Dr. G. took out two more sutures which reduces the blurriness considerably. A little progress at a time is better than none at all.
We discussed how the insurance is refusing to fill the Rx for eyedrops until a certain number of days, which is set by the accountants or whomever it is at Blue Cross who determines these things. I told him I would like to get my meds from Mexico, and he confided that he gets his from Canada. I’ve checked the few prescription meds I take, and it would cost me much more to get them from Canada. I have a good insurance plan, although they are getting tighter on refills and how long they determine a prescription should last.
Do any of my readers get their meds from Mexico in the mail? I know you can walk into a pharmacy there and bring back a 6 month supply of meds, but I really can’t afford to make a trip to Mexico. Just wondering if anyone has found a source they trust, and if so I’d appreciate an email response.
I have been feeling like a limp dishrag lately – I have cramps and pressure in my lower abdomen, right where my bladder is. I don’t have any other symptoms, no fever or any symptoms of a kidney or bladder infection, so I don’t know what it could be. I find I want to sleep a lot more and have been napping during the day, which I don’t like to do. I also do NOT want to visit my doctor until and unless other symptoms appear. As I replied to one reader, the entire Medicare system would move towards bankruptcy with all the tests that would be ordered, “just to rule ‘it” out”. I don’t feel like serving as a guinea pig for all their hi-tech equipment. Medicare has been the best thing that has happened for senior citizens, and it is going to fail because of waste, fraud and abuse by doctors and equipment manufacturers. My opinion – you may not agree.
I stopped at the Apple Store after my doctor’s appointment, to see what could be causing a couple of problems I’m having, including not being able to see many of the photos posted on other’s blogs. The tech asked me if he could adjust my screen and I agreed, but I hate it. Everything is scrunched to one side of the screen and all the print is greatly reduced in size. I can take care of the print size for some things, but this even affects the tool bar. My vision isn’t all that great to begin with, and now it’s more difficult for me to see, plus I don’t see why I need a 17″ screen if everything is condensed into 13″ of screen. But I am a technological dinosaur, so what do I know. I may fool with it but then I’ll probably screw it up and make it worse.
Finally, on a higher note, I witnessed a very nice thing this morning while walking Lady. A man and woman were approaching on the bike/walking trail, and the woman carried several plastic trash bags. She was picking up trash along the way, including old coffee cups, plastic bags, and who knows what else. I think it is so edifying to see a citizen getting involved in trying to make their area of the world a cleaner place.
