Whenever the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and all living creatures of every kind on the earth." Genesis 9:13

My new job

I don't feel like I have a ton to say lately.  I'm spending a great deal of time trying to get financial assistance grants for medical care.  It appears that Dr. Body may be available via grant.  I'm waiting to hear back.  I also can get help with applying for medication assistance through the foundation he works for as soon as I have my letter showing I have SSDI.  I also am trying to see any doctor that I may need a check-up with in the next 6-22 months. And then the really distasteful stuff I have put off is upon me:  fighting with the phone company, calling the insurance to find out if I can keep my COBRA dental and vision when I dump the medical.  Going years without dental is not a good idea for me since I crack teeth frequently requiring crowns and root canals.

I got brave enough today to add up my new budget.  It wasn't as scary as I thought.  This is assuming that I get med assistance.  I have a program I can get into at $18/month and $18/script but that still adds up.  I am also going to try to get a grant to help pay for Dr. Mind.  Please pray for each of these, most especially that I can keep seeing Dr. Mind.  And the grants.  Whatever.

Along with this I had support group tonight and made it.  Seems good.  More on that one later.

I'm midway through an antivirus scan on the computer that has been freezing and shutting down.  It has found 2 viruses and I am praying that I can just keep the machine on long enough for the whole scan.  Since the scan has been running 3 hours and is at 30% I'm doing well but if the insomnia decides to lift tonight (ha) I'm going to lose it.  I guess if I have to start all over during the day I can.  Besides I'm way too wide awake today.

This week has felt busy.  Of course I lost a day to mixed up memory which can't have helped.  I just so much wish I were sleeping.  Somehow I have a feeling it would make the rest of this easier.

I absolutely have no idea what I meant to write here.  I had something in mind when I opened the file.

Coming soon:  I'm going to put together either a page of this  or a specific webpage with some of what I know from the SSDI procedure as well as information specifically from my paperwork and Dr. Mind's (Dr. Brain's if she did any) because I think that a lot of people try to emphasize the positive to their detriment.  I have plenty of negative statements.

Anyway, I am starving.  I kind of forgot to eat today.  I did get McDonald's apples but they had so much chemical on them that they had a crazy texture and no taste.  Bizarre.

Oh, the other thing....I'm developing a new variation of my gyn. issues from last year.  Now I have 9 day periods, about 2 weeks, another 9 day period, 2 weeks, etc.  It's more evidence the Mirena might as well come out but someone really, really needs to find a way to not bleed excessively.  I think this is causing a lot of mood swings as well.

Yes, you appear to have a new job. Your productivity amazes me. I didn't know you were also coping with "female problems." THAT'S not good; mood swings indeed.

You're going to be a grant writer. You sure have many talents and skills, Jen! I'm very proud of you.

Thanks for the specific information about prayers. Maybe Dr. Mind will actually get paid more than before.

Bless you! Michal
