Saved by the Bell – prompt by the Daily Post

Saved by the Bell

Tell us about a time when you managed to extract yourself from a sticky situation at the very last minute.


I did this prompt a very long time ago and now I have another story.

I am on psychiatric medications. I take them daily and if I miss a dose or 2 bad things happen. Withdrawal is not nice and the mood swings take over right away.

I was seeing a nurse practitioner for my medications through my therapist office. She was a traveling nurse. She just left and I was fine with medication refills, but it took the office a while to find a replacement and then it turned out they had hired someone who couldn’t write medications.

The situation was getting dire and I was starting to panic. I had only about 2 weeks of medications left and then complete withdrawal.

My PCP refused to write them for me. I was getting more and more frantic. I prayed and God has been answering my prayers lately.

Well today my therapy office called and gave me the info for where their last nurse went and I was able to get in touch with her and set up an appointment for tomorrow. Saved by the bell or saved by God, I was saved. Hallelujah!
