I got nothing, spent 125.00 to be told everything is too expensive for out of pocket and nothing they can do so he wrote a script for 30 percs and that was it, what a waste of money and hope for any kind of quality of life left on this planet.

Yeah, "Get back on insurance" I wish it was that easy. Maybe in your world but not mine. Have you ever been told No so much that you just go numb? That is where I am, Im tired of trying and getting the same result. NO, NO, NO, where do you decide to draw the line?

OH YES I HAVE BEEN TOLD NO OFTEN IN MY MANY YEARS ON THIS EARTH. YOU ARE NOT THE ONLY ONE FOR SURE.

WHEN YOU FALL DOWN YOU GET BACK UP AND TRY AGAIN AND AGAIN. YOU TAKE CONTROL BACK ASAP. YOU ARE ONLY A VICTIM WHEN YOU ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE ONE.
