Test Strip Rant
I havn't posted a rant in a while, but here goes. I forgot to reorder test strips and realised we were down to one container of 25 strips. We usually order a 3 month supply that is mail order (another rant for another time) so getting them that way today, was out of the question. I called a local pharmacy and discovered you could buy them over the counter
FOR A DOLLAR EACH
My daughter uses a minimum of 5 test strips a day. How is anyone supposed to afford this? I mean seriously - is this for real? I did a quick search on the internet for discount suppliers and didn't come up with much of anything.
I am in shock. I feel like I have been living in a bubble. What is my daughter going to do when or if she is not insured? What about everyone else.
Please relpy with words of wisdom. I need a shoulder here friends...
