Poster responded that she had to pay $400.00 out of pocket for an Epi pen. Some of the comments made on this feed, made my stomach turn. I unfriended her and moved on. Then I got a private message from someone that read through the feed and wanted to let me know how sorry she was that this was posted and how wrong it all was.
Because I unfriended her, I could no longer see the feed. However, I was told that I was really thrown under the bus, and there was even a comment that “Maybe the junkie will die on the 13th OD and save some money.”
We must SPEAK LOUDLY! Things must change. Addiction is a disease, not a moral problem. We must educate these people. I am still sickened by this, but know that we have so much work to do so that those “Junkies” get the medical help that they need without the judgement that they now get.
