Odd moments of instability

First, and probably the most important: I got my prescription refilled for the Metformin. I feel like I have my brain back. The last couple of days were really bad, evidently bad enough that Barb wrangled things around to get me the medication. Yesterday I almost didn't even get out of bed because my energy was so low.

It's a ridiculous and artificial barrier, and one over which I have no control. It indicates to me that the manager is clueless, lazy, or arrogant. Pick two.

Don't these people have anything better to do?
