Well, I've debated posting this because so many of you have other things going on and it seems that all of us have "issues" lately! But then I got to thinking... this is my blog and after all of my "I hate my life" posts, you all deserve to know what's wrong with me, haha.

But, before I go on, I do want to say a HUGE Congratulations to Ashley who had her Beta yesterday and is going to be a mommy! Please pray that EVERYTHING goes well! I'm so happy for you Ash!

Ok, so Monday (and for a week or more before) I started feeling pretty bad. I've been getting really dizzy, extremely exhausted, and (as you've know from previous posts) EXTREMELY emotional. I HATE going to the doctor due to our current financial situation so I do whatever I can to keep from going. But, I couldn't take it anymore. I called the doctor and told them I needed to make an appointment. They worked me in on Tuesday afternoon (due to a cancellation). My appointment was a 2:00. It was a HORRIBLE afternoon. First, I had to find someone to cover my last class because school isn't out until 2:15. Then, when I got to the doctor I waited 50 minutes in the waiting room. I FINALLY got called back into a room and waited another 2 hours to see the doctor! Mind you, this ENTIRE time I was sitting in a hospital gown because it was time for my "ever~so~fun" yearly check as well. So, I'm sitting there waiting, naked, and I almost left because it was RIDICULOUS to wait that long...
Anyway, the doctor came in and we talked about all of my symptoms. My progesterone is still very low and so she changed my meds. She said my heart will continue to palpitate until my progesterone gets under control. I still have to take my Metformin and my Naproxin for pain during my cycles.
So, I was pretty upset because I just want to feel better. Then, I took my script to the pharmacy for my progesterone and the previously 5.00 prescription is now THIRTY dollars. That is completely out of the question! There is no way I can afford a 30 dollar per month prescription. I did contact the benefits office at work and they said it will continue to be 5.00 until July. So, I can at least take my meds until July. The only 2 cures for low progesterone: Using the cream, or getting pregnant! HAHA, I guess 30 a month is cheaper than pregnancy! So, there you have it. Maybe once I get my Progesterone back up I won't feel so completely horrible ALL the time!

Oh I feel your pain about the prescrip crap! I'm in the same boat. I have to go to my Dr once a month($20 co-pay) plus my monthly prescrip(it was $30-which I hated) and the last time it was $40...I yelled at the pharmasist because how can it go up ten dollars in 30days? well come to find out my insurance raised the co-pay for prescrips. I am DONE with all medical crap, well I wish I could be. It is just so ridiculous. We pay a crap load for our premiums and still have to pay a lot anytime I go to the dr.

I really hope things work out for you and your progesterone gets back on track. Did I read that you have PCOS?

Hi, I'm here from blogger bingo.

What a terrible day you had! Why are doctor's offices always so far behind? It is so crazy-making.

Your daughter is beautiful!
