Dentist

I'm doing better today.  Last night was one of those rock bottom nights.  I consumed half a bottle of wine (I'm not a huge drinker) and was just losing it.  I put myself to bed after the post and feel better and calmer this morning.

Took Kate to gymnastics this morning and she did so much better than a week ago.  She was adorable and had an absolute blast.  I genuinely enjoyed her and doing the class with her.

Then I went to the dentist.  This was a get x-rays and have a state of union kind of appointment.  Well, the state of the union is bad.  For anyone who doesn't know I'm not afraid of the dentist.  Nope, I'm petrified. I'd rather do almost anything, then have to see the dentist.  Exhibit A, I haven't been in over 10 years.  In early 2005 I had my wisdom teeth removed and that was my last visit.

Well, they found a cyst in my jaw.  I have to be referred to a specialist to have it checked out and have it possibly biopsied.  I also have 13 cavities. 8 are brand new cavities and 5 are old cavities that have cracks, fell out, etc.  Just sucks.  I'm hoping the cyst has nothing to do with my infection, but right now I don't know.  The dentist said she didn't think so.

Tomorrow I'll call the specialist and see about an appt and go from there.

  1. I hear you. I am not a fan of the dentist. But get those cavities taken care of dear. I know the last time I had cavities filled, I requested gas to calm my nerves. It does help. Ask!
