First, I don't think I would want to do this as a full time job. They limit us to 28 hours a week, and the number of students are limited so we don't go over. I've been working with this... Continue reading

For the employer -- sure, but for the employee? I've never thought so, and even more now that I have done it. I am also sure it shouldn't be allowed. It's in the same realm as interning. While you are... Continue reading

Just loaded the latest build of the Windows 10 Mobile. I tried to use it a few months ago, and it sucked. I just can't live without One Note, Word, etc. on my phone. I decided to grab one of... Continue reading

I frequently joke that "My dog is better than CGMS" Well Dulce has mastered a new behavior which I call, "taking care of mom at the pool" It took a while for the situation to fit in my head but... Continue reading

I'll be honest, I liked Windows 8, though I did find it annoying. I just finished upgrading my almost last machine to Windows 10 -- I have an older machine downstairs in the guest room that last week claimed wouldn't... Continue reading

I love the size of most tablets, but I haven't found one I liked. iPads have been returned. Androids have been returned. I liked Kindles but I can't do work on them. I have been able to stand, but not... Continue reading

So after having lost my doctor's authorization for a 90 day script, the last medication arrived on the first day I needed to take them. Fun part is that they arrived about 20 minutes after the website says they were... Continue reading

I have all my medications except for a blood pressure medication. I may even be able to do without for a few days as my blood pressure has been dropping since I started losing some weight. Everything is sorted for... Continue reading

Ever since UHC and OptumRX decided that PillPack couldn't fill my prescriptions, its been a nightmare. I started moving everything on July 10, and I have PillPack medication through Thursday. Thankfully I throw nothing away and had a couple of... Continue reading

I got an email this morning saying that OptumRX hadn't received 90 scripts on two of the medications, and as usual, I was right, they were applying the scripts to the account that should be closed. I called the first... Continue reading

Yesterday's encounter was a clear case of bullying -- it wasn't another stupid person encounter. I am still ashamed that I didn't stand my ground, but collapsed under the pressure of other bullys. This is something I didn't see at... Continue reading

I like Windows 10 desktop, but then I've always like Windows 8. What happened to Windows 9? Anyway, the mobile version sucks and I had a bad time getting rid of it and getting my Nokia 1520 working again. It's... Continue reading

I'm not perfect by any means, but I am checking my blood sugar more, I'm waking up to a lower blood sugar (not always good for swimming) and I think I can continue the trend. Though it's been a rough... Continue reading

In fact, I'm about where I was a year ago. This last year has been stressful. I was doing pretty good with the job, until the end when they started laying people off. Then husband had to have surgery and... Continue reading

I got an email from my doctor's online service telling me I had email, so I checked and they had issued 90 day prescriptions for my medications. Then I went to the OptumRX website and I was being charged over... Continue reading

Apparently they have known this for a while, but have been trying to keep it from happening. UHC has their own mail order service, ships out every 90 days, so you know it won't be packaged up by day. They... Continue reading

I got up, went to my swim class (at 6:15), then came home, got dressed and did my morning errands. I was done and I get a push notification that the pump has been delivered and headed for the attended... Continue reading

I had a horrible nasty low last night. So bad, I couldn't wake up with Dulce tried to wake me -- or it was the lack of sleep. I finally work in a cold sweat at 68. I still didn't... Continue reading

Yes, I know it is no longer "certified" and to watch my blood sugars super carefully. So glad I made the choice to go with the regular insulin only and not go on long asking. Now I can sleep again,... Continue reading
