Still in pain

May 19th, 2008 at 03:50 pm

Went to the periodonist today who said I have a fracture and the tooth must be removed, so off to the oral surgeon. I experience the worst pain today and have been icing it all day, now I see how people get addicted to pain meds, I had to stop myself today. What a terrible feeling. I tried to work a little today and the pain,OMG. I found myself being rude to patients
Now I am starving


May 17th, 2008 at 08:16 pm

I finally built up the courage to apply for the $50k grant for first time home owners, well printing out the paper work and filling it out. It is just a matter of turning it in on Tuesday, since I work all day Monday. Even if I do not get the full amount I would be happy with anything.
On a different note I am little annoyed I ordered one of my books on half.com that stated soft cover and it came today but was the international version. When I emailed the seller she said soft cover meant international which is not true, I have ordered and bought soft cover textbooks both on line and at the college bookstore that were not international and now I think she does not want to give me a refund, but I am waiting for her response and if she doesn’t she will definitely get a negative feedback. She should have noted that the book was an international version like every other seller
Furthermore, the swelling from my tooth has not gone down and I have been on antibiotics since Thursday, now I can say I am still experiencing pain but not as much as before. I don't know if this is from the pain meds or not but what I can say is I AM SICK OF THS &*%%& TOOTH ACHE!!!!!!!!!

Not much to report

May 17th, 2008 at 02:59 pm

I still have a tooth ache so I won't be going to the baby shower, nor will I be going to help set up for the Cystic Fibrosis walk. I have been in the bed pretty much all day, but I need to head out to Publix for bread and o.j. I was able to complete my assignments for my marketing class but need to start reading the next two chapters and I just don't feel like it. But I'll see how I am feeling later

Still in pain

May 16th, 2008 at 04:11 pm

No luck at the dentist the only thing he says he sees now is a little swelling, which I think is from the deep cleaning he did when he was trying to give me some relief. He did change my bite that way when I bite down on the other side I feel no pain. Anyhow he wants me to see the periodontist (cha ching) but I have no choice if I want some relief

The saga continues

May 16th, 2008 at 06:34 am

I woke up yesterday with the worst tooth ache, I was dying over here. Anyhow I had cancelled my appointment because I was feeling better earlier in the day, luckily I was able to reach the dentist who called me in an antibiotic. When I asked if he would and gave him the number to Walgreens he says to me why don't you go to Publix it's free. Because I did not have the number he looked it up for me and called it in, when I went to pick it up it was free, saving me a $15 co-pay Smile How nice. I woke up this morning and I am a little sore, but I am feeling better. I did not go into work today because if this flares up again I want to be able to go straight to the dentist, it's hard to leave once you are at work. Seems as though the antibiotic is working, wish I had known before I spent $185 the other day
On a different note, today was payday so I checked my balance and found a nice little bonus which I immediately added to my EF Smile
I paid bills today, paid my cc in which I charged my tuition but I still owe about $100 on it. I use it to accumulate points and since I have been under the weather I have not entered all my transactions, must do that today in order to stay cc debt free. I paid the cable and phone bill added $50 to my challenge and paid the extra $50 that I am no longer adding to my IRA but to the auto loan principal in an effort to have that car atleast half way paid off by the end of the year.

Spend, Spend and Spend

May 13th, 2008 at 07:15 pm

Today I spent a ton of money. First I bought breakfast, then I went to the dentist (thank goodness I had an EF). I have had a tooth ache since Friday and the dentist could not see what was going on, I had a small cavity which he filled and some debris from the last dentist that he was supposed to had cleaned out the last time I was there and I guess he didn't but any note it cost me $185 and because I have not eaten a real meal in about 4 days (soup only ) I treated my mom out to dinner again and that was $25. But my tooth is aching me again Frown then we went to Bealls Outlet I I spent $19 on myself $10 for my mom and $5 for my sister. Hit the gas station and $57 later I am annoyed
I can see why people OD on pain meds my tooth is killing me and I have been taking motrin all day, back to the dentist

Great day

March 18th, 2008 at 07:05 pm

Today was payday and I had a nice little surprise... a 75 cent raise. I wasn't even expecting that, so I have to call the bank in order to up IRA contributions(mental note).
I also paid off one CC, all my bills that are due by the 4th of next month and added $20 to the challenge.
Got my window fixed as well, when the glass was replaced they forgot to reset the motor but on a different note $85 was spent at the dentist. Now he wants to see me in two weekes because after his probing things do not look good so I am trying this mouth rinse, maybe it will hlp

Busy and sick as a dog

February 16th, 2008 at 11:29 pm

I have been so busy with this accounting class that I forgot about everything else.
As you all know this is my third time taking this class Frown but it looks like I just may pass it this time. I got a 100 on both quizzes and 80% on the test in addition to 8 extra credit points. But as far as my planning in health care class goes, I bombed that test I had no idea what was on it; I guess I have been too focused on the accounting.

