Dental Surgery Update
OH MY GOSH, that hurt. If having a decayed tooth1 removed doesn’t hurt as bad as having the wisdom teeth removed, I’m terrified to go get my wisdom teeth removed next year. They prescribed hydrocodone, a pill I put everywhere on allergy sheets due to the fact that it gives me utterly horrendous nightmares contrary to its pain relieving ways, and I wish they’d prescribed the 800 mg ibuprofen instead so I could take an entire dosage of pain reliever instead of just half in order to [hopefully] avoid the majority of the pain.
I was supposed to sleep, but I only made it to halfway sleep mode. And I’m certain they thought I was asleep. Nope. I was half awake, half asleep, and half high off whatever that oxygen stuff they gave me was. I zoned in and out of “awake” (to which they told me to “go back to sleep” when I was never asleep to begin with), “asleep” (being in dreamland-slash-highland) and completely high in highland (where I dreamt of being in the rain forest as a rain forest bird and the rain forest was a roller coaster/amusement park to animals). However, he did numb me well because I didn’t feel anything. When he used his noisy tools, the animals and I all organized a protest for the company that was trying to cut down the trees. Like I said: I was in highland.
As for food, I think I’m just going to continue to rely on potato soup because it seems to be the easiest thing to eat. Maybe smoothies later. This shit is not as all it’s cracked up to be; I didn’t expect to feel this horrible.
I am in so much pain that I would cry if I could.

Now to refill my ice pack and attempt sleep.
