My prescriber bent the rules about Must Be Seen In Office To Get Controlled Meds after learning I was about to burn 3 hours on public transit for our 30-minute appointment.

I'm super grateful for this, but I'm also sort of uncomfortably aware that the level of trust these people are putting in me regarding my DEA schedule II meds is very likely only because I'm white, knowledgeable, sometimes even articulate, and can codeswitch middle class really well.

Ah well, small favors. It's a nice day.
