Sniffle. Cough cough. I've been out of commission for the past couple of days with one hell of a virus. It started off Monday like a regular cold, but Tuesday morning I had a fever of almost 100. As someone with generally lower-than-98.6 body temperature, I was pretty uncomfortable. Yesterday brought more coughing, stuffiness, a huge headache, relief from the fever, then dizziness. Then, a trip to the doctor. My super-nice PCP informed me I have the nasty cold that's going around, and she gave me some prescription decongestant/cough medicine.
Today I am at work. I can't say that I feel great, but I'm here, trying to catch up.
Remember my insurance woes? Soon, we're getting new group coverage through our employer. Just when I finally had everything fixed! Well, almost, then there was the issue of how I owe MiniMed some money and they put a hold on my account. Of course, their billing sucks, so I thought I was in the clear. I made a partial payment over the phone today, so I am only a few days away from a big ol' box of shiny new supplies! Huzzah!
Sign-ups for the new insurance plan are tomorrow. According to a co-worker who's been to an earlier meeting this week, co-pays on everything diabetes-related are $10. Considering that Humalog and test strips on my current plan are about $30 in co-pay each, it's maybe enough to make me click my heels.
Speaking of heel-clicking, today is droning on, and I still have plenty to catch up on, so I will just keep thinking, "There's no place like home. There's no place like home." until it's 5-something and time to hit the road!
