Boy did I have a pity party today.I had to go to the doc with an ingrown toenail that has been infected off and on since I went to Alabama. I think it started because I drove all day long with out cruise control, shoving that toenail in further and further. Because of having a lymph system disorder, my body is sluggish about fighting infections. But THAT is not why I had a pity party.
The doc couldn't cut the toenail out , because my toe is too infected, and all I got was a prescrption for an antibiotic. But THAT was not why I had a pity party either.
No, I had a pity party because I started dwelling on my insurance dilema. I was supposed to have to pay $134.00 monthly for it after I retired. But because I had a lapse in coverage in 06 when I took an unpaid sabbactical I was told my payment would be over $600.00 dollars a month. I protested, and insisted the LA state teacher's office be consulted.(Thought the local school board had made a mistake. I stood there while she called. It was not a mistake. They took over $600.00 out of my tiny check. So I had to cancel. Now I have no insurance.
So the pity party was a "How can they do that to me, and why couldn't I have my insurance at the cost I was quoted before I retired, and dadgummit they knew I took a year off when they did my quote, and now I had to think it over big time before I could even go to the doctor, and ....., and ......., and......."(fill in the blanks..it probably crossed my mind..)
I finally decided to buy a breadmaker, and whatayaknow...they don't have the first one. Not one. further,they are not expecting a shipment either. Blah.
Have a nice Friday!~~~~~Jackie
