Okay, so I decided to come out and say what’s been upsetting me. Most here have known that I’ve been up for a new wheelchair for so long & I’m fighting tooth and damn nail to get one, but for those new here, I’ll give a Crash Course in wheelchair lifespans. A electric chair has a cycle of five years, at three years, it needs repairs, going downhill from there. Insurance will cover the cost for a newer model, like a car, BUT a doctor needs to write a script.
Before I continue, let me state that if any family members see this post on Facebook and get offended, I really don’t care, this blog is my way of venting. I have Medicare, which will cover the new chair but my card is missing, so my power of att. is suppose to deal with people who don’t wanna deal with me right? Wrong! She either forgets to call to get stuff done or sticks it in my nephew (her son) to do. Well, last week, after talking to my chair repair guy, who’s a family friend, she did the pass the buck shyt.
We call, I got on the phone and told the person my soc and she was like, “I can’t understand what you say!”, talking to me like I’m three years old. I spoke clear as day so wtf bitch?! She wouldn’t even talk to my nephew.
Back to Mike, my repair guy. Before the above call from hell, he was pissed at how my family’s treating this and I told him everything. “Hard to believe you bend over backwards fer them, paying most everything here and you can’t get help. WTF would happen if your chair dumps and their gone or whatever?” (his words). He is right and has a right to be mad! This chair was new in 2009, it is now 2017!
Until a new chair gets ordered and gets here, I need to save at least $200.00 monthly to keep this thing going.
What are your feelings on this?
