Arrrgh!

When my Insurance company and the Enbrel company are butting heads on a new payment protocol that’s not working. I’m left without my meds. I called last Friday to renew the script. I found out Tuesday there was an issue. It’s now Thurs. and the issue still isn’t resolved. Tomorrow is when I’m due for my next Enbrel injection and I’ve got none left. I called in what should have been lots of time to have it by now.

If that’s not enough, I shipped a package to a customer Monday it should have been to them Tues. or Wed. at latest. It’s still not to them. So long story short, at this point the package is lost in the mail. No one knows where it is and my poor first time customer is anxiously awaiting it. This does not make me look good to a new customer.

Sometimes I wish things could just be easier, even once in a while. I’m so tired of battling. Battling for answers, for Dr.’s, for meds. If something would go right even once in a while it would be nice. That reminds me, I now have to try and get through to my Internists office. Wish me luck, that’s always a crap shoot.

Yep like yesterday two times, no answer today. If I a leave message they never return my call. I need to know if I need to stop a med before my scopes and how long before. Fat chance I’ll get an answer.

At least we have sun today after getting 50 cm of snow last week and  temperatures that were at -50 c (-58 f).

*Update: Something went right. Not only did I get through to the Internists office on the third try but, and this never happens, they called me back in 15 mins. with an answer. The Dr. just happened to be walking by the secretaries desk just after I called so she asked him. I don’t really have to stop the med at all which is bonus, but I will stop it on the prep day because it does the opposite of what the prep does, so it just doesn’t make sense to me not too. 

Sunny days & Less winter,

  1. Maybe they should include psychiatric treatment with Enbrel, with all the stress and suspense they put you through, to get it.

    -58 F seems impossible. I wonder if the package you sent may have frozen solid then broken into a million pieces. Or maybe that happened to the poor guy who was supposed to deliver it. Let’s hope spring is right around the corner.

    1. Oh and thank you by the way. I’m so glad something went right yesterday too. It’s so stressful calling docs and knowing they won’t answer or get back to you. I have a huge phobia of the medical world so it takes everything in me to even makes calls.
