I'm sorry....I haven't been on HW for such a long time; I've just been sort of hibernating I guess. Sort of in a dark and quiet place where I didn't even want to answer emails. Am I depressed?
Anyway, the basic updates are that I've had a SPECT scan which was negative, so it won't help me in my fight with Anthem Blue Cross. I'm now on IV Rocephin; I just started it this week!
I'm trying to get Blue Cross to pay for my IV Rocephin. I did use that wonderful appeal letter you sent me, CajunGrl...thanks again!! The appeal process is still going on, and I don't know how it will come out.
Because of all of the financial strain we are losing our house. We have put it up for sale, but it's a short sale because we're upside-down on our mortgage.
This disease steals so much from us!! Just a few years ago I was Super Woman! I was working two jobs, I was energetic and (relatively) healthy, I was paying all of my bills on time. Now I've lost my part-time job and am on partial disability and only working 24 hours a week from home. I may be forced to go on full-time disability soon....there is a meeting about
*me* scheduled for this coming Monday at 11am PDT to decide my fate! I'm scared and sad....
Sorry that I don't have too many good things to report! Well, starting IV Rocephin is a good thing, even if I do have to pay for it myself!! I am REALLY hoping that this does the trick adn starts making a difference with my neuro symptoms.
I hope all are doing well!!
