I Hate This Crap

For the past week I have had a crown working loose on one of my molars. I made a mental note to call the dentist to get it reset.

Last weekend I dove in the quarry and when I hit cold water the darn thing hurt a bit.

Monday and Tuesday I felt like crap. I was tired and I had a headache. I even came home early Tuesday and slept 4 hours in the afternoon but was curious because I didn’t have a fever.

Today I went to the dentist to get the crown re-cemented and I found out it was fine.

I have the early stages of an abscess and I am lucky I suppose. He said that it would only get worse and become one of those situations people talk about when they have an abscess.

So Thursday…I have my first root canal. Joy.

PS…I hear there are pictures on the Internets of Mic sleeping in the yard on a mattress.

Root canal - ick, I had one of those once, not nice at all! Hope it goes OK. Don't watch Little Shop of Horrors :-)

I live in constant fear of 2 things...1)a root canal and 2)getting my wisdom teeth removed. I don't like the dentist!!!!

I am not a fan of dental work at all. Or going to the doctor. I have done both this week. Pacing the floor now in dread.

I am told a gas buzz is a great one for sure. Dentist around here don't use it. I pleaded yesterday for any relief he could spare at the procedure.
