Supply Company Issues

First let me start out as a PWD you should learn your insurance company’s rule about your testing supplies. I have to deal with Medicare and I also use a mail order supplier because it is cheaper for me to get them. Medicare’s policy is 14 days before you are scheduled to run out you may contact your supplier and place a reorder. This is my latest experience with a supply company.

This is from my orginial post that can be found here http://www.liwid.com/fridays-fun/

This has been brewing for awhile. I have been having constant nausea and vomiting for over a year now. I saw a gastroenterologist but all he did was send me for an EGD and all he said was it was gastritis and told me to take zofran and protonix. That did nothing.

This is the story of the aftermath.

Over the months after seeing him i kept…

Thanks for the friend request Josh. I enjoyed reading your comments and blog post when pup passed. I still miss her every time I see her avatar. It's heartening to see what a difference she made around here and peoples determination to continue her efforts to make tuD a better place and to help folks.
