Yes this Bipolar is on her soapbox again.......I got my statement from m y insurance company today about how much money has been spent on my behalf for my meds last month.......I am on Medicare as I am on Social Security Disability....Iam one of the lucky lucky few who can afford my meds with low copays.......there are so many who cannot whether it be mental illness meds or other types......but it seems that meds for those of with mental illness are being robbed.....raped.....abused......forgotten.......and just plain not given a shit about.......and i for one am so damn sick of it.......I tried to start a petition here but the powers that be stuck it in marketplace......the people in Washington that make the rules need to damn well make some.........the drug companies need to be stopped from making these huge profits off the backs of sick people......no matter the illness........just let me give you a rundown for a month of meds......Requip...71.65......Topamax....167.94.....Abilify...369.09....

Seroquel....843.16....Norvasc.....27.92......Asmanex....112.12.....

the grand total for a month is 1591.88.........if I was one of the unlucky ones out there who did not have good insurance I would not have my meds.....I would be unstable.....in the hospital most likely........what is wrong with this picture........a hell of alot don't you think.......are you one of the millions who do not have insurance........are you one of the millions who are struggling to pay high rx prices or even going without your meds......ladies speak up and let me hear what you have to say........I know you all have something to say,......I cannot be the only one who is outraged at the drug companies.......they are gouging.....raping.....it is a damn disgrace.........

as always........peace and love
