Running a community pharmacy has become so tiresome and the amount we have to dance for our shekels it's become an absolute chore. The vast amount of red tape hoop jumping box ticking over this covid bullshit is unbelievable. It's all ongoing too. Thats on top of all the normal day to day work. Which has blown up too. The phone never stops from patients not getting what they want from their NHS. Deliveries have gone through the roof. But that started before lockdown, that's for another discussion. The fact boots Lloyds started charging for home deliveries months before lockdown is a big tell. Let's not even talk about the roll out of lateral flow tests in pharmacy as a advanced service or the impending covid vaccination in local pharmacies. It's become too much for me to take. I'm cashing out and looking after my own. Fuck everyone else. I'm sorry if that sounds harsh brother. But I've tried so hard without avail. I cant do it anymore. In our pharmacy I've not pushed the agenda at all, plastic shield went up after 24/7 mask mandate. All my girls have face covering exemptions. We dont give a fuck and try to be normal as poss. But I cant take it any more. It's too much to ask of 1 human being to keep going against the flow. I'm going dark and gonna fight the fight in my own way. Get secure and sorted, then gonna unleash a whole world of hurt against these fuckers with talks, vids, website the lot. But that will take time. Time I'm not sure we have. So before you throw stones mate, just empathise that it's not as easy as you say. I feel for you Illuminator. My daughter works in a pharmacy and her stress levels are through the roof.
