Ooooh no, I'm almost positive Tricare won't cover any of that or naturopaths.

I am on Tricare too and I pay outta pocket. Molly charges me $80/visit, which is less than she was charging me at her old clinic.

I was recommended Barbara Staab, ARNP by someone on here. She's covered by Tricare.

You can find it on meetup.com by searching for attachment parenting in tacoma

I will hold the first meetup at my house from 9am to 11am. PM for more info or go to meetup.com.

I know I've only met a few of you, but I'd love to meet more!

Kids and parents welcome and bring an ap friend if you want.
I'm so glad I went today! Thanks for starting this up!

We had an appointment there last week and it was great. I plan to keep going back.

I am also looking for a Family Medicine doc which is why I was coming to this thread tonight. I really need a doctor for myself since the kids are covered. We went to the Tricare office in Madigan last week and I found out that we automatically get assigned docs at the hospital on post unless we opt out by signing a waiver. Then, if there's a doctor you want to see, as long as they're in network, you can see them. Just put their name on your waiver. No need to transfer to standard or anything. Therefore, I need a doc for myself! Right now I'm assigned to the internal medicine clinic cause that's the only dept taking new patients.

I have another question! I have a lot of things I'd like to part with. Things such as bedding, towels, pots and pans, dishes. Where is a good place to donate these items to?

We've been using freecycle.

I decided to go with the Fir Creek Peds for the kiddos. I saw the doc I was assigned at Madigan today and really like him a lot, so I think I'll stick with him for now and just take the kids off post.

Goodwill is another place to donate to or Value Village takes donations.

I had to pick another random doc to get back on Prime, stupid Army kicked me off. I'll just change my PCM once I move. I enrolled online so that may be why they didn't have the PCM I was thinking about. Even though I go to the Naturopath, its nice to have an allopathic doc as back up.

I am still plugging away at the packing, kinda hard to do when ya live with other people who keep using your stuff.

Freecyle ... eh. I did join the Lakewood Freecycle last week and I may offer some of my items there but when we were in NC, I frequently had no shows or people picking through and taking what they wanted and it turned me off the whole Freecycle thing. I just want this stuff gone. I was hoping someone would know of a DV shelter or another place like that where I could take this stuff. It's not junky at all.

Isn't there a place like that on Lewis? Fisher house...I think.

I go to sign my lease on Friday and I am hoping to move in to my new place this weekend. I may have to beg, cause I know she wanted to make sure it was really clean. I need to get out of this house ASAP. My sister and her friends keep breaking all of my stuff and I don't have the money to replace it. *sigh*

It will be so nice to get outta this place.

This article was in the paper awhile back about Tacoma Housing Authority seeking donations for foster kids setting up their first apartments.

I'm so bummed. I live just outside of downtown, in a fabulous condo with a fabulous landlady. She's the best and this place is great. We anticipated settling in for a few years here while figuring out "what next".

She called us yesterday to tell us that they are working towards buying some huge dream home, and will have to sell all their properties, so if we wanted first crack at buying the condo we could. Well that owuld be great, in a year, once credit is figured out and all. And she's asking about 150K over what 3 condos in the building just went for. She's nuts. There's no way.

She says that if they put it on the market she'll tell them that the tenants would be happy being here for a few years, but come on, what buyer is going to do that? And even if they did, the landlord wouldn't be our fave lady!

So we'll likely have to move at the end of the lease (she said they won't do anything until close to lease end). Again. That makes a move here this May, a move to the old apt (across the street) May of '07, in May of '06 we moved into the landlady's townhouse (awful place but brand new so she didn't know), and before that we were almost 3 years in a horrid apartment (landlady was the manager of the complex), before that we were a year in BIL's condo. Moving is expensive, stressful, and my son really hates it. But there's no way we can afford to buy this place. Renting was just fine.

Dangit.

Molly, I totally get how you feel. I have moved every year for the past three years. I hope you find something suitable for your family.
