Those of us with ADD or ADHD are probably fortunate if we have a touch of OCD also; it helps to counterbalance the impulsiveness and the difficulty motivating to start or to finish. But it has its drawbacks too. We tend to hang on too long (tho this could be part of ADD too?).
I got screwed by Blue Cross. They won’t pay for a covered procedure, lots of unreasonable reasons, and when I finally appealed, they turned it down because I filed the appeal too late – they hadn’t sent me the EOB they were supposed to, so I didn’t know what was going on. But I persisted and persisted in pursuing this, with righteous indignation, trying to right a wrong and on the principle of the thing (OCD).
I could still protest further, but even if they pay now, which is unlikely, I’ll probably be making 13 cents an hour for the effort I’ve put in. But it is sure hard to let it go.
So I’m venting to you, which is one of the ways to deal with anger- at least I’m doing something. Thank you for listening.
1. we need a nationalized medical service, like the civilized countries of the world.
2. I hope to post more on OCD.
3. blue cross — boo!!!! Would they be different if their mothers had been married?
4. quote of the day – If ignorance is bliss, why are there so many unhappy people around?
