So, a while ago, the enamel on my tooth chipped and I went to the dentist to get it filled. This was maybe... a year or so ago now.
A few minutes ago, the filling popped out. It's felt loose and weird the past few weeks, and I suppose I should have gone to the dentist when my prescription for the toothpaste/mouthwash she gave me the last time ran out, or when it started to feel loose, but I really hate doctors, and my dentist always seems to find a reason to yell at me. So now, there's a giant hole in my tooth that doesn't hurt, per se, but I know it's there and that it shouldn't be there and I haven't tried eating yet, but I'm going to guess it won't be happy fun times.
Did I mention that my health insurance doesn't cover dental? Because it doesn't. The last time, the visit cost me $130 bucks I didn't have to get the work done. I'm hoping the receptionist is nice enough to give me a break this time, too - not that I have $130 this time, either, but I'm guessing that's still better than the full price of the visit.
Why is it that every time I have my finances under control, even for a little while, something happens to fuck them over again? Christmas is coming and so are my loans for this month, and now I have to dig into my savings fund - the money that's supposed to be towards my future apartment/vacations next year, depending on which one I decide to dip into. At this rate, I might as well close the Alaska fund, I already used almost half towards loans when I lost my job back in May.
To say this blows would be an understatement.
