     cheapChic, I have no dental or eyeglass coverage, either. The local lions Club wil help with glasses, though. I am really scared of losing my medication coverage. They are really necessary for me.

    Went to a food shelf and got some nice things. That helps a lot.

    Always good to see your posts!

     CheapChic, what we can do is to contact our legislators and tell them how it would hurt and urge them to stop the cuts. I know it may seem pointless, but if enough people speak out, they will listen.

    Sort of lost my appetite over this one.

    Seaturtle yes I know what you mean finally got ahold of someone there is more cuts next year Im told its not their fault they say due to all the abuse the system has I think I did lose the appitite and Im now in somehow they have gotten anexirty up that is ok when the panic attacks come Im in for it and your right we need to tell them that it does us like you me and speically debra if we did not have our meds we all be in a mess I think there is more calling I just got the foot threw the door mode.
