@jfruh It's like that in Canada too! My provincially provided health insurance (I pay $20/month, based on my income) doesn't cover any dental at all. My work provides "extra" insurance benefits, so that's how my dental, massage, physio, prescriptions, etc is covered. I used to work in retail and didn't have any extra insurance, so I didn't go to the dentist very often. On the plus side, I was making such a small amount, that I qualified for prescription coverage from the government!
@missvancity Also, my insurance will only pay for a cleaning every nine months, so my tricky dentist tried to get me to come in for scaling every six months. My insurance won't pay for it, so I said no.
I think my dentist charges about $125ish, and my insurance covers 85%. I see him ever so briefly, when he comes in to poke around, but mostly it's the hygienist. And I think there's some rule that you are not allowed to work in people's mouths if you don't agree to shame them about flossing. I FUCKING FLOSS, OKAY? Just because I make an effort to not make myself bleed all over the place doesn't mean I don't have good dental hygiene!
My favourite thing about being in my 30s has been letting go of any life checklists. I really enjoy my life, so who cares if I suck at romantic relationships and don't want children? The worst thing has been my stupid back getting progressively worse, rather than quickly recovering from whatever I do to it :(
Wow, it guessed $-72,883 for me. So now I'm feeling pretty good about having $435!
@EM Similarly, Prince George is Northern BC, but it's really only half way up there. Not a lot of people go to Fort St. John.
@EM Ottawa is Eastern Ontario usually (not close to the border at all). North Bay is sort of the start of Northern Ontario. If you look on a map, all the cities in "Northern Ontario" are only about half way up. But there's pretty much nothing in the top half of Ontario.
@amyfrances Ooh, what a wonderful idea! My lottery idea is to open a fluff 'n' fold that does hang drying!
I hate when the site forces you to use their own hint questions. Especially since mother's maiden name is a pretty common one, and my mother never changed her name. REAL SECURE, JERKS.
@honey cowl The only time I've had problems is sometimes I get work documents in pdfs, and try to read them on my Kobo, and adjusting the size of the font is basically impossible. Library books from Overdrive work just fine though!
