I've been trying now for 2 WEEKS to get my Novolog prescription filled. I think my adventure is finally coming to an end, but I'm going to put it online for everyone to see.

This all started when I switched insurance companies. The plan is better, but I couldn't use my current endo anymore. I didn't think too much of it at the time, until 2 weeks ago when I realized my Novolog supply was almost out.

I went to a cvs near my school, but they told me I prescription was COMPLETELY…

Our Annual Campaign is coming!

Would you consider helping by writing a short comment/testimonial about your
experiences at TuD? The main message for the campaign this year is that no
one with diabetes should ever feel alone. Messages from our community give
people a real-life, personal sense of how valuable TuDiabetes is to each of
us, how it's changed our lives, etc.

If you can, please include a photo of you doing something diabetic (if that
makes sense LOL). Please post to this group
(http://www.tudiabetes.org/group/why-i-participate-in-this-community), or message to me from my page.

Thanks my friends!
