This still sucks

I feel like I've permanently gone to the dentist and he's keeping me on a continuous supply of Novocaine. Eating and drinking is weird. Licking my lips is an adventure. Seeing out of one eye (since the other is taped) makes me disoriented and tire quickly.

I'm ready for all this crap to be done. I'm tired of being tired. I'm tired of not being able to eat. I'm tired of all these medications I'm on - which have cost me a small fortune.

(And, by 'me', I mean my mother, cuz I don't have extra cash laying around to buy Rx's.)

I have had some health issue now for nearly a month. First my ear, then my lungs, now my face. I'm super not excited about it.

And, now, I'm going to lay back down because I think you've all put up with my whiny self long enough.

last time I went to the dentist, while the left side of my mouth was still numb, i took a tweezer and painlessly pulled out all the little lip hairs.

its a good plan, but now i need to get the right side frozen

i'm hoping your feeling better! i just got a root canal done, and all i can say is the if it hadn't been for the rx's i would have never made it through.

Blue - Well, my skin isn't numb. Its the muscles. So, I think tweezing would still hurt like a b*tch.

Angie - I wish I could of gone today. Can't wait to see the 4 photos! ;)

IGS4ME - Regretfully, I'm not currently on any pain killers. I am on some that make me awfully drowsy, though.

Man, you'll do anything to keep from helping me finish the nursery won't ya! FINE. Let's just say I finished it myself (I haven't, but let's pretend)...NOW will you please start feeling better? I'm tired of worrying about ya.

Now don't forget that Tracie & Shawn & the kids will be here this weekend and they will want to see you all...so you better just drug yourself all up until then and get to feeling better or I WILL give you something to cry about. :o)

For the record- there is NO WAY I could compete with this mess! :)

I'll put up with a goose egg on my head any day, over what you've been dealing with! Sheesh!

Sheila said...

KG - I'm glad to that someone understands this from a first-person point of view...

Sugar Queen - OMG, if my face did get that prickly feeling, I think it would drive me more crazy than it being numb!! Thank goodness that shouldn't happen.

Trish - Believe me, I'd much rather be finishing the nursery.

Eliz - If this isn't the end of my illness, I will have to consider selling my house to afford the ER bills!

RG - A goose egg?! Right, I think you had a smidge more than an goose egg.
