I’ve had a terrible awful no-good very bad day. And I’m just tired of it.
The great news just keeps on coming from the insurance company. First they let me go through the whole preparatory process with the surgeon’s office, and then when they submit the paperwork for approval, the insurance company informs them that the procedure has to be performed at a blue distinction center of excellence (I guess that’s some BC/BS kind of thing), and none of the surgeons at the facility I’ve been using have operating privileges there. They were still majorly helpful, and faxed all my paperwork over to the doctor I was refered to. I have an appointment next Monday. Thinking there was only a few weeks’ delay, I only groaned a little at the new batch of paperwork I have to fill out (and that I’ve filled out multiple times now). But today I read in there that even if the insurance company doesn’t require 6 months consecutive physician-supervised weight loss attempts, the surgeon’s office does. I double-checked, and they said that BC/BS, even if they don’t *say* they require it, really does. So now I’m looking at an additional 6 months. I could cry. In fact, I have.
Plus my job is going away. I’m not getting laid off or anything, so that sounds a little worse than it is. But the job functions I’ve been doing for the last 3 and a half years are all going away. And no one can tell me what I’ll be doing next week, because no one really knows. More stress.
Crazy winds blowing, so my allergies are acting up. My nose is running like crazy and my throat is very painful. More stress.
And I can’t even walk without having moderate to severe pain in my knees and ankles, which makes exercising pretty much impossible until I get some weight off. I’ve done it before, and I don’t know why I’m having such a horrible time of it.
All in all, as I said, terrible awful no-good very bad day.
Sorry to whinge.
