The FDA just approved the sale of lacosamide tablets, which is the generic name for the anti-seizure medication, Vimpat. This is the medication that finally controlled my seizures and the one that I had trouble getting because of its cost. I hope that now that the FDA approved the sale of lacosamide it will be … Continue reading Lacomaside (Generic Vimpat) was approved by the FDA
Today’s workout was very weird. It was difficult to concentrate on what I had to to because I was trying to listen to my phone at the same time. I had it on speaker as I did the PiYo video because I was on hold with my health insurance provider and I had to pay … Continue reading PiYo was my savior today
In March I got the big surprise that the pharmacy that had been providing me with both anti epilepsy medication for the past six years, would no longer be able to help me with the most expensive one of the two medicines I need. Why? Because suddenly my health insurance decided to provide coverage for … Continue reading I couldn’t afford to control my seizures anymore
Yesterday I get a bombshell dropped on me, the pharmaceutical company that has been providing me my epilepsy medicine for over four years won’t cover my most expensive medicine anymore.
These days, if you get sick or have any symptoms of anything, the only thing anyone thinks about is Coronavirus. That makes complete sense to me because, what if you do have it? Well, you have to get tested. So, after having a headache and fever, I went to get tested for COVID19. I was … Continue reading COVID-19 Testing

Remember when the health insurance didn't want to pay for my Ritalin two years ago? (What is is now health insurance?) They said I didn't need it and they wouldn't cover it and they're at it again. Last time we had problems they argued that I was too old to take it, this time they … Continue reading Hi health insurance, it’s been a long time

Well for those of you who don't or were not with us at the time, I'll give you a little summary: After my TBI I was … Continue reading Take that health care!
Next chapter of how to deal with evil health insurance companies: First we went to pick up the letter my psychologist wrote to explain why I should have a health plan that covers more than just ten percent of my medicine, so they will think about letting me join my mom's health care plan again. … Continue reading Change the way health insurance treats us
Earlier today I found out that apparently no health insurance wants to cover epilepsy medicine. I visited my neurologist's office this afternoon to ask about the justification we asked him to write for me, the one so I would be accepted back into my mother's health insurance coverage. His secretary didn't remember seeing it but … Continue reading I have a problem and you’re not helping
Remember I talked about having to go on my own for healthcare? Well that is just going great. In one month I used all my medicine coverage quota. Because of this, today I had to pay $730 worth of medicine, and we weren't getting all of them. I still have to get another anti seizure … Continue reading Health un-insurance
Well, in the current episode of Health Insurance vs. Maria, I am very frustrated.

In order to get me back in they need another … Continue reading These epilepsy drugs
I don't have any pictures right now to prove to you that all that I'm going to say now is true, but it is true and I will get proof, I just don't have the pictures right now.

I want to talk to you about a few things tonight: 1- Seizure free for 13 months!!!! That's right, a year and one month! I didn't celebrate yesterday because it was too late when I noticed what day it was, but now I can say I've been seizure free for over a year. 2- My … Continue reading Those seizures, and something else
Everything was going great since we resolved the mess with the Health insurance, or I thought we solved it; but noooo, they want to mess with me again. This time it's not really an emergency because it's just Ritalin, but come on, do they want to keep messing with the TBI patient? Now they say … Continue reading What is it now health insurance?
