Well....the dentist didn't go as I had planned. As I was talking with the dentist he was telling me the other work that needs to be done (more then what I originally thought) and it turns out that the 3 crowns I had put on in 2005/2006 all need to be replaced. WTF??????? He said that crowns are suppose to last a lot longer and he has no idea why these are already needing replaced. Do you realize how angry I am? I hated that dentist I was going to back then anyway, but this really makes me angry. One time when I was sitting there and they were drilling into what seemed like my brain the dentist and his assistant were talking about the show Six Feet Under. The dentist said that he would never watch that show again because he just couldn't stand the fact that one of the guys was gay. As angry as I was I was not going to say anything since he had a drill in my mouth. But now that I all 3 crowns need to be replace I want to go back and give him a piece of my mind. Gah...I am so upset about this.
In 2000 I got this rash on the palm of my hand and on my feet and after months of going to different doctors I was diagnosed with Lichen Planus. It's not something I talk about a lot because it really doesn't cause me problems, but I am finding that it has caused me more problems then what I thought. I think this is part of the reason I have problems with my teeth now and I wish there was something I could. But this disease tends to get worse when I am under stress and the first sign is a rash on the palm of my hand. Yesterday I noticed that I have a horrible rash on my left hand. It's been a while since the rash has been this bad.
So now I just need to figure out where this stress is coming from and how to handle it better. I think overall I am very happy and very content with where my life is, but I still have pockets of stress and overwhelming sadness. What I hate the most is the fact that these kind of come out of nowhere and there are times when I feel so unprepared to handle it.
Next Tuesday I go see my doctor for a medication check, so maybe we need to talk about this because I am wondering if I need an adjustment on my medication.
