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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bisy Backson

Posted by miss m on Sunday, January 15, 2012 @ 12:22pm in Family, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues |

Been so busy this past week with recovering from my food poisoning/ER trip and Love’s surgery Thursday. The anti-nausea and anti-diarrhea medications they gave me made me dizzy. The anti-nausea one is normally prescribed for people going through chemo! I wasn’t allowed to drive on the meds and I had to take them for 3 […]

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 […]

Fun Monday But Dreading Tuesday

Posted by miss m on Monday, December 5, 2011 @ 11:19pm in Family, Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Love, Sickness and Health Issues, Work |

Normally Mondays are the day no one likes. But today, I hung out with my Mom so it was a good day. We went to the mall and shopped and browsed and tried things on and just generally had a nice time. Found a pair of capris and a pair of shorts on clearance and […]

Quick Week’s Recap (So Far)

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 @ 7:24pm in Customer Service, General Blather, Holidays, Hysterectomy, Love, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Brief overview of this week’s events… Monday – Hematologist Hematologist appointment. Got there and told the receptionist as I was signing in that I needed to speak to someone in billing to sort out my insurance billing issue (they’re billing me out of network resulting in 100% due instead of in-network and 20% due.) I […]

The Cost of A Hysterectomy in America

Posted by miss m on Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 11:40pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

All of my bills have been coming in lately. But one of them really drives home just how expensive surgery truly is and why for people without insurance, things like this are utterly impossible to obtain. And I wanted to share it to help illustrate why I support Health Care Reform. This is why I […]

I am off restrictions and unless I have any problems, I don’t have to go back until next June for my regular […]

6 Week Post Op Hysterectomy

Posted by miss m on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 2:03pm in Finances, General Blather, Hysterectomy, Photography and Pics, Sickness and Health Issues |

Today is 6 weeks from surgery. Tomorrow I have my 6-week appointment with my doctor to see how I’m healing up. It’s a big stage in the healing since, if all is well, I get a lot more restrictions lifted and can get back to almost normal activities. Even though at 6 weeks you are […]
