Today's Youth

I know I titled this "Today's Youth" but really what I am about to write about is not just directed towards youth. I seen grown adults doing it.

I personally find it very disturbing when I see a teenager, and adults as well, post something on Facebook about "hating their life" or "FML" or just going on about how much their life sucks. Hello, YOUR life is exactly that. YOUR life, and it is what you make of it. Nobody is making you make the stupid decisions that you are apparently making. You are making them. Only YOU can change that. If you are 16 and pregnant, YOU are the one that laid down and willing played an adult game. If you are 18 and have a child and jump from man to man, and always talk about getting high, and then wonder why you are unhappy in love, that is something that only you can change. Keep your fucking legs closed, keep that joint out of your mouth, stop posting about it on Facebook, especially if you don't want your child being taken away, and worry about yourself and your child before you worry about trying to make a man happy, or him making you happy.
We are dealt crappy hands at time, and there is nothing that we can do about that other than try to make the very best of it.
I learned a long time ago that you have to live without regrets because how can you regret something that made you smile at the time. You can not dwell on the negative all the time. Face it. Put your big girl panties on and deal with it.

Teeth, they damn sure can be expensive!

When I was a small child, the first trip to the dentist that I can remember was a horrible time for me. To this day I can remember it, and feel the pain as if it were taking place this very moment. I got 8 fillings and 4 caps and not once time did they dentist numb my mouth. They would not let my mom go in the treatment room with me, and when she could hear me screaming out in such pain and demanded to know what the hell was going on, they informed her that doctor was just cleaning my  teeth...Well, for a couple of years I would not let my mom take me back to the dentist. I mean, I guess she could have since she was my mom and I was just a little kid, but you get my point. Also, some years later that asshole dentist killed himself because he was being sued for the millionth time because of the kind of treatment he was giving to his patients. Hmm.
My mom found a pediatric dentist and she started taking me there. It was a husband and wife practice and I absolutely LOVED it. I still remember their name and I have not been there in over 20 years. Yeah, seriously 20 years, but after my first visit to them I would literally beg my mom to take me to the dentist, and somehow I came to LOVE going to the dentist. Even as I got older and I knew that I would be having to get a filling or something, I still loved going.
Fast Forward to post teeth started going bad. I had no insurance...blah blah blah...I ended up having to have 2 crowns done at one time on the top two front teeth, and now, 5 years later I am needing more dental work done....and this time I am not loving the idea of going to the dentist. lol.
