Nervous energy is the worst!
Tuesday, October 18, 2016
So yesterday I had an apt. with a periodontist. Well let me start from the beginning. 40 years ago I was 7. I was sitting in bleachers and got up to leave with my hands in my pockets, I tripped on my way down and could not get my hands out of my pockets to catch my fall. I hit my chin on the metal handrail, bit through my bottom lip and cracked one of my top front teeth all the way up. Yes it was a big messy emergency. I don't remember much just that it was traumatic. Anyway, recently I have been having a isolated gum issue (very very small inflammation like growth) over my crown (the tooth that was injured). I was sent to a specialist yesterday (I was so unbelievably nervous) She said she does not think it's cancer
but wanted to do a biopsy to see what it is. I went into total panic mode, I was so nervous I just about made myself sick for a 5 min. biopsy procedure. I kept going back & forth with not having it done right then, can I come back and have it done (build up my courage so to speak). lol. I felt like such a baby. I came to my senses and decided to go through with it. They must have thought I was nuts. lol. I go back in 2 weeks (Halloween) to go over the results. Gosh I hope I never have to have that done again! Anyone messing with my mouth scares the out crud of me I think I have some kind of phobia or something???
They sent me home w/instructions & a prescription for pain meds. I got it filled but haven't taken any just, Aleve. When I got home I was so tired from all the nervous energy that I slept for 2 hrs!!!! Crazy! I did feel better after that 2 hr. siesta and I even got my workout in!! Yay me.
Today is MUCH better!! So glad that is done and Monday is gone!!
Have a great day everyone!!
