The alarm went off at 5:00 a.m. and I didn't hear it. I jumped out of bed at 5:39 a.m., OK I got up slowly, but at least I got out of bed. Fed the cats, took a shower, gave the cats fresh water, got dressed, got my shoes on and out the door by 6:05 a.m. caught the bus at 6:30 a.m. Damn I'm tired! That was one WTF moment.
I called to see if I could be billed for my co-pay on a upcoming Doctors appt. Sure, for a $20 billing fee. All I wanted was an extra week till my next pay day to pay the co-pay. I've put this visit off for close to a month and a half as it is. I cancelled by appointment. I don't have a car and it takes me 2 hours to get to the Doctors office as it is. So when I have an appointment, it takes most of the day. I end up taking a day off from work. Monday is a holiday, that's why I set the appointment that day. I like my Doctor, so I was willing to take the time to get to her. But I'm not paying $20 just to put off paying a fee for a week not even for a month. What ever happened to the Hippocratic Oath, I know it says in there some where...First, do no harm. This fee is causing harm, and I can't believe I'm the only one who has ever asked for a little time to pay. Especially in this economic pain in the rump! Another WTF moment, don't know if I can handle another one after this.
I know the Group she belongs with has to make enough to pay the Dr.'s, nurses, tech etc. But like too many business's they have put money before people. I know there will be those who read this that will not be Christians, you are welcome, but Christianity is the standard by which I live. One of the Ten Commandments states that we are not to have other god's before God. To me when you put money before God...you've made money your god.
Now I have to try to find a Doctor closer to home and pray like crazy I like them. Wish me luck.
