  • @lund I have a shark steam mop and I love it.

    DH is no longer allowed to make insurance decisions by himself. One of his teeth started hurting this weekend so he informed me that he had dropped his dental insurance during open enrollment because "he didn't want to pay for something he doesn't use." Went to the dentist today and they want to do $6500 worth of work. Ugh!!!!

  • @KariAnn323: Holy moly, that's a lot of money. I would be so irritated he dropped dental...especially because most plans only charge $15-$30 a month. Is it possible to wait to have the work done until he can enroll again?

  • @LuND I have a shark steam mop too, and I like it. I actually got it for free when we bought our vacuum, so that made it even better!

    @dragonfly17 I'm the exact same way. Jeans on Sale for $10, nah, I don't need another pair of jeans. Random ass decorative bowl that looks pretty cool but I have No idea where I'm going to put it. Must purchase.

    @KariAnn323 Omg, I would be livid!! Who just cancels their dental insurance, it's not *that* expensive anyway? Wow. Well, my teeth suck so I won't be canceling mine anytime soon. $6500 is a major hit.

    @KariAnn323 Wowzers  :o I second what pp said about waiting until the next open enrollment if possible. Something else to consider is to look into a dental school in your area. I know there are a lot of programs that will do work at a reduced rate because they have students doing the work. Maybe just for him to get enough done to reduce the pain and then have the rest done after he has insurance again? 

    I'm an insurance companies dream because I am always afraid of "worst case scenarios" but several years ago when I was in college I purchased an extended warranty on a used car I had and that warrently ended up saving me thousands of dollars. Everyone told me not to buy it because they are generally a "waste of money" but I'm SO happy I did and now I always buy/have insurance for everything lol!

  • @KariAnn323 Hopefully Humana works out. If not, try looking into local dental schools. Some of them offer deeply discounted services...you just have to have students watching in on your procedure :)

  • @lulu1180 I still need to finish 'The Crown'! I couldn't get into 'The Man in the High Castle,' which was surprising because I usually love anything WWII related (I've seen 'Band of Brothers' an obscene number of times, and will watch it again).

    I just skyped with DH, and it turns out he has a spring leave the week before my school spring break. Which sucks because that means he probably wouldn't be able to take leave for me to go visit the week I'm off. BUT he said that he was planning on surprising me by trying to come home for his week off (we've never been very good at keeping surprises). It's not a definite but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It would be so amazing just to have him home for a bit!

  • @lulu1180 I can't drink Pinot noir without singing that! 

    Guys I have a question... I figure we talk about so many TMI things here, I can ask. I'm a little itchy in my lady cave, right around the opening. It's not horrible or unbearable but it's itchy. No discharge or smell or anything. I have never had a yeast infection before so I don't know if that's what this is or some other infection? Could it be irritated from shaving cream or something? Is this worth a doctor visit? Ugh. 



    lulu1180wabash15
  • @jsnakehole I was surprised that I enjoyed The Crown as much as I did, it was very well done!  My MIL has mentioned The Man in the High Castle a while ago and I just signed up for Amazon Prime a few weeks ago.  Now that we are caught up on all of our other shows, we decided to start a new one.  
    Also fx YH is able to come see you and fx again that it's in your FW!!

  • @hartmich When I had a yeast infection in the past, it was unbearably itchy and I bought the Monistat OTC which includes a cream for the exterior.  I think I have seen some ladies in the past say they called their PCP and got a prescription that ended it much soon and an OTC med would.  

    If it's shaving related, I typically itch a little within a few days of shaving but it goes away within a couple days.

  • @hartmich I haven't had a yeast infection in 20+ years, but I've had itching like you're describing. Have you switched soaps/body washes? New underwear? Traveled recently?  It sounds mostly like your pH is off a bit, but I'm certainly not an expert. 
  • @hartmich with my most recent yeast infection I did not have any discharge just some itching that would come and go. Actually my biggest symptom was burning for a second at the start of urination. This was because the skin was irritated.  For most women the over the counters work well but I'm allergic to them so I went in and saw a midwife who gave me an Rx for diflucan (a typically one dose pill).  It sounds like it could be a yeast infection. Some women go to the doc the first time to confirm and then do over the counters after that.  GL girl, it sucks when your lady cave itches!

  • @wabash15 @lund @lulu1180 thank you ladies! The itching is mild and on and off so maybe I'll see what happens over the next day or two... and then try something if things don't improve!

  • My Sheltie is getting heart worm treatment on Thursday and I'm super nervous. We rescued her in December knowing she had heart worms. She's been on antibiotics and prednisone for the past month to clear up some lung inflammation before the actual treatment. (BTW @kiwi2628 she did keep the prednisone down after feeding her half a meal and then half a meal with the medicine. She eats too fast I guess) The treatment requires strict bed rest for 30 days. As the worms die, if her heart rate gets high it can cause too many worms to come out of her heart at once and cause an embolism. She won't be able to run around or play fetch or even have a bath. It'll be 30 days of bed/crate and quick potty walks. My worry is that she's super hyper like most Shelties so it'll be hard to keep her calm but I've already talked to the vet and they said they'd give us trazadone to calm her down.

  • @ag90 OMG yes it is so nice. We too have a savings account who's funds are going towards "baby expenses". Thanks to this whole insurance thing, we should be able to start added to it again (we had to stop because DH wasn't getting enough work to really make money and then was unemployed) and we should have a pretty substantial amount by the time its going to be used. We don't really know how soon I'll get pregnant but like you said, it's nice to have. 

    @JJMNO1616 WOW I've never heard of a place offering insurance where you didn't have to pay a premium. You go girl!!! But boo on student loans!
