Oh the ache....

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

So, I went to the Dentist last week. I was unsure whether or not I was still under my mom's coverage, so I was completely ready to pay for it. We got the bill today, and we're going to try to submit a form to get it 80% coverage, but if not, the bill is a whopping $335.

Oh, but that's not the worst part. Sunday night one of my teeth was aching, I thought nothing of it, since I've had so much orthodonic work done over the years that I get little toothaches once in a while. However, since then, the pain has got a lot worse and it is now a dull, throbbing ache. So, I've made another appointment on Thursday to go back and see the Dentist. So, I'm hoping that whatever it is gets resolved, but I'm bracing for the worst.

It's a rough life, not having coverage. But, at the same time, I'm glad that shit is going down now, rather than 6 mos from now when I'm dirt-broke and in London.

At the same time, I am considering taking $1,000 out of my VISA fund to cover the dentist (both times), as well as the inevitable trip tp the eye doctor, orthodontist and all those other wonderful "-ist"s I will have to visit. Eeesh.

I hear you there. Dentist are expensive and generally not the most pleasant place you want to revisit within a week. I got a wisdom tooth out last Friday, so I'm in the same boat. Not fun! I hope it all turns out well.
