I'd like to subtitile this- Viable reason to committ suicide
I spent the weekend in agony...let me back up a little. I went to the dentist last Thurs. because I was having tooth pain. Upon examination the dentist declared that the tooth was cracked to the root beyond repair and they would have to take it out. Como say what? So anyway it hurt like hell and they sent me home with explicit instructions to not spit, suck anything, or eat anything harder than mush, and a prescription for 12 lorcet tablets.
Fast forward to Sat. afternoon and the pain gets WORSE and I am out of pain medicine. By Sat. evening I am writhing in pain on the couch, and nothing, and I do mean nothing, is helping. I called my mom and she came over and brought Eugenol (Clove oil) and cotton balls. By this point I was ready to throw myself out a window. Let me just describe the pain. It starts in your mouth, throbbing, and pulsing, radiating towards your jaw and neck, up to your ear and underneath your eye socket. I could literally have clawed my face apart it hurt that bad.
My mom called the dental answering service and threatened to hurt them if they didn't call the dentist A.S.AP. They called back and asked what the pain felt like. I said like birthing pains, but in my face, and could you please just read my mind because this talking thing is not cool. She says..." Ohhhhh, you have DRY SOCKET." Nooooooooooooooooooo F%&*#*@&^@!!!! SO they called in another pain prescription and some antibiotics just in case. All I can do now is wait and try not to over medicate which is pretty damn tempting to be honest.
To bring this home for you I drew an illustration for your entertainment and enjoyment. Obviously it is not to scale and proportions are not accurate as I am nowhere near being that skinny, but I figure I'm in enough pain without adding insult to injury so I drew myself skinny. It's my pity party and I'll do what I want to....
I read that dry socket can last like 2 weeks in some cases. Please pray that I am NOT one of those cases. Disneyworld won't be the happiest place on earth if I have to be taking painkillers...on second thought....
