Ummm..........
How is it that a hospital...in a City... doesnt accept medicaid?????????
I just called about 10 MD's listed under Orthopaedic surgery, and procedures... and NOT one of them accepts medicaid.

I feel like This is a joke, a sick joke that the state is pulling on every sick person on Medicaid.
WTF?!?!?!!?!?!??!

Am i really going to have ot move to Canada????
I think so.
This is totally demeaning, and degrading. They'll load me up with all kinds of drugs, but accept my insurance for a procedure to end some of this pain is not allowed.
I am at a loss at the moment.
I am stunned.

But I'll call another hospital In the other nearby city.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
Sighhhh.. deep breath....

AW: They don't accept medicaid because they are private owned hospitals. Medicaid is for government owned hospitals. Ya know the ones for the folks that are addicts, drunks, welfare, etc. Not cutting anyone down here.... Just the facts as I was told them by my medicaid representative. I know them from losing my insurance and having to go to a government owned hospital.

OK, So i called the Office that "fired" me and they'll look for my MRI films to go to the new MD with... although I think they're at my mom's house.. (She's going to look for me.)
Sooo, I will hopefully get all the help I need. I will call the new MD for their Fax ## so I can have all my records sent there, On second thought, I'll ask to pick them up myself, because I want to ensure that it will get done.

How is everyone feeling today??
I didnt get much done around here, but made a lot of phone calls that i dreaded, adn got of that accomplished, so that was good.

(((hugs)))

OMG! AW I think I may fall dead on the floor. My jaw has already hit my knees. My youngest, almost 12, asked if she could go to the store for me. Not unusual for her to offer to go to the store and it's only one block.... She got my small list and came thru to get some money and go. I just happened to notice she has on 4" heeled knee high boots and shorts. AAAAHHHH!! Was it just this week we had the talk about boy sperm??? I am not ready to do this gain. Got 2 thru the teenage years, 1 to go and I already told hubby this one is gonna be the hardest. She is his child to and he can "participate", lol, right.

Oh this is me falling apart and falling onto the floor. Help; I don't think I can get up by myself. OOOHHHHH! how bout that. 🙁

Is she auditioning for Destiny's Child??!?!?!
LOL
Darn, Mama, That is hard... I remember when My little cousin was wearing Mascara, I almost dropped, and one came to Planned Parenthood for Birth control... THat was un nerving. Of course I NEVER counselered her, or anything, I saw her name on the schedule, and had a co worker take her chart.....That was wicked hard... Even more that The kids I used to change diapers on are now in High school or done with College, wearing Make up, and well, doing the S-e-x.
((((((((((((((((Mama))))))))))))))))))
4" inch heels, bless her heart for being able to walk i nthem, but I sooooooooooooo feel your pain.

LOL AW: Continuing the saga..... My hubby got home and I said "Honey, we have to talk." He always dreads those words... wonder why. So I told him about the boots and shorts and she really is cute. He hit the roof. "Get those boots and burn them. My kid is NOT gonna wear boots w/ 4" heels. Where did she get them" I said, from your other daughter. She sent bags of clothes and shoes down for her lil sis. LOL. I so love to upset him. LOL.

Anyway, I know she's growing up. At least she's a good kid and is open and talks w/ us. (for now).

Oh on another note.. When my oldest was 16 she wanted to go to the doc for her pap test by herself and I'd been sick so I wrote a note saying they could do the test. She came hom w/ "the pill". I called the docs office and had my eyes pop right outta my head. They are obligated by the state to offer birth control to every girl. I have NO rights as to whether they oaffer them or not, or to whether she takes them or not. AND, if she wanted to get an abortion, it would be confidential even tho she be a minor. I hate the government moving into our private lives. But such is the advancement to the end. 🙂
Just wanted to share...

