My name is Sharee.
I am 27 and I live in New Zealand.
I have bad health, i spend a few weeks to a months worth of time in the hospital each year and in the last 12 months I have almost lost my life twice
Due to my health, I do not work or study and have crippling depression. I however do my best to keep my head above water and stick around for my loved ones. Though as people who have had mental illness know, it's not easy and sometimes you fall.
ALL sad stuff aside, I am generally cheerful, kind, supportive and generous. I do my best to convey my feelings to the people I care for. I can be a bit anti social sometimes BUT when the chips are down, I will always have their back. Always.
I Love Gaia and the people here, feel free to talk to me if you see me around. ESPECIALLY if you want to talk about cats.
Sounds like stress related illness. I've gotten that before where I have gotten so damn stressed about an issue that I just vomit. If the only two cavities that are in need of urgent care, ask your dentist how long it will take for the smaller ones to progress into a bigger issue. it might bide you time instead of having to get them all done at once & foot a big bill in once shot.
They did x-rays right? And yeah, they should have pointed them out sooner. But cavities take a long time to form. So it's not so much about catching them months ago, but they should have pointed them out long, long, long before they discovered that many at a time.
But there has to be something else out there other than that. Sometimes there's independent programs to help people pay for dental procedures. I'd help you look but I'm at a loss at where to start only because you are in NZ. They have programs outside of welfare here in America is what I'm getting at. So I'm wondering if there's something like that in NZ that you haven't been made aware of yet. Just don't stress it darlin' because as you're saying, that stress over the situation is already making you ill. You can only do so much to help the situation, so try not to get too upset. I worry about you & I don't want you to suffer if your health relapses due to stress. I love ya & I'm here for you. heart
Incompetency is what it sounds like. There's got to be some way to make the payments easier though. Or do they have any charity care programs? Sometimes they have them here in America. I don't want you to end up broke because of this new discovery.
So why are they making you wait all this time to find it out now? This should have been caught at the last dental appointment. Do they have any sort of payment plans? I remember back when Matt & I were still dating I needed to get my wisdom teeth yanked. We didn't have the money at the time, so he applied for something called Care Credit, which is a credit card of sorts for medical & dental use. My wisdom teeth were long, long overdue at the point & were causing pain. So with no other payment options at the time, we used that. You just need to find a doctor or dentist that accepts Care Credit. Is there anything like that in NZ? We didn't know about this until doing research after all other options failed. What I also found about about Care Credit is that they also do cover veterinary services. So if heaven forbid my dog was in dire need of any health care that we can't pay up front, we have that as an option too. Although financially things are very different than they were long ago.
