I cried about it

 it went pretty terribly.

we tried just laughing gas and I ended up having a panic attack and crying and they had to stop for a while. gave me some anti-anxiety drug and then went another round.

apparently those long roots combined with a dense jaw bone made things go not-so-smoothly.

I've got a prescription for an opiate and swallowing hurts so much it brings me to tears.

I'm currently trying to decide between having a smoothie for lunch/dinner and just waiting until tomorrow to eat anything.

I haven't been to a dentist since I left the valley. 
over the years I've considered going but have essentially been paralyzed by the amount of choices here.
on thurs I woke up with pretty extreme pain so I broke down and went to a dentist suggested by a coworker. 

I got put on antibiotics due to an infection, got lectured about needing to get my teeth cleaned, and got my teeth cleaned. they did say my teeth looked good for someone who hasn't seen a dentist in 15 years (and I also have long roots!), but they did not look good otherwise (5 cavities, yikes).

on monday my wisdom teeth are getting removed.
I'm pretty nervous. it'll only be my left side for now; will do my right side once my ins resets with the new year.

I also developed a stye yesterday.

super SUPER fun.

and just in time for the holiday, too. hah!
