I’ve been doing a lot of waiting lately.
Waiting for my medical reimbursement card to be reinstated. At least once a year there’s some sort of SNAFU that requires they put a hold on my card until it is sorted out. Since I have to FAX in my paperwork, occasionally it doesn’t go through. Once I knew what happened I re-faxed my paperwork, only for them to decline my claim. I then had to snail-mail a check to cover the balance. Of course, this happens just before a medical procedure and refilling my quarterly prescriptions, so I had to pay out-of-pocket and submit paperwork after the fact hoping that they’ll reimburse me. Thankfully, my card went live again in time for my prescriptions, but I’ll spend some time this afternoon filing the rest of the medical paperwork. *sigh*
Waiting for my new glasses. It’s really hard for me to read print right now, so I’ve been re-watching old M*A*S*H episodes in my down time. Hopefully I should get my bifocals this week. *crosses fingers*
Waiting for test results. See above medical procedure. A diagnosis is hanging on this, and I’d really like to have some idea where I’m going from here. Other prescriptions also hang on this dx. I’ll run out in two days and need to know if I need to request a refill or if they’re putting me on something else.
In good news, I successfully completed my online course and resulting in a certificate that will look good on my resume. I worked my butt off on this and I’m really proud of the results. I also feel more confident about continuing my education online and may look for another course in the fall.
I interviewed and have been accepted into a medical study for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis to assess how physical therapy can help address chronic pain. It starts in May and I’ll meet with a support group weekly. I’ll post when I have more details- there are some things I might not be able to share due to confidentiality.
Now that the course is over I have some creative writing on the back burner I’d like to catch up on, although most of my creative juices have gone into making a fun character for the role-playing game running at our house on Saturdays. Still, it’s a fun goal. :}
