Of Teeth and Terror

13,464 Days Alive

$1,817.00 of Dental Work to be Done

18 X-Rays Done

1 Very Stressful Day

I partially cracked a tooth eating at work today. Despite my literal terror at the thought of going to the dentist, I checked my insurance and made an appointment.

It took me about five minutes to force myself out of the car when I got to the appointment. I was so nervous.

My blood pressure was elevated. Which, the nurse totally understood. We took it again after a few minutes of deep breathing and chatting and it was better.

I’ve no idea how I’m going to pay for all the dental work I need.

I’m so tired. And in pain.

I tried coloring and crocheting to try and chill. It didn’t work. So I took my dose of hydroxyzine and my other night time meds.

Mentally, I’m scrambled eggs. Stressed and jumbled and in more pain than usual.

I’m going to bed.

Take your meds, folks.
