More than I can chew???

Finally made it to the post office to pick up the package that was too large for my box. It was what I suspected it was the new material from LongRidge Writers. Now I have assignment 4 due by March 14th and I need to refresh myself with what I've done in the past. The old assignments are long gone as well as the old material, luck has it they updated so I have all new stuff.
But now to knuckle down and read, write and still find tie to unpack. Ummmmmm


Slowly starting my list of firsts.
Thursday first after NANO B&N meeting, it was so strange and in many ways surreal. It was good to talk to others and to get out of the apartment, though I felt as if I was cheating on him somehow. I mean out enjoying myself and it's only been a week and one day since he passed.

I mean in Gone With the Wind you wore black for at least a month. Well, my wardrobe is still over half black. So I guess I fit into that, after I leave work I mean.

Then today eye exam, and right now had to take contacts out and my spelling may be a bit more rotten than normal. Hopefully will have new lenses by next week, and I will be able to see a bit better.

So 2 firsts down and many more to go I know. Turned up the heat in the apt a bit and ordered pizza which is like 2 dys meals.

Need to get some boxes and start packing some stuff away to make room and I need to get rid of this office chair it keeps sinking... UGHHHHH now I know why I use the laptop. Will see if John will help me take it to the dojo tomorrow before I chuck it out the window. ugggg

Thoughts on Medical Care and Insurance

My husband is being released tomorrow, there is good and bad on that.
Good part he'll be home, bad part it's not by doctor's choice, it's the insurance. Now I have to scramble to find the bags he needs and such. There is one place, but guess what.. it's out of network. So I have to pay for it. Tried another place, but guess what it's not open on Saturday. So I can only hope that they will give me a bag or two to get thru until I can find a supply in network.

I am still finding it hard to believe how much we are controlled by the insurance companies. They dictate what medicines the doctors can give us. How much medical treatment we have etc. I know I am not the only one going thru this. There are Seniors and those on Medicare/Caid and those not insured.

The only ones who have no idea what it's like is those who live off our money. The Government. They live like kings. They don't pay for their insurance, they get the best treatment etc. They are not living in the real world. Why should they? they have the backs of the poor and working class.

Our Mayor Bell, doesn't even know what it's like to live rough. He's collecting 3 pensions. But has no issue in making sure the citizens of Toledo can't survive. I really don't see him having money issues.

The Government trembles when the insurance companies say we're out of money. Why? because they are worse than any gangster in our history. I don't see anything changing either, at least not in my lifetime.

I know we'll make it. The Lord will provide. He always does. Still it's a sad state of affairs to know you can't survive without the okay of the insurance companies
