Seven Hundred Dollars

pillSeven hundred dollars every 30 days.

That’s how much – with health insurance – one medication costs for my husband.

And that number does not include the other three that he takes.

Seven hundred dollars every 30 days to have someone begin to feel the depression lift.

Seven hundred dollars every 30 days taken off of the budget for food and other essentials.

Seven hundred dollars every 30 days which is over 1/3 of his social security check.

Seven hundred dollars every 30 days that takes the edge off the happiness because he knows the money is taken away from other needs and wants.

Seven hundred dollars every 30 days for the chance to feel better.

  1. Crazy. I must admit I don’t fully understand depression. I have had moments in my life where I was depressed, but when I see people struggling still depressed after years — I realize I cannot even grasp what they are going thru… It is a cruel, cruel state for someone to go through and all that someone’s loved ones….

  2. It is horrible how much medications go for in the US. But happiness and health are worth every penny (unless you feel like traveling to Asia, Mexico, or Canada and get them cheaper and making a vacation out of it).

What do you think?
