Diggin myself out.

We all know the south has been hit with tremendous snow and ice, while I have found myself buried in a maze of insurance mumbo jumbo.

On December 11th I was involved in an automobile accident. A person pulled in front of me to make a left hand turn. Needless to say, my car is - nope scratch that - was totaled. This one random act has changed my life.

I find it very hard to concentrate now and in that sense, my ability to put out timely newsletters has suffered. We take for granted that we can sit down and let our fingers fly across the keyboard, transmitting thoughts to letters, then to images. Yet, let stress mix into the picture and suddenly the images become fleeting, the ability to focus for indefinite periods of time vanish.

Over one month into this, no car, no resolution, nothing. The more I try to take charge the harder the insurance companies work against me. I'm finding it amazing how quickly they want their material, then how long it takes them to get back to you. I cry more easily. I get very frustrated. I feel in the space of going on 6 weeks I have become a has been.

I hope this stops soon. I'm tired of it all.
The merit of insurance should be - how quickly they come to your aid and those involved NOT by how much they can cheat you, or figure a way to deny you what puts you back on your feet.

I'm sure dealing with another insurance company, they must protect their client. But really, even when you claim responsibility. If you've done so "man up".

I should learn patience from this. I may turn the other cheek but do not plan on kicking my a**.

Glad you stopped by Kaye. Yes, dog gone it, you've been out in warp space playing up that cheeky lizard I bet. Glad to have you back on this third rock from the sun. :o)
