drug seeker fail
What is lower than being a failure as a drug seeker?
Lets set the scene: You have a headache. Never had one before and IT IS SO BAD. "I don't know what's wrong with me!!" (Cue look of alarm). You had even gone to your doctor and were given a non narcotic prescription which you tried....but alas, you had what could only be described as an anaphylactic reaction that involved your throat closing up. Did you seek help with your anaphylactic reaction at the nearest ER? No you went home, drank a lot of fluids and it resolved on its own. Wow..
Do you have any allergies? Why of course you do and they are all to the medications that are a non-narcotic choice for pain. Here's the thing: You have the same anaphylactic throat closing thing with all of them. You tell me about 8 of them and state "I have more but I can't remember what they are"...
You are taken back to a room where you tell the NP that the headache may have resulted from the terrible fall you took at work (the plot thickens). By the way, you say, "I work in the medical field". So you couldn't possibly be drug seeker/surely you'll be sympathetic because of that (the whole comraderie of medical workers thing)/I know what I'm talking about when it comes to this allergy idea.
You really need to refine your presentation.
