Self Pity

I went to the dentist today for my final visit. He filled my last few cavities and then extracted my wisdom tooth.

I remember saying this before, but what I don’t understand is why I treated it so cavalierly.
“Oh yeah, I’m going to get my wisdom tooth out Tuesday.”
Whoever I said it to would look at me with a horrified face and say “Oh, no! I’m so sorry!”
“Ahh, it’s no big deal,” I pshawed. “It’s not impacted. Just an extraction.”

Just. An. Extraction.

What was I thinking??? I’m in so much pain. Taking antibiotics and pain
killers. Second to the pain is the awfulness of this constant taste of
blood in my mouth.

I’m thankful that I can be here at my mommy’s house though so she can
take care of me. And my sweet husband and sisters and brother have been
taking care of my children. My kids have all comforted me with kisses
as well. So all in all it’s not as bad as it could be.

But, I plan on wallowing anyway as long as I feel I need to.

Can ya blame me?

    Awww!  I am so sorry you feel sick!  I was miserable when I had my wisdom teeth out and i refused to take my pain kilers because I was afraid of them.  Lol… feel better soon!

    Yeah I had all four of mine taken out a couple of years ago-the awful, constant, miserable taste of blood is the worst part I think!  Don’t worry, it’ll be over soon.  I think within four days the pain and blood and all that was gone. 

  9. ah, thank you for the note…I’ve been tossing that thought around in my head for awhile.

  10. I love that picture…it reminds me of my friend Jessica’s little sister Greta when she wants you to do something.

    the best part really is after the taste of the blood leaves your mouth, and the taste of those biodegradable stitches permeates everything you eat for a week or so.also, I award you two (2) eprops for posting that picture of yourself, but I must subtract one (1) for failing to take the photograph at the actual site of the surgery.when do you all get back in town?

  15. I couldn’t imagine having teeth pulled.  You are a brave woman going into it with no concern.  I’m such a wimp.  Glad to hear you are being taken care of by your sweet family!

    It is good that you poo-poohed it beforehand. Better that than fret and fear about it. Ignorance is bliss in these cases. I had mine out a long time ago and I still remember the ordeal vividly. I was a chipmunk for a week!  Glad you have a lot of nurses around you!
