Today was Homecoming at my son's school. The Varsity basketball team lost by two points. It was a great game though. A real cliff hanger. Now that basketball is over, life can get back to semi-normal around here.
I got a letter from my attorney - actually, a bill. They are in the process of obtaining all my medical records from 8/8/06 to now. Most providers require payment in advance before releasing records. I have 10 providers. The bill which came today was for almost $63.00 and that is only for two of the 10. The attorney says it is more prudent for their office to obtain my records, to be sure they are complete.
I know I will get this money back, but it irks me. All this time I have been paying my own co-pays for doctor visits, physical therapy, surgery, prescriptions, etc. It adds up. My PIP coverage was maxed over two years ago.
I guess "life" or "society" or maybe "the world" is just too big to evaluate people as individuals, on a case by case basis. I have zero fault in the accident and it seems like in cases like mine, the at fault party should have to cough up some money as the zero fault party goes through their treatment. As I said, it irks me.
Getting all this done, finally, is going to be a big relief for me. I won't get any better, but I will have closure. And I hesitate to say I won't get any better, because even though I've had excellent care, the true healer is God. I don't ask him to take the pain or the memories away. I ask Him to give me the grace to handle it better, believing His promise that all things work together for good.
Lastly, I added music to my blog. Personally I have never liked musical blogs. I have landed on far too many with my volume too high, and gotten quite the jolt. Truth be told, these are songs I love and can listen to over and over so I am doing it for me :).
