Thanks for your kind words, everyone! I really appreciate everything!
Things are stabilizing, as Remi said. In short, I was having a terrible time getting anything authorized, and have been waiting longer than I should have for anything. I've been trying not to abuse meds by keeping myself distracted with work or other things that require focus.
I finally had a breakthrough when an imagine center told me my claim was being denied because my policy was canceled because I hadn't been paying my premium. Armed with bank statements that definately prove otherwise, I called customer service.
Apparently, all my hangups with providers have been a result of either an automated billing system error or something similar. They were taking my money (of course that part wasn't having problems), but not registering that I had paid. Now I'm back on track for surgery and pre-surgical care, as well as my previous claims are being properly processed. I'm lucky that office actually told me what was going wrong or I might still be dealing with this.
Anyway, everyone's patience and support is greatly appreciated.
I've seen interest in both; would you guys prefer a continuation or reboot?
