Buying Sudafed for the first time…

So, I’m sick.. my nose is all stuffed, my head feels like it’s going to pop from the sinus pressure..

I went to CVS the other day and got some regular decongestant, didn’t work well for me at all. I’ve had my nose broke a couple times and when I get colds or whatever my sinuses really bother me..

So I went this morning and decided to grab some nasal spray and actual Sudafed. This is the first time I’ve dealt with this new system where you can’t buy real Sudafed, you have to take a little card and present it to the cashier who then gives you the Sudafed…

Well CVS has the cards but it doesn’t say to pick up at pharmacy, it says to take to front cashier, I grab one take up front and stand in line. Only to find out that, no, the card is wrong and you have to get it at the pharmacy. So back I went, where I was originally basically, and wait in line yet again. So I hand the pharmacy person the card and she asks for id, she swiped my drivers license, inputted information in and then I had to sign this things stating I wasn’t using the stuff for illegal activities.

The whole thing just felt odd, I felt like I was doing something illegal, I was being carded and all my information being stored. I mean it was just an odd experience to go through, all this because I’ve got a stuffy nose.. I think it’s a bit much to go through just because I’ve got a cold… people are stupid, if they weren’t out there making drugs with the stuff us ‘regular’ people wouldn’t have to be inconvenienced so much
