I'm still alive!

sorry for the lack of posts, but I had a root canal yesterday, and have been in quite a bit of pain since. I know root canals are no big deal for some people, but ANY kind of picking/digging at my teeth causes really bad pain for me. I've never had issues with my teeth, minus having my wisdom teeth removed, so any kind of trauma is pretty extreme for these pearly whites.

the procedure itself was okay - I made sure to pay extra for nitrous so I could be out of it. I was pretty loopy during the procedure, but I could still feel the pulling and tugging of my infected nerves. the soreness and throbbing afterward was pretty unbearable, but luckily, I've got a nice dose of Vicodin by my side.

anyway, just wanted to let everyone know that I'm still here and planning on posting pretty frequently... didn't want you guys to think you got rid of me! :)

hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!


  1. Yikes, that does sound painful! I have never had much work done on my teeth either, other than a couple cavities when I was little - I never even had to have my wisdom teeth out.
    Feel better soon!

  2. Ouch! I used to work in a dental office. You're not alone in hating root canals. Hope you feel better soon!
