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 […]

New At PhoenixFire Designs

Posted by miss m on Thursday, July 12, 2012 @ 5:45pm in Finances, General Blather, PhoenixFire Designs, Photography and Pics |

I’ve been busy making both new items, as well as new versions of previously sold items. But I’ve been lax about posting those updates here in the blog. (Though I’ve posted some on PhoenixFire Designs blog and more on PhoenixFire Designs Facebook page. Those are two good resources to get more up-to-the-minute updates. 😉 But […]

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 […]

The Facts About Medicaid And Other Health Care Options

Posted by miss m on Saturday, July 7, 2012 @ 12:28am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

So many people are so badly mistaken on what programs and options are out there for low income individuals and/or households as it pertains to health care options. I’ve literally lost count of the number of people who “know for a fact” that I and millions like me could have simply qualified for other programs […]

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 […]

Post Hysterectomy – 8 Months Post Op

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, June 13, 2012 @ 12:09am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

I haven’t updated in awhile so I thought I’d post another photo of the healing progress. June 5th was eight months post op from my Total Laparoscopic Hysterectomy (TLH) and my incisions are looking really good. The main scar on my left (viewer right) is fading nicely and is much less red then it was. […]

This, That and The Other

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, May 15, 2012 @ 11:21pm in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, M's Birthday, Sickness and Health Issues |

Love & the Neurologist Yesterday (Monday the 14th) Love had his follow-up with the neurologist. Turns out the CT scan he had done a few weeks ago was perfectly normal. See, Love has this “whooshing” which kinda pulses in his right ear. Had it for years. But, when the whole vertigo-turned-out-to-be-migraines attacks started a year […]

Post Hysterectomy – Almost 6 Months

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, March 14, 2012 @ 3:05pm in General Blather |

Today is day 161 or 5.75 months since my surgery. Next week will be 6 months since my hysterectomy. Crazy to think six months has gone by already! In an effort to continue to help those looking for information and healing timelines for a hysterectomy, here’s where I am at. At six months, you are […]

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 […]

Quality of Life

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 @ 8:11pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Yesterday, I shared the Assumptions people make about me based on their preconceived notions and health care expenses. Today, I’m expanding on that topic to Quality of Life. Besides “knowing” all the money I obviously waste on doing my nails, having a fancy new car, buying iPhones, etc. people also have other “helpful” suggestions about […]

Assumptions

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, January 17, 2012 @ 8:20pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

One of the worst parts of my “I am ObamaCare” images going viral is the asinine assumptions people make. Honestly, it’s just absurd the things people will say. I get some people don’t agree with the Affordable Heathcare Act and while I can’t fathom why anyone thinks our current system is working, it’s their right […]
