Breathe deep - let it out and count your blessings, Kel!
Paperwork: Lately, My life has been bombarded with paperwork.
New car insurance paperwork - Return phone calls taking longer than they should, which in turn holds up the whole car purchasing process.
Things like new health insurance paperwork, which has resulted in me spending an inordinate amount of time:
1. Calling up my DME companies, pharmacy & Doctors offices with new insurance card ID numbers and the likes there of
2. Paperwork as in figuring out how why I now must pay 167.50 every 3 months for test strips and close to $300 every 3 months for pump supplies when I used to pay zero.
3. New insurance means my Dr. MUST write written preauthorization for the 1 name brand drug I take instead of it automatically being approved.
On the plus side, my monthly health insurance premium is half of what it used to be - And I’m so grateful for that, I really am.
But, my deductible is now much higher, which leaves me feeling like the three steps I’ve taken to move forward are immediately followed by two steps back.
And I’m STILL waiting for said insurance (old and new are from the same company) to pay claims from 2012 - Don’t even get me started.
Still - It's better than it was - I need to focus on the better.
Finally getting a new car is a great thing, a needed thing and I'm grateful for being able to get one.
Health insurance is major necessity that I’m grateful to have and be able to pay for.
Another work contract on the horizon makes me feel good in all dimensions.
Why am I writing about this?
Mostly to keep myself from going crazy from all the paper work - And to remind myself that the "Road to better' isn't always a smooth one, but it's totally worth it.
Sometimes we just need to remember that sometimes the lesson's in the journey that directly ollows the paperwork ;)
