i have issues.

Issue #1
So, I need two root canals. I go to see this specialist today, and the quote i get is $2500.
With minimal sedation. (5mg Valium? I don't fucking think so ... i take twice that just to take the edge off going out in public!)

They don't want to do anymore sedation than that, because "That's just not going to help you better deal with dental fear and pain in the future." I don't think that they understand that i have no intention of dealing with pain. They make drugs for that, and if i don't get them, i will let these teeth fall out of my face before i go through this without anesthesia.

As for the money ... i'm going to see another dentist for a second opinion. I know root canals are expensive, but that's exorbitant.

Issue #2
I've got to do something about this horrible tattoo on my shoulder. I'm tired of dressing to cover it. There was a dress I wanted to wear to my christmas party. It's slinky, blue velvet, a pretty party dress. But it has thin straps and a low back. No coverage. I tried all my jackets with it, and they all cover up everything that makes the dress pretty. Also, i don't like the awkwardness of having to wear a jacket all night.

This may even have to come before the geisha tattoo, as it's interfering with my life. Problem is, i've never had a good idea for a cover up. I just don't know.

Gotta find something, i guess.
