I get the brand Novolin from Wal-Mart for $25 a bottle. Their stuff is co-branded Relion and it sells much cheaper than other places. I went to Walgreen's and they wanted $60 and my local grocery pharmacy wanted $50.

I use both long acting and short acting insulins to keep everything in balance. So, I end up paying $50 a month. Of course, everything's expensive when you have no money, but it's not a bad deal considering today's medication prices.

 in response to hoss20...   What was I thinking?  I only saw the last post about not eating.  Now I understand.  May I ask:  What does insulin cost?  I really have no idea.

 in response to ICEVERYTHING...   Man, that sounds really good. Unfortunately, I have no way of getting there and at this point, anything I eat is just going to send my blood sugar through the roof. That would not be good right now. I appreciate the offer, joking or not, and it's been a while since I've had a pizza. Thanks for the response.

Dude, tell me the address of the nearest Dominos or Papa John's and I'll order you a pizza and have it waiting.

 in response to whoknew...   Thanks for the link. The closest one I could find was the one that I called. After having not eaten in so long and my blood sugar condition, I'm a little worried about walking so far. Considering the alternative, though, it doesn't look like I have much choice. Thanks for the response. I really appreciate it.

the closest homeless shelter I could find for you was 14 miles away... the best I can suggest is this link below - you may be able to find assistance from 211.org
