6.28.17 around 10.10am

KJ was over and it was a great home visit! I usually create a notepad of things I could use help with but work my memory trying to remember it all without referring to it! This is part of always trying to work my brain! Oh and I do well with this too! I had to call my care manager at CCA about some dental work that was denied! I don't have her email so I had to call, now I gutta WAIT for a return call! KJ thinks she's got it, she'll mail it to me then I'll send a mail to my care manager and have nothing else I can do about this matter until she responds :)!

6.28.17 nearing 8.30am

6.17.17 after 7.30

I was reading a fb friend's page and they were talking about "the ride" so I had to chime in my opinions! This guy had to use it to get to his appts and had said how unreliable it is! I asked what he has for ins. He is a vet and on vets insurance but he's gonna get Mass health so I told him they would pay for trans to and from docs appts! My experience though it's not any more reliable but it will be an option for him! Now to make a late dinna.

I've been to the scooper bowl in Boston today. That was so much fun, all the ice cream I can eat and hics paid :)! I've got some issues getting a med for these sharp rib pains! They can't call the script in to Wg's cause it's a narcotic, it's ready at granite medical but I'd have to book rides here to get it! All I've got to ease my pain from busted ribs is Motrin and Tylenol! I'm hoping I can control my brain to ease it now :(! Now I gutta make something to eat.
