Humira was approved for Crohn’s in Feb 07.
A hospital would have to order each dose from Abbott too.
Blue Cross should have been set up to Fedex from Abbott to patients immediately in emergencies: Dr R ordered it Wednesday, I should have had it Thursday.
Being paid to deny or obstruct patients their return to full, productive, good health in the prime of their lives: what a bitter way to earn a living.Â (And how are the benefits?)
To the lady at Caremark whose name I’m not putting here: how could you DO that? How could you just walk away for your weekend, wondering if I would die if you did? Of something entirely treatable.Â Would you do that to your sister? Your mom?
To everybody who contacted Caremark, thank you. Once I get better, my representative will hear from me, and so will the Insurance Commission.
Now. I’m trying to get up the energy to take a shower. (So yes, today’s a little better.) We figured out a method: sit on an overturned dyepot, since our wooden chairs really wouldn’t do.Â I like the idea.Â Drumbeats of water to celebrate sitting up.Â When I think I can for long enough.
(Ed. to add: I put this in the comments, but it’s important enough to put up here too: the woman at Caremark may be just as stymied and frustrated as me; we should pray for her in her job.)
