Dealing With Buracracy

Oh my gosh.  Hands shaking, I grab them in a vain attempt to stop or at least hide it.  While obvious that I’m  wringing my hands, I can’t stop.  I shiver all over, as if I’m  freezing, and I am in fact cold.  No one else is cold, in fact the temperature  is in the upper 80’s, and I can’t stop shivering.  I blame it on the air conditioning  and the fan.  An arm over my shoulders, while comforting, does not warm me.  Decisions have to be made, actions taken.  I am frustrated by excuses and apologies.  I am frustrated by lies that I am at fault.  I missed four calls, but there is no record in an age when every call leaves its mark.  Again apologies and efforts to blame others.  My voice tense with politeness as I fulfill yet another repeated request.  Finally, all is in order, I hope.   I say a terse thank you and disconnect  the call.  It takes time, but as the stress and anxiety leaves my  body, I slowly warm.  My hands are the last part of my body to again feel normal.

    1. After two months of trying to get a medication, my insurance timed out, do to changing work situation. Finally got insurance, but have to start all over again with the copay, and the medication probably will not be covered. Weeks of phone calls. I lost my patience. It was so unnecessary.

      1. OMG! I so sympathize. I let me son have an earring and he didn’t care for it correctly so it got stuck in his ear. Took about 3 months on the phone with insurance every day until we found someone to treat him.
