It was you Fredo. You Broke my Heart


A couple of days ago, I had a tooth pulled. In all honesty, the tooth wasn't bothering me all that much, but my favorite dentist in the world probably wanted to get even with me for vomiting on him a few weeks ago, and told me the thing had to be extracted.

Even though my regular dentist made the recommendation, I was sent to someone else. I can understand him not wanting anything to do with me after the last visit.

So the new woman who spoke in a heavy, what seemed to be Russian, or maybe Hungarian accent, had to be the most flattering dentist, ever. She told me the whole time how pretty I was, and what great legs I had. I know she wasn't flirting, but maybe she was trying to assure I didn't throw up on her out of spite for yanking my tooth out. After numbing me extensively, she said the words. "Opeen Vide, S." A yank. A pull. "OWWW! FUCK!" I was screaming. "Nut to Vurry, S. Eat is only da pressure." Now I'm no dentist. Would never want to be. Everyone hates fucking dentists. But let me tell you...this was not pressure I was feeling. It was a shooting pain that stemmed up from my jaw to my ear, and I let out another yelp. She quickly took her hands out of my mouth, since it was closing quickly and in a very powerful stride that almost snapped down on her finger, and she looked at me horrified, wondering what my problem was. "Vut is da problems Sveetie?" She asks. "I'm not numb!!" I exclaim, tears streaming down my face. She begins stroking my cheek with her latex gloved hand, and telling me that everything is going to be fine. It really was quite soothing. She gives me another shot and I was good to go. Pop! Out came the tooth, my mouth was stuffed with gauze and I looked like the female version of The Godfather for the rest of the day.

When I went home, for the most part I was fine. I took my pain medication, and the antibiotics that were prescribed, but I was groggy and having a little trouble focusing on anything. Yesterday, I felt even more yucky, and the fever set in. Today, I'm completely lethargic, feverish, and nauseous, along with a nice sized ear ache. So I'm assuming either she drugged me and took advantage of me, I'm like this as a side effect, or the hole where my tooth once was is getting infected, and I need to go to the doctor. I'm assuming it's the latter.

Oh, and one more thing...

You know how I vomited on the last dentist when he took impressions? Well, the stupid fuck managed to break my impressions and I had to do them all over again! Incompetence at its best, or worst, depending on how you look at it.

I'm sick. I feel yucky, and I want to just curl up in bed for days and days. I absolutely hate being sick, and I'm a big baby while I am. I like to be cuddled and babied, and I talk like a child in a high pitched baby voice, with a slight whine that would annoy even the most codependent of mothers. Boo hoo. :(

  2. If it is getting infected you better go see a doctor. Hope you feel better soon!

    PS. I hate dentists too, but have not yet vomitted on one. I'll give it a try next time :)

  3. You poor baby ... really. I've really enjoyed my visit here.

    Regarding tatts - I've never 'hated' or 'judged' someone because of a tattoo. My daughter's father is a well known New England tattoo artist who is covered in them, so clearly, I'm not a tatt-phobe. All I ask is that because I choose not to own my myself, don't judge me either and we'll be fine. :)

    I don't have pierced ears either. Imagine that? Made it all the way into old haghood and never had the ears riveted.
    I guess I just don't like to do things to myself. That is - other than what you wrote about in the PREVIOUS post. Now that? That's a totally different kind of 'do to yourself' isn't it? *grin*

    Nice writing style. Feels comfy. (and thank you for stopping by the Outpost)

  4. You know what I can't believe? How freakin' expensive dentist's are! Seriously. It's expensive to go to the dentist. Especially now that the husbands and my insurance does not cover dental. At all.

    I never used to be afraid of the dentist. I am now. It's been too long that I haven't been.

    ***argh***

  6. Hope you're feeling better, but the fever bothers me. You should really take care of the infection quickly, before it becomes a real problem.

  7. Eileen,
    I'm not mad at you, at all. I really haven't been feeling well that last few days and I'm have trouble focusing a little on writing emails or answering comments, as you can see, I've gotten a little lax. Hope you're doing well, and I'll email you a little later today.


    Glugster, vomiting on my dentist was the highlight of my year. How pathetic is that?


    Weary Hag, Welcome. :) My mother pierced my ears when I was just a baby and thank God I don't remember getting it done. I'm not a big fan of needles. Well, not that kind anyway. :P
    Thanks for the compliment. :)


    Jen, It's insane how much they cost! I have full coverage right now, well for most things, but for the price of any cosmetic stuff, they charge your first born!

