The pharmacist really made me mad today. I tried to get my son's test strips refilled, and of course the insurance won't allow the refills for a few more days. Sometimes they allow the refill before the month is up, sometimes not and I can't figure that out. But that's not my issue. When the pharmacist told me I would have to wait to get the refill, she questioned me on how many strips we use. She pointed out that his perscription is for 10 tests per day and asked if I test him more than that. I said yes, there are days we need to, and she just wouldn't let it go. She kept saying that is too much, that even 10 times a day is a lot, and she's never known anyone to need to test so much. Yeah, I wish he didn't have to do it either! I finally said "Yes, we monitor his BS frequently, and if he is ever feeling low, we test him. And he's a 10 year old boy who sometimes rushes and gets errors...and plays sports and needs to test a little more. So they do add up quick" I finally just stopped and asked myself why I am justifying this to the Target pharmacy lady...it's not her business! Just tell me when I can get the refill and your job is done! His BS have been wonderful lately, in range most of the time the past couple of weeks. I feel so good about that, but in order to keep the numbers there we do have to check a lot (8 or 9 times on an average day, but more on soccer days or if he feels low, or is just very active...which are most days). The last thing I need is someone questioning me...this is hard enough!....OK I feel better now.
