2/365 ~ agony

Newer Older


Last week I started not feeling so great. I thought my gums were irritated but as the pain got worse I realized something else was going on. Finally it got to the "shoot myself" stage so I went and got it checked.

Dental abscess. ouch ouch ouch is all I can say.

So for the past few days I have been on antibiotics which upset my stomach and Vicodin which makes me feel better but itchy all over. I can't win.

Not a pleasant experience at all!

    Yikes! I can relate. I've had the same thing before and I know what the 'shoot myself' stage is.

    Try rinsing with warm water and a teaspoon of salt in it. It helped mine heal a bit quicker.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Bummer about the pain - but very cool shot! Love the colors and the material (foil?) of the background.

    LOL nope..it's a piece of tin foil...I baked brownies for my son who was visiting today and when I was packing my pill dispenser they were on the foil I had laid out for the brownies :)

    Oh no!!! Hope you're feeling better! I got one of those a couple of years back...somehow my wisdom tooth caused an infection which led to the abscess..yuck!

    Btw I like the metallic/foil paper thingy underneath :)

    Ditto on the salt water and sometimes yogurt helps the stomach ache (I like Stonyfield which has the largest variety of cultures).
