$81,313.22 through October....
« on: December 06, 2006, 10:22:59 AM »
Wow!  Well I got my statement from what all my prescriptions have cost through the end of October...If I keep it up....$100k by the end of the year...My friends that are not poz laugh and say that I am worth it....and I agree..

And then the politicians wonder why we stress about the Ryan White reallocations and ADAP..... >:(

Now if I could just find a job that paid that much.... :-*

But I grateful at least to have access to these drugs while I know so many do not elsewhere in the world...

lordy, tcellsnaction...that's a chunk of change.

You did pique my curiosity, so I logged in and checked mine out...$15,692.18.

What can I say?  I'm a cheap date.

tcellsnaction, I surpassed that in two months of this year. That's not even with all the medication that I take on top of that. This is not a cheap disease to keep under check.

Actually, last I was only weeks away from the crematorium due to stubborness and nearly $400,000 bounced back to better than before...

Who said Vodka isn't an embalming fluid....it mixes well with high protein drinks and intensive weight resistant training....and......pure stubborness...errr....determination. ;D

All y'all need to move to Alberta. That's really all there is to it, the government pays for our drugs here no questions asked! Plus it's kind of pretty if you don't mind the cold.

At $4,000 retail for a months supply of Valcyte - just might do that.  And Alberta is a great place, used to visit there when I worked in Glacier National Park.....a long long time ago and in the summer..when it wasn't snowing....much :)
And I wished for guidance, and I wished for peace
I could see the lightning; somewhere in the east
And I wished for affection, and I wished for calm
As I lay there - Nervous in the light of dawn

don't worry, the government is paying all of mine in Pennsylvania and it's not as cold here (though it still gets cold)

This thread got me thinking, so I added up mine and it came to a bit over $14K per year. But now with entirely new health issues to deal with, I have a feeling that this is going to go up. Substantially. The bad part is I don't know where the money is going to come from. The health insurance plan through work, does not cover pre-existing conditions until a year from the instatement of the policy. Since it is not HIV related, I don't expect that Ryan White will cover it either. I suppose that it is time to put the dogs in Fishnets+Heels, and whore them out to the local gang of Rottweilers ;)
The only thing I can do straight is shoot..

Yeah....but focus on the wellness now and the $$$ later....

This is just a shot, but is there anyway the cancer can be linked to the hiv (i.e. the toxicity of the meds and its effect on the liver)?

I am just trying to be resourceful for a link for you ;)

Together, I am sure that we can all think of great resource connections... :)  Ray

I'm pretty sure that HIV itself puts us all at a higher risk for cancer. So does the fire retardant in our carpets and the compounds blowing out of our car ac/heater vents, and the pesticides on our food, and the part of the ingrediants of boxed foods that says "color Red 67 and other artificial colors" (In one of my chemistry classes I actually looked up what's actually in those colors in the CRC handbook, they would need another entire package to fully explain their ingredients if the said was so necessary. nothing with less than 7 syllables).

Having drugs that drastically interfere with metabolic and mitochondrial function can't be doing much good either. Hence why not smoking, eating the best you can possibly eat and getting excercise are SO much more important for us.

I know that one of the way I try and keep my intestines working properly is to eat tons of pro-biotic yogurt. The wolves of my intestines might all be dead, but if I outcompete the rats by adding plenty more deer, rabbits and squirrels then hopefully some sort of balance will maintain itself! the diarreah seems to be far better when I eat things with active healthy cultures every day.
