Hey guys, it’s the anon from last week with the social anxiety & yeast infection.
I went to the pharmacy today. It took a few days and a few tries - I went there twice before and chickened out, but I did it. Fuck yeah.
I got a leaflet of the stuff they had on sale and there happened to be a picture of the exact cream I needed, with the name and price. I cut it out, waited in line, went to the male pharmacist :O, showed him the picture and just said “Hi, can I get 2 of these, please?”. He got it for me, asked if it was the right stuff, asked for my rewards card and I had to give my name, address and birthdate since it was my first time using the card there. Voice shaking the whole time, I gave him my details, without stumbling over any words. No one laughed or stared. The pharmacist was pretty chilled and while it was still a bit awkward, he didn’t ask any questions and didn’t give off any “I know you have an icky crotch” kind of vibe.
Thanks to everyone who encouraged me, it was a big help. For a while I didn’t think I could do it. Now I have a small victory and a soon-to-be-fixed crotch. Boom.
