"For example,  a recent study conducted by the AARP found that drugs for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis aren't exactly cheap. In fact, they noted that more than half of the drugs prescribed to treat chronic conditions since 2005 have resulted in an annual cost of therapy of more than $10,000, a steep price for older people on a fixed income. The study also found that the annual cost of drugs used to treat chronic diseases and conditions is now more than $53,000, a figure that’s higher than the U.S. median income and more than double the $23,500 median income of people on Medicare"

Holy cow! Maybe that's another reason some lupus patients don't take their meds.

Yes the United States really cares for their people, bah hum bug. I'm sick to death of rich get richer and poor get poorer---remember to pay taxes all your life, but yet Trump skips his for how many years, and ends up president!!! Where is the help for us poor suckers just trying to have a life. Fed up with what this disease is doing to our lives. Sorry-had to vent. Hugs to all!

Just a FYI Marilynb...
An entire thread was pulled last night for someone spewing political rhetoric. This isn't the place for it.
