This is the second (maybe third …) year I’ve managed to really come out good with the charges for my mental health care.
I’m not sure how it works, but apparently we pay 20%/80% until we meet our out of pocket, then the health care is no charge.
I’ve met my out of pocket.
I’ve been authorized for 10 visits, which get me past all this mess.
So, I got 6 visits free through the Employee Assistance plan and then 10 visits free with the regular insurance.
Plus got a new CPAP out of the deal. Which reminds me that I need to check on my mask status. I think I might be due a new one.
And yes, I am and they will be shipping it on Monday after they check my benefits.
The biggest reason I’m seeing a mental health professional is to learn how to deal with my co-workers in a way other than coming home and eating all evening.
Special ed coworker keeps doing little things that stress me and my principal out. I’m trying hard to make sure I’m not part of that issue and keeping control of the situation. Can say much more but the whole situation may wind someone in court. Maybe even me.
Testing this week. Way too many instructions to keep them all straight and every day I’ve made a minor mistake Like today didn’t have the kids names, student ids, and test booklet numbers on a form. Yesterday didn’t have the test booklet numbers on the answer sheets.
Found out today that I have to do an extra week of training – first week of June, and I can almost guarantee it will be a waste of time, as they are having the PreAP CS teacher in PreAP Math sessions. Also over the last two days, I’ve been told I can’t do my AP training which I haven’t done in three years and they’ve done major revisions on the test and I have 4 students working on AP.
Being told portables had been broken into and computers stolen. No emails, no specifics, just a heads up. That means major paperwork, but okay.
Little things that add up.
Good news, it’s been months since an adult had a temper tantrum in my room (well, I might have had one in front of my 8th period class when they were acting up last).
