No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"The meeting of two personalities is like the contract of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." - C. G. Jung

I can no longer put it off. The deadline is drawing near. What I am alluding to is the research needed to make the necessary decision about my Medicare medical benefits.

I received sometime in October a notice from Anthem Blue Cross that it was no longer going to offer the Freedom Blue Plan. I had been participating in this plan for the past year and now at the beginning the first of the year I would have something else.

Drats! As usual, everything is more expensive. With the Freedom Blue Plan, my doctor's co-pay was only $15 and I saw him/her only three to four times a year. The big plus was there was no monthly premium.

I made calls, wrote for additional information, and even had an insurance man come to my home to go over my options. He was very nice and informative by the way.

Going with member satisfaction, the location in which I live, and what I could afford, I have made my decision. Tomorrow I will make the call.

What I am not happy with is that now I will have to make a monthly premium payment of $35 in addition to my co-pays. However, this plan does have the Part D for prescriptions. Still, it is more out-going money than in-coming money.

Although, I think I saw somewhere that Social Security is actually going to give us a cost of living increase. I'm sure it is not so but I can home. The only draw back for me is this increase will cause my rent to rise. It feels like I can't get ahead.

All this information, the figures running around in my head, and the concerns of the future, I have a headache.

I'm going to call it a day.
