Lie like a rug

I am so pissed. My company just went through a weird reorganization and thus they had to get new health insurance policies, disability policies, etc. I of course am one of the persons that helped their rates to rise - mental health issues, migranes, on medications, etc. But DAMN! Because I went to a back doctor in 2007, and even though he said I was fine (according to him, but that's another story), the damn disability insurance company wants me to sign an amendment specifically for ME that says that I won't be covered if ANYTHING at all happens to my thoracic area. NFW! So, I told the president of my company there's no way I'm signing it, and now the fun begins.

Damn insurance companies. The moral is, lie like a rug. Or rather, don't tell when the end result was ok. Grumble grumble... Grrrr.... Hackles have risen and I am on the prowl (and unfortunately not in a good way).

That pisses the shit out of me! Don't you just hate that?! It seems that when it comes to health insurance, we're damned if we do, damned if we don't!

Man that stinks! I hope you stick to your guns and refuse to sign, if you can.

Read "In A Sunburned Country" - I didn't like it as much as I hoped to. Something about Bryson's writing makes me feel like I should be enjoying it more than I am. I think he tries too hard to be funny, but he's funny enough that he really doesn't need to try at all. "Songlines" by Bruce Chatwin is a good follow-up read if you're interested in traditional Australian culture.

I hate it. completely. And I just got the thing from my doctor and it doesn't say I'm 100% ok, which wasn't what I heard, so now more fun... There's no way I'm signing it anyway.

Yeah, Squirrel I know what you mean. I'll look into that other book, thanks.

That sucks.Don't even get me started on health care stupidity. I used to work in the business office of a huge hospital and I hate all insurance companies.

OK, my doctor friend read it and she said it doesn't say anything bad - basically doctor language saying I'm getting old - but I still asked for and got a note from the back doctor saying I've been treated and have no limitations. I faxed to the people and haven't heard any outcry, so we'll see!

DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING! My lawyer radar is screaming issues here, so be careful.
