Mo' debt, mo' problems

August 30th, 2008 at 10:34 pm

More not so good news.

Long story short ... more blacking out, periodic numbness/tingling in face, hands and feet. The doc felt a CT scan was in order. Good news ... insurance picked up most of it. Bad news ... I still have to pay the $500 deductible. And as it's a holiday weekend, I won't know the results of the scan until next week ... Tuesday at the earliest. (Though I thought ... if it was something just terrible, they wouldn't let me leave the hospital, would they?)

So I'm scared, both because I just want to feel better and because it seems I was just beginning to truly manage my debt and now this happens. Of course, on one hand I just have to shrug and think that it WILL get paid eventually, to not stress ... on the other hand, though, I'm freaking out.

*But* I do feel somewhat better knowing that I have a supportive community here, backing me up every step of the way. It makes this news slightly more bearable. :-)

    I hope you find an answer in your test results, and just know that we are all hear for you. I have been feeling the same way as you - freaking out over issues that seem to be out of my control lately. But it DOES make things better to have a place to vent/worry/analyze etc!

    I was in your situation awhile back (ten years at least). While my symptoms were different, losing vision and hideous migraines, I had a CAT scan done which showed something in brain. They sent me to my PCP for a small scale neurology test, and they decided to do another scan with infusion. I was terrified to death of what it was going to be. I asked the nurse who was getting me ready for the MRI what would happen if it "was really bad." She smiled and said, "If it is bad, they won't left you leave." I got to leave and it turned to be a cyst in my pinneal gland (small). Never gave me issues after that (and probably wasn't the cause of my migraines).

    best of wishes and i hope you find out the results soon. yes, sometimes everything seems like it's going out of control. i feel that way sometimes. the best advice i have is that you tackle each problem as it comes, and try your hardest, if it gets overwhelming, to look at each problem by itself, not in a big group lumped together. eventually you will see the light at the end of the tunnel Smile

    I hope you soon start feeling better and get some answers to what is causing your symptoms. Take care.

    Hang in there, sometimes the worst is just not knowing what the problem is.
