I'm having a tough day today.
It's been a rough week leading up to today, but I'm finally breaking down.
Everything with my ex and his illness, having to run out and pick up the dog. Now the dog is struggling to settle in. Mickey is snapping at the other dogs. I get they have to settle out a pecking order, but the stress of it all is starting to overwhelm me. Mostly because of the stress it's causing Hubby.
Anyhow, last night my tooth broke. I thought there was a problem with the filling, and was going to get it fixed after our holiday. It had me wondering about it for a few weeks, so I figured no biggie it can wait.
I guess not.
But not dentist here can see me for at least 3 weeks. It hurts. I'm scared to eat. The entire side of the tooth is gone, and there is no longer anything holding the filling in.
Besides, even if they could see me, I can't afford it. I already dipped into my savings to go and get my dog this weekend. I don't even have enough left to pay for dental work. That was my savings for the Alaska trip. Now with having Mickey here, I need to get him vaccinated again - about $150. I also need to pay for a kennel for him to stay while we're away - another $400 at least. More I'm thinking.
I don't have any benefits from work, so my dental is out of pocket.
My head is spinning today. I don't know if I can stop crying. I need to take the dogs for another walk today. Actually, I need to train for the upcoming half marathons.
How am I going to do that with dental pain?
I think I'm just going to crawl back into bed and cry the day away. Maybe find the strength to fight again tomorrow.
