Story #14 - Why do pills have lactose?
"I have never taken any pain pills up till three months ago. Scratch that, except for Aspirin on occasion, I have never taken any pills before."
"They all contain lactose. And if you're like me and have a problem with lactose, it just affects your body."
"There's only one solution then."
"Don't get hurt."
"... Are you serious?"
"You can get injured any time."
"I don't know what to tell you."
"You can search for a different product, you can say that the pharmaceutical system will find something different, you can say that you'll tell my doctor about why she isn't giving a different prescription."
"Yeah, well, I hate to break it to you, but the pharmaceutical system doesn't really care about you and your lactose intolerance. It only cares about the moolah. Why do you think there's no cure for cancer?"
"People wouldn't have to get chemo and get sick doing it."
"Yeah. You take chemo. Chances are 50/50 anyway. Plenty of people die from that crap. And then it takes a while before you can move and eat properly. You end spending a lot of money and get the end of stick, in a way."
"I suppose, yeah."
"And to answer your question in a different way, you should go to the doctor and have her give you something different for pain, or whatever. If she's that incompetent, change your doctor, or your clinic. Nobody gives a damn if you spend money on pain pills that give you pain as well. Man up and stop complaining. Now go and tell her."
