I went to the dentist today. It is now 3:00pm in the afternoon on the East Coast. It has been 5 hours since I left the dentist’s office and the novocaine is finally starting to wear off. Now, they say, ‘take some ibuprofen before the numbness wears off for the pain that you’ll feel’. That’s all well and good but I couldn’t take it before because well, I was numb. NUMB. Cannot feel. End up with water all down my front. Take a pill? Sure. Let me choke on it!
And guess what? I have to do this 3 more times in the next month and a half. Yay!
The pain is showing up as they said. Lucky me. I’m also starving. Let me say that again. STARVING!
When I left the dentist’s office this morning, this is how I felt:
I’m going back to lay down.
