Holy crap. It amazes me that they can charge so much for birth control pills.
Yesterday, I thought I had lost and/or accidentally thrown out two months worth of pills. After looking EVERYWHERE (or so I thought), I conceded and decided to go to my friendly neighborhood drug store to see what, if anything, could be done.
What could be done? NOTHING. Instead, they smiled at me and said I could buy two packs for 102 big ones! $102 bucks! Seriously?! Talk about inflation!
Now, personally, I care more about the fact that my pills provide me with great relief from cramps (a medical reason!) than the "controlling of birth." Heck, if I just wanted birth control, I'd seek other alternatives.
This, my friends, is crap. I feel so bad for those people out there without insurance. Free clinics are great and all, but it just doesn't seem right.
Perhaps I'll riot.
(FYI... I did end up finding my perscription after I had decided to, after 10 years or so, "wing it" and be off of the pill. I took one immediately.)
