I was laid off forced to retire at 61. And my life has gone down hill every since. I have been sick in and out of hospital. Very depressed.
Loss of income caused my credit to end up very bad. Used my retirement funds to help my two sons.
I felt that my husband and I would be ok on our social security. It would be if I didn't have to purchase my meds.
Yesterday I was ordering my meds and suddenly I found I was in a donut hole. Their way of saying they were going to make me pay for my meds. It is my insulin that I can't afford. If I can't get it I will only have complications and die.
Checked out the drug companies web sites and they will not help if you are on Medicare.
Because we worked all our life's and paid into social security, and never took govt. assistance. We don't qualify for any help now. I am now 68 and getting sicker and sicker.
We don't qualify for Medicaid here in Texas.
Doesn't look like much of a future.
