For the first time in my life, last night I could not sleep..Well, the two nights I was in labor for my DD I did not sleep either)
I went to bed early, knowing that it would be a hectic day during and after work. I lay there wide eyed until one in the morning,, I went to bed at nine..
For some strange reason, I also had to void every half hour,, instead of every two hours as usual all night.. I also had a plugged nose and crusted-shut eyes alter on..
I was so bleary-eyed when I finally got up at five am... I felt nauseous and weak all day at work, asked to be let home early if possible,, my boss complied,, I never have sleep problems..ever. In fact, I have been known to fall asleep leaning against walls. Literally. As a child I fell asleep on concrete floors, lawns, car hoods, in a tree once!!
This must be the fibro raging, and stress from getting mom's taxes done, and trying to obtain health insurance. I hope it is a combo of it all..

Since I lost my health insurance, I decided to research Rx prices at my trusty Kroger pharmacy. Lo and behold, I priced my meds last night via phone with pharmacy tech and took the bottles there today after work.. They have to call the CVS mail order place and it takes hours on the phone for them, so they need to see the actual bottles for the info. I only live a few blocks away, so took them in.. The only advantage to having NO insurance is I will now get a $25 gift card for each Rx I transferred. I cannot afford my other four Rx's, so I will just stop taking them,, but $75 of free groceries is okay with me for now..

I am thoroughly exhausted, so will cook my lake perch for dinner, got the first batch of mom's and my bills paid too. I need rest.. will try to do that tomorrow.

We are supposed to get even colder temps again this weekend.. surprise...

    Check with your doctors office about getting free samples of meds.
I'm going to send you a spark mail note. Please respond to it. I have the info at work and will need a reminder to send it to you next week.

    Before you stop taking RX's, you may want to check with the manufacturers site. They sometimes have a program to help with the cost of meds for those who cannot afford them on their own.

I hope you are able to get some sleep tonight. I've had my share of staring at the ceiling in the dark nights and of course our very best hour of sleep starts just as the alarm goes off!

    You may want to check-out the website .
One of my Rx's was $84. and with their coupon, it was under $20.
I don't have Rx coverage, either.
