I was recently diagnosed type 1 diabetes. I also was recommended for the insulin pump by my endocrinologist. I have been using it for a few months. I am due to re-order supplies and at the rates they are charging even with insurance…I'm going to have to stop using it. I also checked with my pharmacy about going back on the insulin quik pens I was using prior to the pump. $250.00 for 90 day supply. I'm at my wits end. I don't know how I'm going to afford all this. I have a high deductible because I can't afford to have anymore taken out of my paycheck. Because of my diabetes and other illnesses I take a lot of meds. My husband is retired and we live paycheck to paycheck. I'm not whining…just putting this out there for my friends here on Diabetic Connect to listen, maybe give me some advice, suggestions, etc. I recently tried to apply for assistance and got nowhere. It's frustrating. Anyway…just putting this out there. Thanks for letting me vent. Have a great day all…And May You Have ENOUGH Today and Every Day! God Bless You.
