The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has established safe practice guidelines to manage conscious sedation without an anesthesiologist for minor procedures. These AAP criteria include (1) a full-time licensed clinician (nurse, physician, physician assistant, surgeon assistant, respiratory therapist) who is strictly and exclusively monitoring the patient's breathing, level of consciousness, vital signs, and airway; (2) standard procedures for monitoring vital signs; and (3) immediate availability (on site) of airway equipment, resuscitative medications, suction apparatus, and supplemental oxygen delivery systems.
I totally agree too that you ABSOLUTELY need to have hobbies and passions that do not involve your partner. Who on earth wants to be someone else’s only source of happiness and they always depend on you to give them all your free time. I’d rather stay single my entire life than giving up all my passions and spend all my off-work hours with a single partner. Just thinking about it makes me feel nausea. I very briefly had a partner years ago that had no hobbies going on. At first his sweetness and availability attracted me. But soon after I started feeling like a caged animal. He wanted to spend the whole weekend together every weekend and I had a ton of other things I wanted to do and cultivate. I felt such a burden that after that I stayed completely single for a full year, that’s how disgusted I was in the idea of a relationship at that particular point. He also looked awful because he did not workout. Taking care of yourself, learning about fitness, pushing yourself in training sessions etc, is a hobby that takes time. But that is the only thing that is going to allow you to be healthy and energetic and good looking for a long time.
If you got nothing going on in your life, then you need an equally lazy partner. End of the story. Do not say those that have serious hobbies are bad partners. They are just people that are not gonna grow a big fat belly snuggling on the couch with you for the whole evening and weekend all the time.
If you are active, seek an active person so that they are not clingy. If you are lazy, seek a lazy person so that you don’t get panic attacks because you are alone in the evening. Simple as that.
Ann, you need to be careful receiving unemployment benefits. A person receiving unemployment benefits is essentially certifying that they are ready, willing and able to work. The disability carriers often use this against claimants. With regard to the eye test, you should write the carrier and ask for clarification as to the type of testing that they are seeking. If you cannot afford it, then you need to tell them that as well. If you doctor states that there is no acuity test that will be helpful, then you should get a letter from the doctor stating this information and send it to CIGNA. You must comply with the appeal deadlines CIGNA has provided. If you would like assistance with your claim, please contact us.
