It was sloooow getting going for me today. I pushed my stubbornness one day too far, and not having my meds in my system (in the correct amount and combination) resulted in me feeling like shit all night, netting a whopping three hours of sleep, followed by feeling like ass all morning – while trying to work up the “oomph” to head in to the pharmacy to begrudgingly pay for the rest of my workers comp prescriptions myself. 😐😑
The “I don’t have my meds, so I feel like ass, and since I feel like ass, I’m struggling to go get my meds” Paradox. 😏
I really thought that WC would approve payment for at least one of my prescriptions this month, just so it wouldn’t look like they were totally trying to bend me over… but nope. 😒 Every single one of them was out-of-pocket again this month. I’ve gotta believe that they wouldn’t just stick it to me without having their ass covered though, so I bet I’ll learn in the next few days why things have changed so drastically, and why I might just have to deal with it for now.
I did get to speak with someone at my lawyer’s office though, and was able to schedule a meeting with my lead attorney at the start of next week. 🤓👨🏻💼 It’ll be an anxious few days wait, because the way things are now… it’s worse than when I had to fight at the IC hearings, because at least then I was winning. 😣😟 I’m afraid that I’m just going to hear an explanation of why this is happening, versus a solution that will change it.
Meh… gotta try to stay optimistic, I know. *deep sigh* It’s been a couple hours now, and I’m still waiting for the meds to kick in. It’ll take a bit longer since I had to go without, so this afternoon will be a grumpy one – as my shoulder feels more irritated and my stomach continues to act funny. 🤢😞 I’m sure that once I’m feeling better I won’t be nearly as pessimistic as I’m probably being right now. My team has never steered me wrong before, so I’m sure (well, pretty sure) that this time won’t be any different. 🙂
Okay… gonna try to remain chill, take care of my shoulder, and keep the day from turning to shit. 😏🤷🏻♂️
