I had a shitty day today, so I think i’ll rag on my own profession a bit.
First and formost let me get out of the way that I’m licensed to write for planB. Thats right, I took the fruity CE class and got my dr protocol (whom ive never met, but I guess he’s a nice guy?) which allows me to dispense PlanB without a doctors prescription. I even have a nice piece of paper with my name on it that says im smrt!
I’ve seen enough abused, neglicted and mentally fucked up kids to have no moral problems giving the morning after pill. If you dont want that kid, and its going to grow up not loved or cared for and be ‘someone elses problem’ then by all means go ahead.
However, I do have a problem with fucked up uppity pharmacists who confiscate prescriptions and lecture the poor girl on God and Morals and how abortion is wrong and shes a murder, blah blah blah.
Now I have no problems if you have moral objections in filling and you give the Rx back and tell her where to go. You sir/maam are doing the proper and professional thing. Refuse to fill but let them go someplace else. You are excused from this posting.
However, if you are one of those other Rx-snatching doucebag pharmacists, please wash down 100 elavil with a glass of fine Gin and check yourself out of the profession. Actually, dont do that. Post on here how much i’m going to burn in Hell and how I dont care for my patients so I can pubically make fun of you and just hammer my point closer to home as to how much of a douche you guys are. If you dont want to fill, hand the Rx back and tell them where they can fill it. Is that so fucking hard? No, you guys cant do that, you need to make a big stink and shit in the company pool for the rest of us to swim through.
When the girls come in for those medications, they are usually scared, embarrassed, and dont need your harassment. I feel sorry for the poor things because they are usually on the verge of tears because they dont know what else to do. They dont want the kid, they didnt plan on this, and they need help. Exactly what your fucking job is, to help these people, not teach them about God.
I usually take them aside, tell them its going to be okay. I explain what the procedure is going to be and how to take the medication, and 90% of the time they calm down and quit crying.
Now if the girl comes every week to buy a new package of PlanB, I start to ask questions like what the fuck she is doing and why does she need it so much. I then inform her that if shes using PlanB as a form of contraception shes:
I dont see what the hooplah is about with these uppity pharmacist. I mean, its just a higher form of regular birth control! It has the same MOA as the damn birth control tablets! Its not abortion or killing or anything else the whackos say, you’re just flushing out a cooch-full of man-spooge and Ctrl-Alt-Del’ing the girls menstral cycle! (Did I just use a ‘cooch-full of man-spooge’ in a sentence? My mother hates me right now, sorry mom!).
If you’re one of those pharmacists who likes to confiscate PlanB Rx’s, please let me know your rationale for doing so and letting these poor girls go through more hell then they already are going through. Oh, and the moment you use the word God, Jesus, Bible, or quote anything that ends in Name Number:Number i’m just going to shut my brain off. Pharmacy isnt involved in religion and vice versa. You are here to do a job, now do it. You probably sell candy bars to fat kids and diabetics, you probably dispense Vicodin and Soma to a unproven addict, so I dont see what the big deal is. You guys probably turn away vacationers who need a few atenolol tablets until they get home because they dont have an Rx there and their store is closed (but they brought in their old bottle).
Sometimes pharmacists really really make me mad (though then I wouldnt be the angrypharmacist now would I 😉
