    Ok Girls, on a totally unrelated topic...

    One of the new antidepressants I'm taking isn't on the PBS FFS's!!! The w@nkers at the TGA and/or PCAB have only approved it for PBS listing (Authority required) to help people stop smoking!!!

    Now, being an ex-smoker myself and having my Mum die from cancer caused from smoking, I'm all for anything that will help people quit, but I'm frucking pi$$ed off that a drug that is/was originally made for depression has to be purchased full price for that purpose however can be subsidised as an aid to quit smoking. WTF???

    For me, this means I'll be paying $55 a month!!!! If I was in paid employment it wouldn't be so much of an issue, but I'm not and don't know when I will be due to being DD's carer as she's classed as Special Needs even though I get no Carers Allowance or anything as she hasn't formally been diagnosed and won't be until she's 3-4 yrs old. All we know so far is there is no medical (i.e chromosomal/metabolic diseases) cause for her issues. Things like autism take longer to reveal themselves/diagnose. So $55 is a lot of frucking $ for me atm

    I'm wondering who the fruck do I see to try to get get the ball rolling on trying to get something happening to change this?? Surely some kind of special dispensation could and should be given to get an Authority for subsidised scripts for low income people or people who have tried a certain number of other meds with no improvement or for people who have had diagnosed depression for x-number of years etc.

    Is it my Local Member I go to with my tale of woe?? I'm frucked if I know when it comes to stuff like this I'm so clueless so I thought I'd throw it out there to see if any of you Lovelies had any idea??

    I just wanted to say how grateful I am to all of you on this forum - for sharing your journey and helping all of us understand what to expect!
    This Warrior Woman Call is so inspiring and heart breaking!

    AFM I have been unsure whether or not to post anything about a natural cycle. Although I am researching and setting up to go for a DE at the end of Aug I am still praying for a natural pregnancy. I understand that it's unlikely and have had heartache after heartache month after month.... I think this is our last chance - and all has been so positive this cycle - bloods were great, lining was great right after ovulation, timing great with DH, my doc up'ed my progesterone troches, I've up'ed my supplements and my BBT has been up since then - so I'm now on Day 13 post ovulation and soooo excited.... really hoping for a BFP! I just don't have anyone other than DH to share this with as I'm not sure I can cope with the responses if it's a BFN yet again... I have blood test on Wed

    Hey bib so sorry this is such a struggle for you. I really have no idea how to help. Is there anything the doctor who prescribed can do? I used to live overseas and I know sometimes they would get boxes for samples and give those out even? Xo

    Bib...****ty situation! Could you perhaps 'fall off the non smoking wagon' in order to get access?
    I don't know why everything has to be so hard sometimes. I hope you can find a work around.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas, I second the 'falling off the non-smoking wagon'.

    Would your gp be sympathetic?

    @bib I'd either find a bulk billing dr that will put it under pbs, or like someone suggested fall off the smoking wagon.

    Do you have phi? Can you claim some of it through that?
