Yesterday when we came home from Joplin, I felt bad, took a nap, woke up feeling worse. Fever, chills, terribly sore throat, which I think is from sinus drainage. I felt too bad to even go to Walmart to buy meds but Chad and Nicole had several OTC drugs so I took some of those, hardly slept at all last night. Got up this morning, took more meds, gargled with salt water and went back to bed. I felt a little better when I got up about 9 a.m. but by 1 p.m., I was feeling awful again. I had managed to go to Walmart and get more meds, though they wouldn’t use my paper temporary driver’s license to sell me the controlled meds. I had a backup plan and was able to get them.
Had fever again so I took aspirins, went back to bed and slept 4 hours. Another sleepless night? Probably!
This is when I panic because my wonderful NOT affordable NOT insurance stops when I leave the State of Texas so I can’t even see a doctor here and use my insurance. I think I can do a video chat with Doctor on Demand and the “without insurance” cost is about $75 and then I’d have to pay out of my pocket for and Rx meds. Tell me again why this insurance is so great! At least my monthly premiums went from $1,013 to $964 per month in 2019 but it really is frustrating to pay that much and have it only work in Texas.
I’m supposed to go home this week but not til towards the end of the week so let’s hope I feel 200% better in the next few days and can make that long trip.
So . . that’s my whining, belly aching post for the day! 🙁
