This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

For puking and the color works pukeewogh

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

KIDI919--$2000??!!!! Wow. That's insane!

Mine was testing for a panel of 28 mutations to see if I carried anything that would explain why I got cancer at 33, and to help me decide if I might want a mastectomy or not. I have no quarrel with my insurance company; it's early in the process but they've covered everything in full so far and I paid nothing out of pocket for this testing. I've paid a bit extra for the best plan my employer offers since I started with them and basically never used it, and now it's suddenly justified 10 years of costs just in the last month. But when I see these EOBs I just don't know how many people are able to manage. $1000 for 5 minutes of a doctor's time and what was basically a 23andMe spit test, in terms of the level of procedure required? Bonkers.

BluegirlRed: I just found the EOB for the Oncotype testing done by G Health.( IDT I can say their name). The charge was actually $4,620. At 1st the ins co denied the claim but later paid it in full.

I was fortunate to live in a state that did sliding income for the State exchange after I could not work and lost my work insurance at that point. It was reasonable and great insurance with a $700 a year deductible and I did not have to fight with them about much of anything. Of course a lot of tests had to be "pre-authorized" first. I thinnk that happens with anything .

Son is very busy this time of year cutting and baling and God knows what else so he did deliver it and called me later so I delivered him dinner to some spray field.

Bad news today...lost my job because my boss is basically dying and can no longer keep the office open. So he sold the practice on Friday and my last day is Thursday. IDK if the new guy will offer us hygienists a job at his office or just take on our patients. I feel awful for him and his family. I have worked with him for 23 years and we are all like family. I will miss the patients too. I've seen many of them grow up, marry etc. Fing sucks!

I'm so sorry, KBL. It's awful to lose a job you love, especially for such a sad reason. Maybe you can talk to the new dentist to see what they have in mind.

I had the same experience with Covered California, bcincolorado. The film production company my husband and I both worked for closed with no notice a couple of weeks after my diagnosis. We had less than a week to find new insurance. Thankfully the Blue Cross plan was far less than our private plan and covered far more. It probably saved us $100,000 in copays alone.

Those of us who live in blue states have a far different experience with Obamacare than people in red states do. Mostly because our governors embraced it and wanted it to work. It honestly saved my life. Who else would step in and cover me in the middle of treatment for cancer?

Steam room for anger - ok, does anyone else get angry when doctors (or nurses) imply that they call the shots, and there is no asking you for consent. For instance, lately I've been told:

"We will do a mastetomy and a reconstruction" - I would never consent to a reconstruction. Why assume you can do a reconstruction?

"I'm not springing more radiation on you" - great, but I would not consent to more at this point, I'm not driving back and forth every day again anytime soon. Why assume I would do that if it's "sprung" on me?

"I'm not going to make you stay on these drugs if you can't tolerate them" - oh - so my plan to stop if this happens is irrelevant, it's about what you'd allow?

"If you don't go well there are other things we can try" - yes, that's assuming I'd want to try other things and give consent.

I acknowledge that (most of the time) these people mean well, and probably don't even realise what they've said / how it comes across. But this is a steam room for anger, and bloody hell it makes me ANGRY! My body does not cease to belong to me when this happens. I'm so sick of hearing all this crap.

I no longer feel comfortable displaying my diagnosis.

Ruby - I have not been told I will do any procedure or drug. Some have been more forceful in their recommendations, but I have always felt in charge. I'm not necessarily asked what I think, but they have always been open to questions/concerns, respectful of my decisions. I have had problems when I feel as if my concerns are dismissed or attributed to something other than the cancer or cancer treatments.

rubyred, that type of language pisses me off too! And it really shouldn't be happening in oncology! They need to speaking *with* us, not telling us what to do! Grrr.

I don't get to too frequently but when I do i like to rephrase things back to them " I see. So your *recommendation* is this surgery?" " just so I understand, you would *recommend* a trial of this medication?" That often takes the wind right out of their sails & reminds them of shared decision making.

Some drs with whom I have a long history I give more leeway because we have a relationship where I will do what they recommend and we all know we're on the same page about how to proceed anyway...but noobs to my team, nope. Tell me your clincial decision making process and your recommendations and alternatives, and be prepared to discuss.

Sorry to hear and see that, gals. I bowed out weeks ago. I did try to keep up with reading that topic, but I couldn't keep up, which was a good thing now I guess. Sometimes when you are on forums like this, it's still best to keep a distance not push your view too far, like perhaps learning or hearing from someone you thought was one way, but turns out to be another. Slugging it out on a public forum isn't helpful in that way. There was some good debate though. Shame.

Had an abdominal US this morning and blood test on liver enzymes. First lab-GGT just came back @ 140. Here we go.......another failed test!!!..ugh! Praying my phone doesn't ring right away--later rather than sooner. Seems that's moderately elevated and not too terrible.

Wrenn, I’m with you. Looks like the Mods’ decision is written in stone. I am angry and venting that my Stage 4 position on life’s exit ramp has been harder to bear with the isolation and fear of Covid. I don’t think it was wrong to forcefully vent about a diminished quality of life. It does inspire strong language retorts when someone uses language to make us feel expendable. Folks who represent that point of view and do not feel obligated to take action for the public good damage my mental health. We matter, and ironically they also matter and have the ability to make us ALL safer. Thanks for making the forcedshut down public.

Goodness KBL, no one has been disparaging you for starting the conversation. In fact, as demonstrated by its length, it is a long overdue conversation. In fact, by definition a conversation is a mostly informal sharing of news and ideas between people and you are to be praised for starting it. However, you do not need to own it or personally embrace the opinions expressed. Rightly or wrongly, I feel you have personalized this too far for your own health & well being. There is a block function here which might be helpful for you so you can't look at topics that cause you such displeasure.

I worry about you. Breast cancer is difficult enough and Covid just adds to the uncertainty of life. All we can see of you right now is your yelling & profanity. To my uneducated eyes, those seem like worrisome symptoms of a person who is on edge. If I am misunderstanding, forgive me.
