ear infection. a painful one. one that had me feeling pretty crappy yesterday & i slept horribly last night. i was laying in bed this morning early, just waiting for it to be 8, so i could go to the insta care. the doctor didn't even need his ear looker inner thingy to see that i had an infection. that makes me feel better, cause the pain i'm suffering right now is pretty intense. so for him to not look in there & say "nah, you're fine" restores a little of my faith in the medical field.
til i got to target & had to wait for the pharmacy to open. that pharmacist is very nice. he remembers me. i don't know if that is cause i'm witty or crazy. probably both. the ear drop prescription was going to cost $95, til i burst into tears and said that it was ridiculous. the antibiotic he's got me on is still $40. so he offered to call my doctor and see if they could do something cheaper. i said, i'd appreciate that. so he did & they could. so now my ear drops only cost $20. which is still expensive in my humble opinion, but at least i will be able to afford food for the rest of the month.
doctor's copay: $35
ear drops: $20
grand total for a very poor, humble teacher: $95. suck. oh well. at least its not double that. and now, i'm off to go lay on my couch all day watching tv, reading & napping. and letting ear drops soak in.
i better not drop this bottle or let it fall into the wrong hands. its a precious bottle.
