So, I have a tooth that needs to come out. It EFFING HURTS! Like in a road flare jabbed in the side of my head hurts. OF COURSE, the dentist cannot get me in until the 19th (today is the 11th for you that can’t count). I tel them: IT HURTS! They recommend aspirin. Oh joy, I am eating FOUR acetaminophens at a time. Ain’t working. Tried Orajel… ain’t doin’ it. I have taken to grabbing the tooth and tugging on it — that ACTUALLY seems to work and MAYBE the damned thing will come out. I keep tugging and twisting and rocking. Eff it — when it goes, it HURTS. If you’ve had a bad tooth, you know. >:-o
Why are medical people like that? They seem to be jaded and forget you are in pain. Probably because they are around it all the time. I surely cannot function like this, so we will see what’s gonna happen. I am tempted to take a week off on vacation (yeah, waste it again Marshie) and try and get a RX for Vicodin or something. Yeah, it hurts that much. Any ideas from out there?
All my life, I have had teeth pain. When I was a child, my parents got me braces. OWWW! If you’ve never had the fun of this, think of your mouth burning all the time. Back then, they didn’t glue the damn things to your teeth, they HAMMERED bands on and wired you up. It sucked SHIT. Then headgear and rubber bands to twist your mouth and head around. Later, a retainer. No WONDER I was an asshole from about 10 years old, until, well… NOW. Hmmmmm…. And yes, I have tried Sensodyne and other shit. Ain’t it. I cannot touch my teeth w/ metal, EVER. Ack. Cold stuff, hot stuff, both just light my teeth off and that’s when they’re “good, not all Effed-up , like now. I hate it and really, if I give it much thought, it is damned irritating. No wonder i am the way I am. Grrrrrrrrrr.
BTW, this bad tooth feels much the same. If I could go back, I’d tell my parents NOT to waste the money. I asked why my brother Jim didn’t have to do that and my mom says “He flatly REFUSED.” WTF? How come I couldn’t “flatly refuse”? Parents out there, unless your child has “British teeth” (like Austin Powers) do NOT do this to them…. it’s torture. Of course, in today’s shallow world, people will do it. Is horrible. “Ma child is ‘special’ and deserves the ‘best.'” Idiots!
How come we waste tons of money on dumb research and not on something like figuring out how to replicate what sharks have: the ability to grow new teeth. That sure as Hell would be something worthwhile… Use the stem cells for that dammit.
