I don't believe in hell, but if I did I think it would be similar to fighting with insurance companies for eternity. Fighting with insurance companies isn't a new thing for me, I remember countless times being at work on my 15 minute break or my 30 minute lunch break sitting on hold only to hang up before anyone could help me because my break was over. I would get so aggravated that I used up my only opportunity to run to the restroom or eat dealing with what was often the insurance companies mistakes. I hated dealing with them then, but dealing with insurance companies while caring for a baby is a whole new ballgame!
I need not even explain the details to my fellow cysters and fibros, you already know. You too have been there countless times. I will mention that despite having this insurance for about 8 years they claimed at one point during my conversation with them that I never did in fact have insurance through them. Quite generous to pay the medical bills of a patient for 8 years that never had insurance, don't you think? Sigh.
The part that makes me the most angry is that for three days I started making calls when Kaylee went down for her first nap (at 8am) and was on the phone for her entire nap and continued to be on the phone all through her play time and finally through her second nap. I am now quite talented at changing diapers, doing laundry, and eating all while fighting for medication I need to survive. I also learned to entertain a baby with goofy faces, dancing wildly to the music playing while on hold, rolling balls, and dangling toys, once again, while talking to insurance reps. While being distracted on the phone little Kaylee ended up bumping her head on the coffee table. She wasn't hurt badly and although she cried hard it wasn't for long. I am pretty sure this is what put me over the edge. Dealing with incompetent people at the expense of your child is enough to piss the most mellow person off. So the last thing I learned was that screaming into a pillow helps relieve some anger and that my baby thought it was hilarious...so I did it a few more times for good measure.
