On top of being manic, I'm trying to eat and it keeps coming back up. I just can't seem to swallow my food today. I see my psychiatrist tomorrow and am worried he will increase my Depakote. Each time he dose that I have a real bad depressive reaction. My rheumatogist put me on a steroid today because of a Lupus flare up. That also has me concerned because it can really mess with your moods and cause weight gain. I'm already fighting a battle not to gain any weight with my new antidepressant.
I got bad news a few weeks ago the my Medicare Advantage plan that I'm on is be cancelled as of January 1, 2011. I had a meeting with someone from Humma to see what type of supplements they had for Medicare. The plan that was a reasonably priced had NONE of my current doctors on it. I also got a list from the Secure Horizons and again none of my doctor are on it. The only plan that is available that I can keep my current doctors is Humma "Golden Plan". It a golden plan for a reason, you have to have a lot of gold to afford it. It is going to cost me $70.00 more a month. That might sound like a lot, but when you are on a fixed income it's a ton. I'm not comfortable changing all my doctors, so I might have to suck it up a go with that plan anyway. I really don't know what I'm going to have to cut from my budget. What a pain.
I really need to get some sleep tonight. I have notice that a lot of the blogger I follow haven't been posting in the last couple of day. I hope everything is going OK and it is just that they have been too busy to blog. I'm going to try some clear liquids and see if that will stay down. Hot tea sounds good. Maybe I'll curl up with a hot cup of tea.
