I just haven't been able to read lately. Migraines are the worst. So I finally saw a neurologist and he was pretty flabbergasted by why nobody was taking this seriously. He took me off the Topamax and prescribed Aimovig, which is a monthly injection. And of course Tricare put a screeching halt on that, saying it's too expensive and demanding a pre-auth. A pre-authorization is basically the doctor making a case for why I need it, as if the doctor prescribing it isn't enough. Now I'm waiting for my damn insurance to say it's okay for me to have this lifesaving medicine so I can function like a human being again. If anyone ever says the military have good benefits, tell them to bite you. Our insurance is only good if you have a cold or a sinus infection. When there is something really wrong, they lose their shit.

 

Anyway, I should be listening to my audiobook of Spinning Silver but I don't even have the motivation to start it. I really want to read a lot of these nonfiction books I got. I'm in a slump.
