It’s currently 3:10 am on Thursday morning. I am awake because I am in EXCRUCIATING pain. I had my wisdom tooth removed on Monday afternoon and I believe I am now suffering from something called dry socket. I woke up at 11pm, after going to bed at 9, in agony. After doing some quicky google-ing, dry socket was my diagnosis. I quickly took another pain pill which only managed to dull the pain, rather than put me in a dreamy bliss as it’s been doing the last few days. I had even managed most of yesterday without the prescription stuff, but the pain is DEFINITELY worse.
I have just taken another pill, although it’s only been 3.5 hours since my last one. I’m hoping it will kick in enough for me to sleep until the morning. And then I’m on the phone to the dentist the minute they open.
One positive thing about all this is I’ve lost 4 lbs since Monday Eating a 1/4 cup of oatmeal for breakfast, a glass of chocolate milk and 6 pieces of macaroni all day can do that to a person.
