    It's a conspiracy I tell you!

    I've been suffering from migraines ever since I graduated from high school in 2000--I guess the shock of entering into adult life took its toll on my body ;) But anyways, I was prescribed Imitrex, which works for my migraine pain only half the time. The crazy thing is that the pills come in this little rectangle box, just like the one below, and there's ONLY 9!! Usually I pay $30 for the pack with my med insurance. But, because it's a new year and I now have to meet a deductible before my med insurance will kick in and help out with prescription charges, I had to pay $220 for the pack.

    Let me repeat that in case you missed it: $220 FOR 9 PILLS!!!! (That's $24.44 per pill, just in case you were wondering.)

    AND, I have to take like 4 pills for the onset of 1 migraine just for it to ease a little of the pain. That means, that each migraine costs me over $100, but that doesn't include the other prescribed pain meds and the OTC pain relievers I use along with the Imitrex.

    So what does all this boil down to? The government and the medical field are in cahoots and have some kind of devious, money-making conspiracy going on. But there's nothing we can do but surrender, which is conveniently easy to do since we're already crawling in on our knees, bent over in pain. So we just open our wallets and hand over the plastic...
