My mother was so tired last night. After dealing with Blue Cross Blue Shield yesterday, she was just exhausted.

I envision her in the ocean, trying to swim to safety. Blue Cross is on a boat with a life preserver on a rope. It is her life preserver, one that she paid for herself. But they have it on a rope and keep pulling it out of her reach every time she has almost grabbed hold of it.

She is having to waste her energy fighting for something that shouldn't be negotiable. I don't understand.
