Hooray for May!

I can’t believe that (1) it’s May already and that (2) that means it’s also now less than two weeks until my birthday!! Eek! I’ll be a whopping 37 come May 16th. 😉 Meanwhile, today is the so-called, “Star Wars Day” (May the 4th be with you!) and Love and I spent the afternoon out […]

Bandwidth

Posted by miss m on Saturday, October 12, 2013 @ 11:55am in Blog, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

In a repeat of last year when my I am Obamacare image went viral, this month’s recent re-surge in posting and popularity has once again caused my modest blog to go over my monthly bandwidth allotment. Overnight, my blog was shut down due to exceeding it’s limit. Obviously it’s back up for now but this […]

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 […]

It’s All About the Money

Posted by miss m on Sunday, October 21, 2012 @ 11:43pm in Car Issues, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Good news is that we got Love’s car fixed Friday. We’re back to a two car household and the horrible, destructive whine of the compressor grinding itself to bits is no more. The bad news is that it cost more then we planned: $789.54 I had been planning on $700 so the extra hundred hurts. […]

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 |

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 […]

Corporations vs. Toddlers

Posted by miss m on Friday, July 6, 2012 @ 7:00am in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Toddlers Toddlers are by nature selfish. The first thing that a toddler develops is the sense of self. It’s why the “Terrible Twos” are so terrible. They don’t yet comprehend anything outside of themselves; they don’t realize other people (and animals) have feelings just like they do. It’s not their fault, truly, it’s just biology. […]

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 […]
