the Dex keeps me calm.

I was thanked for my compliance and my quick feedback, and I was told
my doctor was pleased that I was taking my lorazepam as prescribed,
because he had some concerns given it was a new prescription in a
new class of medications.

Since my start in 2010, I have a 100% clean record on my Controlled
Substances tracker in that I have never “failed” a pill count, sought to
have a prescription filled early, doctor-shopped, or been arrested for
breaking the law in their regard.


Odd Monday Morning Task,
Ian

True...I know they still schedule in-clinic counts to coincide with scheduled appointments, and I know they do house-visit counts for those who cannot come in easily if they are on certain opioids.

I was given the option of having a count done when I come in for an appointment later this week...so I don’t think they are on a “we need to know, and we need to know NOW!” path.


Cheers,
Ian

I'm trying to find pictures of tarantulas to show my brother, he's emailed me to say he thinks he's held a tarantula but he's not sure.

My mom would have been probably furious over a pill count of any kind.

I always get a kick out of all the Texans walking around in sweaters once the weather dips into the 70s.

I'm from the midwest and it makes me laugh, to see the french bundled up as if a blizzard was coming if it even gets near freezing
It's been unseaonably warm the past few and they persist with coat and scarf, at least in the morning,cause it's october.

Re: Come on In If You're Online And Say Anything: Part III

I spent an hour of extra time tonight getting things organized so I can
hit the ground running tomorrow morning. Setting myself up to succeed,
yeah, that’s the ticket!

I’ve got a major task to complete by just after lunch...and that doesn’t
count the need to do payroll, and a little bit of invoicing.

The stack of paperwork I have to process is 7/8", or 22mm tall.

Hmm...I think I will come in early so I can have the peace and quiet of
no phone calls, no interruptions, no sudden fires to put out...and of course,
the extra time on the front end.


Cheers,
Ian

What is really interesting are the people wearing shorts and sneaks here when it is -20.
