I can't get a (preliminary) dentists appointment until early August. Meanwhile, the head problem worsens. I am having an ominous dizziness. The tooth is turning dark - but so is the TOP of another tooth, 2-up. The real problem hidden, in the cheek area.

I hope to go to WalMart soon. Does anyone know of any pharmacy or supplement thing which might help in one way or another? I guess the most important thing would be in dealing with infection.

I am up early. Made what I dubbed a, "Sardinian Omelet," with black olives, and more. And drank coffee. I want to see if I can start my main computer, and get my camera programme on it, so I can take some pictures of my chimney, which has been blistering and bubbling plaster, due to a leak in the roof.

Finally, the LL is addressing the leak. But she wants to get before and after pics of the inside, for the owner. This suggests that they want to work on the INSIDE soon.

If this is so, they are going against my specific request, repeated several times: I can deal with the inside looking bad - so do the work on it WHEN I MOVE OUT. All I wanted was the roof leak taken care of. It was I who informed them of the problem, made the request, said it was an emergency, while they dragged their feet. The LL agreed to not have the inside work done presently. And now they seem to be going back on their word. Perhaps, if the owner is requiring this, then I can understand. But this lot is always so contrarian, in keeping with the local custom ass-backwards passive-aggression.

So, I want to take the pics myself, and surprise her with a thumb-drive in her drop-box tomorrow, which will include other fun stuff.

So glad the downstairs people are gone, but, 1 - I am tumbling to the ground as if wounded prey, and, 2 - I dread to think what the NEXT downstairs tenants may be. All of this stress has really been crippling me, stunting my anticipated progress.

From my experience with leaks (I've had two in the past three years), the owners want to take care of them right away. There could possibly be mould, or something like that.

I will say that your LL is way better than UmBitch. I wish she were managing our building.

I get really mad when I think about how things are at work: if something in our office isn't working, we just send a service request. No psychosis; no screaming; no drah-mah - things just get fixed. Not like here, where everyone has to tippytoe around the Queen Psychobaby. (The building's owner won't get rid of her, no matter how bad things get - and firing her would be a relatively easy matter, too.)

Yes, my LL is great, although she has flaws. It also took a long time establishing trust or whatever it was.

She took a long time getting around to the leak. They had repaired the walls around the chimney just before I moved in - and so now they were looking at doing that all over again. However, I told her I would rather let the blistering walls alone until I move out, and instead repair the origin of the leak/s - on the roof. She agreed, but this too more time, arranging it w/ the actual owner.

Well, they went up on the roof the other day, and it turned out that there was zero tar on one side of the chimney. The LL reported this to me w/ a tone of surprise. So, this leads me to think that although they have repaired the inside walls in the past, they possibly never thought enough to go up on the roof - until I prodded them. The reason for this might simply have been cheap penny-wise pound-foolish thinking. The house(s) and neighbourhood are not inspiring - "not worth the effort" or money. To a degree. On the other hand, the LL/company are an asset to the neighbourhood. Better than most.

I think my persistence here has moved them to care more. I have noticed the area improve, and have heard as much from a LL who has a large house down the block.
