Feeling Better

Saturday, January 18, 2020

I went back to work this week. I only have 5 hours and 45 minutes of sick leave left. :P I only have a cough now--thank God! My ears are not plugged anymore. :D

Because of the holiday on Monday, I have a 3 day weekend!!! :D

Today, I am going to my aunt's birthday party for lunch, and I am going to hang out with my best friend. We're going to discuss some stuff regarding her new house (we are going to be roommates). Excited!

So, I used to get Social Security disability, and although I don't get payments anymore, for some reason, my Medicare and Medicaid haven't been cut off yet. I have private insurance through my job now (Kaiser), but it's gotten complicated, because every time I go to Kaiser, they don't charge me, except for prescriptions. I got a letter a few years ago from Medicare saying that they will only cover prescriptions that Kaiser doesn't cover. So, since Flonase is not covered under Kaiser (or any over the counter medicines, for that matter), I've been getting it through Medicare. I have been getting birth control from Medicare too, because for some reason Kaiser keeps giving me a different birth control even though my doctor prescribes exactly Blisovi 24 Fe, but now I'm worried that I'll get a bill in the mail saying Kaiser should cover it. So, I think I might stop taking Blisovi 24 Fe, and go back to the other birth control that Kaiser covers. I'm sorry if this sounds confusing. I'm frustrated!

I get my next paycheck next Saturday, and I'm very excited to see how much take home pay I'll get each month this year!

I finally cancelled my free 3 month trial with Apple Music, because I prefer Spotify.

Yesterday, I was talking to one of my coworkers about my being gay, and I think 2 of my other coworkers may have heard me, and now I'm scared, because I don't know if they are accepting, or homophobic (one of them is a devout Christian). I'm afraid of discrimination. :(

I'm leaning toward just buying the 2020 Toyota Corolla instead of buying a used one, because I think function is more important than appearance (I don't like how the 2020 Toyota Corolla looks), and I don't like the idea of not knowing where a used car has been.

    Glad you're feeling better.
    How exciting to be talking about room mating with your best friend and moving out and moving on! Huge step!
    Overall I found that it's better to keep my personal life just that - personal. In my experience work and personal don't mix very well.

    I can understand your trepidation about whether or not your coworkers overheard you, but I am a Christian and I'm accepting of people who are gay. I'm conservative in my religious beliefs, but am quite liberal in regard to societal issues. There are definitely still people out there who are prejudiced, but as Christians are supposed to "Love thy neighbor as thyself," I would think your Christian coworker would be kind to you and accept you for who you are. That's just my take on it.
