Tonight I've finally done it .................... !!
Yes its only taken four weeks of looking at the prescription and then hiding it again ...... then I had to go to the village surgery to apply for my NHS medical exemption card. (during cancer treatment I'm exempt from paying for my prescriptions)
Then of course I had to wait for it to arrive - too swiftly for my liking I might add!
I then conveniently didn't go near a pharmacy ........ well why would I? Excuses excuses I hear you mutter, absolutely right dear heart!
More delaying tactics followed ........
On Friday I went to Lloyds pharmacy and handed over my prescription. After confirming my details the sales assistant took it to the chemist.
She came back and asked if I was going to wait. 'How long will it be?' I asked adding 'I've no idea about this as I haven't done it before'
I think she thought I was a bit odd but for as long as I can remember on the few occasions I've needed a prescription its always been done at the Doctor's surgery.
Yup I don't do ill and have a tendancy to avoid Doctors!! I guess I'm now going to have to get used to them from now on!
When I got home my lunchtime reading was the leaflet in the box............... what an exciting life I lead!
So the tablets sat on the dining room table all weekend where I regularly picked them up, looked at them and put them back down again!
Today I ran out of excuses, gave myself a good talking to and after supper finally took my first Tamoxifen tablet .................
