I have good days and bad days (though every day includes at least 60+ minutes of rapid walking, I may start tracking my exercise here), though almost always tired days. Every medication I am on has some sedating properties, and when you add them all together, I'm one sleepy B. I think it's exacerbated by pms (which I don't get, I just get tired, possibly pre menstrual anemia)
I'm on a few mailing lists for people who suffer masto, and I have been seeing posts of people trying to unload one of the medications I am on. Of course they are being smart (and ethical!) by trying to find people either without insurance or whose insurance doesn't cover it. My husband and I nearly ran into that, but thankfully we have one of the branches of BCBS that covers it. His company was recently bought out by a larger company, and while our benefits will remain the same for the next year, I am concerned what next year will bring. A new plan? One that doesn't want me because I would be rolling over with a preexisting condition? I believe there is a law that forbids that as long as the person has remained insured, but that could change.
A few weeks ago I watched Sicko by Michael Moore, and was really horrified at how much more convoluted and fucked up the healthcare system was (and I already don't hold it in high regard since it took around 5+ years to get my diagnoses, during which I had doctors tell me, "there is no way you could be so sick and yet do so much"-in reference to my having a job, to ER nurses implying I was malingering) It just freaks me out and makes me sad to recognize how "lucky" I am, living in one of the greater medical cities in the world, with a husband whose company happens to have really good benefits. It puts a dent in our bills, which are already really steep.
