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 […]

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 […]

Difference A Year Can Make

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 @ 11:19am in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Sickness and Health Issues |

Exactly one year ago today, I was doing my surgery pre-op. I had my final ultrasound with my gyno, registered at the hospital, was given my surgical date and time, met with the anesthesiologist and even had my living will/medical directive notarized. I was two days away from my surgery and these were the final […]

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 […]

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 […]

I am STILL Obamacare

Posted by miss m on Saturday, March 24, 2012 @ 1:13am in General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

And I’ve been featured on the official Obama For America tumblr page! (click for larger) The image of course, is from the entry, I am ObamaCare that I initially posted in October 2011, but went viral in January 2012. Now, with the 2nd anniversary of the Affordable Care Act (or “ACA”), the President is collecting […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
