I know there are other people's vents here that I need to acknowledge and reply too but first I need to get mine out.

I am on day 11 of a migraine and I am not in a happy place. I have made sure I have stayed away from my triggers, the medications and dyes I had for the heart tests will be out of my system by now and I am using heating pads, warm cloths on my forehead, breathing techniques, lots of naps, staying out of the heat outside, removing stressors - everything I can think of that has ever worked in the past.

I have a ton of stuff to do and to be very honest I am really tired of health problems. My life is finally settling down into something I like and I don't want to have to deal with my health.

It actually isn't a migraine at the moment, but is still a very severe pounding headache and I feel it wanting to upgrade.

There, that's better. Thanks for listening.

I know I'm several days late, but I wanted to thank everyone for your comments and stories after my post last week. I got some good laughs reading them.
Laurie, I hope your head feels better soon!

Tomorrow SS will announce the amount of the COLA increase for January. It is expected to be between 1.3 and 1.4 percent. It is based on the price index of July, August and September. Which ticks me off. If there is a huge increase in June, and then prices only partially adjust in July, that is not taken into account. Because of the drought, food prices will now start to go up. October through to the end of the year are not part of the formula.

Isn't it cute how they give a SS increase with one hand and then take part of it away with the other hand when they raise the Medicare cost?

Not only that, but every time I get a raise, my rent goes up and my food stamps go down, erasing my raise plus some.

My food stamps went down by $1. My rent went up in August by $7. Now I have to notify food stamps of my rent increase so they will raise it by $10. I don't understand how they do their math, but I still gain a little. Just made a note to self to take care of it tomorrow.

Do you pay your own Medicare premium? I don't. Medicaid pays for mine. and what MassHealth (Medicaid) doesn't cover, my Elder Service Plan pays for. Yet my premium for Medicare is figured into my food stamps.
