I had my caseworker for the insurance company handling what I get with my Medicaid Waiver come to the house unannounced after not keeping the appointment we had Friday. Okay, a minor inconvenience.
I had never met her because she is replacing the previous caseworker. There is a knock at the door. I’m still in my bedroom. The nurse comes in saying she is allergic to the dogs. I ask who is she. The nurse is so busy trying to get the dog she doesn’t answer me. So I’m getting annoyed.
She gets the dog into her cage and lets the woman in. I was already dressed. Then the caseworker comes in and just stands there looking at me smiling. After the awkward silence I finally say, “Who are you?!” Then she finally introduced herself.
Then another silence. My nurse finally asked what she needs from me. Said it was just the routine 90-day visit. Still didn’t answer the question. She asked a few questions. I had the nurse explain to her that if I had my tobii computer I would be able to talk to her better if she would be staying long. Then she finally got to the point and asked the questions one would expect.
The whole situation was a little odd and irritating. Am I overreacting here?
I was considering telling her that I’ve had anxiety since the Senate announced the details of their health care bill. I figured it wouldn’t do any good though. They may actually have said he’s having anxiety at home, let’s put him in a nursing home. I say that half joking.
I did make sure I told her all of the things I do, getting out and the like. I should have mentioned my writing.
It’s a shame we have to justify our living in the community. Or at least feel like we have to.
Trumpcare should not be what is a victory for the Republicans or the Democrats. This bill should not be built behind closed doors. They should look at it for what is good for the country. Please pray that sane heads and hearts will prevail. Give us a health bill that is not of special interests, or parties, but of the people, by the people, and for the people.
It was once said that the moral test of government is how that government treats those who are in the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the elderly; and those who are in the shadows of life, the sick, the needy and the handicapped. ~ Hubert H. Humphrey
