I am so frustrated I am supposed to give myself my 40 mg of huira tomorrow but since the dumb ***** at the health insurance company put my chrohn's starter pack in their system wrong I am fighting to get it fixed.  I have been fighting this since Sunday.  My GI even called them today and it is still messed up.  They put it in that the starter pack would last til november.  I dont know what else to do I will of course call my GI again in the morning but I cant afford it without the insurance and I need it for the fistula.  It is the only thing helping it to get better.

Dragonfly,
Sorry to hear of your troubles with the insurance company...seems like everyone is in constant battle with the insurance companies in trying to get their illness treated. Seems insane that due to some incompetant idiot at the other end of a phone line our medications can be put on hold indefinately until they get their paperwork straight...absolutely nuts. I feel for ya, hang in there!

took many calls today to my doc, pharmacy and insurance. I had 2 go 2 the pharmacy for 2 other meds today, they called it took me 70 minutes to finally have a supervisor contact the maganing pharmacist and then it was approved. I got the syringes this time instaed dont know if thats all they could get or if they gave me them by mistake. There is 1 other person on it that goes there for humira. Luckily I got that kit with instructions so I hope it will be easy I have given SQ injections for vaccines to animals before just normally doesnt have the thing to hold on to as big as these do. Thought at first that part had to come off too. well here goes going to the bathroom to give myself the shot
