Here are a few of the things that turn up the heat under my kettle of STRESS SOUP
The idiot sitting the desk at the insurance office with a book of drugs and decides that the drug zdxz334 is better than the one my Doctor wants me to take. then figures I only need 30 pills when scrip calls for 90, days says this drug needs PREAPOVEAL than I have to wait a week to ten days for med

People who tell me how I should fell when they don't all that is going on in my life!!

The size that many nutritional data labels are printed, I know my eyes are not what they once were but come on a #2 font

Drug store open until 9:00pm but the druggist leaves at 7:00pm

The insurance plan that says you have to be given a script for 90 days because they might save a few dollars, but after less than 30 day you can no longer take it and you have over 400 dollars of drugs to dispose of some how, A REAL SAVING!!

The insurance company saying they will cover a certain med with no out of pocket if you order it from their mail order. Then after one month they change their mind and start charging for it.
Paying more for some meds with a copay because I have insurance than I would have to pay if I had no insurance.
COBRA tripling in cost for the last two months before the new job's 90 day waiting period to get on their insurance is over. Oh, and hoping for 3 months to become fulltime before it happens. Maybe a little of the stress was negated by the amaing relief of just getting a job.
Being told by friends and family "At least Diabetes is not Cancer." while I was dealing with two might be cancer waiting periods, within two months of learnig I have Diabetes.

The insurance telling you only need to check your BS twice a day, when you are checking meal choices/spikes/insulin doses

Mine says I only need to check 1x a day. But then I am only on an oral med. They must think I am only a little bit diabetic.
