Depression



My home health nurse came this morning and got me all set up and washed up and ready for the day…the day consisting of nothing but lying in bed (a skill I’ve recently perfected) and some delicious TPN. I have hives, and I don’t know why. I thought my dad and brother would be home with me all day, but they were both gone all day. My dad was working and running errands, and my brother was doing something S.C.U.B.A. related and then hanging out with his girlfriend for the remainder of the day.

When my dad finally came home, he started paying bills and then cooking while we watched Family Guy. After that, we watched Superman together, then America’s Got Talent, and finally So You Think You Can Dance. During this time, my mom came home. She came home angry. She became even angrier upon discovering that one of my GENERIC medications after insurance cost $65 for a week’s supply. She went off. She started cussing (my mom usually doesn’t curse at all) and yelling at everyone in the house. My dad and I just gave each other a “menopause is a b*tch” look. And my dad calmly agreed to take the medication back while my mom sorted through our insurance formulary information.

Speaking of insurance, the appeal that was “denied” was denied before they even got our appeal. Also, we may have sent it to the wrong address, so we will try sending it to the other address. Hopefully this works this time, because I’m too broke for all of this nonsense.

All in all, even though I was feeling depressed today, I’m so flippin’ glad to be home!
