At the Pharmacy – perfume – by Annelie Molin

5 Comments

I had used up my box of 2 ml Ventoline asthma medicine and needed more. To get this one must go to the pharmacy. It is totally life necessary.

Usually it is manageable, it works for me.

Now Christmas is coming up and the gift shelfs are stacked with products. Even at the pharmacy. But they stack it with perfumed products, and inscense. The air gets filled with what I become sick from. I went into the pharmacy to get medicine to stay healthy from asthma, and had to flee the pharmacy due to what make me ill. I had an asthma attack inside the pharmacy and had to leave the subscription with the pharmacist and run out of there. I had to stand outside in the street, and I had to shout to her through the door what I needed and tell her to deliver it outside where I was waiting. I could not enter. Becoming ill, forced out because of it, and a feeling of being banished, humiliation and illness, pluss everyone staring at me.

This is absolutely intolerable.

One must be able to go to the pharmacy and get ones medicine without getting sick from it. A pharmacy is firsthand for those who are sick and needs their medicine, not for the healthy. Those who want perfume and fragranced products can and should buy that with the perfumery.

On top of it if we take an even closer look at this, it even locks me out from buying perfume free lotion, bandages if I would be in need of it, or what ever you need from a pharmacy, and the pharmacy is the place one can buy perfume free make up. So now I am locked out from getting my subscribtion medicine, lotion, make up a.s.o.

The pharmacy should be available to everyone. It is the place to get life saving medicine.

I am so angry it makes my blood boil.

Enough is enough!

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.

  3. He he, på tale om å klage. Husker dere da jeg måtte stå ute på gata i jul for å få medisin fra apoteket? Jeg sendte melding til LDO (Likestillings og Diskrimineringsombudet i Norge) om det og fikk mail med svar om at Legemiddelverket vil se på saken. Og det får de jo selfølgelig. Håper det blir endelig slutt på dette tullet nå. :)

    He he, the voice of complaint. Do you recall when I had to stand out on the streets in July to get medicine from the pharmacy? I sent the message to the LDO (Equality and Anti-Discrimination Ombud in Norway) about it and got the mail with the answer that Drug Administration will look into it. And they are allowed of course! Hope it will finally end this nonsense now. :)

  4. Perfume today is not made from flowers but from toxic chemicals. It’s about as romantic as hazardous waste.
    More than 4,000 chemicals are used in fragrances. Of these, 95% are made from petroleum.
    No agency regulates in the USA the fragrance industry, yet perfume chemicals are as damaging to health as tobacco smoke.
