I’ve been outlining my writing schedule. Its pretty packed, which is a good thing. I’m looking forward to writing full time. I’m looking forward to freedom. Part of that writing schedule includes this blog. I usually post about once a week but I’ve been a little lax. This will step up…I’m looking at thoughts for Mondays, reviews for Wednesdays, and recap on Fridays.
I’m officially the Denver Girl Gamer Examiner. Posting will be a little sporadic there until I’m off, but I’ve got a schedule for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday there ready to go. I hope to get some interviews lined up as well. Please check it out and comment over there!
Insurance is problematic. Apparently in the last month the insurance companies began to officially recognize PCOS. While that might sound great, they have recognized it as a red flag for immediate denial of insurance. This moves me into a high risk group. Which means no insurance for me. None. Oh wait there’s that high risk group…which means high monthly premiums and high deductibles. That lives in the realm of WTF am I paying them for? Something is not better than nothing in this case.
What really worries me is the interview Obama gave on NPR yesterday. He was talking about the things that would take effect right away and he listed off people with pre-existing conditions would be able to move to get catastrophic insurance…WTF? So that BS about making that practice illegal was a lie? That’s what happens now and it doesn’t even cover the condition. Not only will I not be able to get insurance but I’ll be taxed for not being able. Boy that’s just great…I kind of need that money to pay the health bills. Plus they want to tax anyone that has a nice insurance plan, no matter your income levels. It’s BS that they believe that insurance companies will lower prices so they won’t be taxed. They’ll just pass it on to the consumer and raise prices. They seriously expect people to leave the insurance company and take a lesser plan that won’t be taxed and probably won’t cover everything? This is fucked up.
On top of this, I have fibromyalgia. Fun Fact: Cymbalta’s side effects include the flu. Yuck. I’m leaking from every orifice and I have to tell people that no you can’t catch this flu from me. Still in pain and have the flu. Not sure how this medication will help. It’ll take six weeks to find out.
I’m still going to do this. I’m going anywhere staying where I am.
