That is good, Maybe this will be his first step to healing. I sure do hope so.
I hope that you are having a good day. Me not so much. Terrible heat wave. Frying my brain.lol... It is just too hot here. No end in sight. Wish it would rain...
Sorry for the vent.
I've been trying to stay inside, I can't take the heat at all! I hate it! lol!
Also, I called all over today trying to figure out my boyfriend's insurance and a list of providers. Insurance stuff is very confusing, and I'm not used to having to do all this calling to figure out benefits. I'm lucky to have insurance from my father through the Army, as well as state insurance...so I just have to ask if they accept state insurance or not and if they do I'm good to go. Not so for this insurance, its really weird and obscure. I was scared that there would be no providers around here, but I found some.
He made an appointment to do some paperwork and possibly see a doctor...but it isn't until September. Ugh. We aren't even in August yet. We live in a rural area, so I am not surprised that it takes so long to see a doctor...but I really hope that we can get something done on that day. It is taking everything I have to cope right now.
After we set up the appointment, I called his insurance back to find out about
co-pay and benefit limits, etc. Basically, they said that in network providers are $20 co-pay with unlimited visits. His prescript
ion benefits let him pay $10 for generic, and $30-40 for brand name. When I told him this, I was thinking that it sounded really good...meanwhile he decides to get really pissed off and hateful.
He goes on and on about
how he doesn't have enough money for this, when we live with my father who pays ALL the bills. All of them. We don't even pay rent. I know my boyfriend is having trouble working lately, but he makes more than enough to pay for a doctor appointment now and then and some medication once a month or so. He gets so worked up about
things that haven't even happened yet, and he becomes so angry and irrational. It's like he expects everything to be handed to him or something, I don't know. It's probably partly his illness, but he is kind of like that normally anyhow.
He said something like, he can't deal with that--meaning the amount of money he'd need to pay. I told him that he needs to, because I can't deal with it if he DOESN'T get help. I told him we need to do this, and that there isn't anything else more worthy of paying for than your health. He sorta calmed down, but he's still worked up and ordering me around today. I feel like I'm walking on eggshells. Plus, not one thank you for calling and talking to people for like 2 hours. But then again, I guess I didn't expect a thank you...but maybe just not being ANGRY at everything would have been thanks enough.
