Hustling to make doc appointment, lab orders for this weekend.. Found out for sure today that my health insurance ends 1/1/14.. Manager at work gave me the wrong info, so I kick it up full throttle to get the fake insurance online.. When doing a survey earlier in the year about it, it appeared that it would cost me double for less coverage.. (Linda's Law), so I will see,,, everybody has to have this coverage done by 12/23 to be covered Jan 1...
Ironically, my mother has the most perfect health coverage possible for an American citizen..My dear dad set it up so she has two coverages so she never has any bills, her co-pays are insanely small and no paperwork left to do...
I get to do the paperwork if needed, but if only I had the chance to get the insurance she has because of him, I would be living in a dream world..
My prayers always include gratitude, so from now on they will be filled with wonder if HE can swing a little miracle and guide me towards health coverage that I can pay for and still keep my home and buy food.
So far, two people that I have talked to, have switched over to o-care and their co-pays jumped from $50 to $5,000!
so, basically, I work, pay taxes, pay into my SS and Medicare, THEN add more $$ out of pocket for different health coverage, while those who choose not to work, get free Medicaid while I have to wait to get until I am 65 years old. I know a woman who is a niece of a fellow from my church who has five children by three different fathers, who gets free food, subsidized housing, Medicaid, childcare, free education, gas mileage to doc appts, free cell phone,, her and her kids medicaid comes out of MY SS,,,
we will see how this all pans out.. If I cannot afford the coverage, I guess I will drop all of my meds(BP, cholesterol,diabetes, arthritis, fibromyalgia,meds,plus stop testing my blood sugar..
I blog to think things out and figure out how to climb over yet another hurdle.. just when things were going smoothly...

If I do not blog about this I will blow like a whale in spring!!
Last night I was checking kmart store hours so I could take advantage of their BOGO shoe sales for my shoes for work. After much delving, i saw that I could get free shipping on an order of $59. I learned that the shoes in my size were not in stock in any store withing 50 miles of my home, so I clicked on ship. I then searched the site for a book and nightshirt for DD for Christmas.
Two hours later I finally found the right thing, since the site kept taking the sleepwear off my cart!! Back and forth for another hour, I finally gave up and clicked on agent chat to see if they could get this item to my cart..
Thirty minutes later, she could not find the sleepwear , so we hung up and I finally found another in a different color and went to check out. When I saw I had over $59 ordered in my cart, I clicked on checkout and immediately they said I could not get the shoes shipped because the were in stock within 50 miles of my home!!!!!!!!! WTH????????
Make up your mind!! So now, I could not order the most important things and without them I could not get free shipping!!!!!!!!!!!
After four hours, I deleted the whole darned thing.. I know my BP was sky high:Four hours of my life gone for nothing.. almost
That story is to tell you this story!
Change of game plan: DD and I rose early and were at the kmart doors as the manager unlocked them ,, the only customers.. List in hand, we bee-lined to the shoe department.. Sure enough, one pair of the shoes I wanted,, but I did find them in a different width and tried those on,,they fit okay too.
Needed a new sink strainer,, took the old one with me to compare size, but theirs had a plastic handle and was foreign made. so no-go... I will go without before I buy foreign made..
Off to the book aisle,, DD found the book I promised her last night,,in our cart with shoes.. found a half off sale on Joe boxer too. for Dd in the cart and off to check out!! Still the only customers in the store at 8 am..
Now, I did find out that if you have that online hassle, go to the store and if they do not have your item, they will still ship it to your home free of charge!!
NOW THEY TELL ME!!
Now I have to figure out how to get all or most of those four hours back this weekend..

Today is a regular day,, Praise my Creator! I mean that it is a day to bypass trauma, a chance to do something I want to do, not HAVE to do. So far, I just worked all day, then came home and ate, showered, fell asleep on the keyboard for a couple hours...
WHAT WILL I BE ABLE TO LOOK BACK ON LATER AND BE PROUD OF FOR THIS DAY???????
I made an outright attempt to be very nice to everybody today; no negative energy despite major problems at work. I smiled and wished every single person a great day and weekend.
I kept my mouth shut when it was not my turn to speak, ,, that alone was worth its' weight in gold!!
I have a list of people to call later to see how they are doing,, no nosiness, just well wishes for a couple minutes and hang up.
I feel very confident that my mammogram from yesterday will be a boring read for the tech. I am very grateful that I have access to the procedure at all.. I save my $$ to have it done each year and feel more relaxed for the sacrifice...
