Still Able To Surprise Me

When I got hurt on the job over 13 years ago, I never would have imagined that I’d still be fighting my case to this day… and especially to the extent that it seems to be going. πŸ˜• I just opened my mail from the past few days, and one of the envelopes was a bunch of new paperwork that I need to sign and return to my attorneys due to things escalating. Not necessarily in a bad way… I mean, it’s following a traditional path I suppose… but man, I really don’t understand why my case is worthy of such fuss. 😟

I feel like my case is probably no different than thousands of other cases, and I imagine most injured workers feel similar to the way that I do. πŸ€” We suffer the injury, we have a surgery, and if left with a disability afterwards – which I was – we just want to be able to get the medications that will allow us the most ability and the least pain, even though there’s not gonna be any “full ability” or “no pain” days ever again. 😐 All we can hope for, ask for, fight for… is a doctor that can come up with a plan that treats the remaining problems as best as possible, which I found, and that the workers comp coverage agrees that it is needed and allows it.

That could get expensive for the insurer, but that doesn’t seem unreasonable to me. (That’s why it’s there, no?)

But I’ve got some reading to do, and I really don’t wanna get into it any further than thatΒ  here anyway. It would have been nice if this new development could have waited to show up until after Christmas, but I know better than most – that this stuff is gonna move along at whatever pace it chooses, whether it be slow, fast, or anywhere in between. πŸ™„ It is what it is. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ I’ll just handle it tomorrow and then try to put it out of my mind until it actually needs my attention again. Not gonna spend my holiday worrying…
