Thich Nhat Hanh would be sad if he knew what I did today. I was hoping that I would have health insurance by October, but that didn’t happen. I still don’t have health insurance, but that will change soon. The person who has advocated for me has finally made the stubborn state officials see the error of their ways. I am eligible for the more affordable state insurance program!
However, I am not in the system yet, and I need to refill my prescription now. 😦
I knew that I was about to throw down some serious money for this medicine, but I didn’t have a choice. I needed to drown my sorrow by eating some pasta. This goes against the principles of mind-body wellness. You shouldn’t use food to resolve your emotional issues.
I finally got the courage to go to ask the pharmacy lady for a prescription refill. When she asked about insurance, I had to tell her that I didn’t have any at the moment and that I was between health insurance plans. She looked at me with what I thought was pity and mentioned that it would be very expensive. I thought “I know pharmacy lady. I know.” While I had the opportunity to change my mind, I ordered a ten-day supply instead. It is my hope that I will have my insurance card by the time I need to refill my prescription again. Do not worry pharmacy lady, I will get this problem solved soon. I don’t need your pity.
