Had a bad day today in fact had a bad week or two went shopping with my husband this morning cooked some dinner then had to collapse on the settee this afternoon went for a short walk yesterday which is probably why I feel so rubbish today went to the chemist for some pills to get rid of the congestion in my head probably sinusitis girl at the back of the counter came out with the what medication are you on (she looks about 12} I can't sell you that stuff without sayso from the pharmacist in front of about 10 people I felt about 2 inch tall lost it I'm afraid muttered about having an inquisition every time I need to buy something not on prescription its all true and walked out the point is I can go to Morrisons which is about 3 miles away and get this stuff off the shelf (sudafed) sorry for the rant

  • I really get your irritation! Like when GPs get you hooked on Prednisalone then tell you off for still being on it. ๐Ÿ˜ก

  • exactly !!!!

  • Dito

  • Hi,

    I know it's very frustrating, but I suppose they are only trying to do their job. I'm sure it wasn't personal! She might have got a rocket previously for selling something without checking with pharmacist!

    But I know where you're coming from! And now it's off your chest, without shouting at hubby - so all's good! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • As this seems to be a day for ranting.... non-medical here, but I need to rant.... Yesterday, about midnight, I'm dozing off in bed with a book, hubby watching tv in another room, suddenly power goes off. Assume neighbourhood thing, but apparently not, just our house. Turn off all the breakers as there seems to be a bit of power leaking through rather randomly to the odd light or appliance, and we didn't want to go up in flames. No heat all night. Get heat pump checked in morning, not that, but technician notes a partial break in line leading to house. Call power company. About twelve hours after initial outage power restored. Heat comes back on. Fridge starts to purr. All good. Or so I thought until I discovered an entire circuit, the one with our tv and all upstairs lights, and a few other random outlets, appears to have been fried. Of course by now hubby has swanned off to work. Day got a bit worse after that as we also had phone message problems, but I think I finally got that sorted. I intensely dislike telephone companies and their patronizing, well it must be something wrong with your phone....

    Thank you, I feel better now.

  • blimey my rant was peanuts at the side of yours. our switch box suddenly cut out a couple of weeks ago I had the oven on cooking dinner the washer going when all of a sudden bang everything went deathly quiet needless to say I was by myself hadn't a clue which switches to move. Had to ring my son-in-law who is a fully qualified electrician and did put the switch box in but I didn't want to because he has cancer and I didn't want to worry him. Anyway he told me what to do and it would appear that it was the washing machine that had blown everything had to have a new one.

  • I wish I had an electrician in the family. So far the only suggestion my helpful family has made is to turn the offending breakers off and on again. As if that wouldn't be the first thing I'd do anyway. Sigh. Well, have three possible electricians for hubby to call when he gets home. I have PMR and I can't handle any more stress. ;)

  • Fancy a washing machine being able to turn off your oven and all! Maybe this is the beginning of the revolt of the robots!

  • I like that trouble is I panicked and my mind went a total blank

  • ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

  • You all made me laugh. Thank you. Had a really bad night and I am FED UP,

    Shouldn't be really as I have at last got an appointment for an X-ray. Yippee.

  • the things that make us feel better!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • I don't know why I didn't read this first thing this morning. The sun is out and after reading this I feel GREAT, thank you all who have contributed. I'm sorry for the electrics problem though HeronNS. Some days with PMR, even if the cat looks at me sternly, it gets to me. Roll on Summer and the end of PMR and steroids.

  • Guess what, one of my neighbours is, as he modestly called himself, a freakin' genius. Hubby chatting with him about our electrical woes and he came in, looked at our panel, noticed a reset button, pushed it - and all the missing lights etc. are functioning again! :)

  • That's funny! But brilliant too that you have a neighbour who had just the right idea. Did you hug him? ๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Almost! We're not on hugging terms. But I think we'll buy him some bottles of local craft beer.๐Ÿบ
