Sorry to hear your medication is so expensive. Have you tried 

In my blog

is the deal called free gas and you could check to see if it helps. 

There is a place called microgiving

I know of a couple people who have used it.

Good luck

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.
