CIDP ... Rocky's blog

I know the CIDP is doing things to my head ... that is to say -- my emotional outlook.

I am, at the moment, taking care of my daughter's 4 animals while she's on vacation ... a vacation long overdue for her!

But my budget just isn't. It's been a year and a half since my car has been checked over. I need a car to get around as there is no one to take me. Doc appointments, etc. besides the usual grocery store and such. But it's all I can do to keep up the car insurance and emissions checks and yearly sticker.

I spend very little. Resale shops for my personal needs.

Medical budget is stretched to the limit. I buy supplemental insurance to go along with my Medicare because that allows me to choose my own docs and allows me to see them when I want/need to. I can also see the specialist neurologist in Houston, which I couldn't if I was in one of the HMO/PPO plans. So ... along with 3 insurances and meds for me, there are twice yearly visits by a Mobile Vet for my 23-yr-old Siamese who has stable kidney disease and GI problems and high blood pressure. She, too, as you might imagine, has meds to take.

And now has come another blow.
