Went to the dentist this morning, and was absolutely terrified. I haven't been to the dentist once since I was 6 or 7 and I was sedated because I was so scared. Valerie recommended her office, and so I went. See, I haven't been to any doctor in ages because I don't have insurance. And I felt so shitty, when the receptionist was chipper and sweet, till she found out I didn't have insurance, and then she was the total opposite. Anywho, when i was called I went to the back and the assistant was great. Then Dr. Muller came in and was funny and nice. Very laid back. Said his silly dentist jokes, counted my teeth, told me what I needed done, and filled out my physical sheet. THAT WAS IT! No Drills. No Mean disappointed expressions on his face. No lashings about how bad my teeth were ( which by the way 3 cavities. not bad for someone who hasn't been seen in over 15 years). He said as soon as I get insurance though he wants me to come in and get fillings, and a cleaning. He also said he could fix my snaggle tooth. And he complimented me on my white teeth. WHY DOES EVERYONE DO THAT? One of the 1st things people tell me is "wow you have really white teeth". Are they really that white? Bc I have seen whiter ones ( and straighter ones).LOL, WHATS YOUR OPINION ON THAT? SHOULD I? i really want to, but some people said thats just me, and I have had it for so long now that it would take away me. But fuck that, I want a pretty smile. But I'd have to get braces. And at 23, that just isn't cute anymore.

So, I recommend Grove Ave dentistry.


So I'm a little late

My New Years Declaration:

- Kick ass in Nursing School, pick a specialty.
- Lose 15 lbs by my birthday
- START learning Tagalog
- Not smoke another cig' again & limit drinking
- Eat less meat, and try new foods
- Be nicer to nelson
- Learn to manage stress

Most of those are already being started but I feel more motivated to do more this year. I am not going to be one of those people who overwhelms themselves anymore. I am not going to take Nelson for granted anymore; and I wont take my health for granted anymore.

I almost didn't think I would be able to pursue Nursing anymore, so now I want to work harder. So next year, I will be graduated and not so stressed out; living in Guam, and finally having family close by.

My dear friend Heather set this up for Nelson. Thank you so much honey, your amazing and thanks everyone for being so concerned for him.

with a sudden case of gall-pancreatitis - put nelson in the hospital in urgent need for surgery. leaving nelson and connie in financial hardships as they are undertaking an insurance lapse, giving them one more month to wait to be covered. and with all the economic struggle we are all going through right now, any little bit does help.
thank you!

It funny that up until now in my adult life, I have never been late on a single payment. Now we are a statistic. We are now another number of the many americans who are overwhelmed by costly medical expenses as well as our monthly regular bills. This is just fantastic.

So 2009 hasn't started so great. Tuesday, Dec.30, I got a call from Nelson saying he was feeling really sick and in a lot of pain so when as soon as i got off work, I took him to Patient First. After they checked him out, they suggested we go to the emergency room. After going to MCV and getting shit from some rude registration lady, I took him to St. Mary's, where we found out that she had gall-pancreatitis. i wont get into details but it was pretty bad. His liver and pancreas were failing and he needed surgery asap. So we rang in the New Years in the hospital, and got surgery the following day. He was out by Sunday, but he is still in a lot of pain and still recovering from surgery. I highly recommend St. Mary's if you live in the Richmond area. I have always hated MCV because of they way my mother was cared for there. I am also a little peeved about how one of his friends reacted to the news that Nelson was in the hospital. The friend was having a party new years eve that we were supposed to attend and we could not make it obviously because Nelson was so sick that he had to be hospitalized for almost a week. So I texted his friend saying "we cant make the party, nelson is in the hospital and needs surgery asap." You would think the friend would be alarmed by this news and wonder if he is ok. Which is how everyone else we knew reacted. But no, this supposed friend just replied, " WORD, cool".
WORD, COOL??? Are you serious? What a good friend. Fuck that, I'm sorry, but it hurt.

On a good note, a lot of people were supportive and helped me a lot with Nelson, so for them, thank you. It meant the world to me. And even though i just started working at World of Mirth, the girls have been amazing and understanding and i love them to pieces. And I got to talk to Nelsons dad for the 1st time ever in the 8 years I've known Nelson.

More later, thanks for reading
