I have a cavity. I was too upset about it to make an appointment THIS WEEK while I was at the dentist. I said I'll have to check my calendar at home and call back. I can almost guarantee that my dentist will be booked anyways. He always is. Most popular guy there. The last time I had a filling done by someone other than him, he had to redo it. Never again He told me that I should do it now since it will be $22 with insurance vs $110 without it and since I have no clue when I'll have dental insurance again, it needs to be done

I called the benefits # to the bank. Voice mail I left a detailed message on why I was calling. Of course I haven't heard back.

I looked on the website of my current health care provider. There's no number to call them. I had to fill out an email form and they'll respond in 24-48 hours.

I also tried to call one of the health care providers I used a few years ago when I was out of work. No phone listed either. I had to fill out the damn form for them to call me.

This is so annoying. I know it's going to be ridiculously expensive an no one is going to cover my pre-existing condition. It was expensive the last time and they wouldn't cover my drugs. If they covered my drugs I wouldn't have to go to the dr all the time

Unfortunately most COBRA plans are designed for a major event and not normal maitenance care. They are ridiculous in price because you are not getting any contribution from an employer.

I'm sort of surprised your school doesnt offer something (even something minor) though. You might want to call them and confirm they dont if you havent already.

The last time I had to find out about COBRA, it was not nearly this expensive. It was double of what I was paying, so the COBRA was $200. The $400 thing is riduculous. For that, I could get the cheap insurance through school and pay for my drugs each month.

I got the info from school on insurance months ago. They offer 3 different health care providers at a really cheap rate, but none of them cover pre-existing conditions.

I think what I'm going to do is just sign up for something just to have in the event of an emergency. I have an appointment this week with my allergist. He'll hook me up with drugs for a few months. After that I'll have to figure out how to get at least the main inhaler that I use twice a day. I can't miss a dose or I feel like crap.

I have to write a journal for the first 3 weeks of class. For the past 2 weeks, I decided to write as it was happening. It's going to be a looooooooong 2 days trying to figure out what the hell we did each night. Thankfully I dated my recipe book each day.

I got a IM from a friend that read:
OK, so if you're about 125 miles away from the epicenter of a magnitude 6.7 quake, is that far enough not to be in serious danger?

Then she signed off and I haven't heard anything from her. I am wondering what brother of hers is in Japan

Remember to use different color ink pens, so it looks like you wrote them on different days .

Everything, including all notes, have to be typed. Typed, dated, day (day 1, day 2, etc) pictures of everything we did each day......all in plastic sleeves in a 3 inch 3 ring binder in either white or blue since our school colors are white and blue.

I'm going to be up all night
