My ex (formerly known as ex-Hopeful but we talked about it and we are officially exes to each other) has had a chipped tooth for a while and apparently now it's swollen and it hurts. He lives in South Texas and I told him to cross the border to go to the dentist there (it's cheaper) and he refuses to go because he doesn't trust the dentists in Mexico (I don't understand this).

I'm scared this is gonna get really bad and he's gonna end up with a horrible infection and something is gonna happen to him. He keeps making excuses to not go anywhere. He's stubborn as fuck.

Ugh why are men so stubborn?

Update: The Ex had his tooth pulled and is now taking painkillers. It seems he'll be fine.
