What a difference a day makes...


Sadly, as I grow older I don’t see me becoming one iota wiser. It seems to be more difficult for me to understand things, and for that I am a bit afraid. I argue more about things that I feel are correct and want to slap myself for my own stupidity that appears more rampant than when I was a youngin, wet behind the ears, whatever that truly means, huh? Any-who, today, actually this afternoon I went to an alternate ultrasound location than my new physician’s, since the price was sixty bucks less than theirs. Oh wait, let me get you up to speed… I have insurance but for all things not hospitalization I have a$2000 deductible and until I meet that my out of pocket I though was 100%, since some stupid employee at my insurance company insisted that was right, even when I told her that I have had PPO’s before and it didn’t usually go that way. To my remembrance it was always just a percentage, in this case, like most and 80% theirs and 20% mine. She argues that it wasn’t, thus my sad dilemma and writings of last night. This morning the day crew set me straight even with finally the blood work order that after I tried getting price since that too I was told would come out of our shallow pockets too, well, that too is also an 80% theirs, 20% mine split, GIGUNDA WHEW! Boy do I have egg on my face. I left the blood work at the doctor’s lab for after Thanksgiving. But my body is not good at all now. Dizzy and achy and we both had flu shots back in October again and my pneumonia shot has a little over a year left on it, being given in April of 2009 and they are supposed to last five years… So I don’t know what’s up, but I will tell you it’s not a great feeling. Although, my blood pressure has been low normal, 108/61, Hubby took it earlier. My body temp has been low again though too, 97.4. I do know that is symptomatic of low thyroid, but my last test in May showed that although low according to the doctor was not low enough to warrant an increase in my thyroid hormone medication. But even then they wanted me to go for a thyroid ultrasound, but without insurance I felt it would be too costly. That’s why all the boloney I just went through with trying to find out how to handle now having insurance that should have been helping me, horrible. It felt like when I had none at all. Sorry about the venting, but I do know you are all there as a sounding board; even if you never say a word, I imagine that you hear me… and THANKS for playing along! On that note of trying hard to be human in this world that we all have our own difficulties to bear, and I DO UNDERSTAND THAT… allow me to be the first to wish all of you a very happy good night and ask you kindly to count all your blessings and we will too! And next time please be here or be square, ya hear?

I know, it's a bit excessive ...but useful stretching meals ideas at the end though...!

I really don't know if it is fascinating or upsetting? The fluctuations have been since this morning usually due to a slight breez...
