And the wisdom tooth is out! 🥳🤩🎊🎉🎵🦷🥂🍾 😮😹🥴🌺✨🌸🌟
After the last three nights of no sleep whatsoever and losing my mind to toothache this past month, I finally made the overdue emergency appointment and bravely faced my fears of the dentist. I usually like dentists because there’s never anything wrong! This time was different and I’d been stalling. So this afternoon, my crazy, badly decayed wisdom tooth got taken out and I have to say, local anaesthetic feels bloody marvellous! For the first time in I don’t know how long, I’m pain free. 🎊 Alleluia! It was all over in 5 mins and was a much worse experience in my head than in reality. I even succeeded in imagining I was swimming in a warm sea during the particularly squeamish bits. Good work Holls! Good work dentist! 💪🏻 🏊♀️ 🌊 🏝 Still, it’s not my favourite pastime and luckily I’ve got great teeth so I won’t be back for some time now woo!!
Today I learnt not to suffer over a long period of time with toothache or pain. Get things sorted and move on. I suffered needlessly, which is sad. I did have some nice early morning dawn chorus moments because of it all though. 😀
I also enjoyed the experience of trying to speak with my funny numb mouth and fat, uncooperative tongue. Speaking and drinking with an anaesthetised half tongue feels really weird!
