There's a reason for medication

I currently have three prescriptions going. One is for high cholesterol, one for diabetes, and one is an antidepressant. I also have no health insurance, so my monthly medication costs are somewhere around $240-300.

Being unemployed and in debt makes that a little difficult. So I made a decision to cut back a little.

Probably not the best idea.

The cholesterol medication was an easy one. My cholesterol is not that high, and with a little more careful eating, I'm pretty good. The disbetes medication-- well, not quite so good, I cut my dose in half which was a compromise, but I'll be out by wednesday, and the unemployment check won't be here until next week. So I'm gonna have to be careful for a couple days.

The antidepressants are another matter. Missing a day can make me really nuts, particularly during periods of high stress, which is pretty much my life in general. Today, I got really cranky about small stuff. Luckily I was able to recognize it and let Barb know, and cut myself off.

Not having eaten anything yet today isn't helping either.
