Tai Needs Insulin - yay medical cost inflation

Hi - my name is Tai and I'm a type one diabetic.


Some of you may know me from RP or plurk, or you may have stumbled upon this. Here's what's going on: I moved to Oregon last month after spending my life in California. I've recently started a new job (been at it two weeks) and I'll get insurance in August.

I was planning to cover the cost of my insulin out of pocket, after my previous job's income disqualified me for Medicare.  However, the cost is way more than I was expecting - last I covered it it was 150 with no assistance, and now a medical card is still having me pay 293 (down from 600).

I'm tight on money. I'll be tight until next month and my next paychecks. That's why I'm asking for help covering the cost of my insulin. It pains me to do so, because I really wish I didn't have to, but I don't have a lot of options, other than begging money from my mother, who is also out of a job.

Anything someone can spare will help, and I'll be very grateful. I wish I could offer more than thanks.
