If I seem a little tense...

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
We no longer have medical insurance and I am out of my medication. *sigh* I'm hoping hubby will be back to work soon as we are living on a shoestring right now.
We looked into paying for my meds, but it's about $700. for a months worth. Bummer.

Holly cow that is a lot of $ for meds. Maybe you could ask your Dr. for some samples to help out until you get the insurance back.

Ted & I are in this same boat,and Ted's unempolment ran out today!I have about 3 weeks of med.s left.About 1 week of food. And he made too much in the last 3 months to get food stamps!So for 3 months if we don't have any money coming in we could then get food stamps!DAH! Life sure sucks!!

I have no idea how close to the Mexican border you are, but if you go to Mexico you can get meds REALLY cheap and you don't need a perscription. My mother does this because she can't afford to have her perscriptions filled and she doesn't have med insurance either.

((((HUGS)))) for all. I am there now too. It is sort of my fault cause I retired early to get out of a situation I couldn't deal with anymore but the effect is still the same. No insurance and meds are sky high. Hopefully, I will be going back to work part time (enough to get ins and a little extra money)soon.
Good vibes for you all.

Sounds scary. Fortunately although I don't have medical insurance here in Australia so far we get a bit of help if unemployed but actually I am a Homoeopath and have not taken orthodox medication for many many years......homoeopathic remedies are a lot cheaper ......mine have seen me through a double pneumonia, gangrene and a bleeding duodenal ulcer.

Eating for 3 months is another thing. Guess if you took it as a challenge you could go back to basics and try to make interesting things yourself with vegies etc. Sometimes on market days the fresh vegies can be really cheap and although meat can be expensive you get lots of good nutrition from the veg.and pasta / rice gives good calories - energy. Hope it picks up for you all soon!!

I hope that things get better for you soon! Definately tell the doctor your prediciment and hopefully he will give you samples - pharmaceutical sales reps give them freebies all of the time!

Your local Salvation Army will help you out in times of need. They have a food pantry.
