#4: For a $20 Copay...

From late November, 2008.

From the week of January 12, 2009. Yes. It got so bad, so fast.

This sat at Walgreen's for a week, waiting for me to bail it out for a $20 copay. They're a different kind of pain patch, with a local topical anesthetic called Lidocaine. Very expensive - but my new Medicare HMO actually covers them for just a $20 copay... if you have it, that is.

All dressed up and Places to Go. These topical patches are a vital ingredient in my arsenal, one that can make the difference between posting and silence, or getting my meds picked up or not.

Just in case there's any doubt whether I'm happy about getting these patches. If anyone was wondering, and all.
