Isn’t INTENTIONALLY throwing a pt into cold turkey withdrawal and inflict a torturous level of pain — a human rights violation ?

My state drivers license was suspended unknown to me, to make matters worse my great-grandson took nana’s d.l. for the picture of nana long story short he lost it. We were in the hectic throws of covid, dept of Licensing closed. I went and got veteran’s affairs outreach office to make me a copy of that Driver’s license also included my social security. Card. My pharmacist at took the copy for months (7) now they are refusing unless I have a original drivers license. Because of covid I don’t have a chance of getting a new one. I paid my fines but the drivers license dept is telling me because of covid they have to send it out of state using the picture off my old dl.picture.this will take 6 weeks. I am disabled on social security. My pain meds I have been on for 10 years. I cannot just stop. Pain is constant and I can function with my meds . I have implants that have gone wrong. I need to have surgery, I also have nerve damages, spinal stenosis, nerve damage in my back, Deep vein th. Thyroid disease. Have gone thru therapy, exercises, non-opiod meds. Nothing help. My dr. Had me classified as completely disabled, no Hope’s of going back to my job of 15 years. But also let me tell you when I became aware of my lost of license I did what I could to correct it. Can you advise me? My meds are due 10-19-20. I am afraid of what will happen if I cant find a way to get this copy to be accepted the GOVERNMENT gave me a copy of the original. My script has my photo on it I have my photo on my copy. What more can I do?? Please respond, thank you

  1. I think there is a piece to this puzzle missing. Here in Michigan we’ve been locked down since March including the DMV. I renewed my license with a change of address and auto tabs online. I got a new driver’s license with my last photo on it in about 3 weeks. Either this guy doesn’t have an internet access or a credit card, seems like someone could have helped him to obtain it. Regardless the pharmacist sounds like he has an agenda.

  2. I live in a small town our local DMV has also closed down due to covid but there’s one open about an hours drive a way but by appt only. My suggestion to you is to locate via Google the closest DMV thats open by appt and get in there and get it done as soon as possible.
    Best Wishes

  3. In this world of copy copy copy wouldnt you think the pharmacy would have a pic of this gentlemen along with the script in there system? Unless im reading this wrong it seems to me this “pharmacist” would rather play “police” rather than helping a customer out with his dilemma.. I hope you find a compassionate “human” that can help you out an deal with you as a “human” instead of a “number” smh

    • Is your local DMV closed? If not, can you get a state ID, not a driver’s license? Otherwise do you have any other form of photo ID? Honestly, this sounds like a pharmacist that simply doesn’t want to do their job! Especially when you have already provided it many times (7!) previously. Or, could you possibly call your doctor and explain the situation and ask if you could go to a different pharmacy? You should also call the pharmacists manager to discuss the issue. The government did provide you with the copies, so it might be a good idea to talk to a representative at the office that prided the copies, they may have paperwork that says that it’s your only option at the moment and should be used like a regular license because of the pandemic. These are the first things that come to mind. I wish you luck! Oddly, I don’t remember ever having to show a pharmacist my photo ID, not even when picking up controlled medications for my husband! This pharmacist sounds like he/she is on a power trip! Best of luck!
