Thank you for sharing, especially Martine’s Dream, as I am drooling over the clothing and making a shopping list! I have always supported Black-owned businesses, but after 2016, I stepped it up even more.

I guess traffic and smog won’t be a concern now, but I’m drawing a blank on anything other than “let grandma get some time with the baby.”

So who the fuck are these doctors who’re prescribing this medication for non-proven uses rather than for people who actually need it? One can only hope at the end of all of this, action is taken against their licenses.

I know it won’t happen before then, and I hope to God a new president is elected in November, but come January, I hope the FDA, CDC, state boards, I don’t know who, comes down on these doctors prescribing this for non-lupus patients. My family’s history with doctors has shown a bell curve of competence, and the ones Read more

Naw. Amercia has always had a stupid that can’t be fixed. It’s how he got elected in the first place.

I hope you and all others get the medication you need. I could only skim this article-it’s that anxiety-inducing. My mother has lupus and I called my parents asap to see about ensuring she has what she needs.

Fantastic. There was another commenter on one of these sites a few days ago (maybe it was here, I think it was @crankylittlephoton) that yeah, they need hydroxychloroquine *for*lupus*ffs* and it’s on backorder. Read more

Why did they cancel a refill?  You would hope that a regular would get preferential treatment for this stuff.

Costco is also refusing returns. They started right after the the brothers with several thousand bottles or Purell were arrested for profiteering ($50 a bottle on eBay).

Drs are prescribing it. One dentist has been documented as his entire family just developed Lupus. Seriously, he wrote scripts for himself, his immediate family, and a few others. When asked why, that was the answer his office gave. And he is not alone. Read more

Oh, some people are going to learn that but quick. In Fla, a regional store (Publix) posted signs in all of it’s stores on the front doors and everywhere else in the store that people who can’t use (Or sell) the massive amounts of stuff they are loading up on will not be allowed to return it and get a refund. So Read more

My refill was just cancelled by Walgreens despite being pending for OVER A WEEK. I have no idea what to do since it’s one of the cheaper drugs & now it looks like I’ll have to fight medicaid to put me on something else. This is such bullshit.

Again, those pieces take longer, and this is a website that needs to more than just a piece every few days for its authors to get the traffic it needs to stay afloat. Every site that makes its money on traffic and not subscribers needs its share of filler content.  You can’t possibly be so dense you can’t understand Read more

The girl just wrote a personal essay about how she barely had enough money to pay for the bare necessities *before* her husband got laid off, and you thought it was a great opportunity to attack how she makes a living. It doesn’t matter that Joan is not your friend or that this is not her personal essay, because Read more

This piece was specifically about how she has to pay the bills.
