October 31, 2013 Thursday Afternoon

This morning I was up by 7 AM.  Fed the dogs and gave Vito his shot.  Vito is doing good.  He is eating like he should and getting around fine.  He sleeps a lot but that is normal after surgery and with the pain medicine.  It rained all day today which does not give me energy to do much.  I did go to Walgreen's this morning to pick up a prescription and then went to Home Depot to buy a door stopper.  Was on the Internet and phone with insurance help from the Affordable Care Act.  The Insurance guy was little help and made this whole thing so overwhelming I was in tears by the time we got off the phone.  I have no clue what they are saying about donut holes in my part D and wrap around policies and what they all cover.  I used to be able to run a store.  Now my mind can not even compare two insurance policies or follow simple instructions as I am talking to someone on the phone and working on the Internet.  It was so frustrating and overwhelming.  It has to be the meds I am on which really was noticeable today as I tried to do simple things and make decisions.  Broke down and called my counselor at ARCW and she returned my call within the hour.  She is going to help me with all this new insurance and what ADAP will cover next week when we meet.  My fear is that as of January 1st I will have no health coverage or meds coverage and how will I afford over $1000 worth of HIV meds for one month much less the monthly premium for the policies?   Laid in bed with the dogs for a while to clear my head and stop the anxiety.  Making a Oncore pork roast, mashed potatoes and corn with a salad tonight for supper.  Will most likely spend the night catching up on the past two episodes of American Horror Story or one of the other 30 or more shows on the DVR. 


  1. Stop worrying. The ARCW folks are great and will help you get it all sorted out.

  2. your not the only one upset. he has changed his mind on so many things and it is making people upset. just hang in there.
