Anyway, more when I know more. Too tired to go into it tonight.

Low income and lesser quality of care
I am not ready to explain this entirely. I need some more information from Dr. Brain first. But today I learned that I make $173 too much to get help with one of my extremely expensive meds and will presumably be switching fairly soon (I have 2 months left, a lot of which will be tapering). I'm probably facing significant time in the hospital and could wind up with a med that doesn't work as well, then in 15 months we'll have to decide if we want to reverse the process. It's been kind of one thing too many and I'm really tired and frustrated with the whole thing. I'm so blessed compared to many uninsured people but it just shouldn't be that way. If the only med that helps me is somewhat obscure then I should have access to it.
