Feeling ever so grumpy 05/25/11

Thursday, May 26, 2011

The Last fee days have been Draining. I haven't Slept much at all. There has been Stormy weather and tornado's. My Dog Misty has been missing for Two days. Last sighted in a taco bell parking lot at Oats and Gus Thomasson in Mesquite headed toward Maylee. The Police tried to catch her but did not succeed. My Brother may have Bone cancer and they have started him on chemo treatment. I Have to go back for a 2nd breast MRI the one last week was only on the lt and they should have done both left and rt. Still praying this is not more cancer and telling myself it may be silicon leakage from my implant used for my reconstruction after my Mastectomy either looks like more surgery in my near future. And as of May 31st I will no longer have Medicaid. There are other family issues that are very stressful. So Heavy sigh Deep breathes and move forward. First Step for me is to say Good night, Sleep well. and go try to get some much needed sleep after a heart felt prayer knowing that tomorrow will be better.

    Thank you. All prayers always welcome. and instead of a swift kick I would rather just give you a (((Hug))) and lots of encouragement. You can do this! Say it! Feel it! and Believe it! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Carol, remind me to give myself that swift kick in the rear that I so badly need right now anyway.

    Your journey has the challenges and hardships of 10 people, and I'm sure it's easy to ask, "Why me?" (I know I'd be asking that)!

    I wish I could do more...but what I can and will do is to pray for financial assistance for your needs...and for healings for you and your brother. God bless, my friend!

    Carol, I understand and feel the same way. If I could manage I would not ask the government for help at all. And I get angry when I am there applying and being turned down when I see them hand a food stamp card to a lady reading on her $249 Nook while her husband was using his lap top in the waiting area. If they can afford those why cant they buy groceries? Then I just have to calm myself by remembering that I do not know their circumstances or situation and that it is not my place to Judge. I personally have had to sell items to make ends meet more times than I like to think about, but you do what you have to. My computer is a big old desk top that is 12 yrs old and runs windows 98 lol the pawn shop wouldn't take it but I am glad because now I get to keep it and feel blessed to have it. emoticon

    CAROL, I GUESS I DIDN'T KNOW THERE WAS A DIFFERENCE. BUT I WENT AND READ UP ON IT AND YOU ARE RIGHT THERE ARE OTHER PROGRAMS THAT SHOULD BE CUT. I WON'T GO INTO WHAT I FEEL ABOUT SOME PEOPLE WHO GET EVERYTHING FROM OUR GOVERNMENT WHILE SITTING ON THEIR A$$ AS I DON'T WANT TO GET SLAMMED FOR MY OPINIONS FROM OTHERS WHO MAY READ THIS.

    I SURE HOPE YOU GET SOME HELP AND MISTY COMES HOME SOON.

    HUGS

    Carol, Medicaid is 2ndary to my Medicare. I previously qualified for it due to my breast cancer and income level Now they are saying that the new rules are that you can not have any other insurance not even Medicare and your total household income has to be less than $900 a mo. My social security is $1018 a month so I make too much to qualify. I can think of many other programs for them to cut the national budget with instead of cutting Medicaid/Medicare for those of us who truly need it. My doctor wont release me to go back to work. so it is Gods hands to help me find a way to make this work. I am checking with Parkland which is our county hospital to see if their breast cancer program will help with payment of my medical expenses or at least let me have a payment plan based on my income. It will take them 45 to 60 days to process my application for help. Hopefully they haven't had their budget cut and they will be able to approve it. It will mean changing doctors but I don't know what else to do.

    BOY, CAROL. WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE. CAN I ASK WHY NO MEDICAID? I THOUGHT THIS WAS OUR RIGHT.

    PLEASE HANG IN THERE AS I'M PRAYING FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

    HUGS

    Thank you so much everyone. Misty is still missing. I am so congested I could not keep from coughing too much to get the MRI so will have to go back a 3rd time after I get over this crud. I will go to the doctor in the morning to try to get something to clear this up. Hoping can try again Monday or Tuesday while I still have Medicaid.

    Poor girl you have been having some really bad days ... I sure hope everything gets better for you real soon ... Also hope your dog possibly finds his way back to you --

    We have lost a lot of sleep also because of the storms ... we've also had them for a solid week ... They are saying the next two days will be much better.

    Stay safe.
