I'm a hot mess, friends.
Friday I began getting a toothache, or at least I thought it was a toothache, but then it went away, just in time for my friends to come over. But when I went to bed (at 2 in the morning) it was really, really bad.
I woke up Saturday and it was worse. and my jaw was beginning to swell. And by 5 in the afternoon it was unbearable. I wanted to cut my head off. I tried calling my dentist but there was no way to reach him, no voicemail, no emergency contact number. Nothing. I thought I could live through the pain until Monday, but Brian pointed out that Monday was a holiday and they would be closed.
So, off to Urgent Care I went. Where my blood pressure was 160/110, thanks to the pain level. (I think)
At Urgent Care I was given an antibiotic and told to take 800 mg of Ibuprofen and two Tylenol Three every six hours. Oh, and the doctor, who reminded me of my high school softball coach, told me to call my dentist. Really? You think I should call my dentist? It's a good thing I went there because I NEVER would have thought to call my dentist.
Glad I paid $75 for Coach Dr. Riley to tell me to see The Dentist.
For my Tooth.
So, I've been medicating myself, but trying to just take one Tylenol Three because I have lots of work to do, but sometimes I take two because OH MY GOD THE PAIN. And my jaw, well, is still swelling.
And I have a terrible headache. It's beautiful outside and I feel like crap. Can't a girl catch break?
So, anyway, if you need me, I'll be sitting right here, in my pajamas on my chair ALL WEEKEND LONG. On my computer. All by my lonesome. Don't worry about me.
Have a safe holiday weekend. Enjoy the warmth. Enjoy your family. Enjoy not having a toothache. or a headache.
I like being pitiful, it's pretty fun!
