I think I have a cavity or something.
It's been there a while actually. The tooth began its betrayal by getting more and more sensitive to things like hot and cold and toothbrushing. Now there is actual pain. BASTARD TOOTH WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BEHAVE LIKE ALL THE OTHERS??
I have no dental insurance. A cleaning/check-up alone is like $200.00 or more. And then add the cost of whatever they have to do to fix the rogue tooth. That is money I do not have, which means I will have to put it on a credit card, which--on top of several other unforeseen expenses recently--means that I AM NEVER GOING TO HAVE THE FINANCIAL MEANS TO MOVE FAR AWAY FROM HERE.
This makes me more depressed than I can articulate in words.
Sure I suppose I can always be my own dentist. The pliers and copious amount of alcohol are much cheaper than an actual dentist.
Speaking of medical procedures for which I do not have money, I may need to scrape some money together for the cat scan my doctor wants me to get....
A couple weeks ago, I was in the shower and all of a sudden thought that the house was shaking. I nearly ran outside with naught but a towel until I opened the shower door and saw Lil Sis's bottles of perfume lined up on the counter.
In an earthquake, liquids in bottles will generally move about. Not sit perfectly still.
The earthquake was in my head.
That realization did not make it go away. It actually got worse about 2 seconds later, and I had to sit down in the shower for the next ten minutes because it felt like I was on a boat during a hurricane and I couldn't stand up. Since then, I have been on my own private sailing trip. The vertigo never goes away now. Some days it gets really bad and I can't do anything except lie down and pop Dramamine to lessen the motion sickness.
Like today at work, for example. I fell off my chair this morning. I feel like Liza Minelli in Arrested Development.
