So, I can't even remember where I left off. No more nasty foreclosure letters-yet. I ran around and applied to at least half a dozen fast food jobs and am quite reluctant to continue to pursue them (THIS is where my college degree with honors got me?!?!) uuug

I also have a major dental emergency (I think #12 -top left incisor) has halfway died, cracked and is doing some nerve stuff. Now it's hard to eat, even eggs which you can kind of mush up with your tongue I applied and was turned down for all the financing the local dentists accept and the next best thing is a clinic about 30min away that does about 50%off if you qualify. Anyhow having two little ones and very little sleep (pain woke me up around 4am) and pain somewhere between 8-10 on the 1-10 scale is trying me today.

When stuff like this happens I get really : at the lack of options out there for the uninsured... sometimes I would feel better off ANYWHERE but the US!

Anyhow with the university in session again I start work today, so that's an extra little bit here or there (when the check FINALLY goes through... seems to take 4-6 weeks )

Anyhow hang in there love and to those that need them...
I agree with the Dental woes. Is there a dental school near you? or a university with dental?????

there are a few in TX, but none near me. I did find a community dental clinic about 30 min from here that operates on a sliding scale (which will probably run about the same as the big Dental schools). I have to show proof of income and our printer is out of ink... I'll have to see what I can get done by shaking or changing my color scale somehow to make the suckers print.

I'll be heading to the 1pm walk-in and bracing myself for extraction. I figure that will probably be the cheapest way to deal with it I'm not functioning well on the pain and that's after 800mg ibuprofen ever six hours- but at least that allows me to sleep and suck down a little yogurt. Wish me luck.

Good luck with your appointment and I hope it goes well. I definitely feel for you.. I desperately need dental work too but the only place around me that accepts medicaid is through the county dental clinic, and I've heard terrible things about it. Supposedly there's a 6+ month waiting list and the dentists there will only do fillings and extractions... no 'cosmetic' anything. One of my front teeth needs a replacement crown, but if I go there they'll just take it out instead and I don't fancy going around with a missing tooth so I've been avoiding going there..
