Johanna needs a root canal, and has dental insurance - but it won't cover the $1800 procedure because she's caught in an 18 month "waiting period"

I'm Johanna, a cosplaying, cat-loving geek in the Pacific northwest, and apparently I'm cursed when it comes to dental insurance. 

I need a root canal with all the trimmings, asap. Unfortunately, my dental insurance won't cover a penny of it because there's an 18 month waiting time for endo work. Yes, 18 months is longer than average, but there it is. I didn't say it was *good* insurance*.

I'd try to wait it out, but an abcess is forming and given how painful it's gotten in just seven days, waiting five more months isn't an option. And, oh yeah, if left untreated, the abscess could develop into a life-threatening infection. Lovely.

And, of course, my husband's contract just ended and we only just got on top of everything that had piled up in the meantime and it means we're back to scraping by on just my paycheck. Oof.

So I have to ask for help again. Any contribution is that much less going on to a credit card that charges 18% APR. Thank you!

*Last year, they screwed me for having been on the plan for les than six months. What fun!