Anyhow I have not been adding to my challenge, I guess because I have not been blogging like I usually do and that means additional wasteful spending. I don't know what it is but if I am not blogging and making myself accountable I am spending

And this weekend I was hit with the flu. Friday two of my co-workers called out sick and one went home early and by lunch time my throat was so sore and red, by time I got home I was sick as a dog. I had some expired Theraflu and took my chances (I do not recommend this to anyone) but by Saturday morning I was feeling a little better. But low and behold it struck again this time by my chest was included and I was all congested so I got up want to CVS with my windows up and no a/c on, thinking if I sweat enough it may help . This was not a bright idea because by time I got home I felt like I had a hang over. Anyhow I bought everything you can think of for the flu including more Theraflu which is a God's sent because after I made it home, and slept for hours I felt better to go to work. Hopefully by tomorrow I will be back to normal


November 20th, 2007 at 07:12 pm

I never used them but I did today and saved $1.50 so that was added to my challenge.

I have also been doing very well with the dining out this monyh only $15 was spent Smile

but I went to the dentist and that set me back $425 plus I'll have to pay another $425 for my crown Frown This really sucks

Oh dear

September 24th, 2007 at 03:42 pm

Went to th dentist today for a second opinion and of course I was right my dentist screwed up my tooth. Firts the crown was not fully on and the cement that was used was getting into my tooth. $200 later and I am PO'd. Now it is going to cost me another $850 with the new dentist to repair Frown he did suggest that I go back to her and her to correct it but I have been there twice and the problem as not been fixed so I'd rather pay the money that I really don't have and get it taken care of. I did however charge today's service but I am taking the money from my EF to pay it off tomorrow Frown
On a good note, I finished my class project, I have no idea if it was done right or not at this point I don't care but we will see. I also added $25 to my challenge brining my new total to $4238.35
In regards to my car I got a ton of calls so hopefully it will sell by tomorrow

Wow, it has been awhile

September 18th, 2007 at 07:53 pm

What I have learned is that if I am not blogging or reading other blogs about finanaces, I fall back into my old ways and that is wasting money. I have been busy with school (3 classes this semester) and have not had time to catch up on my blogging or finances. I have done a ton of shopping Frown so I guess I have fallen off the wagon. It is time to get back on track and make some serious changes.
I paid bills today and made some deposits to my challenge and IRA but my cc debt has risen to about $900 (I will update the total later) but atleast $700 of that is for school
Anyhow, I just wanted to give every one heads up and let you know I am still alive
Added $53 to the challenge
$205 on cc
$143 towards car (saving a little extra towards extra payments)
$30 EF
$10 misc account
$50 for IRA
$44 on water bill
$64 for Cable
$15 for meds
$20 tithes
$35 dentist (had some swelling)
I am still waiting on a check/deposit from Amazon for a book sold which will go towards my cc/school transactions
and I got an extra $5 to for a survey so I am adding this to the challenge as well

Time to change MD

August 28th, 2007 at 12:51 pm

That’s it; it is time for a new doctor. As every one knows I go in to see the MD every three months because of my abnormal paps. Any how I had a biopsy the other day and the results were in , well the nurse who is very rude called to tell me I needed to make an appoint so I said to her if I am simply making an appointment to come in to be old to make another appointment in three months I can not afford that (that is what happened last time and I was charged $30) Well that was last week, well the doctor called to tell me it is their policy to have the patient to come in , as I was about to say ok let me schedule she then said and besides your insurance doesn’t pay that much anyway. Well I was PO’d, it wasn’t my idea that she sign up an accept BCBS fee schedule. So I am immediately terminating my relationship with that office

Still in pain

August 25th, 2007 at 08:54 pm

Went to the dentist on Thursday because my crown (that was $900) cracked after chewing gum. Any how when I saw the dentist the week before I was told that they have this new machine and they could replace my crown in the office with in an hour and a half. Well I got my crown alright, but with some serious pain for the last 3 days plus a 3 hour stay at the dentist with my mouth wide open.

First of all, I thought they were going to remove the old one, take a mold of my tooth, give me a temp and reschedule me for the permanent one. No they did surgery on my gums and I still don’t know why and placed the new one on (3 hours later) I am positive that I was a ginny pig for this new machine they have…it seems like he was just learning how to use it and now I am so sore because he did some laser surgery on my gums. I had to call them up today to have pain pills and antibiotics called in

You know I wish they had been honest from the start but after they started on my tooth what was I going do
I knew after I paid $20 I was an experiment and replacing my tooth was not out of the kindness of their hearts

Healthy again

June 5th, 2007 at 12:38 pm

Well I checked my pressure (BP) and it was 111/67 which is great. I have been watching my pressure because at one point it was really high. Now the doctor's office just called and told me that all my blood work came back negative Smile

Oh dear

May 31st, 2007 at 01:11 pm

$635 at the dentist today. If it is one thing that I have learned and that is to take care of your teeth. My god, this is so expensive. I did put this on the credit card and plan on paying off (I will pay off) before the next billing cycle. I just did not want to clean out my saving and take funds away from my house fund and besides I will not acrue any interest before then. I still have a ew more things to take care of, inregards to my teeth but I am holding off right now

BP is down

May 19th, 2007 at 08:56 pm

My BP was down Smile 110/60 which I think is low but according to the new numbers for BP this is great. Anyhow, I got on the bike for five minutes yesterday...lol I am so out of shape

Oh yeah I forgot, Cingular called to verify CC because of course they were running into problems processing my $83.

