Under Predicament

I've been in the hospital for three days and am constantly wondering about how high our bill will be. We have had 22,000 pesos on our account after only two days, so imagine what it'll be in a week.

My doctor told me yesterday that I'd have to stay for a week to finish my antibiotic. The antibiotic is administered by injection rather than orally (dextrose). I'll ask her at her next visit if I can continue my prescription at home, if that's possible, only to save money, but I doubt she'll let me because most of my medications are administered via IV.

In my current situation, I've understood how vital health aid, such as Philhealth, might be, especially if I end myself in the hospital.

I was so keen to apply for one previously, but after seeing on the news that you will process it in the office rather than the hospital if you are hospitalized, I grew hesitant, and now I regret not doing so. Although my husband owns one, I am unable to use it because we are not married. And there's this one friend of mine, Madel, who has offered to pay my Philhealth one-year payment so that I can start using it right now. But, even if she paid the one-year payment, I can't utilize it right now. I believe I will have to wait three more months to benefit from it.

So, if I ever get out of this predicament, I'm going to apply for Philhealth since, according to my doctor, I'm going to be in the hospital a lot for the rest of my life. I became a burden to my family.

My hubby and I had an argument just this afternoon. However, I completely understand him. He is extremely stressed by our current predicament. We had no one to turn to for assistance. Even his family has refused to assist us. We have just each other. I simply cried and felt terrible because I am to blame for our current state. He then walked out to get my medicines, and when he returned, he hugged and kissed me and apologized. I sobbed again; why am I such a crybaby? I returned his hug. Then we're all set.

To be honest, I often felt hopeless. It would be preferable to end my life so that I am no longer a burden to them. That's what came to mind following my prior disagreement with him. But I realized that my husband's efforts would be in vain, and he is trying everything he can to help me improve, so why would I blatantly take my life?

Everything will be alright. In God's help...

My prayers and hope that you get better real soon. Aside from Philhealth, you may want to consider checking some prepaid health cards. Sometimes mas mura yun and they can cover some of the bills. Not really sure if this may work now since na admit ka na sa hospital pero mga ganun.

Keep fighting friend, you know that God does not put us battles that we can not win but it will always be so if we are by his side. Have strength and remember that you have others by your side who need you, your company and your love. And remember your cats? who would take care of them like you. Keep on fighting, God is by your hand.

Win it sister, win it in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and give Him the Glory always. It is my idea that you laugh a little. God loves you and don't forget it.
