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 […]

Post Hysterectomy – 2 Years Later

I am Obamacare Miss M. Turner giveneyestosee.com/blog

On October 5, 2011, at age 34, I went in for my Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy. It was unbelievably hard. Recovery was painful and slow. But, I was so thankful that I was able to get it in the first place. With a pre-existing condition and no health insurance coverage from my then day-job, no company […]

What’s New Pussycat?

Yeah so apparently I forgot to update after Ginger’s surgery. It went excellent. She was more cranky about having to stay in the crate for two days than anything. (She wasn’t supposed to run/jump/climb for AT LEAST two days and she was ready to be all over the place practically the moment she came home!) […]

Where Did February Go?

Here we are and it’s already March. And I realize my intentions to actually sit down and write out a blog entry in my oh-so-neglected blog last month not only never came to pass, but I didn’t even come close. Handful of photo posts….and that’s about it. Sheesh. Just seems like I’ve been so busy […]

Hysterversary

Posted by miss m on Friday, October 5, 2012 @ 3:26pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today is my one year anniversary of my Hysterectomy. It’s almost as surreal to say that as it was last year when it was happening. In so many ways, it’s hard to believe it’s been a year already. But in just as many ways, it feels like so much longer ago. I have never been […]

I am Obamacare – The Facts

Posted by miss m on Sunday, September 16, 2012 @ 8:59pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

My famous (infamous?) I am Obamacare image is going around Facebook again. Thousands of comments have been left and sadly, almost a year later, the vast majority of people are still utterly incorrect in their beliefs about what it is, who I am, and what it’s all about. They utterly and completely are working from […]

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. […]

Two Bills Paid Off

Posted by miss m on Sunday, September 9, 2012 @ 11:49am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Just made my last payment on two of my medical bills!! My Care Credit is now paid off (starting balance of $500) and my two lab bills for pre-op testing are both paid off now as well. (Starting balance of $300.) I also made a payment to my doctor so my balance is down to […]

Health Insurance

Posted by miss m on Monday, August 20, 2012 @ 12:31pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

We made a really good run at it. And it’s only through your support that I’ve been able to keep it going as long as I have. But I finally have to accept defeat and acknowledge I simply can’t pay my health insurance for August. For months, I’ve struggled to keep it going. It’s been […]

10 Months Post Op Hysterectomy

Posted by miss m on Friday, August 10, 2012 @ 12:37pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Last Sunday, August 5th marked 10 months post-op from my hysterectomy. I am getting ever closer to my 1 year and I can’t wait. To me, that’s a real hurdle to overcome and I feel like it’s the turning point I’ve been waiting for. Still, ten months is good and I’m doing really well. Scars […]

Life Updates

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 @ 11:22pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Holidays, Love, Weather |

With all the focus on my blog about healthcare following my CNN.com article, I haven’t had a chance to update what ELSE is going on in my life lately. So here’s a bullet-point rundown. Love’s Dad was in the hospital again. Last Monday, July 2nd, he went to the ER late afternoon with severe pain […]

Follow-Up – Why You Can’t Afford to Get Sick In America

Posted by miss m on Thursday, July 5, 2012 @ 11:49am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So apparently Susan Cassidy at Progressive Libertarianism saw my entry in reply to her blog entry because she has now written a new entry. She’s vaguely back-peddling now saying she wishes me well but completely missing the point that her statement was not only absurd but heartless. As such, her comments WERE idiotic. In a […]

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 […]
