I posted about this on fb but figured I'd do it here as well.
First the good news.... no rent increase this year. He did this two years ago as well. With any luck, it will become a tradition. *grin*
Now the bad ....I called the pharmacy to renew my pain meds for the month as I started my last bottle today. It last 5 days. The govt. is no longer covering my Cesamet..as of this week. That's $2300/mo., of which they will now pay only 700$/mo. I live on approx. 1500/mo. My rent is almost half of that. So...not so much.
Now.. there is a generic form coming out, officially, on the 11th. That's in 6 days. you do the math. David Pharmacist tried to get me a bottle through his sales rep, but, no luck. He thinks the generic might be available sooner, but..no way to be sure. he will do whatever he can to help me out. David P. is awesome.
Now, there "are" a few good things here...
1. I have a one month *oh shit* supply thanks to one of my *kids*. Many blessings on her head.
2. I CAN miss one dose without a problem. I think I can miss a second. After that, all bets are off.
I left a message at the Neuro's office this afternoon.
I am going to believe that the generic will be covered and that I will only have to dip into my emergency supply for a couple of doses. Feel free to believe along with me. :-)
And with the possiblility of some humour... if the govt. doesn't subsidize the generic then I shall plant myself outside their offices and ... scream. I figure that since I'll already be screaming from the pain and inability to do a proper withdrawal, I might as well put it to good use. The students will have NOTHING on me. *grin*
I won't start worrying yet. Check back in about 4 days.
