Jon iz teh kewl: tell him to lose weight.

especially if he's actually normal weight.

/yes i know fat people get diabetes 2 (also)


It's Type 1.

Wait, medicaid won't pay for this procedure? I know they only cover medically necessary procedures but I can't imagine that they'd deem this an elective procedure.
 
2012-05-16 03:00:35 PM
Can't get it to accept email address. I'll try it again at home. It may be our firewall here at work.

Have him contact the Lions Club, too. They do a lot of work to prevent blindness

I had to retype it. Probably one of the email mixer upper thingies Fark does.

I don't use Paypal. Is there a snail mail addy or PO Box I can send a check to?
As a fellow diabetic I'd like to help out. EIP.

I had the same problem when I tried to copy and paste from mr_bunny's post. When I actually typed in his address, it went through.

LineNoise: that all sounds....kind of shady.


mr_bunny is probably the third most honest person you'll ever met.
 
2012-05-16 03:03:57 PM
Not to make light of the situation, but have you tried eye bleach? It's Fark's go-to solution for eye damage.

Salem Witch: mr_bunny: joeycolby: You're a good man, bunny.

He is an awesome guy. We can literally save him from going blind.

Which would be awesome :-)


Behold the power of Fark!

I thought this was going to be a different "bunny" and got really excited. Then I read the DIT and felt bad.
 
2012-05-16 03:04:43 PM
Yeah, that 'merikuh for-profit "f**k-em for all of their money" health care is great - ain't it?

That's what I figured but I wasn't going to be "that guy". Thanks for taking one for the team. Actually I think you need to be blind require income of less than 80 percent of the Federal Poverty Level which currently is $11,170 for a single-person household. Don't know if our buddy qualifies or not, again I'm not going to be "that guy."

My wife has this. She got laser treatments to fix it. At some point and she'll need them again.
What procedure are they trying to get?

mr_bunny: MissFeasance: mr_bunny: There is a good chance your better half did as well, although the copious moonshine might have erased that night from his mind.

I asked.... he said "yup, i don't remember anything from atlanta except for moonshine and then the next day"

I was sitting at a table, sipping on a beer and chatting it up with some folks, and he shambles over, slams a half empty mason jar on the table and said, slurringly, "Drink this, bunny!"

"Nope, dude, I am so not gonna slam a bunch of clear whiskey. You enjoy your hangover."

I believe as he wandered away, mumbling something questioning my sexual orientation and associated manhood for not joining him, he indeed drank the whole thing.

I did see him face down in a hallway of the hotel at one point.

/good times


Am I horrible for thinking, "I thought if you drank moonshine like that, you'll go blind"?
 
2012-05-16 03:09:35 PM
Thank god I live in Canada, my wife had a double vitrectomy (due to diabetic retinopathy) shortly after my son was born, as she'd been blind for the entire last trimester. Thankfully after the vitrectomy is preformed it only takes a couple days to get back to normal.
 
2012-05-16 03:10:35 PM
Have you considered illegally getting the operation in Mexico?
 
2012-05-16 03:11:09 PM
Is there a "donation" link, or is a working PayPal account required?

I don't have a PayPal account, but I'd like to help.
 
2012-05-16 03:12:48 PM
Money sent. Wishing the best

Here's my view on the situation: I have never had a reason to believe this farker is shady in any way. I'm going to try to help him in this serious of a situation. If we all give 5-10 bucks we could save his eyesight. If I end up being ripped off of 5 bucks because I tried to be a good person, then that's a price I'm willing to pay.

So far, we've got paypal, paypal and paypal. or you can email me and I can help get snail mail to him.

There are others helping him as well, but they have yet to show up here.

If you want to help, we will find a way to make that happen.

From what I'm reading online, Medicaid would cover this procedure. He needs to get in touch with a social services office and find out if he qualifies for coverage.
 
2012-05-16 03:16:30 PM
Sorry to read about dj4aces. I hope it turns out well.

I have Diabetic Retinopathy checks every year. OK thus far but I once had a fever where there were burst blood vessels and my eyesight blurred so much I thought I was going blind. Fortunately, the docs said I was young and in time it'll heal, which has been the case. And they diagnosed me as Type II diabetic so I got them meds helping.

Good sign for you folks to get checked is when you do a lot of exercise and your eyesight goes a bit blurry.

Bunny is not shady. He won't win any beauty contests, but I absolutely trust him. His word is enough for me.

If I went blind I'd have a hard time figuring out the true cause.

I prefer "ruggedly handsome", but in a pinch "He won't win any beauty contests" will have to do.

2012-05-16 03:22:36 PM
lilbro, artist extraordinaire, is also going through this. They managed to fix one of his eyes, but the other is taking its time getting back to normal.

Every time I see a "diabeetuz" joke, I farking die a little. Earth should be glad I'm not a super villain.
 
2012-05-16 03:22:42 PM
I kicked in a few bucks. Good luck to him, and thanks guys for doing this.

It farking infuriates me that in this country we're reduced to bake sales, change jars at the Kwik-E Mart, and paypal donations to pay for necessary medical procedures.

Best of luck, dude, I hope it works.
 
2012-05-16 03:22:56 PM

skybreaker: You usually don't have to pay for medical proceedures up front........


I'm sitting at home with a tube up my nose, courtesy of the second of two tests I've suffered through today. When I presented my insurance card at the hospital check-in desk, I was told that they expect my share of the bill to be $900+. Then they asked for half of that up front.

I had expected to be billed, but that wasn't presented as an option.
