Nutrition Friday & Health Insurance

Nutrition Clinic today to weigh in.  Earlier I mentioned that I've started a diet to lose weight, and get back my health.  Right now I'm on 11 pills a day.  One of course is my multi-vitamin (I get at Aldi's), and another is Calcium pills  (also Aldis), twice a day for my Osteoporosis.  I'm  supposed to be taking a pill for that on Saturdays, but it looks like I won't be because I have two doctors fighting over who should refill it.  My Ortho says my GP can fill it now that I don't come to him anymore, and my GP says the Ortho should refill it because he prescribed it.  Tsk Tsk Children.  

I'm on disability, and Medicare pays for a large portion of my medical bills, but since the back surgery etc. I have Aetna Medicare, which is a supplement, and costs $200 a month (I'm too young for AARP).  I received a letter from Aetna stating they are no longer going to insure people in Kane County & I would need to switch carriers, and sent me a list to choose from.  I called Humana and come January I will have Humana and I get to stay with my same doctors.  Woo Hoo That's very cool, and better yet it is for FREE!  Oh, Happy Day!

Right now though I'm in a donut hole with my prescription refills and I had to switch many prescriptions over to Walmart to try and get their $4 plan.  So, far it's working and only had to change a few.  Medicine is extremely costly.  My heart pill alone cost $102 per month, but it's all straightened out now.  I don't want to tell you that long boring story, but I will say I really had to work for it.

Back to my weight.  I lost another 4.2 lbs.  Woo Hoo (applause goes here)... okay, it's not much, but at least I didn't gain 4.2lbs.  So, I broke that ice I'm under 260 now & I weigh 256.2 lbs.  Okay, next time I'd like to be under 250.  WISH ME LUCK!  Next appointment 3 wks.
