I can bend my neck now, thank goodness for steriods! That sounds wrong... but it's so true.
I love having health insurance and being able to go to the doc. I can pay $20 to see my doc, then have reduced pay on my meds, and it's great. For instance, I used to have to pay $50 out of pocket for my doctor's visit, then $40 for an inhaler. A whooping total of $90 to not die of an asthma attack. Geesh. Now I pay $20 to see my doc, or free to call it in and ask, and then like $20 for my inhaler. Total of $20 to $40 max. It is so nice. I am soooo grateful. For as crappy as my insurance is, I am still grateful I have it. I know what it's like not to.
And having it, I am using it up. Before, I would have suffered for weeks with my injury from my fall on Monday. But now? I go to the doc, and it's 3-4 days later, and I am feeling a lot better. It's amazing. I was sick last month, and if I hadn't went to the doctor I would have been sick for 2 weeks. I was only sick for 4-5 days I think. It was such a huge difference. I'm still not quite used to being able to visit a doctor whenever I need to.
That being said, I still have to pay out the butt for infertility because that service just ain't covered. But... I guess I shouldn't complain too much.
I woke up today, and dear Aunt Flo is here. Oh yes, cycle day one we meet again. I am taking the Clomid this cycle, and hoping for a birthday surprise ovulation. Will I get it? Probably not, but it would be nice. Onward!
But for now, I must gather my kitty in the ole pet carrier and cart her to the vets. It's time to get her stitches out. Yes, stitches. I got her fixed. I kinda feel bad for taking that right away from her, but there is a pet overpopluation problem... and I don't want more kitties right now. Not to mention she was too dainty to even handle this litter. She only got milk in 2 of her nipples, for 4 kittens. I had to supplement the runts because they were loosing weight, momma was loosing weight, and I was concerned. So, I suppose it's all for the better, but still... the guilt nags me. Who am I to take that right away from her, if you know what I mean? She just wants to be a momma... and I can totally relate.
