We are well over halfway through the Chronic Illness Challenge. On day 18 we explore the question: Do you think you have become a better person through being ill? Explain.
Work got in the way once again and I fell behind in my chronic illness challenge. I am determined to see it through to the end, so I will post answers to multiple questions today to make up for the loss.
My thoughts this Thanksgiving are a bit chaotic. This is my first Thanksgiving where I will not be around family or friends. I’m not quite sure how to deal with the situation.
For some time now, I have felt exhausted frequently, and had little desire to do anything. It has been difficult for me to get things done.
Earlier this year, I switched to a cheaper insurance plan without doing a proper investigation. I should have taken the time to find out if my neurologist takes my new insurance. They did not take my new insurance, so I could not see my neurologist.
I am happy to say that I have switched to a new health insurance plan. I did my homework this time, and my neurologist does take this health insurance. I have an appointment to see her next year.
She is probably not very happy with me. I made the decision to simply wait until I have new insurance to see her again. As a result, I haven’t seen her in over 6 months.
Was I being a stubborn and rebellious patient? Probably. However, she knows my history and does a great job of monitoring my condition. It is important for me to have a specialist that I trust.
