I hate being put on hold- Bureaucratic Limbo
Today I made many phone calls to the pharmacy, to doctor’s offices, to insurance.
- One of my prescriptions will be taken care of tomorrow.
- A permanent TENS unit is still being worked out: the physiotherapist’s office and the medical provider are not on the same page yet, apparently.
- No word from the orthopedic clinic, or the surgeon’s nurses about the Novocaine injections. The insurance rep I talked to was outsourced… somewhere in Asia or Oceania, as it often is.
I hate putting on the dog and pony show for bureaucrats, more so when I must do it repeatedly and not everyone’s paying attention.
Pain is a leech on creativity.
I wish it was more of a forge, or a refiner’s fire. There is so much content I want to finish here on the blog.
For example, more of The Hero’s Journey series:
Transformers: The Movie
Redemption of the Four Kingdoms (fiction that Cimmorene and I are working on)
Superman is hard… I don’t have the good strength to write the explanations out, and I’m having trouble finding media from Superman: The Movie and Superman II, which I will be focusing on in one story. I’ve got posts already- you can find them all here (or see some of the Related Articles), but I don’t have enough yet to fill out all of the Monomyth stages. Equilibrium was easier by comparison– I had a wealth of clips on YouTube and a fansite. Then, I realized the whole script fell VERY neatly into all the Hero’s Journey stages!
Transformers: The Movie is even more difficult in some ways.
Redemption of the Four Kingdoms is forged in my personal experiences with abuse and other trauma, so… I hope you understand why those words of fiction (based on some reality) aren’t coming too easily. Maybe if I tell you I started it over five years ago, that would make more sense.
