Hi Aurora,
 
I have noticed that you haven't posted in a couple of days and want to say that I hope it is because you are busy and having fun.  Post when you can.  Hope to hear from you soon.
 
Hugs, Karen

Hi Karen, thanks for asking about me. I am OK. I have been busy with getting
my son's apartment application in and figuring out when and how to move his
things. I also am searching for extra kitchen equipment I can give him and what I can do to help him get set up. I know the couselors at his program want him to problem solve himself but he has never lived alone so I think he
needs some help. He can take occupancy on Aug. 23 so I want to go over and clean up the kitchen and bath and make everything fresh. I also thought I would get him some grocery staples. He says he is ready for this but saying so and actually doing this are different. So I will do the best I can. At least he will be close by.
I have also been going through the nightmare of signing up for medicare. Actually I am automatically signed up because I am already getting SSI. And I did sign up for a supplemental insurance to cover what medicare doesn't. The problem comes in with trying to find a drug supplement. There are suppposedly 46 different plans so I really need help with finding one so that is going to be a difficult task. And even with a plan I will be paying the monthly cost plus the cost of the meds and if I get copays they will be so much higher.
So I feel like I am not saving much by having medicare unless I get sick which I am hoping I won't for a while. So I guess I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by all I have to do. So if I don't post don't worry about me. I just have more than I need on my plate right now.
 
Hugs,

Hi Aurora,
 
My husband has somebody help him with that.  I am not sure who it is but I will find out.  The only thing that went wrong for us is I had to quit work for him to be eligable for this program.  I think it is called health net orange or something like that.  But his prescriptions are only 2.50.  And it pays most of his doctors visits.  He has medicaire too.  I know that they make it complicated, but you should be able to find somebody to help you through social security.  I will ask him about it though. 
 
It sounds like you are staying really busy, that is good, just don't over do it.  Take things slowly and as they come.  I am really happy for you. 
 
I hope that you are having a good evening, I am about to go to bed after I read a couple more posts.  Been really tired from the heat and humidity that we had, but that has let up some so today was a better day. 
 
Take care my friend.
 
Hugs, Karen

Aurora,
I know many of the Walgreen's and CVS pharmacies have people who will help educate you about the different drug plans. There are some online models to help -- the pharmacy people should be able to hook you up with them.

Hope your son & pick up a bit of the slack now that he's gone through all the great programs this summer. I hope that maybe now you can just relax & enjoy his company rather than having to do so much for him. :)

wishing you well,
frances

Aurora: I realize I haven't been around much lately, but please know that I've been thinking a lot about you and hoping life was getting better. Your son is so lucky to have a mom like you. I'm sensing that you being so involved in his move has perhaps made you more comfortable with it. I'm hoping that I'm right.

I'll try to be on more often now and perhaps we can catch up like we used to.

Hi Cass, thanks for replying to me. We haven't talked in a long time. I am kind of overwhelmed with all that has to be done to get my son moved to his new
apt. I am making lists of all the things he is going to need which is a lot as he
has no kitchen equipment. He does have enough furniture as the apt is just a studio. My biggest battle is with his dad about where he is going to stay the one week he gets back from his program. He starts work the day after he returns. I think he should stay at home with me so he can begin to pack up the things he wants to have. His dad seems to think he will regress if he spends any time with me. I don't know how bad it could be as it is just one week. And my son is certainly not going to want to stay at his dad's but we will have to do what his therapists think is the best for him. It's kind of hard to work all day, have to stay at his dad's and then figure out how he can pack.
And I am not supposed to be giving him any help in this. The therapists want him to figure all of this out himself as this is part of his being able to be independent and on his own. I am just having trouble coping with so much to do. Well, I guess it will get solved somehow. Thanks again for caring and I hope we can talk again.
 
Hugs,
