Too Tired

I should share pictures  of TCPride, and talk about all the fun it was. I should finish the tax stuff. I should talk about the issues we’ve been having with Puppy. Maybe I should talk about how I feel about waiting to ttc again.

But I just feel tired. Tired and pissed off. My old job didn’t give me my severance pay. And it is denying a claim I’m submitting for today (which it shouldn’t do – I was supposed to retain insurance through the end of the month). I still haven’t filled out the COBRA paperwork. I’m not sure if I should $600/month is a lot, it’s not bad insurance, but we don’t have a lot of expenses, and I get to enroll in the new plan in September. I’m just pissed that in the course of a year I’ve worked at three different places. It looks hella bad. I’m not a bad worker, one of the places was a bad fit and was downsizing admin anyway (2nd), the other had the most passive-aggressive human being ever (3rd, most recent), and the third I left of my own accord for health insurance for my wife (1st). 

Right now working out is keeping me sane. I thought I’d be a lot happier having a new job, but I still want to escape into my books as soon as I get home. I’d love to just snap out of this funk, but it seems like it’s a place where I need to be for a bit. I don’t know.

    Sending you hugs! Not that you asked me, but I would be very careful about not having insurance!

    I didn’t realize you lived in the Twin Cities. I lived there for a few years and it’s still one of my favorite places!

    You’ve had so much on your plate. I’m glad you got to enjoy pride… I hope you can spend more time enjoying and less time being stressed very soon. One step at a time. Have you thought about looking into the individual plans through the Affordable Care Act? Maybe just buy a policy for a few months that will cover anything catastrophic? COBRA is really expensive, but you might be able to save some money through one of the health care exchanges.

    I second the ACA option for insurance! Is saved us $ for La and she has great coverage!

    • DeCaf says:

      Really? I can’t find anything I’d call “great” merely acceptable.

      • AndiePants says:

        Colorado has its own marketplace so that might impact things? Also, she makes shit money wise and gets a great subsidy so that might impact things too.

        • DeCaf says:

          Ah, Heather and I count as married so my income prices us out of a subsides. I know I should be grateful for what I make, but it’s not buckets of money at all.

    My daughter Noa lives in the Twin Cities. I can’t speak to the insurance but I do hope you can get some to cover the wait period.

    • DeCaf says:

      Wow, small world. It’s only two months, I’m signing up for the 2nd cheapest MNSure plan. It’s not real insurance but it’ll keep us from going bankrupt and losing the house if anything happens.

  6. I agree with the ACA suggestion, something to just get you through just in case. Hope you get out of your funk soon, it’s been a rough year.

    I know that in the past you could retroact COBRA, so you might have some time to decide. I’ve gone short periods of being uninsured in the past and luckily, it was no problem. Check the ACA options though – I think there are some good ones. Good luck! And what are you reading? I love escaping in my books too.

    • DeCaf says:

      I have 60 days, which is as long as how long I’d be without insurance for. I’m going with a cheapy ACA plan.
      Right now I’m reading Silkworm. I still like JK Rowling pretty well. It’s got the nice thing about not having any teenagers in love in it. 🙂
      I just finished Divergent. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t totally my thing. I may read the other books in the series eventually.
      I tend to love mysteries. If you have any suggestions, it’d be appreciated.

    I hope things get better soon.

    They are doing better. Not ideal, but better.
