So hey there! Sorry I was gone so long, I got my ass kicked. I’m supposed to have plasma infused in me every four weeks but when this last round came along I was told that my insurance needed to pre-authorize it and that it hadn’t yet been approved. The following week when I had another appointment I was told the same thing. I called people, my doctors called people, my husband called people – nothing was happening. I got super sick. I managed to get out of bed from 11-4 every day but then I crashed. Totally missed Valentine’s Day. Finally the third week came around (I had at that point been seven weeks without it) and my doctors said screw them, come in anyway “We’re sure you’ll get approved”. I asked my husband and he said go, I really had no choice. I had half my family coming to my house for the weekend and I just wouldn’t have had the strength to socialize with them. So I went. 36 hours later I was at 100% again, ready to take on the world. A few days after that I was approved and they back dated it to Feb 4th so it covered my $12,000 procedure. I just about cried. I’ve been getting this monthly for years and have never had this kind of problem. This time I’ve been approved for the entire year and I’ve told the hospital to apply for approval like two months in advance next time so this doesn’t happen again.
That being said, I have an announcement to make. I’m just beat. I can’t really come up with creative content like I used to, I’ve told every story I can think to tell. Therefore from now on I’ll be taking my blog down to three posts a week. Monday’s I’ll be either writing for a company or filling you in on the goings on in my household, Wednesday’s will be the usual Wordless Wednesday (although I post them on Tuesday’s) and Friday I’m sticking to memes because they make me happy. It will save me the stress from having to constantly come up with material that would likely bore you. It was stressing me out to the point where I was considering giving up blogging altogether but a friend of mine suggested I try this to see how it works out. I really want to keep everyone updated on my weight loss and I don’t want to lose you so I think this is the way to go. Thanks for your support. (It gets better. Click to continue reading…)
