i have serious pneumonia. the doctor said, as he listened to my lungs, "oh my God!". i also have pink eye. so i have two bad-arse antibiotics, a cough syrup and pink eye drops. the big kids, who spiked fevers yesterday, have Strep. they are insured. i, on the other hand, am not.
i will not disclose how much this life-saving medicine cost but lets say it is a whole lot more than i would have expected karl to spend on me for my birthday, which is tuesday.
how is it possible that life-saving meds, not Viagra folks, but real medicine, costs so much? the check out girl asked, are you sure you want to buy this? after disclosing the cost. i said, what choice do i have? ( i mean, yes, unless you are going to stand there and let me steal it or pass it to me under the counter on the sly, ma'am.)
