- Wedding: September 2011
I was diagnosed as Gestational Diabetic on Monday. I had a meeting with an Endocrinologist on Fri and received my meter. I was given a script for strips and lancets to be filled. Well when I went to the pharmacy my insurance apparently didn’t cover the meter I was given. So I had to call my insurance company. Very rude guy just kept saying call this number for an approved meter. So after arguing with him I call the numbers. One number was not working over the weekend the other was. So then I hear my new meter will be in some time next week, they cannot let me get one from the pharmacy. I lost it. I am on the phone in hysterics with this woman because I can’t test my sugar, thankfully she was very sympathetic. Oh and the test strips were $100 that we just don’t have extra right now. Since I am just watching my sugars I am just learning what makes it spike and keeps me even. Thank goodness for Fiance who calls my dr and tries to see if there is anything they can do. Mind you it is Sat. So they tried but were not able to and now we wait until Monday. They should be able to get a pre auth for the meter I was given.
Two weeks till the wedding and I am stressed as all get out, and it was just the straw that broke the camels back. I didn’t calm down until after we were home and settled in for a bit. I am normally so even keeled. Please tell me I am not the only one who loses it over something small like this.
