Hello everyone, and happy Saturday.
I know it has been a couple minutes since I have posted an actual blog post on here. So I figured I’d come back and write about something I’ve been experiencing lately.
What can you do when life gets hard? That is a question I’ve been asking myself lately. Since I have hurt my back in November, I haven’t been able to work. I’ve been seeing a chiropractor, and my short-term disability insurance decided his medical documentation wasn’t good enough, so they denied my claim, about a month and a half after I asked for an extension on my original claim.
Currently I am waiting on the appeal to go through and hopefully they reconsider. However, because they haven’t been paying me short-term disability, I’ve maxed out all of my credit cards paying bills to stay afloat. I’m also on the verge of losing my insurance, because I get it through work, and haven’t been working for them to pull money out of my check.
The last week has been different than the rest. I went a saw a physician for my back. She took x-rays, and found some deformation in my lower back. I am starting physical therapy on Monday. I have also started anti-depressants again. The last time I took them I was in high school. This is all for the better.
So, here’s my advice if you yourself are going through something hard in life. Hang in there. Don’t give up, keep on going. Talk to your friends and family. They love you and will help you as much as you can. If you have issues with being able to pay electric and heat, see if you can get some energy assistance. It never hurts to apply.
Life can be mean to us sometimes. Don’t let it get you down. Just hang in there. It does get better.
