“When you walk through a storm, hold your head up high…”

After I finished writing my previous blog post, I went to bed. I took off my socks, took off the foot dressing… and discovered another opening in the skin.

Oh joy, oh bliss, oh crepes suzette.

I’m going to make an emergency appointment with my podiatrist. Although none of this has been serious yet, the situation is just begging for another ulcer.

Did I mention that my insurance doesn’t cover the visits to the podiatrist?

OK, I’m griping. Focus on the positive: I can afford this visit (grumble!), I have good medical care, I caught the problem in time.

161 books. 161 books. 161 books. It’s my mantra for today.

    ummm I am surprised that your insurance doesn’t. Is there a care manager you could appeal that to, being diabetic?

      Both my podiatrist and my endocrinologist were forced to drop my insurance carrier; my employer offers no other carrier that they take. I am not without other resources (FSA and spending limits and the like), but it’s annoying.

        right. but sometimes people can arrange a single case agreement… since you’ve been seeing them a while, and under special circumstances, you can put a little pressure on the company. Seriously, be pushy. its not your fault they dropped out of the insurance and you shouldnt be penalized.
