I just called and made the appointment to have my extractions done.
I’m having FOUR teeth yanked from my head.
I must be out of my flippin’ mind!
Now, most of you may think I’m being an amazing wuss.
You’d be right.
It’s not the pain I’m worried about (although, it does concern me a bit). It’s the sedation and/or numbing that would need to be done. See, I’m a SERIOUS control freak. SERIOUS. So much so, that it has impacted other parts of my life that should just be fn fun. I seriously can NOT relinquish control. I just don’t know how.
HOW am I going to handle being sedated?! HOW am I going to handle NOT being sedated?! There’s so much that can happen while sedated. There’s so much that can happen while recovering from that sedation.
It’s been said, that even for the mildest sedation, you HAVE to have a will to live. Great, there’s “feel good”. I DO have a will to live. Even when my life has been the absolute pits, SOMETHING in me has kept me here.
Plus, I’ll have Jacob that weekend. How f’d up am I going to be? How much pain will I be in?
The most significant positive I can come up with?
I won’t be able to eat anything solid for like, YEARS, so I should be quite thin AND have a pretty smile (eventually). :-p
