Your Pharmacist Behind The Counter

What is a pharmacist?

A pill pusher? A pill counter? Many wander by the pharmacy in their grocery store without fully realizing the wealth of knowledge that lies behind the counter. Pharmacist are the most accessible health care professionals, yet- the most under used. On average, most pharmacist go to school for six years and graduate with their doctorate degree. They are the drug experts.

Do you know your pharmacist's name? I am sure you know your doctor's name. Pharmacist can act in a similar function as your physician. Think of your pharmacist as an extension of your doctor. You see your doctor maybe every 6 months to a year. Your pharmacist is there for the in-between times. Pharmacist are able to manage disease states, vaccinate, and help manage your medication in many ways.

Even if you do not get prescriptions filled there monthly, they can still help you with your everyday needs. Not sure what to take for your headache? Not sure what to do with that rash? Not sure what to do with your seasonal allergies? Not sure if you're experiencing side effects from your medication? There is one simple answer: go talk to your pharmacist.

Stop by and say hi to your pharmacist, they'd be happy to help you.

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
