    BiBV if your drug has been out for awhile there should be a generic brand. If it's relatively new (I think it's under 20 years old) then patents apply and the developing company has the exclusive right to sell it. That of course doesn't mean that it can't be added to the PBS list. Just that the government will likely have to pay more for it. Not their favourite thing spending money (except on wage rises for themselves) but if there is enough benefit (like a drug that is way more effective than anything available currently) or enough of an outcry they will add it. Celebrex was one of those 'outcry' cases. The government paid a lot more for it than they do for most drugs because so many people wanted the 'miracle' cure for arthritis. Mental health being one of the most common illnesses in Australia you would think there would similarly be massive support for adding your medication to the PBS. Hopefully they are already considering it and after July it will be a whole lot cheaper.

    Thank you ladies for your support today, especially @Infinity for coming by and thinking of me.

    I don't know what to say really.

    It has just been the most terrible, terrible day. Aside from the fact that I'm not holding my precious baby in my arms as I feel I should have been, so many other things have gone wrong today.

    I don't know how I am going to move forward from here to be honest. I don't know what to do.

    I think some days it's an achievement just to breath in and out. It's definitely one of those days. 😦Try not to think about what's ahead for now, just take care of yourself!

    I was up lastnight with vomiting and the runs. I feel like a wrung out rag. I was running DS's bath and looked at my face in the mirror and it was covered in bright red hives, 5 mins later I was glued to the loo and vomiting in the sink with DS and furry baby sitting on the bath mat watching me and chatting at me for an hour. Question like this being fired at me...DS "what colour is vomit mum?". Me struggling to speak "the colour of what ever you ate last sweetheart". DS "so if you ate biscuits with sprinkles on them your vomit would be the colour of the rainbow?". I was so damn ill.
    And I'm so sorry I'm really behind with the girls on here, my BH inbox and personal emails.

    Frucking Gastro!!!

    Hope you're feeling a little bit better by now Luv

    Don't worry, I'm behind too...been one of those daysxo

    Oh fruck it Luv, I am sorry to hear that!!!

    May I ask what the point is of staying on the meds?? It just seems to be delaying the inevitable to me???

    Take care Luv and I'm so sorry it's happened again!! So frucking unfair!!!
