aj just threw up on my prada purse. he is now dead to me. 🙂


i changed the address on my driver’s license today. i’m sure you all know how this story ends.

i thought they could use my previous picture, but they wanted to take a new one. fine.

the employee counted to 3. i smiled. after 3, i stopped smiling. *then* the flash went off. right in the middle me saying “oh man” because i realized what had happened.

yeah, so i look like i’m in pain in this picture. and this is the one i will have to show people for the next four years. sigh.

i spoke too soon

now our new insurance company is trying to back track and tell me that remicade is counted as a self-injectible medicine and i would still have to pay 10 percent of the cost of the medicine *plus* a $50 copay for each visit. except it’s not self-injectible. that’s such crap. i am a very angry arthritic person now.

making the switch

i have decided to change my arthritis meds from enbrel, a self-injection, to remicade, an infusion that will be done at my doctor’s office. the main reason is our new insurance. under it, i would have to pay 10 percent of the cost of enbrel. the medicine costs about $1,500, so i’d have to pay $150, a big jump from the $60 copay i have now. remicade is considered a diagnostic service and counts toward my deductible with no copay required. so, instead of close to $2,000 a year i’d pay only $500.

i also think my enbrel may not be working as well for me anymore. i’ve been in a lot of pain lately, and i’ve had a lot of *really* bad swelling. it sucks. you can’t even see my kneecaps anymore. blah.

so wish me luck. i’m kind of nervous about this, but i think it’ll be good.

i’ve been surprised at how many keyword searches i’ve been getting lately. it’s making me feel better. i was bummed that other people were having keyword searches turn up and i wasn’t.

jeff francoeur wedding
why do people keep finding my site by searching for this? i don’t even remember really mentioning him on my blog.

van dolson
it must have been a relative who searched for this. it’s not a very common name, and no one *ever* gets the space or spelling right.

until next week…
