do you ever just passionately miss the first series of doctor who but not just because you miss Nine but because you miss the monsters and the simple story lines that were new and so interesting and the companions that didn’t need a magic back story to be special and weren’t just a new puzzle for the doctor to solve they were just ordinary people with ordinary lives and taught (especially the young viewers) that anyone can be a hero i just really miss season one okay
I don’t even want it for CF reasons. I want it in case a patient falls on me one day and busts my knee, or I slip on ice and break an elbow. Sheesh. The elimination period (time before I could even collect STD) for this coverage is 14 days, so even if I went on IVs I’d be in the clear before I cleared the period.
I’ve been at my job for just over a year and in that time:
-1 CNA screwed up her back after we found a patient on the floor and it took 4 people to get him up, her included. She had to have multiple injections because of nerve damage.
-another CNA tore his meniscus, has been awaiting surgery for months, and had to switch jobs essentially and be a medical records assistant because of the limitations from his injury.
-my boss had major back surgery and was out for 3 months.
-one of our PTs was out for about 5 months because he tore his meniscus carrying his daughter up the stairs and had surgery.
-Our ONLY COTA stepped off the curb wrong going to her car, broke 2 fingers and severely sprained her ankle. She’s been out for about 3 months, possibly with a torn tendon in her hand which could require surgery. Do you know how hard it is to repair a tendon in your finger?? You can’t be a therapist without your friggin hands.
And I’m denied coverage because of chronic lung shit. I’ve a clinic apt in October and I’ll enlist the help of the social worker to see if there are any options I can pursue next summer when open enrollment comes around.
The injury rate in people in the therapy realm is scary high. You can be as careful as possible (we’re all paranoid, truly) but you just never know.
So I’m guessing this is just a tiny taste of what uninsured people with pre-existing conditions go through trying to get health insurance. I made damn well sure that I didn’t go 2 seconds uninsured because once you’re “out of the system” (like getting off your parents insurance) it can be hell getting back in.
So I have cystic fibrosis and I also really want to go on birth control (for protection and for the estrogen), does anyone know if there’s any different side effects for people with cf who are on bc, and does it interfere with any other medications?
This really is something that you need to discuss with your Dr (OB or otherwise). Birth control can be tricky for the regular person in general. You’ll get much more accurate info from your Dr than second hand from one of us.
