ARGH! NO MORE MEDICARE! A worst nightmare loomed large notification courtesy Montgomery County Assistance Office caseworker implied medical coverage axed I felt hammered, nailed, shingled out... livid with rage frenzied, harried, jarred... railing away fit tubby tied to train tracks ready to kill myself! Bajillion dollars for medications yikes - anxiety/panic attacks slated to return with vengeance, no way to pay funeral/ cremation services unable to calm down a bottle of tranquilizers... and/or sharp pointed objects appeared very tempting questions needed answering ASAP! Telephone numbers yielded voice menu dialed Consumer Service Center for Health Coverage at long last - thank dog, a real person! Whew - informed of short checklist checking account transactions backdated to June 2019 until most recent activity slight sigh of wry tears relief grace period until August 2019 accessed Citizens account online of course Login fraught with problematic issues Yow! Chose new password finally accessed anemic measly anorexic balance scrolled mouse pointer highlighted/copied designated date pasted said information into Word document ah...prints esse finally blessed me folded half dozen plus pages affixed three postage stamps out apartment door slipped material into onsight mailbox. Breathed sigh of relief agitation subsided within core rage against human machine (me) penuriousness smarted, vetted, yipped... analogous to pet peeve emotionally exhausted and spent penniless poet plopped into bed instant sleep refreshed highly cooled figurative heels subsequently resumed hashtagging black and decker tooled mindset concomitant with grievous bitterness decried flagrantly mucking potential squandered so many prime vocational opportunities severely compromised thank you loathsome debilitating panic attacks years gone by voluntarily enrolled institutions, albeit of higher learning hopscotched from one college/ university after another work historyrecord scattershot unable to sustain employment intermittent jobs between prolonged gaps, deemed expendable, replaceable, unmarketable... great boost to self esteem qualified to receive Social Security disability predicated on serious mental health issues to recapitulate incapacitated presumably congenital aberration other than above internal melee..., I feel great?
