my one finger's worth

more one finger barely punctuated typing...one week after breaking both arms im stir crazy already...one arm not yet in the permanent cast but a temporary one till swelling goes away...and to be certain the set of the break is still in place...
i spent this past week at my sisters place upstate...keeping a chair warm while she worked and took care of me...while i waited on reinforcements to arrive.

how hard it is for someone as independent as me to rely on others for almost everything that i have normally taken for granted? it's harder than granite rock...it leaves one humble and gives renewed respect to others who deal with disabilities every day of their lives...so think twice about your own situation and what you would do if a similar thing should happen to you...none of us are bullet proof including me.  this could be you, or you, or yes even you...u cant see it but my one good finger is pointing...

i was so excited to know i would be able as a lower income blue collar worker to finally get a shot at affordable health insurance...do the reps actually think we dont want/deserve affordable care?

wth do they care or know about people like me? how dare they dismiss someone else's chance at a better life------ till you have walked a mile in my/our shoes.

my mom and other sis have arrived here so now im back home dealing with the daily rituals of life and feeling pretty damned lucky and loved. okay, that was tiring and hard to type so off i go with my pillow, straw, and one good finger.

  1. I sure hope you did already have healthcare (affordable or not) or this could be expensive as well as in credibly inconvenient. Thank heaven you have people who care about you.

    1. nope...my employer doesnt offer it...and as a self employed person before that i have tried every company...yes they sign up at an affordable price then within 6 months the premiums would double...and a higher deductible meant it never paid so i had given up...im trying to get obamacare and was hoping my state would help SC is so far to the right it hurts!

  3. Thinking about you and happy you have those reinforcements (I was worried about your being alone). The Health Care Act is going to stay. I'm pretty sure ..those teaparty idiots have shut down everything else, but they can't stop the health carre act. Nno matter what they think, it is the law.

    Rest, don't overdo. Let people wait on you. And yes, I hear you about 'it could happen to anyone' (I saw your one finger pointing.)