    Angel, I'm doing a little bit better. I'm in a shitty mood which isn't helping how I'm feeling, but I'm working on that, too.


    Ann, the fever has gone down a little. I still have one, but not as high. Last night it was over 102 but this morning it's just a little over 100. I'm taking antibiotics, so hopefully they do their job other than making my tummy hurt.

  9. Hi! I'm new here can but I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your writing. I sent you an email but it came back so if you want to chat sometime or just need someone to talk to, you can email me at h.finnigan@yahoo.com. Don't worry I'm not a stalker or a weirdo, and I'm not a male and I'm sure that helps my case. I kope you're feeling better.

    Sincerely,
    Hannah

  10. S, I'm sorry! Did they put you on some antibiotics?

    I read both of those stories. Very entertaining, though for you it was not. Dentistry is horrible!

    It was pretty bad to me because I had a dentist that kept thinking I had problems with my teeth--even gave me a root canal I didn't need. It turns out my teeth were fine. It was the BIG FREAKING CANCEROUS TUMOR growing in my upper jaw that was the problem!

    LOL.

  11. Oh. My. God. I was completely horrified while reading your story! I hope someone is there to baby and take care of you.

    Ps. LOVE the blog. And thanks for stopping by mine again :) See you soon!

  12. I don't think i ever mentioned my brother - law-is a dentist. Now there's a money saving relative. But I do need to ask in a roundabout way if he's ever been vomitted on.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I know my last comment seemed strange so I made a blog so you wouldn't feel like I was a crazy like your other anonymous person. I hope your feeling better.

    ReplyDelete
  14. sounds awful, take lot's of painkillers and anti biotics, drink heavily and...oh wait that might kill you.obviously,I'm not a doctor. feel better.

    ReplyDelete
  15. If your tummy is still bothering you, try some yogurt, if you can handle it. That usually helps when the antibiotics upset the stomach.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm sorry you're sick. Maybe it would make you feel better to know that you have a bunch of votes, including mine in the bloggers choice awards. I love this blog and I find myself checking it a few times a day to see if you have posted! Sorry I don't usually comment, but I saw you were sick and I wanted to cheer you up!

  18. First off, to everyone,
    Thanks for the well wishes. I had to get IV antibiotics last night and spent the day in the hospital. Things are somewhat better now, and I should be fine.


    P.P., Thanks. I'm working on it!


    Hannah, I never got an email or bounced one back. I'm not worried about stalkers and the like. I think I've figured out how to stop them. My email is in my profile, and you're more than welcome to try again. Thanks. :)


    Scott, I was initially put on antibiotics, but they made me so sick I couldn't take them. That sucks about what the dentist did to you. I'm glad it worked out for the best in the long run.


    Shrig, Sorry for horrifying you...lol. I don't think anyone likes dentists....


    Dave Z, After remembering the look on my dentist's face after it happened, I'm assuming it never happened to him before. I wish I had a dentist in my family!


    Luck of the Irish, Please don't worry about it so much!


    Ted, I think I was taking your advice, even before you gave it. It probably wasn't the best of ideas...


    Ann, I opened a thing of yogurt last night and the smell alone bothered me..I ended up eating a piece of bread. It helped a little and I hope it continues to.


    Sinead, it did cheer me up! Thanks!


    Anon, thanks. I'm working on it. :)

  19. What is it, when giving the novacaine they sometimes miss the mark? The same thing happened to me, this dentist was starting drilling for a root canal and I could feel everything. There were tears running down my face and I was clutching the arms of the chair, I never felt anything like this! I had told her that I could feel the drilling and she said it was the vibration from the drill I was feeling. No it wasn't. I was ready to run out of the place and never return. She was a student dentist, and got an instructor who gave me another shot which worked this time. Didn't feel a thing. I finished up the root canal with her, it took forever and never went back.
    Hope you're feeling better! Be careful of the infection, it can get serious if if gets bad.

  20. Rosa, Welcome. Nice to have new visitors. It's true. They assume they know what the fuck they're doing but when you yelp in pain, they think you're bullshitting. Give me gas any day of the week. Nitrous oxide is the perfect pain stuff. You know you're in pain. You feel it. You just don't give a shit.
