I was indulging in my mini twix yesterday was my tooth zinged in pain. Not good. Ever since anything set’s it off. Hot, cold, sweet, cold air, room temperature water. Not a great sign. Got a dentist appt on Monday. Just hoping it’s a crown and not a root canal. Had my second root canal last month and it sucked way worse then my first one, don’t know why. Tooth placement maybe. Hurt my wallet too. $1200+ with dental insurance. Fuck me, I really don’t want to do this all again so soon. But if you leave dental work it only gets worse. So gonna suck it up and go and take the emotional and financial hit. I am so tired of going to the dentist. And I really like my dentist. That’s why I go to OC still instead of finding one in San Diego. Hard to find a dentist you can trust. Anywho, send good vibes to my wallet and mouth.
But I would not be so fortunate, as today was the day. I am not trying to say I don’t have a lot of life to live or that I don’t have any good ‘firsts’ left in my life. It’s just that I feel like I have experienced the majority of my good firsts already and today was not a great one. My head hurts and I am still numb. It wasn’t so bad though and didn’t take long (less then an hour). I put in my airpods and pushed my brain to a different place. That being said, it was by no means pleasant or an experience I would like to repeat. I am super hungry but don’t dare eat for fear of chewing the right side of my mouth to shreds. Also, I think it would all dribble out of my mouth. My right lower side always needs more numbing so it takes forever to wear off. I am going to attempt water soon. Once I am not numb I am switching to water and wine as my liquid diet. Dental work man. I am grateful it’s available (I have more filling then tooth), but it is expensive and tiring.
I bought a caramel candy flavor taste testing sampler from Trader Joe’s yesterday. HAHAHAHA that was stupid. I can’t eat it until I get my crown permanently cemented and now it’s taunting me from the cabinet. Dang you caramels! hahaha
