Since I’m too old to trick or treat, maybe I should start. Trick or treat GoFundMe. If everyone donated a $1, I’d pay off about half my current medical bills.
Basically, my insurance is trying to screw me. Since I was originally misdiagnosed with a Urinary Tract Infection, they see no reason for me to continue to have treatment on my hip. After all, a round of antibiotics should have cured me.
Except it didn’t even come close… so the injections and subsequent visits to the ER, urgent care, pain management doctor, iridologist to prove it wasn’t a urinary tract infection, the injection, the MRI, the nerve ablation, and testing for disorders like Lupus, they don’t feel they should have to pay for because if I had taken the antibiotics as instructed, I’d be cured.
Never mind that I did take the antibiotics and was far from cured. They don’t want to pay for any of prescriptions related to my hip or back problem (because I have a tear in a disc that is causing back pain (and yes, I’ve seen a chiropractor and been doing acupuncture – neither are helping with either the hip or the back).
I feel like I’m drowning. I am still having issues working. I can’t seem to make enough money in a month no matter how well I budget. I can’t get a second job at the moment that would require me to go somewhere other than my house because I can’t drive. Plus, I would have to be careful about the number of hours I worked since standing kills me and sometimes, sitting is just as bad.
I need to win the lottery, except I don’t play it because it seems like a complete waste of what little money I do have.
Anyone else ever feel like they are drowning? Or like the universe is out to get them and they don’t know how to fix their karma to make it stop? Because that is where I’m at.
Ok, I’ll stop throwing my pity party, pull up my big girl peekaboo panties and pray for a miracle, because that is currently what I feel I need.
