    Ugh... Stressed out here. I do it to myself. I could just easily turn a blind eye to the illegal things people do with narcotics, but I can't do it. I always get the police involved, and then it stresses me out. I recently found out how to follow people's criminal charges through the county municipal court's website. So anyway, I had a guy arrested yesterday. To be honest, when I called the police, he wasn't really doing anything illegal, per se. Of course I know from dealing with him in the past that he is a big problem. Yesterday, he had brought in a Rx for this cough syrup that he is either addicted to or selling (or both). He always gets these legitimate Rx's under other peoples' names. If the doctor writes for any other cough syrup, he'll ask you to call the doctor and get it changed to his drug of choice (known on the street as "purple drank"). And I once caught him trying to add on refills to a script that the doctor did NOT put refills on. All the stores email back and forth and so I know from email that our other stores have had problems with him too... So anyway, when I went to fill yesterday's Rx, the insurance rejected it because he had just had it filled under the same patient on the exact same day, from a different emergency room in the area. So I called the ER doctor on the Rx I was filling to tell him he had also been to this other ER, and so the doctor cancelled the Rx. He wanted me to write "void" on it and give it back to him (he apparently knows the drill)... And I refused to give it back. He came in the store and was all going crazy about it and calling the ER himself and acting all nuts. So he wanted me to call the doctor again and try to get it okay'ed. I pretended to be on hold for a looooong time, just standing there trying to decide what to do. I knew I was NOT calling the doctor again. But I didn't know if I should call police because he wasn't really doing anything that I knew was illegal at that moment. BUT... I felt threatened and harassed by him, so I decided to call. He thought I was on the phone with the doc, but I called police instead. So anyway, they came and took him out and talked to me and the police and I both agreed that he wasn't really doing anything apparently illegal. (By the way, he claimed he was picking up these Rx's for his AUNT who was out of town... If she was OUT OF TOWN, how did she go to two ER's in the city, at least a 3 hour ordeal at each, on the same day... And also, when he was on the phone with the ER, he had to ASK ME HER FIRST NAME... HIS AUNT?!?! I looked right at him and said, "You don't know her first name?!") Anyway... So I was really stressed about calling the police when he wasn't doing anything illegal... But then they took him out into the parking lot for 2-3 HOURS. And apparently they found something because I searched him today and he was charged yesterday for felony deception to obtain dangerous drugs. I was relieved to find that I didn't call the police unnecessarily. BUT... Then I saw today that someone paid his bail. SOOOO... He's out of jail today and I'm scared he'll come back for me. So I am again stressed. I just need to learn to let things be, but I feel this strong desire to contribute whatever I can to cleaning up some of the druggie crap in the area. Ughhhhh... Sorry so long... I'm stressed and needed to vent it.

    Mary - That must be so stressful, I honestly try and make my pharmacists job fairly easy. The worst I've done is rushed them to get a prescription filled, that's just cause I am awful at keeping track of when I run out.

    I had a prescription for narcotics once (for the Dystonia), they make me crazy and depressed, never again will I touch them.

    Mary I think you're great for doing what you do but it must be a bit scary at times. Hopefully this guy gets some help or something. It makes me think of a coworker who got hooked on pain meds and moved to crack and was recently picked up after robbing her neighbors! She was a secretary at work and a very very good one. Super nice lady with 2 little girls, total riot. She was in an accident and got hooked on pain meds (so the story goes at least) stopped coming to work and ended up being let go. Then recently was in the paper for theft. Her picture was scary! Both little girls are with her parents and she's in jail

    I'm with you Amanda the few times I've ever had to take pain meds I hate them. I can't imagine wanting to feel like that, blech! But I've never done more than drink in my life so the whole drug thing is lost on me!

    Mary, super big (((huggles))) for you today! I love that you always do the right thing, you're amazing! Honestly, before "talking" to you I never thought twice about my pharmacists ever having to go through something like that. It's usually me surrounded by old people talking about how cute my kid is and how he reminds them of their grandkids, so I figured their day is pretty boring. But I'm also picking up Rx's at 10 am on a Thursday most of the time! Probably a different crowd. Anyway, I'm sorry that you're feeling stressed right now. I can't blame you, I would too in your situation. But I'm sure everything will be just fine and hopefully he won't try to fill any more Rx's at your store. Though who knows if he'll even remember you, your store, or anything. Ugh, like some of you I HATE how those meds make me feel! I remember when I had my surgery in high school how I HATED that stuff! I did not feel cool at all - I'd prefer the pain to the hallucinations and overall craziness I went through. In fact, after leaving the hospital I switched over to ibuprofen even though I still hurt. Same when my wisdom teeth were pulled.

    Katie, that's about the age that I'd had enough with co-sleeping as well, so we kind of forced Xander to go into his own crib/room. I loved some morning snuggles when he'd wake up, but otherwise I was over it by that point. heh. I hope you guys can find a solution soon!

    AFM, not too much going on. Our allergies are getting better finally. Most of the trees have shot out their leaves (and that's what I'm allergic to), so while I'm still a little stuffed up and my eyes itch a little, it's not as bad. Xander hasn't been as cranky either. Well, until he accidentally head banged the dog when he jumped on the couch earlier! OUCH! He cried for 5 minutes and kept trying to kick the dog, thinking it was his fault, and I felt so bad for Zuul because he kept sneezing and shaking his head. You could tell he got hit hard too! So I was trying to pet him while Xander was crying hysterically in my arms, but me petting Zuul was making him mad since he blamed the dog... *sigh*

    I can't believe the weekend is pretty much over! The weeks are flying by recently because we've added a lot of activities. Monday is playgroup. Tuesday is swim. Wednesday is FREE!! Thursday is swim and grocery shopping. Friday is FREE!! Saturday is tumbling. Sunday is church (where he goes in the nursery with other kids instead of going with us) and usually we meet up with some friends at lunchtime. So yeah, we're busy. Those aren't all-day events or anything, but even doing something for an hour seems to wear Xander out for the entire day. I'm glad I'm involving him in so much, though, because he's going to have preschool soon and he's going to have to be used to regular stuff going on. He's really loving all the fun, though! It just usually results in a cranky kid post-nap for some reason........

    Thanks so much girls! I'm feeling better about it today. When I got to work Saturday, I was terrified to go in because the guy's car was in the lot. It finally hit me (after several minutes of anxiety) that it was still there because he hadn't been back to pick it up (even though he had been bailed out). It was gone when I left work that night, which means he had been back and did NOT come in to shoot me. Yay! I'm happy to have made it through the weekend... I always feel more comfortable during the week because there are more people around... More employees and more customers. It makes me feel less vulnerable to the crazy drug-heads.

    Lauren - I'm jealous of all your activities! I need to get Sean more socialization!! OT, You're coming up on O-time, I see! Good luck this time. It's CD1 for me... NEVER fun, even when you're definitely not TTC. I am happy that my body is starting to get back to normal for the first time in 3 yrs.

    I'll be back for more personals tomorrow. DH is bugging me to get to bed.

    Can bad things stop happening? Seriously! So that doctors appointment DH went to was about some of the tests they did, they found 2 things wrong with DH, thankfully they are manageable if he does in fact have them. I want a second lab test done on DH's blood cause I am convinced they mixed up his results, possibly with his brothers (same first initial and last name), who "had" the same problems just a short while ago, and they have somehow just disappeared according to his blood tests...

    I just need some positive thoughts right now.
