This year has been hard on me. Batteling with health insurance and keeping up with appointments seem harder than ever.
I’ve lost my health insurance, which means no meds. I don’t know about you but I cant afford the $1300 a month just for meds. On top of that its $150 just to be seen for 15 mins to get a prescription and another $150 to see my therapist once a week. That’s $2100 give or take a month. Not to mention what else I’ll be billed for. Oh yeah…and the blood test I’ll have to take every few months to make sure my meds are cooperating with my body.
So far I’m doing ok without the meds. In the past when I have gone off them it starts out well and then ends with almost being hospitalized or actually being hospitalized. I don’t want to even think about how much that will cost me. Inevitably I need to find something that works and doesn’t put me in debt at the same time. Good luck right!?
People are always asking why people with any sort of mental health issues dont seek help. Well there it is. The cost is ridiculous. Yet that is only one issue with not seeking help. There are many others, but I’ll save that for another time.
The latest “craze” is CBD oil. People are hopping on the band wagon with this one like crazy! It’s been said to help with all sorts of things. Everything from minor aches and pains, to serious health issues like cancer. How much of this is true? Does this really help with all of this? I’m about to find out.
I’ve done some research, not as much as I would like but some. It seems everyone agrees it works. I’ve talked with Michael and we both agree that it’s worth a try. It’s only a fraction of the cost, which is a huge selling point for me. I’ve come across a business that sells, from what I can see, top quality CBD oil.
Over the next month I’ll be posting, on my Facebook page, updates on how it’s going. They will be daily so keep an eye out for that. I’ll also be posting the business and dosage of what I’m taking. At this point it is all trial and error for me, and I know so many others who are in the same boat. I’m hoping this works and that others who are like me will get help with it as well.
