Waterfalls
It's almost like there are these periods where our relationship is smooth and steady, and then there are times when it's like standing on the edge of this gorgeous, wonderful waterfall and just letting yourself drop, knowing that there's a safe pool of water ready to catch you at bottom. You take the plunge and you're in wayyyy over your head, but oh man, it's exhilarating, it's breathtaking, it's just incredible and you feel better than you ever have before and the water is cool and refreshing and exactly what you needed.

Sam is my waterfall.

Diabetic? Broke? Underinsured? Maybe these will help

(I put this together for a community group I'm in on FB, thought maybe some of you could use it too)

For insulin, Walmart sells 70/30 insulin for only $24.88 a bottle. They have a special deal with Novolin, that regular pharmacies can't get, so regular pharmacies have to charge over $100 a bottle. So get your 70/30 there.

For test materials: The True Metrix blood sugar meter and strips are the cheapest available that are also reliable. 100 strips on Amazon are less than $18, and the meter on Amazon is $40 with free shipping and includes 100 test strips, 100 lancets, and a lancing device: https://www.amazon.com/TrueMetrix-Blood-…/…/ref=sr_1_4_a_it…

For insulin syringes, you have to have a prescription, but you can order them online at, of all places, pet supply places. Here's the one I used to use: http://www.allegromedical.com/…/monoject-insulin-syringe-1c…

For the three month A1C test, you can go to Dr Griffin, and he'll do it for $50, or you can order two tests, which will take care of six months of testing from Amazon, https://www.amazon.com/A1C-NOW-test-kit-…/…/ref=sr_1_9_a_it… and that runs about $44 with free shipping.

I'm a diabetic who was without insurance for years, and this is how I stayed alive. I have no hidden agenda, just want to help people in the same boat I was in.
