Ok, I haven't had insurance since I was 18, and it's been a real struggle for both my parents and myself trying to come up with the money to buy all the supplies I needed, my parents never let me do without. Well, a few weeks ago, I applied for 2 different programs, 1 that will provide my lantus for a year and the other that will provide my novolog for a year, after a year I can reapplly. Well, I just found out I got approved to receive my lantus!!!! YAY! My first 3 month supply of lantus is sitting at my endo's office right now waiting on either me or my mom to go pick it up. We're gonna get it Monday when I go for my appointmen!!! I'm seriously soooo excited. We're still waiting to hear from Novo Nordisk (I believe that's the program), but I'm hoping since I got approved for one, I'll be elligible for the other, which can take up to 4wks to process. What's really awesome is that my birthday is tomorrow, what an awesome birthday present to know that we won't have to come up with the 3600 dollars that I spend each year for the lantus alone. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
