Blessing in disguise?

This morning I found out that my new insurance requires a referral to see my chiropractor, whom I've been going to for a year. Great. I've been putting off going for WEEKS until today when my tweaked neck evolved into back and chest pain too. And now I can't go until I see my GP - yes, I actually have to go in for an office visit to get the referral. LAMENESS abounds.

I did manage to get an appt with my GP on Saturday morning, thank goodness. But normally I could call my chiro in the morning and stop in for my adjustment on my way home from work the same day. Instead I get to be in pain for who knows how much longer. Sigh...

BUT!! There is a silver lining - I'm going to take advantage of the visit with my GP to get a referral for acupuncture too. Hah! Take that, insurance!

Updated to add: (On a totally unrelated note) This morning I ignored Atticus ENTIRELY, kept my eyes closed, and was as still as humanly possible, and he went away and didn't come back until the alarm went off!! Ahh... sweet sleepy bliss...

Insurance is such a pain in the ass. I am very fortunate to have the insurance I do now.

We have a self feeder and revolving water fountain for our cat. She never bothers us for food and miracously she does not overeat. You could always get one and see. If he is overeating, you could just put a little bit in there.
