I titled my post that because it’s truly amazing at how our brains seemingly repair certain damages done to it, or certain types of abuse we’ve put our bodies through. I can say that I’m nowhere near as dumb as I thought I was because I’m currently enrolled in online college classes for Medical Billing & Coding, at Ultimate Medical Academy, and so far I’ve maintained a 3.0 GPA!!! I’m completely amazed by the amount of new information that I’ve not only managed to learn but having also retained it. Now that I’m over 2-months in and taking 2-courses now instead of one, meaning double the workload every week, and I’m still going strong. I won’t lie when I sit here and say I’m a huge procrastinator always starting something but never finishing it. Whether I make excuses saying it’s because of my ADD or just because whatever it was wasn’t important enough for me to continue messing with. That there wasn’t gonna be any kind of gain by finishing whatever it was I started. Like so many attempts of writing by hand the book I’m really trying to complete. I keep an up-to-date copy on my laptop as well as a hand-written copy on notebook paper (in case anything happens to the copy I have stored on computer). I’ve completed the first two weeks taking just one course and started my third week taking two. Not only has the difficulty increased but so has my workload throughout the week.
When I first seen my grades for all completed work assignments and assessments for the first 2-weeks I noticed they were in numerical order from 1-4. Me thinking 1 was an A and 4 being and F. Was I ever surprised and blown away when I found out it was the complete opposite. 4 being the highest score and 1 being the lowest. I have way more 3 & 4’s than I do 2’s & 1’s. That was all good and fine when I had first started. However, going right along into almost my 3rd month things are becoming even more difficult. I’m one hell of a note taker when reading the assigned chapters. Plus, so far I’ve also done the Extra Credit provided at the end of each weeks coursework, and I’m proud to say I’ve aced all of them weeks 1-3. On both courses as well when I started having to take the two instead of just the one.
I’m still having trouble filling out the actual forms required for me to learn, but only certain parts of them. Mainly, the CMS-1500 paper claim we fill out to submit to the insurance company/companies that pay what’s remaining after the patient deductible if they have one. I’m staying optomistic and positive though. I won’t let myself be beaten by a piece of paperwork. It’s just not gonna happen.
