with a week until payday, i really have been trying to ignore my increasingly urgent need to go to the dentist. today i've finally reached the stage where i just can't put it off any longer - i hope to get an emergency dentist appointment tomorrow. the good news is, i got birthday funds from dad that will help cover the bill (i hope!). the bad news is - what the hell, it's my biiiiirthday money and i have to use it to save my teeth. BOO. oh well. i'm lucky i have the option at all.
...it's really hard to find things to eat when you can't move your lower lip too much (it's swollen inside so it hurts if anything pushes against it) and two teeth on right side, almost all the way to the back, are really, really, really not doing well. especially not when chewing anything (even squishy soft things like bread) or encountering something of even the slightest difference in temperature compared to my body temperature. meh.
so. toodles. am going to try and find something i can eat and chew easily using only my left side of the mouth, and that doesn't have an offensive temperature. cin cin.
