Off to the dentist soon

September 3rd, 2008 at 10:22 am

My gums surgery is scheduled for 2:30 pm today. I'm nervous and excited. If this means the end of feeling unhealthy for awhile, I'll be so happy. If my random health problems continue, I may need to learn transcendental meditation or something. I don't deal well with the feeling of my body slowly breaking down. Obviously I will have to get used to that feeling at some point, but at 34 it feels way too soon. (Yes, I'm very melodramatic when it comes to my health.)

AS suggested moving my physical up this year, as I seem to have lots of things to discuss with my doctor. I may consider it if I don't feel free and clear soon.

Anyway, here's hoping my surgery goes well and I'm not in pain for too long afterward. I bought some pureed soups in case I don't feel like chewing for awhile.

I just hope I feel up to housework, since I'm trying to get NT to stay away from chores and focus on work and school (which combined give him about a 60-hour work week not counting homework).

    I had a tooth extraction not too long ago. The lingering pain wash away any fears or anxiety I had about the operation. Big Grin And while it ached for a short while, I am happy to report that I feel better than ever! (And a lot more careful about sweets.) So, I'm sure or at least hope that your operation will be the same way: Quick and not too painful.

    P.S. What do you think of Yoga?

    I hope you are feeling better than expected. I'll be looking for an update.

    I think I was about 34 when I got my first crown and felt pretty much the same way you do. Now I have several, LOL. . . I've become accustomed to the idea.
