Just When I Thought I Knew Where l Was Going

Here we go again ~ just when I thought I knew what the game plan was ~ now I am off in another direction. Of course I wouldn't have it any other way! I find sarcasm very therapeutic ~ it's better that some other things I could do right now @#%$%^$%&...Anyhoo ~ today ~ the insurance company delivered the lovely news that they have denied my request to have TC surgery done at TCI. But wait, they have a solution ~ I could go to a local neurosurgeon and they could do the honors. Well, why didn't I think of that??? But wait, it gets better, they don't want me to see one of the two local reputable neurosurgeons that I've already seen ~ they want me to go to someone else!

Seriously ~ are they kidding??? One step forward, two steps back ~ sounds like a square dance I did back in elementary school! Does anyone else think that the insurance company is actually wasting money? OK ~ they want me to see someone else, I can do that. Explain my entire medical history again ~ sure ~ that shouldn't be a problem ~ My brain my actually fall onto the floor during the process ~ but sure ~ why not ~ this sounds like fun. I wonder if they will let me bring a camera into the appointment ~ because after all is said and done, I don't want to miss the look on the doctors face when they tell me ~ "Are you kidding me??? No way will I operate on you! You should see a Chiari specialist!"

Seriously ~ how long is all of this going to take. A couple of months to even get an appointment with another neurosurgeon ~ a couple more to schedule the surgery ~ all of this is making me feel more dizzy ~ ow ~ my head hurts even more. I have been working so hard to do everything by the book to get my surgery authorized and paid for ~ shouldn't they give me a prize or something? Seriously ~ I am not asking for them to authorize a 7 day cruise to the Bahamas ~ I am pleading, no begging, for spinal surgery ~ just authorize it already!!!
