I was in a car accident last year and suffered a back and neck injury, along with a nasty bruise on my leg. I was sent by ambulance to the nearest hospital, and upon leaving, was given a prescription for pain medication and a “fare thee well.” When speaking to my nurse, I had specifically requested a prescription for a non-narcotic pain reliever, as I have concerns about becoming dependent on medicine, yet when I investigated the prescription I had been given, I was annoyed to learn that my request had been ignored, and I had been prescribed exactly what I had not wanted.
