I have been chased out of a shopping centre (mall) by a women (I assume) screaming at me all the way out of the centre, I assume they were upset with me very discreetly bolusing for my meal I was about to eat, I couldn't explain to them, because I don't think they could speak English, but they weren't interested in listening. On another occasion one of their'friends' had security throw me out for the same offence. I don't know how they could even see, the only thing that was viewable was the blue pen cap. The local council (in Victoria they service a number of suburbs and all they do is Garbage collection, run swimming pools and a few health centres run by nurses and social workers) where I have to hand in my full sharps containers and get empty ones, they are really kind, nice and empathetic, until they find out you are diabetic and not an illicit drug user and then the abuse starts and I mean abuse. They also then put on gloves to hand over the new empty sharp container, up to that point they would give you as many as you want, but diabetics only get one and very reluctantly at that. Fast forward to yesterday:- I travel for work. I return home every 2nd weekend, so I travel with supplies for 3 weeks. Work decided that I won't return home for 5 weeks. I found the closest bulk billing surgery (that means they only charge the government rebate). I told the Dr I needed a prescription. That started a tirade, it's illegal in this state and especially in the CBD of Brisbane to prescribe Oxycontin... After 5 mins I interjected as he was onto the health lecture and I explained that all I wanted was insulin. Then it started again "Insulin is a very dangerous drug and can easily kill. I eventually convinced him that I was Diabetic and as soon as I had managed that he was great, he told me to pull my chair around so I could make certain he was prescribing the correct 'container', I use prefilled pens. $83 later, the most expensive GP visit I have ever had I have my prescription in hand, so much for bulk billing. To make things more difficult my temporary office has just been renovated and we moved in yesterday. The toilets are really well lit everywhere, but are almost dark in the cubicles with a blue tinged light (male toilets). I have now wised up, I'm a junkie when at the council and behave like a junkie when not at home. I have plenty of distilled water and alcohol wipes as the council give them to me as I'm now a well behaved 'junkie'.
