Back to normal

Five week and two days later I am finally feeling as well as before I fell. No fooling, it takes a long time to heal. I've been to a nurse practitioner at my primary care office and two different eye doctors. I was beginning to think I would never get back to normal, so I'm very pleased with this day. I've also been involved with a lot of financial nonsense. Just when I most needed everything to function without my intervention, it was not to be. The pharmacy department of my health insurance decided I was expired. I don't know if that meant dead, or that I was no longer covered by the policy. The hassle with the pharmacy and then the several calls with the company was annoying in the extreme. I cringe inside every time I have to call a company. That's just one example. So I cleaned up the kitchen, started a crockpot with soup, and got a haircut. Now, if those dark circles under my right eye would go away, everything would be wonderful.

  1. Hi Ruthe,
    It’s 2:30 a.m. on Saturday, December 31st. I couldn’t sleep and decided to do some “surfing” of my Favorites list. Of course, your Blog is listed. Sorry to hear about your fall. Sonsee and I miss being your “upstairs” neighbor. I loved the picture of “our” backyard with the changing leaves and colors. Stay in touch.

  2. I’m so glad you’re feeling better, Ruthe. The medical insurance nonsense, though, is infuriating. I’m sorry you’re going through that. How maddening it is that the rest of the western world knows what to do about health care but we’re just too stubborn to admit another country might have a better idea. Anyway, hang in there!

  3. Well there’s ying and yang. Bad example I guess, but at least the bad stuff was well balanced with your feeling better. It does take a long time to heal–just as it seems to take a long long time to get back in shape after chemo as I’m going through right now. Soup was probably especially gratifying after the day you went through and the idiots at the insurance pharmacy! If you’re like me, you’d just as soon do without them. (If only I could!)

  4. I’m thinking you’re not dead. That would be way less expensive and annoying. Glad you’re feeling better. Isn’t it something how when we don’t feel right, we can’t even imagine feeling normal again?

  5. I’m so happy to see you. Happier to read your good news. I was just sitting here worrying about you. Now I can jump up and down with a cheer or two. So pleased for you too.
    Yes, I hate to call companies especially medical anything. This year it appears I have a four tear prescription service. Who knows what that means. I dread calling to find out. Hope everything works out well.