Good AM Mama~~

I have the same laws here, and when i worked at Planned Parenthood, we had girls coming in for ALL kinds of stuff from the ages of 14 right on up. The ages we were required to notify someone was 13 and under.
The 'strangest" couple I saw at the same time was a mother and daughter. Both in for the depo shot (Birth control that lasts for approx. 3 months) the mom was like "I need a pregenancy test too, cuz Ya' know I hooked up with someone and Im just not sure" RIGHT in front of her 14 year old, who was scared and embarrassed, but also there for a BCM (bith control method) The mom said "As soon as she got her period Iput her on birth control."

There were a few other strange ones... My coworker and myself called this one girl up to the counter for her paperwork and insurance info, on "abortion day" and I SWEAR she was about to drop.She was 15 and was 8 months preganant.Her mom didnt notice, and as soon as this girl stood up my friend/Coworker literally gasped. "Lisa" said something like..."better go get a crib, this one is waaaay over 9 weeks."
So by the time they did her ultrasound it was determined that she was 8 months along and we referred her to a few area places that help young mothers, give them supplies, talk about mothering skills and adoption options.

The Mom was Hystericall, making a scene, screaming at her daughter,who was a mess. She was Sooo in deniaal the whole 8 months,and apparently so was her mom.

I was in tears everyday that I worked there, but I was a good counselor, not a good coworker, that place made me bitter, angry, and very depressed. about a month after I got fired from there, Hubby told me I was much happier, and I hadnt realized how much that job changed me,and effected my inner self.

Not to say that im against the facility, or what they do, i am glad they are there for a lot of women.But "the system" and how things work is a whole other story.

Anywaaay~~Your hubby going through the roof was a visual that made me giggle."burn the boots"
LOLOL I guess there will be inspections of bags of clothes coming from big sis' now?? or could she wear the boots, just not "out of the house"??
Im having a flashback of my moms voice saying"you ARE NOT leaving the house in that."
So , apparently I di that as well. I NEVER wore those skirts i see today though, they could pass for headbands.
I remeber poking fun at one of my firends recently.. I said"nice skirt...where's the rest of it?"
LOLOL "Is that a skirt , or a belt?"

Kitty is so cute. I love hearing about kitty.

I told my older daughter about dad this am. She has offered to watch all the kids so he and I can go away for the weekend. She wanted to know where we were going. Told her I don't know, dad hasn't agreed to anything yet other than we can go. LOL I remember those days when my friend and I would get in the car and go somewhere and we'd each take a seat to sleep in coz we were broke. How fun those times were.
Anyway, told her about the boots. She asked what I was gonna do with them. I told her let lil sis wear them. If a pair of boots is the worse thing we have to worry about at this time then I have it made. 🙂

Well, better get busy, I keep sittin here fallin asleep.

Later,

I got a cortozone shot and a back brace from hell yesterday.
THe shot in my shoulder was so painful That i passed out, and cannot move my arm today. I dropped a full cup of coffee, and have been struggling just to get dressed and go pee by myself.
I read the sheet that they gave me about cortizone injections and i apparently am having a cortizone flare up, that should get better w/in 48 hours.
I also got a denial of cash assistance letter from the state today, their reasoning was that i didnt provide enough information... I gave them all the info they aske me for, and if something was missed, it was they who did not ask for it.

I am exhausted and frustrated t osay the least....
I dont know what you have to do to get help in this state, world or life, but everything is always such a fight, and struggle hust ot survive, and I dont know how much more i can bear.

Poor thing. You are just SO astoundingly caring, brave, funny, cheerful and lovely ... it's horrid to think of you suffering so much physically, besides all the husband troubles you've been through. I just wish I could help you in any way at all ... I promise I am sending all the healing, calming, strengthening vibes & prayers I can muster. And a huge, comforting HUG (((((((AW)))))))

I'm off to meditate / pray / bed now (It's 11pm over here.) Here come the warmest wishes possible that you'll wake feeling rested, refreshed & much better in the morning. Take it easy now. With love from gazelle.

AW:

Sorry you are hurting. This illness really sucks doesn't it. I had to go in and give my blood today. They only took 7 tubes full. I told the guy to be sure he keeps it for further tests coz I've not any more to give.

Hope things have calmed down a bit there. You know you must find some way to relax. The uptightedness won't let go till you do.

Best wishes 🙂
