Corrie_1: i am in Northern Nova Scotia. Northumberland Straight. I too have socialized medicine. I am presently considered "Disabled" because I can take a maximum of 3 hours of activity and then I have to lie down. What this means is I get my meds, including Tylenol 3 which is a compound that allows me to function. Without it, I have to rely on a smaller dose of amyltriptilene, like 30mgs. during the day and that plunks me on my but! It's a terrible feeling, that haze of Amyl. but sometimes, if I'm out of tylenol or the pain is more than the tyno 3 can take out, I do have to take the amyl. It also works for neurological pain, like I get in my spine. It's not easy by any means. The Social safety net allows me $200.00 a month for everything plus my $%.00 co-pay on meds, as I have eight, that's $40.00 a month. That leaves $160.00 to eat, get to appts., hair and body care products. I go to foodbank for help with food, but even they are cutting back due to overwhelming need due to recession. So, there you have it. Oh yeah, my pharmacy re-cycles pill bottles. I didn't know that. Just bring in a bagful, somebody (honest) takes and turns them into something useful. Nice talking with you, hope you have a nice day. We are in the midst of a cold snap, wow, it a virtual sauna today, just -12,we had several -30 days and despite my best efforts, the pipes froze at the old farmhouse. I had electric heaters on low, but the house is so leaky, it didn't seem to matter. Hello to everyone else online.
