Yeah. If they were there to help, then they wouldn't have denied your claim.

I just snagged the one ECCC Exclusive Pop! figure that I wanted from the Funko pop up store. Usually I am not fast enough to get one.

Thanks, you guys. I slept about 5 hours last night so the sleep situation is improving, lol.

Insurance Companies definitely are not about helping. What a joke. LOL. Sorry you were denied, Jerry. Do you have an alternative in play?

Alan, which one ECCC Exclusive Pop! figure did you snag?

This one. The shop opened at 9am, and most everything was sold out minutes later.

That is awesome. I can see why it's so popular. Good for you to get one! Did you have a method or was it just luck being able to get it?

I got to the store at 8:55 and just kept hitting refresh over and over and over until the store came up.

Thanks. Not really. I'll just have to pay for the crown work that I need.

Oh, dental stuff...

I am so screwed in this department right now...

I literally have about five teeth that are sensitive to cold and bothering me right now. I know 3/5 definitely need crowns and maybe root canals. It's also possible some may need to be pulled. I know my insurance will cover very little. I keep delaying going because 1) I despise the dentist and 2) I know it's going to cost a ton of money.

I don't understand why dental insurance is so poor in this country. Gum and tooth infections are serious and can kill you (in extreme, thankfully rare cases). It should be under medical but of course it's not and as a result it's so expensive.

That's so true. I need two crowns and my out of pocket is going to be over $1,900.00. My insurance hardly covered anything.

Awful!

I don't even want to think about what my cost will be for five teeth that need one or more things done. Insurance covers needing teeth pulled and a reduced price for dentures but nothing for implants. Insurance covers only 10% for crowns and root canals. That's it.

I just got back from Starbucks. I went via the drive-through. I’ve been feeling awful since those New Zealand attacks. I was just reminded that there are good people in this world. Minnesota Nice it’s not just a nickname without merit. Minnesotans are truly really really nice. This has happened to me so many times I’ve lost count. Anyway I ordered a drink and protein box. I pull up and the person told me that it was no charge, the people in front of me paid my bill. How amazing. Like I said this has happened so many times at the Starbucks and not just Starbucks but other places like McDonald’s, Dairy Queen, Burger King, etc.

What a nice gesture. Every time this happens I wish I knew who paid for me because I would love to repay them. LOL Anyway, there are good people in this world and I was reminded of that today. I don't think it is a coincidence this happened again today either given how I was feeling. Energy is powerful and communicative.
