ARGH!

I got a letter today from the insurance company that they weren't going to cover my Lamatcil.  Mind you, the generic is on their formulary but only as an anti-seizer medication.  It seemed to be working too.     That means, we'll have to find another drug that may not work as well for me.   That's what happened before.  Prior insurance wouldn't pay for the Lexapro when I was on it at the dosage I needed.  Mind you, that was years ago and it didn't do anything but alleviate the depression.  When I crash again (and I will) I don't know what I will do. 
 
I just want to scream and hurt something.  But I won't hurt anything. I just don't know how to deal with this frustration without bottling it.   I don't know how to deal with any emotion without bottling it.   No wonder I'm numb.

Insurance companies really tick me off. I had to fight for the Lamictal and I did because it was the first thing that really started to help. My pdoc had to write 3 letters and they finally will cover it. The Lithium they covered. Don\'t you kind of wish that someone on that board of directors who make these decisions had bipolar for a week. I have always said I would never wish this on anybody but just for a week so they can see how we feel. I know you have heard it 100 times but walking does make you feel better and I should practice what I am preaching. Hope you have a good day. Naomi xo

My problem is I live on a major road and there is no sidewalks. Just up the road, a family was killed when they were plowed in the side of their car a few years back on this road.

Besides, although I can walk a little, being as overweight as I am, it starts hurting quickly.
