I can't read the thing you directed me to, because it requires me to download something, but that's ok. I know there are lots of people with bigger problems than me. The problem that is the worst is the phone lines, but we have been troubleshooting it for days now, and now line 2 is having static. But we can't prove to the phone company that it's the line outside, at least not yet, so we keep trying.
I just felt like I had to vent about it and this was the safest place. Because all of this is happening along with my attempting to deal with all the problems my elderly parents are having. So it's just gotten more and more overwhelming by the minute.
Add to that, the fact that now Walgreens sent them a letter saying they will no longer accept mom and dad's insurance because it's Express Scripts, and the social worker scolding me today because my 83 yr old mom is still caring for dad by herself for the most part.
Shit! don't know what the social worker thinks I can do, I've tried about everything there is. I can't make mom change her mind about trying to keep dad at home. And if him constantly winding up on the floor and the ambulance or/police keep coming to get him up isn't enough to convince her, I don't know what is.
Thanks for the reality check, Ashton. Like I said, I was just desperate to vent. or maybe I was depressed enough to vent. One or the other.
