Hi Palady,

I know that today is your final day of health insurance, so I just wanted to see how you were doing! I haven't been around much, the last few days, but I've been thinking of you & the others! I hope you are doing alright. I'm still praying that something good is going to come your way, in terms of both your insurance & your health! ((((((((Palady))))))))).

hugs,
Skeye

Skeye,
Thanks so much for remembering. Yep, midnight tonight and this will be the first time in my life without health insurance. I probably should add a slight caveat, in that BC/BS told me as long as I opt for one of their programs (even the low end ones) within 90 days (and, of course pay the premium) I can retain the ability to not have pre-existing conditions excluded. They told me to just use my card that I have now, and it would be denied but as long as I then paid the premiums I could get insurance backdated to 7/1/09. So that's a fail safe. And I probably will get a very minimal program which will cover a few doctor visits and a few other things, although if I can't get money from my annuity I will be eligible for Medicaid. Anyway, I got the crown put on my tooth today, and to some extent I am relieved the 30th is here. Get it over with and start moving to the next phase of things.

But I've been thinking about you all day, Skeye, because I've had a horrible headache behind one eye - the eye that I've had examined twice in the past month and told I just had a floater. I hope it's just a headache.

Laurie - thank you for the smiles - as always!!!

Hugs back at both of you!!

p.s. Skeye - be sure to keep me updated on that office kitty!

What the heck is a floater? You got a little boat or canoe in the eye?

ROFL!!!

I'm just learning about these things myself. It's some sort of a tiny little spot that's more annoying than anything. Kind of a very slight blurr to vision in that tiny spot so if you're looking a certain way you notice it. Opthamologist told me they actually get a little better over time. I suspect you just get used to them!

I'm so lucky that I've never had problems with my eyes other than needing some reading glasses. It's only recently that my own eye started to give me problems, along with it seems about every other part of my body! I know the stress of CP and all the other things in my life has affected me, just like it does all of us.

I'll be thinking of that miniature canoe in my eye!

LOL ok now I get it..... I have noticed alot of things go haywire with our body and mind when we deal with CP.

Run screaming and crying to the eye doctor if you close your eyes and see a minature canoe floating around. That will get you some treatment....might not be the treatment you want though that 72 hour hold might be uncomfortable. Just think about all those lovely white straps on your new jacket you will get...

Ice on the back of the neck can help with headaches but I don't know about canoes??? You seem to be getting every symptom at once! Good luck with the medical coverage, stress always makes everything worse, fingers crossed that everything settles soon for you PAlady, golitho

Laurie, you don't have to worry about the floaters as long as they are the size of a canoe. It is when they get to the speed boat phase that you have to be concerned. Floaters are part of (getting older) life. Many people get them. They actually can be entertaining as you wonder if there is a bug flying around or it just the floater again. You can amuse others by swatting at the bugs (floater) and they think you are ready for the white coats.
 
PAlady, You have made the transition and everything is still ok. You are doing so good. I hope that the anxiety has let up a little and that you are facing these new challenges gracefully, That does not mean we accept things without fighting. And I kknow you are a fighter in the good sense. I am sorry to hear of the headache. They seem to come with the territory some times. How did the crown go? I have not heard if you had the perm. one put on. The last I heard you thought the nexium was doing a little better and I certainly hope that you get more benefit as time goes on.

Fatherjohn,
So you have little canoes, too? LOL Maybe we can have a race sometime! I never thought about swatting a bug. Instead, I keep trying to keep that single strand of hair out of the way. To each his or her own swattee. :-)

Yes, I am officially keeping company with nearly 50 million other Americans without health insurance. Should be a fun gathering when we have our convention. I did get the crown put on today and that seemed to go well, except for the cost. Some haggling with the insurance company. What else is new. But it's by and large over. The nexium still seems to be helping as long as I eat at the right times, and keep it fairly bland. That's the challenging part and I'm not sure I'd say I meet new challenges gracefully, FJ. Maybe this is a chance for this dog to learn a new trick? My dentist appointment wasn't until 6pm and then I did some errands and stopped at the store and by the time I got home and took my nexium and waited an hour it was nearly 10pm when I was eating and then I wanted to eat everything in site! And for a couple of hours did, which is why I'm still up. I'm going to hit the sack soon and hopefully most of the headache will stay gone.

Golitho - yes, as a matter of fact I had the ice pack out earlier. I had it on my neck and then on my forehead but could barely stand it on my forehead. Then I put some heat around my neck muscles and did my stretches and took an allergy pill. I think it's mabe a sinus headache and I get them just a few times a year but when I do they're like a migraine and can last for a few days.

Anyway, thanks to all of you again. And Frances, thanks for the hugs!

FJ if I learn any grace out of this it will be because of this group!

Hi Palady,

I hope you are feeling better tonight! Headaches are no fun, whatever the cause. You'd think that by now they would have found a cure for headaches & the common cold! We've only been working at this for oh, thousands of years!

hugs,
Skeye

Thanks, Skeye.

Yes, the headache finally subsided; just a little sinus pressure left and that's manageable. I think it probably was a sinus headache. Wish that was the worst of my problems!

Please keep posting and let us know how you're doing, too!

Hugs,

PaLady
