After many Dr. appointment, tests, and research, they (My medical team) have decided that I need supplements for my Pancreas, the enzymes that help me possess fat are not being produced in significant amounts. They do not know why this is, nothing seems wrong with that organ except that some of the ducts are to small.
So they give me a prescription for the medication, and tell me that it’s no big deal.
I start looking for it, and no one carries it, ( I called 29 places before I found it) in fact most of the people I talk to at the pharmacies act like I am trying to get free pain meds off them or something. They ask leading questions in a accusing fashion. I am just wondering if you carry this supplement, it’s not a pain drug, in fact if you used it recreationally it would just make you fat and constipated. So when I do finally find a place that has it I am shocked at the cost, $225 for 200. Now I do not have insurance, or anything to help this but it is compounded by having to take 9 pills a day! I now have a $10 per day drug regime, and no idea how long I will have to be on this stuff. I can not afford this, nor can I afford not to take it as I am not getting any nutrition from any food I eat with fat in it.
People keep telling me to go see ‘Sicko’, I am living it, I know how bad it is, I do not need to experience others troubles it will just depress, and piss me off more.
Ok, some good news.
Cheese and Pants theater preformed at a David Lynch tribute the other night. We did a scene from ‘Eraserhead’ and one from ‘Blue Velvet’ (PBR God-Dam-It!) along with the Dead Nigger in the Garage from ‘Pulp Fiction’ just for fun. They went over very well, and it was fun to get back into the costumes and on stage again, even if the audience was very small. We need the practice for the upcoming Beckett festival performance Dec. 1st in Las Vegas.
Otherwise, I have been working on transferring parts from the dead engine/tranny to the replacement one for my motorcycle in preparation to install it. I have been working on this for a while, it has been slow going since I do not have the $ to buy some of the parts I need, and I have just been to sick and depressed to put much energy into it. Fortunately I can just leave it midway through parked in my ‘living room’. Yes my trailer has had a motorcycle sitting in the middle of it for months now, its not like I really use that space for anything like entertaining or other normal living/dining room experiences.
This week I plan to get my resume updated and start thinking about what kind of ‘real Job’ I want to commit to. I need to make some $ and pay my debts….
