Dental Day

First, let me say, the lucky winner of deliciousness from post #50 is my dear friend Sarah.  Thank you to all of you who commented on my post.  It means a lot to me.  To the rest of you...maybe next time.

So, today was my dental day.  Oh how I loathe going to have work done on my teeth.  This is probably directly related to having the worst experience of my life last year at my regular dentist whom I will never see again even if he were the last dentist on the planet.  It was a bad enough experience that I take valium in order to go in.  I'm sure I'm not as bad as some people, but when one suffers from panic attacks just thinking about having to go in?  Yeah, it's bad.

I ate lunch before I went because I knew that eating would be difficult tonight.  I had my regular salad.  I took my valium and was thankful that a friend was able to drive me in so that hubby could stay home with our girls.  When I got there, I figured I'd have a few minutes before being taken back, but nope!  As I was taking my coat off, they called me back.  Since I've been to this office before, the good doc knew that I have a hard time with this stuff.  He 'hit' me three times on the outside of my tooth and once in the roof of my mouth on the inside of my tooth *that's the one that hurt the most!*  My small mouth *albeit a big voice* is difficult for having work done.  The hinge of my jaw was quite sore off and on throughout.  Thankfully, I don't have to go back, but should I have swelling, I'll need to switch antibiotics.  Boo!

After getting home, I felt tired and hungry.  What kind of weird person has some semi-serious work done in there mouth and later has the munchies?  Me.  That's who!  I can't even begin to understand that tonight.  The only exercise I really got in today was to do my fab abs.  It's been about 7 hours since I got numbed, and I am finally not numb any more.  I certainly wouldn't have wanted it any other way!

I'm looking forward to a more normal day tomorrow.  Off to brush my teeth and go to bed.  I'm still very tired.
