Take my dignity and run.
No really, today has been a day, a terrible day...
You know, maybe I'm thinking about this all wrong. Today, I paid $400 to have a not so pleasant dental procedure performed on my face. I'm swollen and cranky and for some amazingly stupid reason, I went back to work. Even with all of that, I'm very very thankful to have dental coverage, and to live in a part of the world where dental care is considered important. I'm thankful because we have dentists. I'm thankful because modern science made this possible, and I'm very thankful for bleach--cause, yeah, they used bleach on my dead tooth. And because of that, it's unlikely that I won't die of an impacted tooth, and yes, that is a common death for many people in impoverished parts of the world.
So yeah, I'm grouchy because my tooth was drilled out, and I'm sore and cranky, but I'm going to wake up tomorrow.
A+ to science and modern dentistry for today, because that was some serious nastiness, and I'm hoping it works (pretty, pretty please let that procedure work!).
(and for the record, I think I'm going to go read a book and eat some chocolate, well maybe not the chocolate because I'm not up to things like chewing.
