the end might be near?
« on: October 15, 2012, 03:32:30 PM »
so due to asthma I was in the hospital till this an hour ago or...this will more than likely happen more often due to the lost of a key medicaiton that I needed. The loss of it was due to finical reasons the copay for hte medication is 440 for one dosage,when I have to go in every two weeks for it. I say copay because the medicare insurence plan I have covers 90% of the cost which is 4,800 give or take for one dosage.


So without the shots my life span drops down to whenever I have an asthma attack that kills me,however I am going to my lung doctor next week to see what I can do about the shots and see if a lung transplant is a possiblity.

WHat state are you in?

Have you filed disability?

Is there another med they can substitute?

Between everyone here I'm sure we can research something for you online.

I'm already on disablity,thats how I get the medicare,this is the drug that I was taking http://www.xolair.com/xolair/index.html  wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omalizumaband becuase of the fact that it is part of a class of asthma drugs known as monoclonal antibodies, there wont be a generic version ever due to current laws.

Can I help in any way? Letting someone probably die is not okay.

would allergy shots in combination with other asthma meds help?  It's all  I can find.

The article referred to immunotherapy via allergy shots if that helps

 :bigeyes ... that F-ing blows.  Life is not fair, and neither is "health" care.


Move to a desert (?)
Move to a farm (?) (animal dander gives immuno-system something else to do)

Ask your Docs / Nurses if they are fans of Prince the 80s pop star.
Then sing to them (badly is o.k.) the entire lyrics to:  "I would die for you."
... with an empty bottle of the meds in your hand.  Drop it at the end.

I agree with the entire first part.

Desert doesn't work as well anymore, because all of the people moving out there wanted lawns, so they irrigated the desert, granting it some of the very humidity that they wanted to get away from. Allowing plants to grow that don't belong there. Including plants that people were trying to get away from.
Nope, desert doesn't work as well anymore  :banghead

This is going to sound disgusting but have you heard about parasite therapy for allergies?

If it becomes super desperate you could always try and get to the UK, grab a job and get treatment from the NHS. Certainly better than dying if you manage it...

they've moved forward since that article.  Ask your doc about it.  I know it's disgusting, but if it keeps you alive...

i can't offer much more than spiritual type support, but feel free to contact me if you are wanting something in that vein. this may sound weird, but, do you perchance feel that it is your time? or feel contrariwise?

Very interesting info ... so I tried googling:

Oh and Bhu, there's a link to Kitties in there too.
