Taking Matters Into My Own Hands

I had a horrible night last night.  Didn't go to sleep until 1:00 a.m..  My experiment with the TV was skewed to say the least.

Because the insurance company is taking so long to start paying me for my lost wages on workers comp, my mind ran away with me and I started thinking about not being able to pay my bills and what would result from that.  I could not shut my brain off.

After a couple of hours of that, I decided it was time to take action.  Waiting for the lawyer to fit me in to his undoubtedly heavy case load is not working for me, so I wrote to the adjuster myself.  I was nice about it, but I told him that I have done my part and I have a legitimate injury and I at least deserve a response of some kind.  

Lo and behold, when I got up this morning, there was a response from the adjuster.  He apologized and told me that he had been waiting for a wage statement from my employer so he could get payments started.  He said he was hesitant to speak with me directly, in light of the fact that I had hired an attorney.  I can appreciate that, I suppose.  

He said that if I could supply him with a wage statement for the weeks prior to my injury, that he would get it submitted immediately for payment.  I am a mad organizer when it comes to paperwork, so I readily,  and easily,  supplied him with copies of all of my pay statements for the time period he requested.

We will see if he follows through on his promise. ;-)

Tomorrow I go in for my angioplasty.  My next hurdle is getting through it without any more complications.  My biggest fear is that they'll say they can't unblock the artery and they'll have to do a by-pass.  Nothing of the kind has been brought up by any of the doctors, but I went through this with my Mister, so I'm aware that it can happen.

I have to be at the hospital at 6:00 a.m., so I'm going to spend the day mentally preparing for that.  I also want to get some cleaning done so I can wind down for a couple of days, emotionally.  I have a long 30 days ahead before I can get my shoulder fixed.

God has my back.
