"Not always impressed"

The chemist does not have the medication in so I now have to wait until tomorrow.

I called Doctor's appx 8.30 am and said that I was not well enough to attend the clinic. A Doctor did not call me until appx 3.30pm, but then come out to see me.

My throat is so swollen I asked for capsules, but then the chemist over the phone informs me the prescribed tablets (which I think from a passed exp' gave me severe stomach cramps!), do not come in capsule form. I had such a bad night burning up and heart pounding in my ears I thought I was going to have a heart attack as I felt so I'll in the night and I had a severe pounding head all night, felt dizzy when going to the loo, as well as feeling sick. I can't eat anything. Had a doctor called me sooner they may have had tablets available in the afternoon. I was too ill to visit the clinic.
