A Big Eff Off

So my psychiatrist also said trying to get my insurance company to cover Ablliify was useless.,  He said he had been down in meetings at their office representing AMerican Psychiatric Association  and the MS Psychiatric Association and the insurance company would not budge on funding that drug.  So we are going to try Geodon.  He told me side effects to watch out for and then added that they were rare after scaring me to death.  So I don’t really know what to think.  I don’t want to be trying a new drug and go off to my school next week and have an episode.  I’m just going to put my head down and do the best I can with it.

SO that was my morning.  THis afternoon I’v ebeen doing schoolwork and trying to prepare the house for me to be gone for a week.  I’m going through the laundry and sorting out clothes I need to pack and all for the trip.    We have two formal functions, a dinner at  a professor’s house and a gala dinner with PJ O’Rourke, the political satirist.  I’m looking forward to that a lot. I love his books. So that will be cool as well as meeting all theses other authors as well that are featured at the symposium.

So say some prayers for me changing drugs and getting ready for classes.  I plan to post the week I’m gone so you’ll learn more about how I’m doing in my classes and all.  Hope everyone has a good week!

    1. It was the generic for Abilify that I was trying to get, but the doctor has to fill out paperwork for it, and he said it would still be denied. He was really adamant about it, and I have no reason to believe he’s lying about it, so here I am. THe generic Abilify costs $590/month without insurance and the brand is close to $1000. Geodon with a coupon was $69. So there are my choices. THe insurance is through my husband’s work and we have no choice in it.
