Out of My Mind

As much as I hate the way this song portrays people with mental health issues.. sometimes it actually describes how I feel.

Dental Care

I haven't been around much for a variety of reasons.

TennCare is trying to cause bullshit with Medicare.. and I'm in the middle. 

Also, my wisdom teeth are coming in and are infected and incredibly painful.

I spent Tuesday from 5 am to 5 pm at a walk in dental clinic where I was not seen due to their xray machine not working.  I spent Wednesday from 7-10 trying to get in (their power went out during my appointment) and between 12-2 at my lapband doctor. Then 2-5 back at the dentist, where I was told they are impacted and I need to see an oral surgeon.

Cost? Any where from 400$-1000$ per tooth, not including anesthesia or follow up care.

Neither TennCare, nor Medicare provide ANY dental, vision or hearing benefits. Period.

So.. I'm fucked.

I'm out of ideas unfortunately.

Also, my lapband is now again 100% empty and I still cant eat more than water most times, and half the time not even that. The doctor is convinced its not my band causing these problems.. I disagree. So I'm now scheduled for gall bladder testing at the ass crack of dawn on Wednesday, which I'm sure will be normal.

I'll update when I'm not ready to die from pain.

Marijuana in Tennesse

Marijuana is a plant. A good one at that.
Its the only 'drug' I've found that alleviates ALL of my symptoms. Period.
Do I smoke it? No, for two main reasons:
1. Its impossible to find, I don't know anyone here and I suck at making new friends (hello depersonalization) so that leaves me high and dry.
2. Its illegal here in Tennessee.

I used to think anyone that smoked was a dirty hippie, belonged in jail and deserved to have their lives ruined by a criminal record.

My life changed in August 2010.  

I can't say much more on that, except that if you agree, contact your local legislators, and TELL THEM!
I do, every week or so.

Tennessee ALMOST passed legal medical cannabis, but withdrew the bill in Mid 2012.
Shame on you Tennessee.
