"I'm really afraid I'm going to die in poverty. I have problems with short logical sentences. I'm bedridden and the recent trach hasn't helped. It's been traumatic to have the trach tube replaced at the ER with the bleeding and coughing."
My husband is an insurance man. Insurance companies are in the business of making a profit. If someone has an ailment, or an unhealthy habit, he gets "rated," that is, he pays a higher premium. Insurance companies rate smokers, but do not rate people exposed to "second-hand smoke." Why? Because it does not cause serious ailments. And, by the way, they do not take anyone's word on the subject. They conduct medical tests. If you are hell bent on attributing your ailments to second-hand smoke, then so be it. Your doctor may even agree with you. But like most of us he is lazy and just repeats what he hears, and maes no independent investigation.
Just a quick note to say hi! Just wanted to say I had my liver biopsy and the worrying was the worst part. They put me out for mine and I wasn't even sore the next day. So many have had a biopsy with similar results.
Welcome to our community! I apologize for being late in welcoming you to the Insomniacs Unite forum. i must admit I've been a bit neglectful in my duties of keeping an eye on the forum. For quite a while there was no activity, so I hadn't been checking to very often, but suddenly it seems to have become "active"! Sorry you also suffer with sleep problems, but glad you have joined our little forum. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have as well as provide any tips, ideas, etc., that you have found helpful in your own quest for a good night's sleep. Hopefully between all of us we can find something that will work and we can all enjoy a blissful 8 hours!
