some background. I grew up poor and most of my memories are from the housing crash of 2008. So i grew up eating meager meals in a crappy neighborhood and wearing clothes until they wore out.

They will supply my Brintellix through the end of the year. The cost of B was a big issue for me as to whether I'd be able to continue on the medication or if down the I'd have to stop it for financial reasons, so this is a big relief to me.
