SLAP Tear – Surgery, Recovery, And Asking for Help

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 31, 2017 @ 11:13pm in Blog, Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

On Friday, July 28th, following an MRI Arthrogram, I was diagnosed with a SLAP Tear; specifically, “Left superior labral tear extending along the posterior superior quadrant.” I’m going to need surgery which is going to leave me with one arm for months, unable to drive, work, or support myself in anyway. So I’m asking for […]

And There Went July

Posted by miss m on Monday, July 29, 2013 @ 12:02am in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Grief, kitties |

So…yeah. Another month [nearly] gone and only a lone entry thus far to mark it’s passage. That’s just sad. I’ve been meaning to write an entry for like two weeks now but it never seems like I have the time. Plus, summers are dull in Florida; all the locals hibernate from the sweltering heat and […]

Paid In Full

Posted by miss m on Saturday, September 29, 2012 @ 11:22am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

You might recall the I posted about a $188 bill back on September 13th. It was the leftover amount for the Radiologist when I went into the ER and was going into collection. It needed to be paid off within 30 days or it was going on my credit. Well, I’m excited to report I […]

Urgent $188 Goal

Posted by miss m on Thursday, September 13, 2012 @ 11:26am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues |

Hot on the heels of paying off two bills the other day, I get a collection notice. This is the remainder of the bill from the radiologist during my initial ER visit on May 29th. I have less then 30 days to raise $188 to pay this bill off, or it goes on my credit. […]

Why You Can’t Afford To Get Sick Without Healthcare In America

Posted by miss m on Saturday, June 30, 2012 @ 2:24pm in Blog, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Susan Cassidy at Progressive Libertarianism is an idiot. From my feature on CNN, there is this quote from a naysayer on the issue: “Her hand written letter says nothing of her having the freedom to get the service and pay out of pocket, at possibly an outrageous cost, but get the life-saving service none-the-less,” writes […]

Boring Weekend

Posted by miss m on Sunday, April 29, 2012 @ 12:43pm in Finances, General Blather, Love, M's Birthday, PhoenixFire Designs, Sickness and Health Issues, Weather |

Nothing really to talk about, hence the lack of posts in a few days again. Just more of bullet-point comments than anything, so here goes: Love’s CT scan The neurologist wanted to get it done to see if they could track down the source of the throbbing/whooshing/pulsing problem he has in his right ear. Doc […]

16 Weeks

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 25, 2012 @ 11:54am in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

I had to go back and count because I hadn’t been keeping exact track lately but today is 16 weeks since my hysterectomy. That seems like such a long time ago. But in many ways, it’s very recent. I think I’ve finally reached a point where the aches and pains part of the healing are […]

Weekend

Posted by miss m on Monday, January 23, 2012 @ 12:31am in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I spent most of Friday just in a serious funk. Kept crying because of the damned collection letter. It’s like, why even bother trying to be responsible and pay everyone off if I’m just going to get screwed over and ruin my credit anyway? Everything is stacked against you as the debtor and they make […]

Collections

Posted by miss m on Friday, January 20, 2012 @ 5:51pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So, even though the debt started as $1,200 and it’s down to $930 and I’ve been paying every month, apparently the “fact” that so long as you pay they can’t send you to collections is an urban myth. Every single person I’ve ever talked to both in person and online said just pay it each […]

Saturday Rest

Posted by miss m on Sunday, January 8, 2012 @ 12:49pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

I got more than a little overwhelmed on Friday when the links, emails, mentions, tags and hits just flooded in. It was crazy. So Saturday, Love and I took a day completely off the interwebs. We took a drive over to Orlando, talked, walked around, window shopped, people watched, had a burger, watched some fireworks […]

The Face of ObamaCare?

Posted by miss m on Friday, January 6, 2012 @ 1:08pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

How crazy it is to me that my “I am ObamaCare” image has gone so viral. Especially three months after initially posting it! The other day, it made it’s way onto MoveOn.org and today, it’s on DailyDot.com You can read the article here. I’m amazed and excited to find my simple image is making such […]
