My Friends
For the past two weeks or so I have been going threw hell forgive the languge. For many years I had never had to renew my medical or anything I always new that my meds would be there for me when I needed them. and this has been going on for over 20 years. Well now my storie has changed sence I have had to renew the medical this is where the hell come in.
See now there are to many peolpe making dissions for my life when it comes to my meds. There is a worker the medical she say that I have share of cost
of $827 My home care work says that I don't so the worker that write out my provider checkes they changer and that person has not gotten 3 checks.
So yesterday I went to wal-mart not to my reg pharmice thing that it would be cheeper boy was I wrong when he told me mame its fourty I was happy.
but then this man stud up and told me in spainsh no that it was $400.48.
I started to cry in the store my hole body started to sweet from head to toe I wanted to pass out and run out or the store I didn't know what to do.
So I called my reg store and just got my GLIPIZIDE.

Sisson, I will do better than keep you in my thoughts, I will pray to my God for you!

Since you have "share of cost" I take it for granted you're on Med=Caid. (Are you in CA? There have been changes to the Medi-Cal plan, and not for the better for low income ppl IMO. )

I lived in CA when I was with my beloved Jem. She tried to explain the Medi-Cal system to me, but it seemed a confused jumble to me.

I'm not sure that even the Medi-Cal workers know what's going on!

Jem & I got on Medi-Cal, and our share of cost was so high that it was really not worth the time and effort it took to fill out the forms.

Fortunately I had once lived in NV, and have returned here.

Prayers ascending for you!

To what do you refer when you write "the Gov of the past of CA he hanged all the low and poor people ". That's some history about which I have not heard. How long ago was that? and "Hanged?" as in hanged by the neck until dead? I don't understand and I seek to understand.

I am only 59 and I've been on Medicare since 2007 (5 yrs). I was declared disabled by Soc Sec. because of my medical conditions. Have you looked into disability from Soc Sec Diaability income?

It might be worth looking into for you.

Let's see James where do you whant me to start james as for the gov I ment Arnald I can't spell his last name so I won't even try. To me he hang Calif as far as medical and the poor and low incom. And for the rest I got merried at the age of 16 and didn't work very much because my husband wouldn't let me because he didn't want our children beeing raised by baby sitters so I couldn't work my social any way;s I did get some form of SSI but they took it away from me after 5 years because they said that my husband made to much money which was a lie. So here I am now. take care time to make dinner.
