VA approved my application for health benefits- I got the letter yesterday. With all the issue over mental health care, I had almost forgotten that this means I get regular medical care, which I haven't had in over a year. I have to have allergy medications/decongestant and haven't had a mammo in about 3 years although I'm supposed to have one once a year so they can keep an eye on my "tissue". Anyway, I was sitting here this morning feeling like my head is exploding due to having to use OTC allergy medications instead of an rx'd one when it dawnedf on me that I can finally go to a dr!! Ok, I called and now have to go thru an enrollment coordinator at the VA center so maybe it's still going to take a while to actually see a dr but I'm still happy. I'll be even happier if I can get them to cover dental and have this darn tooth taken out that was supposed to come out 3-4 years ago. LOL!!
