Not sure where you live but in most places where people have the free time to post an FML, their power meters are remotely controlled. The power company can turn it off and on from a computer somewhere and don't have to actually come out to your actual meter and actually move an actual switch. If not, you can tell them you've got meds in the refrigerator so can they please turn the power on so you don't die.

I effin hate the electric company!!! It's easy to turn off power but harder to turn it back on, what kind of bullshit is that?!? Ugh, I feel your pain and I hope your power gets turned back on soon.

I'm assuming it's different in other places but where I live they usually give you a decent amount of time before turning off your power after missing a payment. They even send a disconnection notice prior to doing so.

That's 44 degrees Fahrenheit which is sufficient refrigeration for almost every medication, including insulin. The bigger concern would be OP coming down with hypothermia while asleep. Because you don't wake up if you become hypothermic while asleep.

IF they shut it off generally they send someone out to turn it back on. After the disconnect notice goes out they can shut it off whenever. You have to pay off the whole of what was passed due to turn it back on.
