I have been

sick since coming home from Disneyland. I finally went to the Dr. today. Came home with a couple of inhalers and a strong antibiotic. She is thinking that since I get this "bronchitis" at least 3x a year, it may be more likely that I have developed asthema. One of the inhalers is for that and I will have to use it for four months to see if it makes a difference. At $100.00 a fill and I am part of that "47mil" without insurance, maybe I should be voting for "O" care! NEVER!!!!!
I am really tired of not feeling well and if this makes a difference, I am more than willing to shell out the bucks for it.

I think we're at that age, Evy. My heart has been skipping around a lot, lately. Finally got my Medicare supplemental insurance started, so now I have to find a doctor that accepts Medicare patients! Getting old is NOT FUN!

I am part of the 'angry mob' Obama dislikes. Someone please report me to for disagreeing with the current attempt at health care reform.

I grew up with stubborn grandparents that just 'got over it' when they got sick. Grandpa only went to the doctor a lot the year or two before he died and he was 93 when he died. Grandma had lupus and it took her young (at 70-something). I only go when I have to. I don't like it. I'm not "paying" as we are military, but we are paying in other ways. It's no picnic to be in any kind of socialized program (military is as close as one can get w/out living in Canada). Anyway, God bless you for shelling out the dough when you need to (even though the meds are way over priced; it's not like they have improved the meds or the methods much to exact those kinds of prices) - and for standing against our current regime-in-command. Now, get well soon and know I'm praying for you!

jAw honey, you know I can relate after my Great Pneumonia of 2009! Take good care of yourself. Rest, rest, rest -- it really does make a difference.

And yes, I can relate to the "no insurance" crap -- when I first got pneumonia I didn't have Rx coverage, so my two drugs cost me over $300. What a farce!

Anyway, don't worry about that now -- just take care of YOU! :)

Sending healthy vibes your way.

So sorry - my asthma is terrible right now, so I feel for you. If it's a steriod (the $100 drug) I promise you, it will be worth it. I am on a a $200 one, and am so thankful we finally have good rx insurance to cover it.

P.S. - totally visit this blog - you will laugh :)

Hang in there! Hope you're feeling better soon!! I'm sorry that the inhaler is so expensive. You could try to contact the manufacturer. Sometimes, they will give you a discount if you call couldn't hurt!

My Arimidex (part of my cancer treatment) is $50 per month and I have to take it for 5 years! I just hope I don't get fired from my job between now and then!
