Another Day, Another Challenge

Today, really is not like any other day. In todays financial climate, all of us in a similar situation. I don't want to sound ungrateful, but I did not ask for this disease and the resulting dependence on the government for every aspect of my life. I have Medicare A, B, and D. D is really a joke for those of us on expensive medications. I hit the Donut Hole this month. Sevreral Drug Manufacturers have stepped up and given me the meds at either very little charge or none at all.
The point of all this is that it is a full time job to manage being on disability. I spend alot of time working on the papaerwork, making sure it is correct, writing letters to Medicine manufacturers.
My surrent concern, and should be of us all is this. 2.3% last year does not even scratch the surface of the cost of living we have endured. Yes, it's back to groceries or gas. Write you congressman or anybody else who will listen, we are sinking.....

You hit it on the head. I am so greatful that we have these benefits available to us, but sometimes it is difficult when the benefits we rely on because of a situation we were handed (in other words, most of us are good hard-working people who would rather be out there contributing as we once did rather than spend our lives focusing on our health, doctors appointments, and how we are going to get through day to day). This year the cost of living has gone up so much that it is quite difficult to make ends meet both for those of us on disability and for the average american who earns a basic wage. I am not sure what the solution is, but I do hope the people in charge have some ideas as to how to turn this economy around. I hope you are doing well. I am glad to hear that the drug companies were able to help you.
Take care,
