I never realized how much pain can come from a tooth. Seen it in movies but always thought is was an exaggeration. It started after eating a cookie of all things. I felt the first pain but still I could deal with it. took some pain killers and I was fine until the night. Why does the pain get worse when I lay down? So weird. That night I found listerine helped the pain go away for maybe 30 minutes. Then pow pain is back again. Well that night I didn’t get much sleep. I was too afraid to go to the dentist with all the horror movies I have seen about dentists. Ooooo Scary… I let this go on for a couple of days more foolishly.
The pain got so bad that I couldn’t even sleep. Now I know all about sleep deprivation. Read articles about it. Seen a reality show in the UK about it called Shattered I believe. Learned a lot from that show surprisingly. I knew I was getting tired, slow to react and fogetting things. Next thing would have been halucinations. Well I had no choice but to call the dentist. That night was painful but more fearful too. I didn’t know what to expect. Yes I haven’t been to the dentist since I was a child. Was glad I couldn’t sleep because I probably would have had a nightmare about teeth. Too make a long story short, (too late), I went in got a root canal and found out the visit wasn’t too bad. That was my first visit. Maybe I’ll write more.
