Red, fucking red

I’m screaming but the words don’t come out…..

Nope not a dream, it was me in a dental chair yesterday. I’ve had problems with a capped tooth since 2014. I was told the tooth next to it needed a root canal. 

I tell the hygienist that I have some tgrobbibg on my right side, so she takes xrays and starts to clean my teeth. Holy pain. I start to cry then mentally call red. Sadly the dentist has no idea that means stop and her intruments are in my mouth, so I started to laugh.

I survive the most painful cleaning ever for the dentist to come in, look at the xray and ask how I’m not screaming in pain. Oh silly dentist, I’m a masochist, that’s how. 

Turns out the root of the capped tooth is broken and infected to the bone. So tomorrow they will take the tooth. I’m not even worried about the extraction. What I am? Pissed!

They put me on into biotic that killed my appetite, made me nauseous and I can go to hot yoga. My weekend plans are now destroyed. I won’t be doing much of anything since I’ll be sick from the meds, in pain and missing a damn tooth until the bridge is made.

I am lucky that it happened close to the weekend so work won’t be too affected. I’ll work from home friday. Also the bridge won’t be covered by insurance, but I do have the cash to pay for it. So life could be worse.

I just wish that I wasn’t such a jerk when it comes to pain. I just get used to it until it can’t be ignored. Oh and next time I know demand the dentist come in prior to the cleaning!!!
