It is only in sorrow bad weather masters us; in joy we face the storm and defy it.
so here's a little something for you. i have a free email address with yahoo -- and you know when you go to sign in (i know msn has this too), there will be links and pictures for little articles? kind of general interest stuff? well today, there was one that said something to the effect of 'studies show there are major differences in price between pharmacies'. and i am thinking, holy cow! if you didn't know that, you need to come be my shadow for a day! i will teach you the ways of the pharmacy! i have learned a few things i never cared to these past 4 years:
1) lots about drugs and pharmacies and drug prices (they are ridiculously high, it takes years for the drug patents to expire...)
2) waaaaay more about migraines and the brain than i ever dreamed possible.
3) even more about insurance than i learned while *working* for an insurance company.
my understanding (so i just don't talk ABOUT pharmacy prices but actually say something useful in this entry) is that Costco and Sam's Club have the best prices. without a membership you can still use their pharmacy. but if you don't feel comfortable doing that, walmart has the same prices as Sam's Club. however, my experiences with their customer service have been....less than stellar. just thinking about it makes me want to gouge my eyes out.

Muum had this to say:
hmm, I see, you want to gouge your eyes out?? Well, I think I can write you a nice prescription for a verrry expensive medication that will have you feeling less 'gougy' in no time!
