• 55, Desperately need hormones, can't afford! No one covers, can't use PP because disabled and on Medicare.

    Hi I am 55 in menopause. Have horrible hot flashes, haven't slept well in about 8 months, oh, and I'm suicidally depressed. Chances are good my life could be saved by hormones. But I am on fixed income and no one covers hormones for aging women! They cover hormones if you need a gender change, they even cover little blue pills for men! I am here to beg the pharmaceutical companies, research people and whoever else is involved with making the decisions to not cover hormones for aging women. Risks you say? I risk the chance of suicide on a daily basis. Was even hospitalized a few months ago. Please get out of the way and let us decide whether or not is a good idea with our doctors!
