Virgin Voter

I voted at the polls for the first time in my adult life. Prior to this I had always done an absentee ballot. D was shocked because he had always voted at the polls... I'm temped to contact my fil and tease him about who I voted for - but I can only do that if my candidate actually wins. Otherwise it's going to be a long phone call. Here's hoping the good guys win.

In other news did I mention that my employers insurance is being benevolent and willing to pay for $500 for infertility testing/diagnostics. Gee uhmm thanks. If you imagine me scratching my head going yeah that'll cover maybe 3 u/s. I know it's a step forward... and I know I'll probably have to continue to email the person in charge of coming up with our benefits - which I will do... but it's frustrating. Why can't someone just mandate that infertility be covered. It would be too simple apparently.

So in the meantime I will leave you with a quote... because I think that's what most of us have done... we may have hit the end of our rope, but we're still hanging on.

"When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on."
– Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Yes - infertility should be covered but I am sure the policies are written by men who have no idea - sorry, just pissed about insurance in general.

Glad to here you voted - I, too, hope the "good" guys win. If not we are in trouble, more trouble.

Nothing gets me more upset than the lack of insurance coverage. As if there isn't enough salt in this wound? Now you need to bring in financial aspects as well? $500 is ridiculous. Do they have any idea what things cost?

Thank you so much for your comment on my blog about comparative pain. I'm so curious--you spoke about the one person who you thought would understand. How did you get out of playing the comparative game? Are you still close or is the topic of IF off the table?
