Dentist and Too Much to Do

 The pain finally got to me yesterday and I phoned my dentist. So I'm going there at 8 am. Those who know me well will know that the pain had to be serious for me to do this. But it's to the point where I can't sleep for the pain, and since I only get 5-1/2 hours of sleep a night on a good night, having my sleep decreased from there is most certainly NOT a good thing.

So, it's not going to be as easy a fix as I had hoped, although I didn't have to deal with needles and nastiness today.  Turns out it had nothing to do with my fall of five weeks ago, and everything to do with my body being a traitor to my mental age (which bears no calendrical relationship to my physical age).  Apparently the stupid tooth has a nerve (I actually did know that) and that nerve is dying (I'm less that thrilled about that) and therefore I have to see a specialist in Endodontics to have a root canal.  ICKY!!!!!  

After speaking to one of the doctors my dentist recommended, I won't use her unless I have to because she only uses gas and novacaine and I have NO intention of being awake, alert, or cogniscent in any way.  But after trying to find a Endodontic dentist who will actually put me out, I'm starting to strike out.  This isn't good.  I'm going to continue trying, though.  For a procedure that will end up costing me WAY too frakkin' much, I don't want to be feeling ANY of it.  I will continue the hunt.  

In the meantime, however, I am still in pain and even though I know the solution to the problem, I'm not altogether sure if the cure isn't worse than the illness... <sigh>.  

Thanks to all of you for your kind thoughts and positive strokes.  I would never have been as calm about any of this without them!

This didn't post the first time, so I'm trying again.  If it got lost in cyberspace and posts twice, I hope you forgive me.
