Last Shot of Hope

Today I went and purchased my last shot of hope! I decided to call it that after thinking about how I will be so glad when I am done with this drug from hell; yet it is my only man made hope.

At the drive thru of CVS I just loved the little conversation that I had.

"Ma'am, Do you have any questions about this drug?"

Me: "Nope."

"What is your address?"

Me: "Blah blah blah blah"

"Um, (with a look of concern) it says here that I am to ask you about the price of this. Do you know that this drug is expensive?"

Me: "Ha! Yep!"

"Okay, well, um, the price is..... $397.00"

Me: "Yep! That would be the amount. This is my third and last shot of this little expensive drug."

By now her eyes have popped out of her head and she shakes her head, "yes" back to me. I bet she had a nice little conversation in her own head.

"What the heck is this for? Who in their right mind would purchase that? Is she dying? I really wonder why she needs that drug? WOW, I would hate that one. I need to memorize the name of that drug and look it up later. I can't wait to find out. She must be crazy!"

At least that would be the conversation in my head if I were here.

I hope this little shot of hope works!

Guess what? I thought this entire time that my insurance wasn't covering any of this stupid drug. I looked at the papers that came with it and there it said, insurance $1,200. WOW!
