I told my husband this evening that I’m no longer a cheap date. Why you ask?
I just checked my recent (3 month) prescription purchase online.
(Yes, the receipt was in the package but it’s always the same so I threw it in my “doctor notebook” and didn’t look at it. – Won’t do that again.)
We do have insurance and are very grateful for it – but I wish they would let me know when there’s a change (they might have, they send a lot of stuff).
One prescription went from preferred to non-preferred. In June I paid $20 for a 3 month supply. This order – $145!
I’ll speak w/ my doctor about generic at my next visit but – if she’s inclined toward the $$$ one then I guess I’ll deal with it.
And – I shouldn’t whine but so much – at least we do have the insurance.
While whining – I explained to M that I really shouldn’t (whine) as my strips are nicely covered and that if we didn’t have the insurance, they can cost $1 each. That stopped him – “A dollar for EACH strip?” I told him yup, and he sighed. He does that frequently but usually only when watching the news.
Tomorrow is appointment #2 with the new CDE. If she’s able to address my concerns – see “Logging,” then I think I’ll be fine staying with this practice. Although, it would be nice to at least meet the Endo… I’ve spent the afternoon updating my drug list, adding and averaging the numbers in Excel (yup, I’ve decided their cute logging sheet just doesn’t cut it) and writing down my questions (I tend to go brainless at a doctor’s office – and lots of other places, too).
My thyroid is back to where it was so that’s been put back to my normal dosage.
My BP is not good so I’m on new drugs.
I didn’t have time (well, the inclination to fast…) to do the cholesterol testing so that will be done later this month.
We had a couple of turkeys wandering through the yard this morning. Haven’t seen the bear again. The unemployed son has a temporary job (Yay!!).
