a) I have only been working with the nutritionist and trainer for
b) because i am not morbidly obese because i've been working with the nutritionist and trainer for 3 months and 'am doing so well.'
What the HELL?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
I felt like i was losing my mind in the that conversation.
Told the doctor from the insurance company who called me that their policy is insane and that it's CRIMINAL to require me to participate in a programme for an entire year that they don't cover.
I asked if anyone who had just made this decision that will impact MY life has ever been diagnosed as morbidly obese..... she said no, but i don't think that has any bearing.... i said of course it does because
a) none of you can truly empathise with my situation
b) this is fat prejudice at its very worst!
arghhhhhhhh...... my boss is still going to make the call, but i somehow doubt they're going to change their minds.
but that's ok..... since i can't afford to spend nearly $500 a month for a year to only be told no, you've lost way too much weight to need this surgery, then maybe i'll just walk away from it all, pack on a hundred pounds instead of losing it, develop diabetes, heart disease or blood pressure (or how about all three) and then see if they'll approve me because i'm finally sick enough in their books.
i just want to stab someone at that insurance company in the eye with my car key right about now.
