Sometimes I wish I could use the ignore- or mute option in Real life. I tried to ignore a tooth-ache all weekend, it started Friday night and slightly got worse. The pills I take for the pain in my elbow also helped to ease the tooth-ache a bit. Anyway, Mondaymorning I woke up with the feeling as if my heart was beating IN my tooth. Not good!
Long story short: I had to go to an emergency Dental Practice, since my dentist is on a vacation, and they diagnosted a huge infection in my tooth (I got some compliments about the general state of my teeth, nothing was wrong..no cavities and no broken fillings – so the infection was a case of bad luck) and they scheduled me for a Root Canal Treatment the same afternoon. It was painful, awful, stressful and worse than I ever imagined something like this would be.
I spent the rest of the day and evening in bed, with more pills – the afterpain of the treatment is supposed to get less in a couple of days – and I am feeling very sorry for myself and cannot bring myself up to go sit at my desk and be inworld…
So, here is a pretty picture to brighten up myself!
