It’s Finally Here

Thank you to everyone who gave me suggestions about my prescription!

I did some calling around and found that the pharmacy I had randomly chosen was charging 7x what a neighboring pharmacy was and that is why my claim kept being denied. I called my doctor and asked if she would call the prescription in to the other pharmacy, and she said yes. Within half an hour I got a call back saying that my medication was waiting at the new place and would only cost me $3.00 for a two month supply. Suddenly treatment is no longer “medically unnecessary”. Yay.

The elusive box of medicine.

Maybe now I will be able to get back to a normal life where I don’t have to be afraid of lights or air conditioning. 👍

Thank you again, everyone!

Now that that’s settled, can we go back to talking about me?

  1. OH MY GOSH! YAY! I have joy-tears in my eyes! I am so happy this worked out and so quickly! I was hoping and hoping it would! I’m hoping and hoping it does what you need it to do!

    And now…back to our regularly scheduled programming…TOBY!!! 😀 😛
    (((HUGS))) 🙂 ❤️

  2. Yay! So happy for you! Medical bureaucracy takes some persistence, but it can be worth it, This is why even small medical offices usually have a full time employee working in authorizations. Insurance companies put up a lot of barriers that make it hard for doctors to do their jobs and for patients to get their medical testing and meds. I believe that’s why it’s long been said that there are three people/entities in the exam room: the patient, the doctor and the insurance company.

    About the vitamin D. I can’t say I’ve seen a measurable improvement, however nothing is worse. My levels as of last blood draw are just marginally into the normal range, I know someone with their numbers in the 50s and they aren’t exactly a chipper person. I’m pretty sure moods, personalities, etc. have a base level that is set and there isn’t necessarily a wide variance from that, and even the sunshine vitamin won’t help. So upbeat, happy, funny people tend to mostly be that way. While serious, solemn, and even glum people tend to be that way. I don’t think a vitamin can change that. However, that’s just my opinion.
    Vitamin D is a large factor in bone health and cardiovascular function, so even if one doesn’t change moods and career paths to become a cheerleader for a clown circus your health still is improving in quiet ways.

    As for me physically feeling better. I would say yes, but I’ve had other medical issues that were dealt with and there’s a good chance having those taken care of is what has allowed for the improvement.

    I hope you dry eye gets better! I must have missed the post about your eyes being light sensitive. But I did read about you sleeping with your eyes open. I hope that improves, too. I’d be curious about your vitamin D levels. You look so pale and bruised. Toby should be comforting you! Tell him to get to it!
