Yes, as crazy as it is, I’ve been actually counting down the minutes til my Medicare starts. This will probably be even crazier but I’m wondering if part of why I’ve been sick so much lately . . because I am NEVER sick . . is because I’ve been so worried about getting sick while I had this awful insurance.
Several times tonight, I’ve told Vince how many hours til Medicare starts. He said “Are you worried?” I said “Yes, I could have a heart attack or something before Medicare starts!”
Here’s the funny thing. In July when I was taking a med that made my blood pressure go sky high, Vince and I decided to go to the ER but we were going to the hospital in Abilene – 90 minutes away. I said “I’m going to wind some yarn first because if they keep me, I need a project.” He wasn’t happy about that, but I did it. Then we got to Abilene and he said “They aren’t going to let you eat!” I said “Let’s go eat first!” and we did. We went to Chick-Fil-A and ate, then went to the ER – fully belly and yarn for knitting.
So, while ago, I said “1 hour, 15 minutes!” He said “But, if we left right now, you’d have Medicare by the time we got there. I said “Does that include stopping at Chick-Fil-A to eat?”
So, I think I’m going to make it to midnight without having any medical issues! 🙂
