Common Questions and Answers about Vision insurance for retired military


Avatar n tn I have no complications after having this disease for over 17 years. No branch of the military will allow me to enlist due to the fact that I am a diabetic. Considering I am perfectly able to do anything that the military requires, I think this is extremely unfair and unjust.

1199040 tn?1265239024 We can not and do not want to get anything from the military for infecting Vernon. It is impossible to prove. This day is long gone. It is enough for us to know and to understand how and when it happened. We have good insurance that military provides, and we are happy with that. I don't know why there are less Vietnam era women vets that are infected, but I am sure that they exist. Maybe the reason is that there was much less women serving then men.
Avatar n tn it keeps moving out until it's gone, starts off not being able to focus then it clears up with the jittery patterns moving to my peripheral vision/side view..then a bit of a headache for about a day to day 1/2. I think I'm missing something in my diet.
Avatar n tn Once I completed the round, the blurred vision, and head pressure came back.. I have been using Alavert D12 and Flonase for past week.

1166523 tn?1264368243 I have found that dealing with military docs can be a real pain sometimes. I am so thankful for the insurance, but sometimes the quality we get isn't all that great. I am so sorry you had to go through the same thing I am and am glad that you finally found a diagnosis. The radiologist that read my mri was military and believe me when I say I am not surprised at the fact that they read it the way they did.

544292 tn?1268886268 I think all of these ideas about going to a detox facility are ... not designed for me. Cause I have no insurance. I don't want another drug to get off this one.

Avatar f tn Don't let them tell you he won't improve and don't give up fighting with the insurance companies for more therapy. My dad was 80 when he had his stroke so I think they just wanted to give up on him and put him in a nursing home. Good luck to you and keep us posted on his progress.

You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.

286034 tn?1201100440 ) So much for being valedictorian. I worked for a few years in geology consulting, and then moved into environmental farm planning. I quit work after I had my first baby to stay home and raise him proper. Been loving being at home, enjoying the kiddos and fleshing out my passions in other areas. I love to knit, bake, garden, and do pysanky (egg decorating with wax and dyes). I'm hoping to make some money with it - maybe not a lot, but enough I can justify buying supplies!
Avatar f tn Going to gym working out Taking a vacation in a hotel for a few days (every pain is gone). A good massage, hard massaging, getting the knotts out (dont get a weak cheap massage). Massage therapy for me is the best option because i dont have time to vacation.

Do your selves a favor and take a break.

3119293 tn?1342054132 I was able to sleep a little during the day and last night got about 6 hours sleep. But for the last two days I've had this feeling that my body's just not right. I've not had any nausea or vomiting, just diarrhea and a general feeling of malaise. And really not much energy or any ambition. Not sure if I'm bordering on depression. (Though I did have some ambition to get a little done on the computer when I woke up at 2:00 am this morning, but that only lasted a couple of hours.
