Friday, June 17, 2011FRIDAY! Great friends, Great music at 11:17 AM
Yay its Friday. . .and i am stuck inside nursing my wisdom teeth. f you have wisdom teeth you know that one minute they are fine and the next minute they decide to cause intense pain. Mine are impacted in the worst way and are doing all kinds of crazy things inside my mouth... all 4 of them. Dental insurance is one of those wondrous things i just do not have. I really thought i was never going to get them out. I had applied for medical studies but was denied because i didn't meet the requirements for minimum weight and my teeth were too complicated for small clinics that only offer local anesthetic. Every time i got a quote it was disheartening, i could do one tooth at a time but it already takes all my strength not to lost it during a cleaning , even then it seems like something more pressing comes up just when we have saved enough. Yesterday when the pain flared up again and i asked my friends advice i was sent a little miracle.
How simple the idea and yet i had never considered doing it before, a benefit of course! The amazingly generous and loving folks over at Uncommon grounds, now known as cafe mergot, replied to my post saying they would gladly put on a benefit event for me and i found a couple oral surgeons that have sliding scales too. This Saturday night at uncommon grounds come enjoy some rad local music, henna tattoos and more! check out the details on UNCOMMON GROUNDS/CAFE MERGOT FACEBOOK PAGE! Any excess that is raised i would love to donate to anyone else that needs a little help with medical bills.
It had always been so hard for me to accept a helping hand . I always felt like i had to do things on my own and prove that i was strong. Recently however i went to a psychi open house and Alison Compton was talking about self worth and how we should be more open to receive as much as we give . Our friends do not help us because they think we are weak, they help us because they love us. I have never been so overwhelmed with kindness in my life, it literally brought be to tears. Only in Ogden would someone help a near stranger without hesitation. So here's to Ogden, best little city in the world.
Now get out there and enjoy it! Enjoy it for me too, ill be here on the couch watching power rangers eating applesauce.

i hope the benefit can make a big difference in the cost out-of-pocket for you!!! at least once you get them out, you can eat all the ice cream you want :)
wait! was i supposed to wait until after to eat nothing but icecream?? woops lol
I am so glad that you accepted the help that your loving friends offered. You do deserve to be out of the pain and hell that you are going through. No insurance sucks!! I recently had to have surgery and now the bills are piling up lol. I know that I am kinda far away (Lehi), but if there is anything I can do, please let me know. Hopefully you will be feeling much better real soon, Barb =)
i hate how much medical bills are. i have ovarian surgery in November that i will be paying off for a looong time.
I can relate to your toothache and lack of dental insurance. I hope the benefit goes well and you get those wisdom teeth pulled out soon, especially that impacted one! Take care of yourself the best you could Mikki. Thank you to the folks in Ogden for participating in this benefit. It is very rare indeed to have people who sincerly want to help someone out. Bless you all.
explore, create and have fun
