What #1 said. Oh and this as well: "I Sverige har vi ett högkostnadsskydd på förskriven medicin vilket innebär att du betalar högst 1 800 kronor under ett år för mediciner som ingår i högkostnadsskyddet. Överstigande kostnader betalar landstinget för." Loosely translated for all you non-swedes it essentially says that once you've paid 1800 SEK (roughly 250 US dollars at the moment) for 'prescription' medicine (and a few other articles) the "landsting" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/County_Councils_of_Sweden) you live in will pay all your further medicinal expenses for the rest of the year. Now I have no idea what your view of expensive is, but in my opinion 1800 SEK/250 USD per year is FAAAR from a lot of money.
#86, you obviously weren't paying attention to #73, because they stated that you WOULDN'T have to pay "twice in a row" since their locality covers the cost the rest of the year. And #73, YDI for making such a long boring comment that most people wouldn't read, I'm not even sure why I did.
May I ask why your mom would throw out your meds without asking you first? Unless they are drugs hidden in Rx bottles in which case your mom just pwned your ass.
Surely your mum would know what medication you're taking, especially if it is "expensive and important". If she doesn't know about your "disease", then it's definitely worth telling her.
I took it that the OP does not live with his or her mother, and perhaps was embarrassed to tell her about the condition, or felt that it would clear up soon and was not worth worrying her over. I know that my own mother will practically have a panic attack, should I tell her about any health problems that I'm having. While I'm very open with my mother, I can easily imagine a man not being eager to discuss male-specific health problems with his mom. Like say, an enlarged prostate?
"very expensive and important medication". Yeah that didn't sound dodgy at all.
That's my assumption. And I don't ever tell my family when I'm sick. They're ridiculous worriers, the whole lot of them. If I were on medication that controlled the problem, I wouldn't tell them because they'd freak out even if it were something minor. I also assume the OP doesn't want to be pitied or babied for being somehow ill. As long as the OP was paying for them, and they were legal drugs, I say FYL indeed!
You're a dick. Go fuck yourself. I'm not kidding. Women have every right to have sex and protect themselves against unwanted children. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess that you are male and/or just plain stupid so you might not understand the fact that women can enjoy sex too, and they don't have to be whores to do so. You wouldn't call a man a slut or a whore or any kind of derogatory term because he was buying condoms. In fact, you'd probably congratulate him for getting laid. So knock it the fuck off with your goddamn double standards.
Knock it off with your assumptions, GreenAlbatross. For all you know xandervincent is just an intolerant Catholic prude who would, indeed, call a man a slut or whore for buying condoms. And xandervincent, women can use birth control pills for many reasons besides actual birth control - such as controlling an abnormally heavy flow which can actually be harmful to your health. Whether OP is on the Pill or not - and I doubt s/he is, because who would mistake the Pill for illegal drugs? - you're an idiot.
I do apologize. I lost my temper. But it is commonplace in our society, especially in fundamentalist Christian and Islamic sects, to place more blame and harsh criticism upon the woman for sexuality, birth and prevention thereof. Between those tendencies and irrational outcries against all forms of birth control and abortion under any circumstances from conservative fundamentalists, I tend to lose patience with people who spit their epithets in any context for any reason.
