do you ever have those days when you feel totally overwhelmed? today is one of those for me. long story short: i found out that my insurance never approved the claim for my hysterectomy surgery (that i had nearly 18 months ago) and the bills i’ve been painstakingly paying off each month were just for my dr. and not the hospital. i had been told that i was being billed and paying on bills from both the hospital and my dr. now, i am facing another $1000+ bill. just when i was about to finally have my surgery paid off.
i keep thinking that this shouldn’t be bothering me. i am so blessed in my life. i have a wonderful, sexy, hardworking husband who loves me and our boys to the moon and back; we have a home; the boys are healthy and smart. but i am feeling the pinch of being laid off and having much less money in the bank account. and, today, i feel like this new development is insurmountable.
however, i need to change my way of thinking. there is nothing i can do about this but wait for the new bill and set up payments. i’m still looking for a new job and i can concentrate on keeping my eyes and ears open for new opportunities. i can make due and make the best of things.
life has definitely handed me enough lemons for some lemonade. but, i think i’ll use them for a gin and tonic instead.
