I made it through the dental appointment okay. They ended up not doing anything today as I have an abscess and infection that has traveled into my jaw (again) so I am back on antibiotics every 6 hours. I have an appointment on Wednesday to get my teeth cleaned.
When I explained why I did not come back the Doctor said “Why don’t you start with something small like a cleaning while we are waiting for the antibiotics to clear up the infection and it will get you more comfortable with me and my staff here” which I thought was a great idea.
So he is going to check Wednesday to see if he thinks the infection is gone and then I will make an appointment Wednesday for the extraction. I really wanted to save the tooth but to do that I need both a root canal which is almost $900 and a crown which is almost $700. The root canal would be covered (80%) by my work insurance but the crown would not be covered at all.
Since I have 3 other fillings that need to be done as well at about $200 a piece (again 80% covered) and my maximum that they pay a year can not exceed $700 (the covered part), I don’t have much choice but get the tooth pulled. I can’t afford the crown and since half the tooth is missing a root canal without a crown is not recommended.
So I am proud of myself and despite the antibiotics and infection I am feeling good about it all.
On Wednesday last week I applied for a coaching position in another project and I got one step beyond what I normally get (not counting my project) and got sent the pre-interview workbook. Of course I read through the whole thing and panicked again. Everyone told me it was really hard. They weren’t kidding.
I am so unsure of how to fill it out and what they are expecting that I even went so far as asking Cory if he minded me asking my ex-boyfriend for help as he is currently a project manager (higher then a coach) on another project (not the one I am in and not the one I applied for).
I heard back from him a few hours later saying “Well what parts of the workbook are you having issues with”. I replied and have not heard back from him. However it is his birthday today so maybe, hopefully sometime this weekend or Monday he will help me. I just need guidance and did not know who else to ask. I hope he is okay with it (my ex not Cory). I am not sure if it was the right thing to do but he is a pretty level headed guy and we get along at work, granted it’s just “Hi, how ya doing?” type thing… anyways I am rambling, which I do when I am worried.
