You guys have heard me say it a lot, medical school is EXPENSIVE! Although we were fortunate enough to go to one of the more affordable medical schools in the country, we will still graduate with a hefty debt. In the mean time money to cover our living expenses is tight. When it comes to paying the bills, groceries, electricity, car payments, rent, etc. we have to be pretty smart and frugal in our spendings. For just that reason it has been years since we have been to the dentist! It is embarrassing to admit, I know!
When I was pregnant with both Zander and Zoey I had hyperemesis gravidarum. HG is an extreme form of morning sickness that lasts your entire pregnancy. The only thing that worked to help me feel slightly better was Zofran. Zofran is a prescription drug that costs about $4 a pill. Multiply that by 4 pills a day, 7 days a week, for 9 months… It starts to get a little pricey, close to $5000 for an entire pregnancy! My insurance covered almost all of it, but they sure made it a hassle to get the coverage approved. I can’t tell you how many times I ended up in TEARS on the phone trying to get my Zofran. I wished so many times I had the money to just pay for it out of pocket. Waiting days to be approved, while I puked everything I ate and lost weight, was no fun.
