Me,
That is wonderful! Hopefully, one day soon we won't have to have such anxiety about not having insurance!

Great! 

At least this should help reduce some of your stress.  I can not imagine how hard it must be having chronic health issues and worrying about getting the care and medications you need.

Now off to the doctor with you.......for that numbness.

Yep, it's off to the Dr. with me...My regular appt. was for next Wed., but once they got my msg. about the numbness they called and want me to come in on Friday... He wants to re-evaluate me...So, I guess it will be a long day tomorrow...

I am glad, I'm also coming down with Bronchitis..Yippee!

I was just notified yesterday that my Blue Cross PPO (a group policy through work) is going up over 13%. We were notified a couple of weeks ago that we would not get a cost of living raise this year. My cost of the policy is about $550 per month for me and my daughter, but the 13% increase will be for the whole cost (my cost plus what the company paid), and will be passed on to me entirely. I think they paid about 200 per month, so that makes it 13% of 750 dollars that I just lost per month right after I was told that I won't get a raise this year. Since I am basically broke just paying my co-pays, co-insurance fees and deductibles, it really will hurt.

Pain level varies from disturbing to nearly intolerable.

OH, I read further down and saw you are not feeling well, sorry Me, I should have finishe reading everyone before posting. Bronchitis sucks, I truely hope you are feeling better soon. I gernerally get it every winter and a steamy shower was the best thing I ever found to help clear your lungs out a bit but you probably already knew that! Wish I was more help.

Oh me, so sorry to hear of the bronchitis. I am in my 5th week of it, I have COPD and an oxygen patient. When I get it, it so hard to get rid of. I usually am good for about 3 rounds of different antibiotics then have to back of them because I have both UC/crohns. The anibioitcs can really trigger some bad problems.

On the other hand I am so glad you got the TennCare back.

Thanks Pete, I know I will feel better soon..Thanks for the concern.

Straydog, Wow...5 weeks? That sucks! I used to get Chronic Bronchitis...at least 7 times each year. Talk about a lot of Endal HD!!! But to have COPD and have to use O2... I know you feel like a big pile of "Dookie"...Ha Ha Dookie what a funny word.

Oh goodness, I am going insane from being sick...Anyway, I am very happy about my insurance, I just hope it's in the computer by tomorrow when I go to the Doc...Oh well, if not I can go one more month...

Going to lay down (lean back) now and try to rest...Got a long day tomorrow.

Love to all,
Me

Uniquelyme, I will rejoice with you over the victory of the giant call insurance. I know the insurance ordeal is a major issue these days. After I was injured on the job before I was vested, I was told I did not deserve insurance since I was not retired only totally disabled. After fighting all the way to Washing DC, I was granted insurance. I hope a day comes when people can afford health care. It seems that those who really need it can't get it. As I recruit students to come to the school I administrate, when the issue of health care come up, I tell them to pray hard that they will not need medical care. So enjoy the victory.
