I screwed up

I’m here to tell you that I’m far from perfect as I make mistakes quite often.

This morning,  I was smacked in the face with another mistake I made.  Gavin is out of refills on his Lithium and I was just at Dr.  Reynolds office a few days ago.

Dr.  Reynolds even made it a point to ask me if I needed any refills for Gavin. I thought we had refills left on the Lithium but I was very wrong.

This is day 2 with Gavin off his mood stabilizers.  Thankfully,  we can get them called in on Monday and at least Gavin in doesn’t have school tomorrow. 

I’m not sure if a few days off his meds will throw him off course or not but fact that I even have to ask that questions frustrates me.

Let this be a lesson to one and all.  Make sure to check out the refill status prior to going to an appointment.  You don’t want to be in a situation where your child doesn’t have his much needed medication because of a simple oversight.

Don't be too hard on yourself, we've all done that at one time or another, I'm sure. You've got your hands full, keeping up with Rx's is just one more thing on a long list of things you're responsible for. Can you set up the Rx's for automatic refills? Maybe that will mean an automatic call for refills when needed?


I have done that before & it annoys me to no end! It is so easy to do & I have no idea how you manage 3 kids. It is a lot of work with one. Now when I fill the pill box I check every week, how many pills left, how many refills left and make any calls right away!! Hope he does okay.

your pharmacy would probably have given you a few to get by till the dr refilled it. it is not a controlled substance.
