Sorry ladies - major vent here. I'm currently on COBRA after having left my job in February. I am suffering the worst allergies I've ever suffered in my life - my eyes are so swollen/puffy that I was unable to drive to a job interview today (grrr). I'm feeling like a bit of a drama queen over here - but I tell you it's true.

I had to fill a new prescription last night for new medicine to try, and OF COURSE my insurance info is all wrong - they tell me coverage was terminated in 2000. Wrong! But I NEEDED the medicine - so, close to $200 later...I have a one-month supply of allergy meds, and I don't even have the mental capacity to look into how to get reimbursed just yet. I'll save receipts and tackle it when I'm ready - but I'm so peeved today!!!

Thanks for listening.


All my best,

Sorry for both things, icky allergies and insurance hassles. An unavoidable part of life unfortunately! Hope your pricey meds help! I know my husband was sick a few months ago and with no prescrpition insurance, and of course I picked his scrips up and had to fork over the money!

I am sure with all the receipts that you will be able to get it settled when your head feels better!
