Asked my Husband to pick up my prescription yesterday when he finishes work. He comes home in a jolly old mood having finished work early and buggered off to the driving range to fuck about and drink beer.

Me: Did you get my prescription?
Him: Oh no, I forgot
Me: Didn't think you did

Later that night...

Me: I'm off to bed, would you mind grabbing my pills while I wee?
Him: Oh, eurgh you haven't got any more of the ones I was supposed to get...

Ok, so within 24 hours of me not taking my pills I get nasty withdrawal... Nausea, brain zaps (google it), head ache, shaking and flu type stuff. So he has been at work all day, comes home with my prescription and then proceeds to act like a tosser because I have been unwell all day and despite looking after 3 yr old and 1 yr old and doing the housework and running my home business, I should have cooked the dinner to.

AIBU to have fucked him off and shut myself in the bedroom for him to deal with them... and also sending him a shitty whatsapp telling him he is a knob?

hmm can understand that you are annoyed but really if your medication is that vital that missing one day has all of these symptoms do you have to leave it so late to get a repeat? can you not have a spare stash somewhere? I wouldn't trust anyone else to get mine for me and I have a couple of spare inhalers just in case.

What medication is this ?

tofutti Wed 31-Aug-16 19:13:23

YANBU. If he can't be arsed to get your pills then you can 'forget' to make dinner.

Is he usually like this?

totalrecall1 Wed 31-Aug-16 19:13:48

Why did you leave it so late to get the repeat prescription? If you were that desperate for them, could you not have got them yourself, after all as you said he has been at work all day?

He's annoying but you shouldn't have left it so late of it has such bad withdrawal!

VladmirsPoutine Wed 31-Aug-16 19:15:17

What sort of meds are you taking?

AyeAmarok Wed 31-Aug-16 19:16:10

If missing a day leaves you this bad, you need to be more organised!

Omgkitties Wed 31-Aug-16 19:16:14

if your medication is that vital that missing one day has all of these symptoms do you have to leave it so late to get a repeat?

Probably wasn't her choice. My pharmacy won't even let me order my repeat until a 4 days before Im due to run out and it takes 3 days to process it all.

This would happen to me if Dh was a knob. I'm on weeklies and not allowed to pick them up.

If he forgot or was an arse I'd run out as there isn't enough time between prescriptions to pick it up early.

Fortunately he is a diamond and never forgets or fucks off to have fun instead. You have all my sympathy. Kill him.

AnyFucker Wed 31-Aug-16 19:17:35

I think I've read this thread before

Mari50 Wed 31-Aug-16 19:17:50

If your withdrawals are that bad you shouldn't ever be getting to a situation where you are picking up a repeat prescription the day the run out. I'm interested to know what medication you are on that has such a short half life as well. . . .

LumpyMcBentface Wed 31-Aug-16 19:18:55

I would also have horrendous withdrawals within a day, it's happened when I've changed meds.

Antipsychotics and mood stabilisers are hell for this.

itsmine Wed 31-Aug-16 19:18:59

Agree with mummy if missing a dose causes a reaction I'd make sure I always had plenty in. Our chemist deliver couldn't you arrange that if you're housebound?
Yes though, dh should have stopped off to pick them up. Not sure how impressed my dh would be if I asked him to grab my pills while I had a wee, why not keep them in the bathroom then they're handy?
Brain zaps? Cba to Google, I worked in the nhs for 25 yrs and never heard if them.

Tatteredlace Wed 31-Aug-16 19:19:19

I live in a tiny village with no transport so I cant go get them without getting a taxi and taking 2 car seats, so it makes sense for him to grab them on his way home from work.

I ordered them over a week ago, tried to collect Thursday and they didn't have the prescription ready yet, went away from Friday over the weekend and then the Pharmacy and GP were closed Monday for bank holiday.

Yes my meds are important (I take various, including sertraline which is what makes me ill because I have been taking it for like 3 years) and I didn't think I was being unreasonable to think my Husband could remember to pick something important up for me, seeing as he is my Husband :/

Zippydoodah Wed 31-Aug-16 19:19:33

Yanbu. If you weren't going out and he was passing a shop on his own, sans kids, I don't see why he should not do it. I remember the days of having to haul kids out of the house to shops. Hassle with a capital H

Babymouse Wed 31-Aug-16 19:19:36

Maybe it wasn't available until yesterday? I've experienced late meds on repeat before.

I second pp - 'forget' his dinner sometime this week. ;)

Donthateprocreate Wed 31-Aug-16 19:20:56

you shouldn't ever be getting to a situation where you are picking up a repeat prescription the day the run out. You don't get a choice with some prescriptions. My MIL takes mophine and can't move she's in so much pain if she misses a day but she isn't allowed to pick up until the day she runs out.

It's done to stop over doses or selling it on. You can make mega money selling morphine haha.

LumpyMcBentface Wed 31-Aug-16 19:21:27

I can't believe everyone's focusing on you being 'disorganised' and not on the fact your husband was a stroppy toddler about not having dinner on the table.

exWifebeginsat40 Wed 31-Aug-16 19:23:17

a pharmacist will usually help with 3 or so pills in an emergency. couldn't you have gone when your husband first got home once you realised you were out completely?

I think all towns have pharmacies open late for scripts etc. I'm awful if I miss my meds so am very vigilant. your husband does need to get on board with this though.

TheDowagerCuntess Wed 31-Aug-16 19:24:31

Your husband sounds pretty horrible.

Wheresthattomoibabber Wed 31-Aug-16 19:24:50

Missing sertraline feels absolutely vile. The fact that you are taking it suggests he should be being extra supportive.

Buzzardbird Wed 31-Aug-16 19:26:34

I get brain zaps, they are not made up.

itsmine Wed 31-Aug-16 19:26:52

'I can't believe everyone's focusing on you being 'disorganised' and not on the fact your husband was a stroppy toddler about not having dinner on the table.'

No most have acknowledged dh's should have picked them up obviously. It's not about being 'disorganised', it pointing out if you are medically dependent on something you need to have a better system. If her dh is unreliable she needs to order via a chemist that deliver.

Or LTB, but seems extreme if he has redeeming qualities.

ElleBellyBeeblebrox Wed 31-Aug-16 19:27:00

Urgh I feel for you, when I run out of sertraline (and it usually is me being disorganised, or skint) I feel like utter shite. Queasy, irritable and completely untethered to reality.
