The brief summary because dental stuff can be triggery for people anyway: he would've sent me to an oral surgeon had the oral surgeon been open, because I really *needed* the oral surgeon. But I needed immediate care more. And it was a very difficult extraction by *his* standards, not just mine.
( This is the cut-tag for the triggery-due-to-rape thing.Collapse )
This is the filler text so if you want to see about the procedure but not the thing what triggered me, you won't see it by clicking on the next cut tag. Because I care.
Dentist was surprised that I knew that what was being numbed was my trigeminal nerve. Because apparently that's secret PhD knowledge. Seriously, I got the dead stop, narrowed eyes, and he asked all suspiciously, "How do you know that?" What, I don't look like someone who knows about the nerves in my face? Is it the hair? I don't know.
I have Vicodin. And antibiotics. And an icepack and a wad of gauze. I have about eight zillion things I have to do tonight. I'm shaking like a chihuahua on espresso. How are you?

No exercise for 24 hours. I'm like oh that works fine because I don't have to be performing onstage for another 29 hours hahaha. Although actually there's rehearsal. Ha.
Hi guys. So today sucked. How's by you?
