I think I really need to start going to bed at a decent hour. Stupid night owl genes.

I have a feeling if I don't get another job before next year I'm going to end up dumped onto ACA. Benefits is supposed to be "part" of my salary but my benefits aren't that awesome, and I got notification that my plan is ending next year and my employer is supposed to be working with them on a new plan... I'm just predicting we'll end up with ACA. And probably will only find out like... at Christmastime. I don't know how I feel about that yet. I'm just hoping for something better to come along and not have to worry about it really. Something that includes dental would be awesome!

I do know there's some good stuff coming from it. I don't believe it's perfect. But I also do not believe health care should be a privilege.




I've been thinking for a few weeks that I need to hit up my friend and go have lunch with him or something. But I'm busy and let stuff get in the way. I finally just sent him a message trying to see if we can do lunch some day, and it really just hit me how much I miss him. I miss working with him and seeing him every day. It blows.
UGH I miss so many of them. Like it hurts physically.

On a related topic my job at the station is posted AGAIN. This means they have gone through three people (that I know of) since I left. Wow guys. Maybe there's a reason people keep quitting. You think? Maybe you should have just paid me more and kept me. You think??

https://www.healthcare.gov/how-can-i...lth-insurance/

says to use the keiser family foundation calculator. found here

http://kff.org/interactive/subsidy-calculator/


according to this , I will have to pay 14,000 or so a year in premiums with something like 2000 in deductables.

right now i pay 2500.00 a year thru my employer with the word around the yard is that will be doubling in the new year. while 5000 is cheaper than 14,000 . i cant afford either. It also point out the tax this year will be 95.00 and will increase to 695 by 2014. per person.


and no expanded medicaid here either.

i really am stumped as what would be the best to do and am trying to educate myself as much as possible.

My vent? My mental health SUCKS. I'm swinging between 'so depressed I can't get out of bed' and only reading/browsing the web is keeping me distracted, to 'so depressed I'm contemplating hurting myself and/or other things.'

It's not like it was two years ago, I actually realize I can be happy and can remember the times that I was happy and that keeps me from going "well, I'm just going to slit my wrists now" and instead I go out for a walk or take something to make me sleep. But realistically, how much longer can I stand meds not working!? I've got a docs appointment and I'm going to bring up a couple things, but there is no easy or quick fix. And it seems like everything I try stops working after 3 months.




Oh, and if someone I'm not going to name wants to get all sanctimonious on me and tell me life is worth living, seriously, go **** yourself. I have you on ignore. Do us all a favor and put me on ignore, too.

The issue is not me thinking that obamacare doesn't have problems/people shouldn't disagree with it.

THE ISSUE IS THAT, regardless of your problems with it, it is NOT the worst thing to ever happen to this country (which is something I keep seeing ALL OVER FACEBOOK and my school)
Sorry.
It's messing with a few of my payments too still not gonna say it's worse than the hoards of true tragedies this country has faced.

that's the point.

I sadly have no life brightening words of advice that will lift your spirits and remind you of the joys of skipping through fields of dandelions naked with flowers in your hair because other people have it worse (so of course, you can't be depressed) and of course something I say (because I know everything about your life and brain) will help you see the light and joy in the world and lift you out of your depression!

Did the same thing with my friend with the flu last week. A few inspirational quotes and told her about starving kids in africa who have it worse and then BOOM! CURED!

jokes aside, that blows and I hope it gets better soon.
(internet hugs)

Keeping me on hold won't make me any nicer when you finally pick up you douchecanoes.

I've been there, and I'm sorry that's where you are. I hope your doctor finds something that works, and that you feel better soon. I know it sucks to go through trial and error with meds. Super redhead hugs. <3

((hugs))

i wish i could say or do something to make it all better, but i can't and that makes me sad.




I'm pretty low right now. Some stuff happened and I'm trying to deal with it. I hurt and it's no one's fault, it's the fault of a situation i entered into willingly knowing the risks. It's my own fault really, but not really, if that makes sense. It's not even that bad, i'm not losing anyone, it's just changing.

I'm at a point where my good days are more than my bad, but my bad days feel pretty bad and I know because of today that they're going to increase in number most likely... There's only so much I can do and tell myself to make myself not go there. I've decided I'm going to start looking for a therapist again. I want to do something and I'm over feeling like seeking out help is showing weakness.
