So, yesterday I took my first dose of Trulicity. It’s a once a week medication, taken via injection, to help with the insulin resistance with which I struggle.
This change comes due to my insurance company stopping coverage for the Victoza that I’ve used successfully for a number of years.
I’ve been putting this change off for a while. Mostly because I’m stubborn and angry about having to give up a medication that works for me because some clueless jerk at the insurance company wants to play god with my health. And also because I had a stockpile of Victoza that I acquired from friends who no longer use it, samples from my doctor, and out of pocket purchases that I made myself. Unfortunately, that stockpile has been exhausted, I can’t continue paying out of pocket, and my willingness to continue fighting this battle has waned.
So, I’m biting this bullet and moving forward. It’s like welcoming a new friend, while begrudgingly bidding farewell to an old friend. Hello, Trulicity; So long, Victoza.
I’ll be sharing more about this soon. For now, wish me luck.
