What keeps me up at night/I can see clearly now 

Yesterday I had PRK (laser vision correction) on my left eye, and while I should be filled with excitement about being free of the tyranny of glasses I cannot. This happy news is diminished when my future feels so uncertain. Everyday is a struggle - a constant battle against the onslaught of fatigue. Provigil worked better than any other anti-fatigue medication, it was approved for coverage by my previous insurance provider and yet somehow my new insurance provider thinks it knows better than the other providers, neurologists specialising in MS, not to mention my OWN doctor!!! Is it arrogance or a sick, cruel way to save a buck? You be the judge.

I recall reading in the news how a girl who had been denied an organ transplant died just after her medical insurance changed it's decision to give her a transplant. The health insurance industry has gone too far and I have no doubt that it's meddling into people's personal health decisions are far more pervasive than is reported.
