    Afternoon all. I hate Mondays too. In fact everyday of the week has been on my poop list lately.

    Weather: Hot with afternoon rains which make it miserably humid

    Sleep: Restless and up on and off - sucks

    Mood: Incredibly anxious today. Depressed. Combative

    Plans: Called PCP about referrals to out of network specialists, called insurance to see what kind of dent we're talking about financially and was told if it's authorized then it's just a normal copay which is $0. Still trying to get the boys on food assistance, but they got approved for medicaid - but they clearly had health insurance on the application. Idiots. So I've had to ask the ex to write a letter saying he is giving me support while they are here. Of course he doesn't understand WHY we need this help. Says they eat him out of house and home too. I tell him our combined income without child support and that they've plowed through over $200 in food in a little more than 2 weeks and he makes over $80k/yr. Big difference, right? Called insurance co social worker back to see if there is anything she can do to help push things through, like finding a tdoc who is actually taking new patients. 4 more days until I see pdoc where I intend to beg for something stronger for my anxiety and depression,

    Cookie! I so know how you feel! And if Gigi weren't here playing my shadow, I don't know what I would do.
