stay away from the drugstore

hubs went to the doctor today and got his epidural. so far so good. today was a day of resting and taking it easy.

While I was waiting for him, I finished up a green dishcloth, appliqued my turkeys, and then finished up a dishcloth with the scrubby yarn I got. it will make two of them. so I gave one to my friend Jackie and I will finish the next one for me.

I then I stopped at the drugstore with a prescription. that in itself is punishment, right?  well the gal behind the counter said I cant have it till Thursday. I said I cant pick it up tomorrow while on my way out here? nope, Thurs. I said it is ONE day. NOPE cant do. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
that made my day right there. then I go get the ones that WERE ready and the gal goes $269. WHAT?
good thing I have a credit card. OMG........ that is the price of the insulin. so I came home and called his part D supplement and yes that is the price. I was in sticker shock.

needless to say, I spent the rest of the day in a fog. trying to figure out how we are gonna plan for the cost of the prescriptions he is given. and he has a ton of them still............
I think I better eat my spinach and stay healthy cause I cant afford two of us on meds that is for sure!


  1. That is just terrible! unbelievable...

  2. Thats horrible. Do a google search of assistance with perscriptions costs - there may be a program or two for you.

  3. OH MY GOSH. Good ole Obama Care seems to make it more, and more expensive. We have to choose between taking meds and having food on the table and living it is a sad state of affairs.

  4. Maybe you can get a better part d next time that pays better on what he takes
