How can you provide me with the emotional support that I badly need if you do not consider the full background of my history of mental health diagnosis and treatments since 1998. This is what I was providing you with information on.
Yesterday morning I received a Blood test appointment text on the 21st of September. I did not cancel it Appointment reminder at 9.00 am with Mrs Bhumi Balani at Parkwood Health Centre Surgery A. If you cant attend text back CANCEL. Get our App. mygp.10/atgp. Then on taking my regular lot of mental health medications I saw that I did not have any sertraline 100 mg left and only 5 risperidone 2 mg left. Other medications were also short. I normally get a text message from Boots the Chemists on the 14/15 of each month to let me know that the medications are ready for collection, but no such text messages had come this month. With Monday being a Bank Holiday I rang Boots the Chemists Pharmacy Section to find out what the situation was, but no one answered the telephoine.at 14.01 pm So I drove to Boots and asked what was happening. The Sales lady said that they had been short of staff but then checked on her computer and said that there is a problem as no prescription had arrived from Long Catlis Road Surgery. She asked if I was out of medications, and she could lend me some while the prescription was being processed by the Surgery. Are they tweaking the medications she further enquired. I said that I am out of risperidone 2 mg and sertraline 100 mg and Finasteride is in short supply at home. She asked who my doctor was. I said Dr Shan or Dr Mwanche. I said my diagnosis is being changed so quite possibly the Slurgyer is reviewing the medications that it sends to Boots the Chemists. I do not therefore wish to take anything from you until this is clarified. She said that she could request the Surgery again. I said I will leave it to the Surgery
I told my wife about this and she went spare saying that I am playing games. She is obviously concerned. At this point I decided not to cancel the Blood test appointment of the 21st. but at 20.58 pm with no developments, I cancelled it until the Surgery had made a decision. I was fed up with constantly telephoning the Surgery with no results so the sent a text message to my wife, as follows: '01634 233491. This is the telephone number of Long Catlis Road Surgery. I am not going to telephone the Surgery because my enforced mental health medications prescription was not sent to Boots. I am not mentally ill. If you do not agree with me you telephone the Surgery. I do not wish to have any discussions. Everything has to be in writing. If you want the Surgery's email address, reply to this text message. I am a grown up man and free of the restrictions that I have been under for 25 years'
