I'm definitely going to give them a piece of my mind. Not only am I getting a refund on my shipping that package is insured. I'm going to do my best to make them pay.

Rant: Ugh. Wasted a lot of time and money on some specialists in good old grand NYC for them to say "We can not come to a conclusive diagnosis. The nodule is too small to be causing that much pain, please see *some expensive specialists in NY, that's a rheumatologist.*" We've all ready went to one half a year ago. We've exhausted our options within the area. They're trying to say he has Fibromyalgia. The only way of knowing is ruling out everything else. His Massage Therapist suggested we try some things people with it do to help out, like diet and water exercises. So now I gotta find a gym with a heated pool close by that we can go to when it's not busy. His parents are not sure what else to do. There's this place in Philadelphia we're recommended to try. But his Dad is like no, because we had no success at the last place this guy suggested us to go to.
I have to get up a half hour earlier for the next 2 days and I've barely been able to get up the past two mornings to take care of some dogs. I love the dogs, they're funny, I just hate getting up early.
My camera's batteries no longer work. They only hold the charge for a few pictures then die. I don't want to buy new ones because I want a new camera.
It's been raining all week.
My teeth hurt so bad. :( I can' afford the dentist until at least January.

On the side note, for most my reptiles I use cheap shelf liner and throw it away once it gets too messy. Though my Amevias I use the Jungle Mix because they love to dig and fling dirt everywhere. -__- Shelf liner is a cheap option though.

Rant......Being sick for eight years...but symptoms controlled with medication so I could have some quality of life.....
But now the new insurance will not pay for my life saving medication and are making me try other medication that cause symptoms to be worse....soon to be bed bound again and that sucks........unless we can find one that works....
One last appeal with the insurance company and what make it even worse is that they told me that my medications are on the formulary before I bought the insurance and it is even listed on their web-site or I would have never got that insurance to start with...I had other choices...they sure want the monthly premium and take that out of my account every month and I can't even cancel it for a year.....I may be dead by then if we don't find something that works........thanks lying thiefing big national chain insurance company.............

Aww OFL! I am having medical issues right now and am trying to get temp. insurance. till then I have to pay out of pocket. I know of family friends who are going through a really difficult time too. The mom has schizophrenia and refused to leave the house so the house could sell after the dad got laid off and flew across the country for a new job cus they didn't have insurance for her meds. the Daughter was paying hers and their bills for a long time and they finally hospitalized the mom, forced her on meds so she could be sane again, and found out she had ovarian cancer and so they flew to be with dad and start chemo and recently dad got laid off again so they have no insurance anymore to pay for meds or chemo :( Times sooooo suck. hugs!

I hope things work out for you, too, it must be really hard to have to deal with insurance when you really depend on their services. :( They're such terrible little blood-suckers.

As for my rant, I just had to listen to the lady in the next office get a call that her bird died. To which she replied "Omg what? I think I forgot to feed it?" I yelled across to her that she needed to be a responsible adult and do research before she purchased her pets--I also said that she had better not get another one. She was charged with animal cruelty earlier in the year because her himalayan cat got out in the heat of summer, and she didn't bother to look for it. It ended up matted and sick in a shelter, and the microchip led straight to her. :/ Some people just aren't responsible enough to own pets.

Anti-rant #1: I'm headed out of town to the family beach house for the next few days--you buys better keep tabs on Diseases and Emergencies while I'm gone!

Anti-rant #2: Bird killer lady is getting yelled at severely. :> She's the HR person so she normally gets the complaints, but this one sounds loud and belligerent! Hopefully he'll upset her and ruin her day. The bird's death surely didn't.

Left my gym clothes at my friends house and lunch and when i got back to school i had p.e . DAMM ! I had to wear the spare stinky gym clothes the p.e teacher had in his locker. I also nearly got a detention and i got a late mark even though i was stood in the line waiting to go into the gym changing room. I just didnt see all the boys go in . I was stood talking to someone when i relised they had gone in. I have had a terrible day. :(

Anti rant : The boys that were bullying me have finnaly stopped! I went to a counseler and she helped me out.

Junior high is turning out to be the worst years of my life. :(

Rant/Anti Rant!

I am angry @ my website, but I am listening to Country music, so now I'm happy. Egh, an alright song on right now, love the Acoustic Guitar in it. It is "The House That Built Me" by Miranda Lambert.

I have a flat tire and my parents aren't going to help me out. This is the 3rd time it's gone flat so I need to get new ones but they just keep telling me "just air it up some more!" Yeah, then have a blow out and die on my way home? No thanks.
Today has just not been my day.

OFL, isn't that up to your doctor. Not the insurance company? =/ I'd rather pay out of pocket for an expensive medication than take something that is making me more sick. :( Also if you call around you could probably find assistance to help with this.
I really have no room to talk alls I have is trouble with my insurance company and try to not use it. Luckily everything I need long term my dad takes and can get free from being in the Military. :D That way it's free.
On that note. I was up until 4 am last night. Everytime I finally got to the point of exhaustion and could ignore my teeth aching, the dog would step on me. Ugh. I'm never going to let my dog sleep in bed. Such a bad habit. So I got up at 6 am to get ready for work and someone keeps peeing in the house and I had to clean that up was almost late. Got to work to realize nothing for me to do until 11. So I left and went to my house and fell asleep. Asked my bf to wake me up at 10, he woke me up at 11. (When I was supposed to be at work.) I drove all around the city trying to find this discounted dental clinic. Finally did, but they were closed. -_- Went to the farm I'm helping out at and she had nothing for me to do. :c No biggie, but I like helping out. XD
Anti-rant: It's going to be nice, so Friday I should get to ride again. I got to yesterday bareback and it was great. Learned a lot of balance that way. :) The lady who is letting me come over is super nice.

Nocho: That sucks. :( There's this place near by that sells used tires dirt cheap. They're used, but usually are good for a year. Car tires are not too expensive honestly. Try calling around and finding a good deal. :)
