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.
