Thanks for your response. I really appreciate it. I'm so frustrated with well-intentioned people who tell me to just pay out of pocket. I am driving a ten year old car with a dying transmission. I'm going to die before my student loans are paid. I don't have cable. My neighbor lets me use his wifi internet. I just don't have the extra money to spare. I do have supposedly good insurance. (HA!) Ok, well, for what it is, it is ok. But you all know how even good insurance works. "Good insurance" is an oxymoron.
I find it highly ironic that most insurers won't cover lyme treatment but will cover $895 month for a prescript
ion for the only ALS drug on the market (Rilutek) that is essentially useless.
Ok, ok, rant over. THANKS
for helping. This sure is frustrating. If I had the energy, I'd scream.
PS: Anyone with doctor names, please email me. I would like to figure out exactly what I have before I get worse. ALS is kind of a garbage diagnosis, kind of like fibromyalgia and CFS in that when they can't figure out what's wrong you get the label. Unfortunately, the symptoms of ALS are devastating so if I have Lyme rather than whatever ALS is, I'd like to know that.
