UGH. This past week my mouth (upper right to be exact) started hurting really bad. So bad that I took 8 ibuprofens on Thursday. A coworker convinced me to go to the Dentist and by Friday morning I found myself sitting in the Dentist chair with my mouth wide open. You see, it’s been an embarrassing 5+ years since I have been in that chair. I don’t know why I put it off for so long. It’s not like I wasn’t PAYING FOR IT EVERY MONTH or anything (insurance). OK, so the pain. Apparently I have some fillings that desperately need replacing along with some tooth decay and a possible infection. I also got the “YOU MUST FLOSS” lecture. As some of you many know, I used to smoke cigarettes on a very regular basis prior to Hunter being born. The Dentist happily showed me all of the damage I did to my teeth because of smoking. EWE. Since this was only a “find out why you are in excruciating pain” visit, I assumed I would be going back this coming Tuesday to get this all fixed. Um, no. OCTOBER 6th is the next available appointment. WTF – I cannot live with this for an ENTIRE month. I can’t sleep because my mouth is constantly in this dull, aching (excruciating) pain. Seriously last night, had I been able to, I would have pulled my own teeth out. They gave me pain meds but I can’t necessarily take them AND watch my super energetic toddler at the same time. UGH.
Thanks for reading my rant. I will be calling the Dentist first thing Tuesday morning. Might even cry for dramatic effect. I will do whatever I can to get this fixred ASAP.
