Checking off the Psych Requirements

Writing here is turning out to be harder than I thought, it seems I’m just in go go go mode constantly and by the time I wind down the last thing I want to do is sit here and blog about everything I just finished doing. However, it is important to me to share my journey with anyone that wants to read about it, and so, here I am. So I had my appointment with [...]

Blood Sugars from 7/15-7/29

By |2012-09-13T09:20:11-04:00July 30th, 2010|My Story|0 Comments

A couple members of my Family were asking about my blood sugars so I figured I would share the actual numbers that I’ve been hitting the last two weeks to give them an idea where I stand. This will seem pretty boring to anyone that’s not extremely interested in diabetes and blood sugars, so for that I apologize! Date Time Blood Sugar 70/30 R 15-Jul 1:05 AM 261 60U 12U 15-Jul 4:21 AM 156   [...]

Some days I look at what I have done in the last few months, what I have achieved in such a short time frame, and [...]

Trying to be Prepared for Changes

I don’t think that anyone that is not severely overweight can really understand the pain that we go through. I don’t think they can understand the constant insecurity, the constant stress and worry about what other people are thinking, the fear of how we are looked at, the embarrassment of being pointed at as you are walking down the street and having kids laugh at you. Teenagers are the best, you know that group of [...]

Something Other than Waiting!

Alright, so, I heard back from the WLS coordinator at SWMC and we found out that for sure the insurance covers 85{6e74c841b8f362d8aea590534016dc569fd3035eeb9e530df8846b42682c6656} and not 100{6e74c841b8f362d8aea590534016dc569fd3035eeb9e530df8846b42682c6656} so from here on forward this is what we know for sure. Insurance will cover NOTHING pre-operative. Insurance will cover surgery, up to $25,000 Lifetime Maximum so long as all three, Surgeon, Anesthesiologist and Facility are all in network. Insurance will pay 85{6e74c841b8f362d8aea590534016dc569fd3035eeb9e530df8846b42682c6656} of contracted rate, after I’ve met my [...]
