The Circle Is Complete

Mr MG is sick too so now the circle is complete and here we go again on the not so merry go round. Cost of medication for the whole family?

  • Baby RM62
  • My Girl RM101
  • MG RM40
  • Mr MG RM40

Almost RM250 poorer just for a simple flu virus. Chey! If got no money how to be sick? For average ppl like us, thats a big hole in the pocket. Speaking of which.... dad's medication costs a whopping RM500 a month. Thats almost as much as his pension money! Even shared out among his children, its still a heavy financial burden.

Hmm.... grumble, grumble, grumble. As you can see, MG is not back to her usual cheerful self yet. Sometimes I feel even more sick after taking the antibiotics and would avoid it unless I'm feeling really sick which I am. Last night felt the chills again. At least the chills are gone now. Gone enough for me to cook and feed the kids and hopefully, they would eat today.....


  1. ya, no extra money, really cannot fall sick! *sigh*

  2. whoa...alot of money spent!!! yep, certainly hate to be sick. I guess that's why people nowadays opt for medic card to make sure some of the stuff is covered.

    considering myself pretty lucky, office pays from A-Z.

  3. Gee, the virus is spreading everywhere in your house. You really need to take the antibiotics if you wanna heal faster, try taking at night, even if baby kacau your sleep.

  4. Is everyone in the family taking multi-vitamins? Prevention is better than cure.

  5. Ya, medication cost is so high nowadays! Last time my girl has food poisoning, we brought her to see Dr almost everyday, worried sick coz her diarrhea so bad! Fortunately, the cost was cover by my employer.

    In order to avoid medication cost, we have to stay healthy by practising a healthy lifestyle and eating habit! Continue exercise yah! :)

    For your dad, is it possible to go to govertment hospital? It could save a lot!

  6. better take care of yourself in this kinda crazy weather :(

    wish your whole family speedy recover!

  7. Whhooopss! That is mega expensive. Hope you guys get better.

  8. Wow, that's a lot of money... Get well soon MG...
