So I went to the dentist for a cleaning....

And I found out I had 2 cavities. Ugg. I have NEVER had a cavity in my life. I was scared to death to go get them filled.

1. Well because I did not know what to expect not having ever had one.

2. The needle.

So I went yesterday shaking like a leaf and feeling like I was going to pass out or barf. Well I told them straight up. "If I see the needle I will pass out cold on you"

It was painless more or less. They only had to freeze one tooth and that felt really weird. The most painful part was the $272.50 that I had to pay out of pocket!!

$272.50. And that is with FULL GOVERNMENT INSURANCE!!

I am floored. I have only ever had cleanings and those are covered %100 but $272.50~~WITH INSURANCE!!!

Wow I can not even believe that. And I was so shell shocked because I have never paid anything directly to the dentist. And I was not expecting a $272.50 bill the minute I walked out from getting my fillings done?? So strange to me. $300 is a lot of money.

So no shoes for me for a bit..... Unless they are REALLY cute and I HAVE to have them?

cavities suck. having a root canal because of it sucks even worse. i won't even go into how many cavities i had as a kid (too many) while my brother had none until adulthood (bastard).

Yep. Used to be one could pay $anarmandaleg to have a root canal or $30 to have a tooth pulled. has to sacrafice there soul and savings account to have either one done.
Which is just one of the reasons I hate dentists. lol.
