Do you know what ‘come to Jesus’ time is? It’s truth time! I’m sure you’ve had many of these types of discussions with your parents, children, spouses, etc…tell the truth and no bullshit allowed, no excuses. So here I go…
I’ve been in a mediocre flare for the last week. Just enough pain to put me in bed for a few hours a day. No fibro fog with this flare. Kinda makes it difficult as you are a-w-a-r-e of everything going on around you but you can’t participate. So… I am extremely agitated and trigger happy. DON’T FLINCH BECAUSE I WILL SHOOT! (Sorry for yelling.)
My doctor is quitting, she still hasn’t contacted me, and I’m thinking she won’t. My dogs need baths and haircuts, but it is 20 below zero daily! That’s not happening. What the hell happened to global warming? My husband and I had the “talk.” No. Not that one, the other one about money. The tricky part is to remember it’s just math, and numbers are black and white.
I thought it would be a good idea to refuse to pay my medical expenses for a nightmare hospital stay I experienced in September 2018. Last week a bill collector finally called, so I blocked the number (like that’ll fix the problem) and sent in a small payment. A VERY SMALL PAYMENT! (Sorry I yelled, again.) I have concluded this was not a good idea. I suggest you don’t follow my lead…
Then, the creme de la creme, I posted this on FaceBook:
I figured if I wrote it by ‘Furiously Fed Up’ no one would know I was the one who wrote it. Brilliant! Yeah, that didn’t work. I believe it was my mom who first commented with “got it.” And then the commenters followed with concern. My bestie even called to make sure I was OK. I don’t recommend posting anything on Facebook when you are two days into pain killers. (Note to self!)
In the end, I know my flare will end. I will find a new doctor. I won’t shoot anyone. Talking about money is not a bad thing. I will end up paying the stupid medical bills. Most importantly, I was having a ‘come to Jesus’ moment and I meant every word by Furiously Fed Up!!!
Is it really only Tuesday?
Live your best life!
