I still do not have insurance. I can’t really apply for anything until I get a new neurologist. Since my Rhuematologist moved away I’m kind of in a bind. The new Rheumatologist tried to discredit everything my old one had accomplished with me. She even wanted to take away my meds. I’m not sure how much longer she will refill, which is pretty scary. The other day I missed almost 2 full days of meds and the results were horrible! Pain was insane and my head twitching was worse. I can not be without the meds I am on.
All of this is so stressful and scary! I know that if I can get a new neurologist and they confirm my diagnosis that I would qualify for Medicare. Medicare isn’t just for those 65 and over. It is also for those that are permanently physically disabled or who have a congenital physical disability. I think I fall into that category…what about you? The last few days I had a lot of trouble walking again. Even blogging is extremely difficult right now. I had a dose of my meds last night and 2 so far today. I think it will take a few days to get back to a tolerable level.
Even when (and if) I do get medicare, I can not be certain that it will cover all of my doctors, medicine and treatments. So thinking about all this today got me looking into Medicare supplement plans. Something that I may need. Do you know anything about those?
My birthday is this month…another year older…woohoo…
