Emotionally drained and desperately wanting comfort food

Wow..  Today has been a rather emotionally charged day. The boys were up extremely early and Lizze is definitely not having a good day.

It’s been one of those days.

I received a phone call from Gavin’s insurance company this morning.  It was from a case manager and she was going to be in charge of Gavin’s medical health (think an advocate for Gavin). Gavin’s got a case manager for his mental health as well.


Basically, I had to go through his entire story and explain as much as possible, about his health and what’s going on with him.

These aren’t easy things to talk about. 

It’s not like avoiding the subject makes it go away but having to go over everything again, felt like it was happening for the first time.  I remember where I was and what I was feeling when we learned about each and every one of his chronic health issues.

While this could be a positive thing, having to go through all that stuff again is emotionally devastating for me. 

I’m feeling pretty crappy right now. 

Everything feels so much more real to me right now. I haven’t gone through all of those memories in this manner for a little while. 

All I can do is hope that this will be a positive thing and this case manager will be able to help us, even though she works for the insurance company that has been a huge pain in the ass.

Right now, all I want to do is stress eat myself into oblivion. Unfortunately or fortunately, depending on your perspective, we’re broke at the moment and I can’t afford to stress eat.  🙁

Well. I don’t even know you but I hurt hearing about what you go through each day. We all have our struggles and for some people little stuff feels big. I’m sorry that your stuff is HUGE and takes so much from you and your family! Hugs for each of you and prayers for strength and a better tomorrow!

jjean3940 thanks. She’s actually very nice and seems to want to want to help. 🙂


as an insurance cm I kind of consider myself a “mole”.  or double agent.  I hope this cm feels the same way.  hang in there- totally understandable that you would be feeling that way- I feel that way whenever I take Nate for a dreaded developmental assessment

sounds just like PTSD. I am sorry you had to go thru that today. Hopefully something good will come of it.
