Blog Challenge- Day 19

Monday, November 18, 2013

19. Think of the person who loves you the most. How would they describe you?

Can you use two people? They would be my parents. In the past I think they would have seen me as "broken", but these days I think they would describe as "driven". I have made some drastic changes in my life in the past couple years. It feels good not to be broken anymore.


Took Cooper for a 3 mile run this morning before getting myself organized to go out for the afternoon. I dropped Cooper off with my mom, then went and got more blood work taken care of, a short trip to the library, and the credit union, before heading off toward my dr appointment. On the way I passed a liquor store that is going out of business, so I stopped and picked up a few things, followed by a quick trip to the grocery store... and I was still 20 minutes early for my appointment. I found out this morning that the medication the dr ordered for me was denied by my insurance. It took them two weeks to determine that there was no medical need. When I called the insurance company this morning I was given two alternatives that are covered, but when I told the doc about them he said he would NEVER prescribe them, as they are too dangerous. So, we compromised with something I could get OTC, but won't be as effective... if it works at all. Oh the joys of insurance!

We are supposed to get snow tonight. It was doing that rain/snow mix thing this afternoon on my drive home. Cooper does NOT want to go outside. In fact, all he wants to do is sleep in my lap. Happy puppy!

    ooohhh... broken.... don't like that word. It definitely does not describe you now. You are certainly driven, but in a good way. Determined. Know what you want. All good stuff.

    Dreaming of a world in which health care providers determine our care, and not insurance companies.
