Identical letter

I just received an identical letter to the one I got yesterday from Covered CA regarding health insurance. To say I am bewildered is an understatement. They say within 10 business days someone will contact me. Okey dokey artichokey. 

As it gets closer to the 4th of July the idiots in the 'hood are starting to fire off big ole fireworks. We aren't talking about people who stomp the ends of Piccolo Petes, we're talking mortars. Though they light up the sky with sparkles, they also make my dogs psychotic. When you're holding a 55 lb German Shorthair pointer next to you as she shivers....I don't know. 

12 days from now I will be 64. Doing ok for an old broad. 

Am counting down the months till Outlander comes back. I have read all 8 books and am waiting anxiously for #9.  This is one of my favorite stills from it. I love the teasing look. 

In the meantime have a good start to summer.

More confused than ever

I got a letter from Covered CA and it's made me more confused than ever. We'll see how this comes out. If something happens to me and I need a doctor, I'll go to the hospital and wait for care. 

CNN is showing the Congressional Baseball Game. I tried Cspan but they have no audio. After the events of yesterday, it's nice to see them playing well together. Now Trump is talking. 

I've got my prescriptions to fill and will do the first one this weekend. Then one every week after that till they are all done. 

Bye for now.

The County called me a couple of days ago and wanted to know if my worker's comp was temporary or permanent. I'd say after 14 years, it's permanent. Maybe I'll get health insurance. Need to get my RX refilled. Will check on Good Rx to see where the best prices are. 

I see the ortho on Monday. I was not pleased with the Pain Mgmt guy. 

June gloom abides like the Dude. 

Saw my mom, lots of changes going on at church. Some good, some????

Took me 4 days to get over whatever I had, food poisoning is the main culprit. It will be a cold day in hell before I go back to that place. My dear husband loved his dinner, I shat mine out like an explosive charge. We did have different dinners though. I had 1/2 chicken, salad with oil and vinegar, and 4 small dolmas. He had gyros and a chicken kabob.

This has been a long depressing week.

So I got something from the county......

I got this manila envelope with some pamphlets inside and a cover letter that had different areas to check. The things that were marked were the pamphlets. So I called the number of my case worker and left a message. I am so confused.

I will be 64 in less than a month. I need medical coverage till I turn 65 and can get medicare and social security. In addition, I will get my pittance from the DOL. I have an attorney working on getting me a schedule award for my injury. Hope that it doesn't take forever.

I am sending a letter to my physician asking for hard copy Rx of all the stuff I take so I can get them refilled. I am hoping to use Good RX which seems to have the way to cut my costs even if I have to go to 3 or 4 pharmacies.

May grey is here and in a day or two it will be June gloom. Ok by me.

Outside my window68 and overcast

I am thinking My shoulder and arm are really hurting.

I am thankful for loving pooches.

From the learning rooms …  got to get this insurance thing going. 

I can't believe ...  that this government has gone to hell in a hand basket.

From the kitchen . . . It’s clean!

I am wearing  my night dress. I’m not real go for it today.

I am creating . . an idea of how to paint the one wall in the living room.

I am going. . .  to get my nails done tomorrow afternoon.

I am reading. . . all sorts of things.

I am hoping that #1 child gets a job soon, and #2 finds the perfect apartment.

I am hearing silence, blessed silence.

Around the house2 dogs and sleepy boy.

One of my favorite thingsmy Funko characters.

A few plans for the rest of the week
1.  Enjoy the holiday
2.  Have boy weed whack the patio
          3.Church on Sunday

More hearts breaking

Again with broken hearts, we pray with the people of England for the loss of children and adults who were massacred after they enjoyed a concert.
Prayers for Ariana Grande and her staff and co-workers who made memories for those attending the concert, only to have the good ones, ripped away like a storm by a person who thought it was ok to kill children. 
Prayers for the people of England who will show their strength by not hating all but just the one. 

Hear Us O Lord,
Your mercy is great.

Still no health insurance....

I'm in the process of applying for health insurance through covered ca and/or Medi-Cal. Seems like it may be a slog. I hope not. I'll get it out in the mail tomorrow and hope against hope.

I have to get some written prescriptions so I can use the Good Rx program. If I use their 90-day option, it's pretty cheap.

This is not a fun thing and it only makes me dislike the Department of Labor, OWCP even more.

We are struggling. I won't lie. My son got laid off. One income and a paltry drop from the DOL just doesn't do it. It affects my mental state and other things.

I'll be back later in the week after I see the pain management doctor.


The escalator to nowhere.

17 April, 2017

Not much new

Sun still goes up and down.
DOL still stinks.
Waiting on referral approval for pain mgmt.
Waiting on approval for more PT.
Easter went well, service was nice. Dinner was wonderful.
Have a wedding to go to on the 29th.
Have to get health insurance through someone and that's tomorrow's call.
Nothing real exciting to share or vent.
Resistance isn't futile, it just takes some time.

24 March, 2017

Wow the RESISTANCE works!

The Republicans walked away from the table and Obamacare aka the Affordable Health Act is still intact.
Male committees who again wanted to be the guardians of my body. I don't' need a guardian of my body, I can make my own decisions.
The news about the collusion between the heads of the Republican Parties and Russia frightens me.
North Korea and its saber rattling frightens me. I don't know if they will get lucky and launch one that can make it transpacific. But we have deterrents in place.

All done. Now I have to contact Covered CA and see what I can get that will cover me till I turn 65.

Peace and oout.

A round of thanks to the USDOL District 13 SFO.

I've been on workers comp for 13 years. On and off working till after the last surgery, where I had a nonindustrial injury of a broken foot as well as my medical restrictions. I was declared permanent and stationary, wouldn't get any better, could get worse.

Sept 2015 I get sent to a quack in Long Beach who declares that I am miraculously cured of all problems and am able to go back to a 40 hour a week job, after vocational rehab. Vocational Rehab consisted of 6 months of 24 hours a week relearning Office Suite, Quick Books, Internet History and some other stuff. After I graduated, I got into the job search. I applied for over 250 jobs. Got nothing. 

Dec. 2016 the DOL announces to me that they have decided to cut my benefits because nothing I have proven to them has shown them that I am still medically infirm. This is after I requested a new physician in July and was not granted the change till November. The doctor that I see is only in on Mondays and his first report came 2 days after the last day I could challenge the ruling. They would not budge. So as of February 5th, I had no health insurance because the amount they calculated was less than the amount I paid for health insurance. I still have health care for my industrial injury. It went from 1600 to 450$ a month. 

Now my quandary is do I file for Social Security or find a lawyer who does SSDI? I do have several issues that have come up over the time that could qualify me for it. I need to find the tv commercial for the lawyer who says they can get it for you.

This has caused me such great depression. I can't afford my rent. 
I have a car payment as well as insurance. With the three of us it's amazing. 

Ok enough rant for today.
