Oh, Booger

Guess who’s being jerked around again on meds?

Last month, I had to get paperwork faxed to the insurance company to indicate that my pain management doc is writing my scripts because the primary doesn’t do that. Took forever to get my meds approved, but it finally happened.

This month? “You were never approved for pain management. And, oh, by the way, you have a new adjuster for your case. Her number is blah blah blah blah blah. Also, you have to have your attorney take care of this.”

First off, my case was settled and stipulated for continuing medical, so pain management is included. Also, I don’t really have an attorney any longer because see last sentence. As far as that new adjuster and the phone number? Went right back to the same woman who told me I had a new adjuster.

I’ve finally started to acclimate to the meds after two months and now it looks like I’ll be off all of them again, which means I’ll have to deal with the SSRI discontinuation syndrome bullshit. As well, I have faire this weekend and I need the meds to get through all the standing, moving, and activities that go along with the event.

Can you say “pissed”? I knew you could.


I shouldn’t have to go through this every fucking month. My body shouldn’t have to deal with the ups and downs that come with medication adjustments every few months that the insurance company decides to play games.

The doctor’s office is doing what they can to help push the scripts through for approval, but it doesn’t look like it’ll happen before I leave.



  1. OMG! My head would explode with the anger and frustration…! Not again!!! :/

    (((HUG))) If anyone can power through this, it’s you. But dammit, you shouldn’t have to…

  2. I don’t know if I can this time. It’s been pretty shaky the last couple months. Both King Arthur and I have been pushed to the breaking point with the amount of time it’s taken to get settled in.

  6. Just got the next three months taken care of. At least that’s what it sounded like happened on the super mega conference call. Had the adjuster on the phone along with the pharmacy and the part of the ins co that approves or declines Rx fills.

    It’s exhausting to deal with these folks
