Set up a payment plan with the doctor. They're usually pretty good about it. I paid off our hospital debts $25 at a time.
They don't do payment plans. If I don't pay it within 30 days, they'll charge me another $5 for every monthly statement.
That's bs!! It might be that my clinic is associated with the hospital... is yours a privately owned clinic? That might be why they do it, but it's still bs.
Yeah, it's private. That's why Hulky HATES this office. They bill slowly and then they charge you for bills. I really like the doctors though =\.
My stepmom works for a private clinic. The doctor is super nice to her patients and a complete and total rag to her employees.
I like my doctors because they have a holistic focus. They will still prescribe stuff, but it was there that I learned about using saline solutions for nasal irrigation and was encouraged to take probiotics and various supplements for my gut health instead of a prescription.
My brain is weird lately. I've got this pretty happy feeling, but there is a short temper lurking underneath. I don't let it out on anyone but myself. I find myself thinking negative thoughts, very briefly, but frequently. As soon as the thought comes up, I am surprised, and then the negative thoughts & feelings are gone. It's like my head is trying to revert to an old state, but there's just no room for it anymore. I feel very nostalgic with this rain. It's comforting, but makes me feel like something is incomplete.
I have not been able to finish a book this year. I have 3-4 started. They are all interesting to me, I just don't feel like reading anything. I miss the feeling of losing myself in a book, but I feel frustrated thinking about reading. I just don't feel like I have the attention span to get invested. I also feel a little like I don't need an escape, and that might be what my reading was primarily for in the past.
My reading comprehension has been a little off lately too. I keep misreading words. Nothing major, but it definitely wasn't happening before the past couple of weeks.
I feel a little like, if I think about it too much, I will have a mental breakdown.
Just as an FYI; I picked up the generic of Zantac and I feel a difference.

Awesome! I am hopeful. Generic drugs FTW. I take CVS' version of Allegra and took their version of Zyrtec before. I used to take Walitan (Claritin from Walgreens) and Walafed (Sudafed from Walgreens). I just love those names haha.
For all my buddies dealing with mental illness, depression, frustration, feelings of hopelessness or needing a laugh

Because I am all over-emotional and strange right now, this of course nearly made me cry.
That was alarmingly accurate... I didn't cry, but I definitely didn't laugh either... I related.
I read it from your link on FB...
In other news I tried to go totally off one of my meds... and failed.
I'm at very low dose, but evidently I need it still.
After 24 hours without it I started getting the dizzyness and strangeness in my mouth again.
I was hoping.
Oh... and glad that Zantac(generic) stack is helping with some allergies. :D
