The meds

The medicine my doctor prescribed for me is, as he said, "expensive."  Well, I checked out what that meant, and according to CVS, the amount of pills I need (360) costs...ready for this...$2,300!!!  I am supposed to take four pills a day.  So, not only does it cost more than my rent, it also has horrible side effects.  My dad doesn't want me to take it.

THAT IS A CRAZY SUM OF MONEY INDEED. But your health comes first so it's worth it.

That's just the pills. I still have to stick meds up my ass twice a day! UGH!!! And the pills have awful side effects.

Any idea what caused the ulcerative colitis? I'm just curious because it's not usually a condition brought on by ED shit...

Sorry. That comment was nosy. I just realized it.

I didn't think it was nosey.

I have insurance but I'm not sure what my prescription coverage is. I never needs meds for anything.
