First of all I had to go to both the ortho and the dentist today. Ortho appointment was at 12:15 and Dentist was at 1. I was really stupid for setting them so close but oh well. Ortho is really fast. Before going to the ortho I needed to drop something off at the courthouse. No problem right? I always leave in plenty of time. Not today. I only live 10 miles from the courthouse. I left at 11:30. I only had to drive there and stick it in a box on the outside of the courthouse which is like a mailbox. Didnt even have to get out of my car. Wouldnt you know I got stuck behind a train getting there! Then when I got to the courthouse I got to the box but the road right past the courthouse I needed to take was closed to traffic. Oh well, I could drive through the parking lot. No...there was a car parked in the exit on the other side with their blinkers on blocking the exit! Ok...so I go to drive down another lane in the parking lot to go out another street...No that street was closed due to construction too! Good heavens above! Ok...I see a cop headed towards the parked car with the blinkers so I turn around and head back that way thinking he is gonna get her to move. No such luck. He makes me and some other cars turn around and go back out to the closed street and move cones so we can drive up the closed street! UGH! I could have done that ten minutes earlier! I was so peeved. It was now 12:10 and I have 5 minutes to get to my appointment and there was no way in hades I was going to make it. Thankfully luck was on my side and I only was 4 minutes late. Then I got to my dentists office. Or should I say the tortue chamber. They decided to do all the caveties on my left side today. At least 5 or 6. I take an extreme amount of numbing medicine and they have to use a different type on my teeth too. It isnt just the regular shot into the gum...though they use that too. They use this weird shot thing that they inject into the tooth itself underneath the gum line. It hurts like a mother. It also tastes extremely nasty. What really upset me was I said when they first shot me in the first tooth with that awful shot was "owww owww owww" and I said it about as loudly and you would say it on a phone. I wasnt yelling at all. I was definitely using a quiet normal voice. And they told me...Use your inside voice! Hello...You are shoot big*** needles in my mouth! You are lucky I dont slug you...lol. From then on, I sat quietly gripping my purse no matter what hurt and just squeezed my eyes tight shut as I cried when things hurt. Tears where running down my face. Thats how they knew I still wasnt numb. I told them...you said for me not to talk. My mouth hasnt stopped hurting since I got home. My jaw is so sore. My teeth hurt worse than if they had been pulled. I dont think its worth it to get cavititiesfilled. I think I would rather get them pulled and have false teeth put in. Then its only one time I am numbed like this per tooth side, not numbing like this every time they decide I have a cavity. Ugh. I have to go back in two weeks for more work..I so dont want to.
