Hello welcome to my thread. Idk why I made this. I will probably post really dorky things in here so be warned. Everyone is welcome to post here, also if you want a compliment you can ask for one and I will give u one but if I don't know you it may be a randomly generated compliment. Um, what else... uncropped avis have rights. Oh and here are some emojis.
As well as compliments you may also ask for an emoji and I will give u one that I think represents you.
Lastly you can AMA about what being 6'8 is like but only 1x per person. Ok that's all I can think of sorry I'm new at this.
someone actually warned me when i started treatment to be really pro-active and vigilant about this kind of stuff, and i did try my best, but i guess this one slipped through the cracks. just sucks because i have worked on my credit for a couple years now and with one stupid bill i had no idea existed it got absolutely gutted.
the night i got diagnosed back in spring of 2019, i had to take an ambulance to the ER. in-network hospital, in-network doctors, all in-network etc. etc.. not a false alarm, they literally found a 10cm tumor in my chess. hit my out-of-pocket max in one night.
then a few months later they try to hit me with an extra $2000 bill because apparently the f/ucking ambulance was out-of-network.
the ambulance. as in, the ambulance i called 911 for and literally did not choose for my entirely valid medical need. something to do with the contract between the ambulance and the hospital idfk.
my insurance did end up covering that one in the end when i spoke to them about it. just the gall of it pisses me off.
after surgery, in johns hopkins. i am literally under the influence because they are giving me fentanyl for the pain. a nurse comes around with a clipboard, saying they can discharge me earlier if i agree to get some at-home nurse visit thing and sign the clipboard.
i ask three times if they're gonna charge me if i sign the clipboard. they say no each time. they tell me it's free since i already hit my out-of-pocket max. i sign the clipboard.
i should have f/ucking known. $300 bill. nursing service was out-of-network lmao.
honestly i just paid that one, wasn't worth fighting and the service itself was good so i probably would've paid for it if i'd even been given the option. just the fact that i was given such incorrect information and coerced into it while i was not in a sober state of mind.
the healthcare system is honestly the biggest scam and ambulances are always the #1 thing that really people up financially. like what else is a person who needs a vehicle to get to the hospital supposed to do?
it's insane the cost and hoops you have to jump through in this country to get medical treatment and i'm sorry you had to go through that
Reading your posts from February.. I think we "beat" the deeply unfair things that happen to us to the extent we manage to marginalize their impact on our lives, to not let them define us or force us to tear up the plans we had.
I think you really did beat up cancer Joe because your posts about this are oozing with inner strength and it sounds like you're doing a good job of getting past it all.
