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

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 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
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.
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 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
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
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 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
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
but I went to the dentist and that set me back $425 plus I'll have to pay another $425 for my crown This really sucks
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 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
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
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 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)
$10 misc account
$50 for IRA
$44 on water bill
$64 for Cable
$15 for meds
$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
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
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
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
$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
My BP was down 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.
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.
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
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
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
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
$370 at the dentist today another root canal 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
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
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 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
$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
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 this is the second appointment I missed darn it. MY mom is not here neither his he so I am stuck.
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
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
My prescription for glasses did not change 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 every thing worked out today for the best
Went to the doctor's today for my 3 month check up anyhow no one was there. so I waited about 20 minutes incase the doc had an emergency but now one showed. So I am came home and called the office and the girl answers to tell me that my appointment was at the other office in two cities away in which I have never gone to (you would think they would question that) then she says to me oh that is why I can not find your chart. Then I said to her I hope i will not be charged the $25 fee for not showing, she had the nerve to place me on hold to check I thought it should have been an immediate no. I am just upset you would think I would get a break on my next visit but noooooo I still have to pay my copay
two months later and the doctor's office finally cashed my check. My...i wonder why it took them so long. I was going crazy trying to keep my check book balance. next time I am paying cash
I check the bank an dmy $10 check to the MD's office still has not cleared. It's been over 45 days, how long will they have to cash this check before the bank will not accept. I know that business checks are between 90-180 days but a personal check I am not sure of. This is so annoying. I will be calling them as well.
