that is awful! I have never heard of that kind of insurance...it sounds like they are just taking advantage of you
Wow that felt good to me - passing on news to you about the possibility of making your life more enjoyable without
horrendous cost to you.
If and when you get the little machine, I would love to hear how you are doing!
Oh yeah, we're gonna die now. I have five inhalers left, no insurance, and Albuterol does not work for me. My father got me Advair disks on his insurance and I'm not sure how long all these will last. But smoking is still legal in this country -I don't smoke, but SHS does trigger attacks for me. Maybe if I suck on a death stick I can die quicker and suffocate faster at least? Banning life saving drugs for the environment? I will NEVER support any environmental causes again. I was in the hospital once for Asthma, Primatene kept me alive until I got treatment for Christ's sake. Epinephrine saves lives. I went to Emergency once in my entire life for an attack and I've been my own doctor all my life. I got a virus that made me exceptionally ill and survived because of my meds. When you have no insurance you sit in the waiting room like a dog with mostly immigrants and you're treated like garbage. I waited an hour to be seen, 6 hours in ER then hospitalized for 3 days. I went bankrupt after that. I won't go to a hospital if that happens and I don't have my Primatene. I'll die at home. At 38 I'm getting life insurance because of the ban so my family can carry on if anything happens.
They took away Ephedra which used to help me, because some jackasses used it incorrectly and died. People die every day, the government has no right to dictate bans on meds just because a few people get sick or die. You can drop dead from Viagra, choke on a McDonald's french fry...let's ban it all. Welcome to Amerika the new commie country. I already sign a paper to get my Sudafed. Will I be asked for my "papers" like back in Hitler's time? I used to be patriotic and all, but I'm becoming really disgusted with how stupid this country's leadership is.
