Its a 3 day weekend here in the States so I hope all my American friends have a safe and enjoyable weekend!

Thursday I went to see a doctor about a medication adjustment for my OCD. As my hearing has declined, my obsessive behaviors have gotten more pronounced and impactful. I tried to manage things myself, but my version of  “managing things” is really just avoidance of situations and lots of meds to help me sleep. So, she decided to increase my medication to a dose that is more appropriate for OCD and take Klonopin twice daily until my medication reaches the appropriate levels. This wasn’t an easy visit for me, but mental health is important. Also, not easy because my insurance doesn’t cover mental health at all. How sucky is that?!?

This past week was the first full week of school for the students and everyone survived. The kids have settled into their schedules and we are building routines. So far, everything is going well! September and October are super busy months for me as a teacher-meet the teacher nights, open house, ACT testing. Once November hits I will be glad for the break!

I’ve been re-binging on The Big Bang Theory because it always makes me smile! Do you enjoy binging a ‘comfort show’?

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Aww darling I am sorry to hear your hearing hasn’t returned yet and that you are going through this. You are right in how important mental health is. Take care of yourself hun.

    Comfort TV show for me is Start Trek.

  2. Samantha I think you really need a break from everything health related! Dang girl you’ve carried some heavy stuff these last months! I hope your new medicine will do wonders. Have a wonderful week!

  3. I’m happy to see you loved How to Love a Duke in Ten Days, too! Hope we both enjoy Outflox.

    Glad to hear you got your meds adjusted. That sucks that mental health isn’t covered! Hope you have a nice 3 day weekend, Samantha! 🙂

  4. You are absolutely right about the need to take care of your mental health, and I’m glad you’re doing so! Too bad your insurance doesn’t cover it, though. I thought mental health coverage was mandated by law under the ACA,…

    I do enjoy watching “comfort shows” — mine tend to be British mystery series (especially the Miss Marple series starring Joan Hickson, but also the Poirots with David Suchet, the Campion series with Peter Davison, and a bunch of other ones.) And then there are the favorite movies, like The Sound of Music, the Harry Potter films, the Lord of the Rings…

    I hope your week goes well!

  5. So sorry you are struggling – but like everyone else I’m horrified that your insurance doesn’t extend to mental health issues… What a disgrace! Yes – I always turn to The Big Bang Theory when the world doesn’t play nice, as well as Dad’s Army which also makes me laugh. I hope the coming week is a good one:)

    • Yeah I was very disappointed to see the coverage from my insurance. Basically, if I were hospitalized with a mental health crisis, they would cover 80% but otherwise its all out of network.

  6. Snap! We’ve been rewatching the Big Bang Theory. Week two of the rewatch complete and we’re mid point on S3… Haven’t got much reading done though but it’s been doing wonders for my sanity this past couple of weeks!
    I’m sorry to hear your insurance doesn’t cover mental health… It’s so important but it’s something that is heavily underfunded and often ignored.

  7. It is always surprising (and disappointing) when I hear about insurance that doesn’t cover mental health issues. How is it any different than appointments for bronchitis or a broken arm? Or how are those meds any different than meds for high blood pressure or migraines? I just don’t understand.
