Dear PA Lady,
Your right, I am not. The lines were drawn last year and I was devistated for a long time. Still makes my heart ache. My friends were the only family I had. I was devistated, angry and eventually went to therapy. I know that noone expected that a "pulled muscle" would turn into this .. this.. bone crumbling madness nearly 4years later. Noone is more shocked than my doctors and I. sheesh! I am glad I found healing well. I am glad I met other chronic pain patients. Its hard, real hard having your body do whatever it wants. Never relenting, never slowing. Never ceasing. Gosh I hope we can get this calicum stuff under control.
Yes! this was so messed up... wouldnt believe it! This guy says "Do you feel better now that you see a therapist?" with an odd look. Like something was funny, that I didnt get. I turned and said "For 5 thousand dollars, Id better." And went back into my conversation.
Ugh! Remind me to never treat anyone like that! Lesson #2,000 learned I have given up on anyone "understanding". You guys do, and a friend in california does. I am greatful. It was lonesome out there!
I keep trying hard to remind myself that its just a moment in time. And still I feel the urge to cry and hide. Such a chicken The teeth themselves were so costly I had to pay in three chunks. Total for teeth alone $4,000.0.. not including extra X rays, various office visits to both men. The surgeon, for the surgical procedure, is using all of what is allowed by insurance this year and another $ 2,000.0 out of pocket. I know they are working hard and doing the best they can. I know there is alot they are taking in to consideration.
The awfull part is that I grew up in extreme poverty so I literally had 20K worth of dental work done over 4yrs time, BEFORE any of this calicum absorption stuff started. Jeeze. Im gonna ask for before and after copies of XRays, I dont think anyone will mind. Maybe ill go plant a tree out back, and mourn the loss of custom shaded porcelin caps. was 800.0 per tooth and I dont even have a thing to show for it. Atleast all the wisdoms and 4 other molers were taken out back then. Little silver lining maybe?
Gosh! Does my back have to sting so much on top of it all? I know I need medicine in there already!!! I dont need my back to remind me every passing MOMENT! Not gonna help the 28th get here any quicker. Jeeze. Ugh
except a spouse or housemate - or maybe even a pet.
I'll take 2 tickets for me and Mr.Bubbles! Atleast the cat knows when to keep quiet.
...Wish we could put mean people in the time out corner.
This turned out to be a whole heck of alot longer than I had planned.... Sorry. Thanks for your responses, makes it feel easier. And hey! One more day down
