As of November 1, although I didn't find out until later, I have been covered by Medicaid/Molina +. It took a while to get the pharmacy part figured out, but I now can get most of my meds for a small co-pay.
On December 31, I received my first check. It isn't much but added to my pay from teaching preschool it helps a lot. Today I received the first of my back-paychecks. I need to figure out if that is after my attorney fees have been paid or if I still owe them. If I don't have to pay the attorney that money will be a huge help.
I actually have a few posts saved as drafts that I haven't finished. I was trying to decide whether to post them now, by working them in somehow, or continue to save them for another day. I think I will save them but I promise that I will post them eventually. I still need to finish the story of my mission as well. I am just going to post a few random things for now.
This morning I read an article in the Deseret News, a Salt Lake City newspaper, about a man who has suffered with depression and anxiety. He is a former University of Utah basketball player named Craig Rydalch. He had attempted to commit suicide but was saved by a miracle as he called it. He is trying to spread a message of hope by sharing his story. He has said, “If I can help one person from following through with what I almost did, then it will make a difference.” Here is the link to the story: http://www.deseretnews.com/article/865620612/Former-Utah-basketball-player-spreads-hope-from-his-battle-with-depression-anxiety.html.
This is kind of a short post because I can't think of anything else to write. Anyway, I have been thinking that I need to share more of the things that have helped me through the tough times. In order to do that I will be starting to share more about my beliefs and my testimony of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and of my Savior, Jesus Christ. I just wanted to share that in case anybody doesn't want to hear about it. However it is a part of who I am and in order to more completely understand me I have to share. So, with that said, I will probably finish telling about my mission and how it played a large part in where I am today.
Until next time!
