If anybody reading this is due to visit the dentist STOP READING IMMEDIATELY!!!!
For the last couple of months I have had a slight niggling in one if my back teeth, recently it got slightly worse so I made the DREADED appointment to see the Dentist. First off I have to say that I am TERRIFIED of the Dentist, always have been and am pretty sure now ALWAYS WILL BE......
So Friday morning (after almost cancelling my appointment due to the fact that my tooth had been absolutely fine for the last couple of days) I headed off nervously, but trying to be as brave as possible. Once I was sitting in the chair the sweat started pouring and I even started to shake a bit... obviously my inner self knew what was to come. Anyway the Dentist found some decay inside my wisdom tooth and told me I could either have it filled or taken out. She advised me that if I did have it filled it would probably need doing again in the next couple of years.
SOMEHOW by telling me that it cost the same to remove the tooth, the tooth is not needed anyway and that it would only be the same pain as a filling, she managed to get me to agree to having it pulled.
FLIPPIN HECK... I can't even begin to explain how much I would rather have had a filling, 20 fillings even....... After having to listen to the crunching and cracking of bone, gagging on the horrific amount of blood and feeling like my head was being pulled off, I then had to endure stitches that seemed to take a lifetime to put in. Apparently my tooth had 4 roots instead of 2 and it was also fused to the bone which made it much harder to remove, stupid tooth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was all quite traumatic and I had to sit out in my car for at least 5 minutes crying like a BABY once I had ESCAPED from the dreaded place! Now I have been known to be a BIT of a drama queen and I don't handle being sick or in pain very well, (how I ever birthed 3 babies naturally is beyond even me!!!) but I was seriously in shock. Luckily for me my wonderful mother-in-law was at home looking after the kids and one look at me, red eyes, swollen face, blood smeared on chin she gave me a hug and told me that she would have the kids for the rest of the day. THANK HEAVENS!! Wonderful, wonderful MIL am forever in her debt!!!
So now 3 days on I still can't talk properly and am in pain and having to take antibiotics WHILE BREASTFEEDING......... I don't take anything other than paracetamol if really needed normally while b/feeding so this is the worst part for me, I have checked with everyone and apparently what I am on is okay for babs, but really I would rather not be taking the risk.
I guess the moral of the story is HAVING A WISDOM TOOTH TAKEN OUT IS NOT THE SAME AS HAVING A FILLING!!!! Oh yeah and I am a great big Sukey la la BABY........... I have no idea how I am EVER going to get myself back to the dentist to have stitches removed and if anybody ever tells me that I need a tooth pulling again I am going into hiding.........
Sorry about this moany old post but just had to get it off my chest and also wanted to let my mum and dad know what their poor little girl has had to endure..... can't phone them as can't SPEAK.... Hope that everybody else is having a lot more fun than me this weekend.......X
Your fairy is called Tangle Saturnwand
She is a trouble maker.
She lives at the bottom of tangled gardens and in hedgerows.
She is only seen when the seer holds a four-leafed clover.
She wears tangled dresses of multicoloured petals. She has delicate pale pink wings like a cicada.
