I was living life in Southern California. I had a good job with competitive benefits, but I wanted to be closer to my family in Arizona.
Even though I had no job here in AZ, I gave my employer notice of my resignation and started packing up and getting ready to move. Before I left So. Cal I thought that I should stop in and see the doctor before I left since I may be uninsured for a few months.
And that’s when I was diagnosed with diabetes.
So here I am in AZ (still job searching) and I’ve got no health insurance. I’ve been paying cash for my doctors appointments, and up until today I was only taking Glipizide and Metformin (both of which can be purchased as generics at WalMart for $4). My blood sugar level has been really high since I was diagnosed, and today my doctor put me on Novolog 70/30.
I am lucky that my doctor is understanding of the uninsured stuff…and she gave me about 6 pens for free. But what do I do when these run out?!? These things are ridiculously expensive.
Does anyone know of any resources for uninsured diabetics. I could really use (pardon the poorly placed pun) a sugar daddy right about now.
