Not myself....

So last Friday, I had to have some oral surgery.....wisdom teeth out-all four.  For those that know me, know I am terrified of the dentist...and the doctors really.

The procedure went as planned basically, with some minor things I won't get into on the blog happening during the surgery-just know that THOSE are the reasons I am scared.....all my nightmares came true!

Moving on, today is day six post op and I still feel like shit.  My mouth doesn't "hurt" per say, but it's uncomfortable and still swollen on the right side.  All I want to do is sleep, and I certainly didn't want to return to work today & have to talk to people & pretend to smile.  I don't feel human anymore.....I feel melted and weird.  Part of my jaw is still numb from the injections....and I actually do feel pain (not constant) when I rinse my mouth out with salt water (or anything cold touching it) after I eat.  I read up on dry sockets & I am just hoping that isn't what is going on..and since my jaw is 1/2 numb I just can't tell!

To top it all off, I am on the worst period of my I just feel like calling it quits - dragging my sorry ass back to the house & being a shut in for another week.
