I sympothize with you. Before I got on the insurance where I work, I spent over a decade without, and was spending (near the end of that time) between $75 and $80 (the prices tended to vary at Cosco) per bottle of Insulin and had to buy 1 type, once a month, and the other every 2 weeks.
That didn't include testing strips, or any of the other meds I take.
And people wonder why I fully support governmental healthcare.
