today is the next day of my dental journey. for many years i didn’t take care of my teeth, i mean really didn’t take care of them. a lot of the time i didn’t even brush them, flossing was out of the question. i had a dentist i really didn’t like so i rarely went.
the last time i went to that dentist that they left me sitting in the chair for half an hour. my fibro and spine were super painful and all i could see ahead of me was more laying on my back with more waiting. i tried to ex plain but they totally didn’t get it, or maybe they didn’t care? i walked out and they made a huge fuss, followed me out the door and tried to talk to me asking what was wrong. i told them what was wrong was what i told 4 people already with no response. obviously they weren’t trying. the manager kept asking questions and i just said, and i really did say this, go away and leave me alone. that did the trick.
i knew i needed a lot of work done, but i didn’t want it at that office. i found a dentist that i like much much better. i’m already getting to know my dentist. he’s done work on me 5x already. i’m having a crown today and i’m hoping he will put on some permanent crowns now, i need 3. i have so much work to do. 5 cavities. and that’s easy part! i guess this is my punishment for all those years of slacking. i’m brushing now, but i am quite sure i’m not ever going to be flossing. also i have a prescription mouthwash to use to heal the gums. it stings in my mouths when i swish it around. i can’t eat or drink for half an hour after i take it.
i’m enthusiastic about getting all this done. it’s just when it’s an hours before the appointment, i get nervous and tend to have a panic attack. i have had twice this morning. my appointment is at noon, just two hours. i wish these appointments were earlier, so i wouldn’t have to wait so long. i got up at4 am because it was on my mind. i figured, fuck it, and got up.
i finished up a comic i was reading called Monstress. it was a good plot, leaving you wishing for lots more and the art was divine. i’m sure i’ll be reading it again.
i’ll give you a piece of art to reward you for reading this! lol
i hope you are having a good day! tell me about your day!
