Ouch!

Okay, today is my initial wise teeth appointment. He's going to look at them and say, wow those suckers need pulled. And then I'm going to cry! All and all it will be a great experience to be had by all. I guess I don't look forward to any of it. But who does? (other than Ty who gets giddy every time he gets to go to the dentist) So I'm not feeling a bit (well maybe a tiny bit) sorry for myself. Never mind, I feel a large bit sorry for myself. Because I hate pain, and the idea of it. It makes my stomach turn when I stub my toe. I had epidurals with all four of my children. I take ibuprofen when I feel like I might get a headache. My pain tolerance is very very low. SO I am a big baby, and I really don't want to go to the dentist even for a consultation, because he's going to tell me what I don't want to here, and at the end of it all there will be a date set, a date that looms over me, a date that will inch closer and closer. A DATE OF PAIN!!!

I am a sicko, i guess. I love the detist. I haven't had issues with my teeth, or braces or anything. I like teh feeling of freshly cleaned teeth.
I don't take a tylenol until the pain is unbearable.
I had a baby at home with no pain meds (and it hurt.)
But you are strong in other ways. Ways that is counts MORE. Like your beliefs, and ideals. That is where it counts.

if they knock you out - you won't feel a thing! recovering is not an issue either but DO take it easy for the amount of time they tell you to! I had mine pulled and then we loaded up the car and went camping for 2 days - although I felt good, I hurt days later. so, it's really NOT that big of deal to get your wisdom teeth pulled. Who have you been talking to that put those thoughts in your head that you will be in extreme pain? Believe me - it's not a bad experience at all!

I used to love to go to the dentist when I was a kid.. That guy in Oracle would turn up the laughing gas to an insane level. (I swear you could feel it while still sitting in the waiting room.) There was NO pain involved with that...
