Emotional Rollercoaster



Recommended Posts

Every time I feel like I'm getting somewhere I somehow am not, I get a call from my surgeons office last week saying his notes are not detailed enough for my insurance. I thought everything was cool because it had been submitted two weeks ago, been going at this process since February of this year. I had to wait till today as I'm writing this waiting in the waiting room because of course my doctor is only in the office twice a week. I woke up Sunday morning and just cried saying "I don't wanna be like this anymore" my husband comforted me and we prayed together. I still feel like this process is so long I'm starting to lose patience and hope like am I gonna finally get that call saying I'm approved and my surgery date. Need some encouragement!

I'm waiting too! As hard as it is, remember that God has the timing in His hand and if you can wait, and prepare yourself emotionally, mentally and spiritually you will rock this journey!!!!

I've been playing the insurance game for 2 years and had to switch hospitals/programs as well. My current insurance company is a royal pain to get info from, so I've had to fight for everything. At one point I was ready to give up just from the frustration of insurance, but my husband gave me a pep talk and thankfully I have renewed vigor to get what I need. It's not the fast lane, but baby steps are getting me through the process. No surgery date yet.. but getting through the requirements one by one.
