INSURANCE, FINALLY! OF COURSE, THIS IS AFTER WE ARE ALL BANKRUPT, BUT I’LL TAKE IT!!

Holy Mother Love, they have FINALLY passed ARICA in the MA senate!!!  Our state has become one of the 20+ that have passed Autism insurance reform bills, and I could NOT BE MORE ECSTATIC!

Hurry up and enforce it now, because Mama wants to make an appointment for Ro’s re-eval, and I haven’t been able to do it for a long time, due to the $3,000+ price tag!

I can’t even express how unbelievable it will be to not have to choose between OT, speech, ABA, evaluations needed for proper education, etc. etc. etc. etc…….

I know that it won’t be perfect, and I’m sure we will still be handing over the bills for something (copays, coinsurance, etc.) but at least it will be a recognized covered condition now!

SO happy for all of the children and families that will be helped by this.  NOW, let all other states/countries follow suit!

No child should be denied medical care because of creative tactics and sneaky wording of diagnoses.  Just shameful that they have been allowed to do this for so long, but so thankful that we are moving forward now 🙂

Yay Mass!  Mami loves!!!  XOXOXO

MAMA NEEDS A DAMN VAMPIRE INTERVENTION!

No, this has absolutely nothing to do with autism – but I seriously need to be on A & E’s Intervention…for damn vampire addiction!!!!

I swore that I wouldn’t get into that whole Twilight phenomenon!  And there I am, eyes bugging out when Jacob takes his shirt off!   The boy is barely legal in real life!  That’s not right.

Now, here comes Alan Ball with True Blood for HBO.  Sigh…I loved Six Feet Under, and now I cry waiting for Sunday and my weekly fix of more frikken vampires!!!!

I hate TV!  I will admit to being addicted to the computer, but the TV held no grip over me, until this blood-sucking show was talked about too much on Facebook.  I blame Facebook!!!

Anyway…Bill is boring, but Eric is HOT!  That sums it up for Mama.

And Lafayette is so damn hysterical, I rewind his funny scenes about 10,000 times.

HA HA HA!!!!

And YUM.

IT’S A START

Too bad it’s too late for us with that fourth bullet point, but at least things are moving in the right direction.

Now, can we PLEASE pass the bill in ALL states to require insurance to pay for autism therapies!!?!??

Here’s The Autism Society’s article on the health care reform and how it will affect those with autism concerns…

READ IT AND LOVE IT, BABY!!!  READ IT AND LOVE!!

Now, Ronan James voted for McCain in the school-wide mock election.  After weeks of Obama Mama rhyming songs, all of my training went down the drain!! 

Who did you vote for, Ro?

I voted for John McCain!

RONAN!  After my weeks of training!!  NO!  WHY??!!

I like his name.  It’s easy to say.

Sigh…
