Sorry, but I just need a moment to vent. I'm on Celexa and of course being that it's a controlled substance, I can't just run to the pharmacy to pick it up, I have to see my doc first. This month I've been having some financial trouble and I had absolutely no money to pay for my monthly doc visit or my prescription. I've gone a week or so without my Celexa and I just got some money today so that I can pay for it, but not enough for the doc visit fee. If I can't pay for my doc visit, they do allow me to pay it later, but the pharmacy can't do that so I had to wait. Today I finally have enough for the Celexa and I'll have to pay for my doc visit later when I can.
I miss being on MED-Quest when everything was free, right now I have insurance through my employer so I have a co-pay. It's $10 for the doc visit and my Celexa is $25. Usually I can afford that, but this month I've been struggling financially.
On top of that I went through some shit this past week. The guy I had recently started dating decided to end things and BD and I got back together on Saturday night. I'm also PMSing. Ugh. Luckily I haven't been feeling withdrawal symptoms, but I need to get back on my Celexa today because I know what SSRI withdrawal can do to you, I've been there years ago when I was on Paxil and lost my health insurance.
I wish anti-depressants didn't require a visit with the doc before they can dispense them. It can be so annoying sometimes, but I understand why they do it. Ahhh...felt nice to vent.
I have been feeling better in general though. I've been on the Celexa for over a year and I feel that I can start preparing to go off of it. It's starting to be of a hassle than anything. Oh well, something to talk to the doc about today I guess.