Just lovely

Saw the MD

May 17th, 2007 at 07:43 pm

Saw the doc today and it is official I have high blood pressure and was given BP pills. He wants me to have a series of test for the hot flashes that I am having, and as far the pressure goes he wants me to excercise a little more (being that I don't ) so I will hit the bike at work every day for 10 minutes and will definatley start watching my sodium intake

Thanks to everyone who suggested I see the MD right away you guys were right.

Health Update

May 16th, 2007 at 04:45 pm

just wanted to tell every one thanks, and give you a heads up. I am seeing the doctor tommorrow; my pressure did go down but I am still going because of the slight headaches

Not feeling well

May 15th, 2007 at 02:25 pm

Lately I have not been feeling well, last night I got up to take a shower and could hardly stand up; I felt faint

The nurse at my part time job took my BP which was 145/90, I don't know why and today I have a terrible headache but I have to drag myself to class

I will definately keep an eye on my pressure and make sure to get into the MD next week


May 12th, 2007 at 09:59 pm

I fogot to post about this, my tooth that cost me about $1000 is now loose and of course the dentist can't save it and it will cost me $2040 (minus the $1000 break she gave me ) for a bridge. You have got to be kidding me was all I could think of, why didn't she tell me all this before I spent money I really did not have. I go back on the 31st for a crown and will speak to her then about this $4000 tooth...that just sucks

For girls only

May 8th, 2007 at 08:40 pm

I am 33 and lately at night I am either sweating to death or freezing, could I actually be going through the changes? Is this normal for my age? This is insane, I hate feeling like this


May 1st, 2007 at 05:50 pm

$370 at the dentist today another root canal Frown Also the tooth that I spent over $600 to fix the crown is loose and the dentists states she could not save it...why wasn't I told before I wasted over $600. Now she wants to give me a bridge for $2040+ um I do not think so I'd rather pull and eat on one side, this is just crazy. It will cost me another $300+ once my crown comes in; oh dear oh dear

Seeing the doc

April 25th, 2007 at 08:06 pm

Well I go in tomorrow for my 3 month check up with the doctor wish me luck, lately everything has been ok. Well I am in for a fight tomorrow because the idiots had me scheduled on the 17th as well as the 26th and according to the MD policy they will charge $25 for appoints that are not canclled. We'll see, because I am not paying it and if they insist I will walk out and find another doc. I really like my doctor but her staff is a bunch of idiots


March 27th, 2007 at 05:45 pm

Well went to the dentist and it only (yeah right only) cost me $300. I actually budgeted $330 so I saved $30 and I am adding only $15 to the challenge because I spent the other $15 at the grocery store

New total $1893.25

Well it is still raining

March 26th, 2007 at 03:23 pm

Well I heard from my mechanic and it will cost about $438 to get my a/c fix and I am dropping it off tomorow...it's just to hot in FL with out a/c. Next I have a dentist appointment to have my crown put on, that is another $330 so my little EF will be depleted.

The only good news is that I can pay cash and added $3.56 to my challenge today brining my new total to $1878.25

Big Day at the Dentist

March 12th, 2007 at 02:56 pm

$330 later I am still none done with the dentist, this was only half for my crown. I wil have to pay another $330 in two weeks; of course this came out of my EF no way was I going to put this on a cc. What I can tell you is take care of your teeth because going to the dentist is sooooooooooooooo expensive

Not off to a good start

February 10th, 2007 at 06:46 am

Ok my day is starting off bad. Just woke up(late) so that I can make it to my follow-up eye appointment, well my uncle is parked behind me. So I grab his keyes to move his car and guess what it won't start Frown this is the second appointment I missed darn it. MY mom is not here neither his he so I am stuck.

Pharmacy Trouble

February 6th, 2007 at 06:33 pm

OK I go to the pharmacy to pick up my meds, when I get there I am told it will be a few minutes so I say ok. Well the girl comes back stated my total was $41.99 I say ok because I have a new prescription which was a brand. So I get both meds and am about to leave so I decide to look at the pharmacy slip both meds are generic and I should be charged $15 so I ring the buzzer let the girl know and send everything back now I am at the drive through for at least an half hour. Now the pharmacist comes up and state one of my, meds was too soon to fill I tell her I know but because they filled anyway I was picking up but I do not want if I have to pay full price I can wait. She says we will issue you a refund, another 15 minutes goes by I get a bag with a receipt and my card as well as my prescription. Now I have to go back even though I was not charged and return the medication what a nightmare

Seeing MD

February 5th, 2007 at 11:07 am

Ok I goy a call from the MDs office my paps was positive so now I have to go in for another test, keep your fingers crossed. This has happened before and the test camr back negative. So I am hoping and praying again

Prescription did not change

February 1st, 2007 at 07:55 pm

My prescription for glasses did not change Smile so I get to keep my current glasses for another year at least, that saved me some money. The eye exam itself cost me $99 not too bad and I went back to cheaper contacts Smile every thing worked out today for the best
