Well, this is a little rant that I wrote a few nights ago, while waiting for my mouth to feel better. I never ended up finishing it, so I didn’t post it. In retrospect it makes me laugh. My intention was to write more than just about my tooth, but I never got that far:)
Two in the morning. Yup, that’s right, I am currently blogging at 2 in the morning. For those of you who know me, you know that the act of me blogging at 2 a.m. or really the act of me doing anything other than sleeping at 2 a.m. is beyond absurd. I’m a sleeper. In fact, I’m one of those who generally falls asleep around 10, unless I am actively doing something. By active, I mean up and about active. If I put in a movie then there’s a possibility I’m out as early as 9. It’s kind of sad really, but I’ve learned to accepted the fact that I have the sleeping habits of someone twice, possibly three times my age.
So, you are probably thinking what could possibly be worth blogging about at 2 in the morning? Well, to be honest, nothing! However, for the last three days I have gotten nearly no sleep due to a little issue with my wisdom tooth. I’ve gone from being nearly narcoleptic to an insomniac in a span of three days So, while I wait another two hours until I can take more pain killer, I’ve decided to blog. About what? Not sure, so I’m going to start with this:
I hate my wisdom teeth! They have NEVER given me trouble until I was pregnant, and even now it’s just one of them. I never thought a tooth could cause so much trouble, but let me tell you it has. I am talking pain like I have never felt before! (Yes, I know, I’m going to be experiencing child birth in three months, which I am sure will replace my wisdom tooth on my list of things that have caused me immense pain, but for now, this has probably been the worst pain yet.) Who would have known? It’s a tooth for crying out loud! This is pretty much how my day has gone: Crazy pain, lots of salt water, antibiotic every 8 hours, pain killer every 4 (approved by doctor, so it’s baby friendly.) Unfortunately for me the pain killer only works for an hour and that is not an exaggeration. So far, I’ve used that hour to sleep. I’m not sure what I’ll do for the remainder of the weekend, because at some point I’m going to need that hour to do something constructive like school work. Right now my mouth is giving me some weird, unexpected reprieve and is only causing me slight pain. I ate a popsicle, which for the time being has helped. I am hoping that by the grace of God, he takes pity on me, and magically makes the antibiotic kick in. If not, I’m hoping my dentist (who I am begging to see me tomorrow) can somehow get me set up for an emergency extraction tomorrow, so that I don’t end up in the looney bin.
Enough about my tooth…
