URGH. I have to go to the dentist, the Doc says my ears look good, and he thinks I may have an abscess, which I have since been informed usually means the tooth has to come out or a root canal.
Heck I am terrified to get a cavity filled let a lone a root canal or a tooth removed. But right about now I wouldn't care if I could get it done. I am on the cancellation list in this town and emergency list for the town 40 mins away. The quickest either can get me in is 4 months time. 4 MONTHS!!!!!!! that is unreal.
We really can't afford to travel 4 hours to a dentist, even though people have told me that you can get an appointment fairly quick. This is one of the times I wish I was on social assistance, the trip would be paid for, and half the dental work paid as well. Rod's company insurance covers 100% of dental work up to a certain amount. So the only money I would need would be the travel money.
We may just have to budget it in, cause I don't know how much more of this I can take.
I am on antibiotics, so hopefully if there is an infection there it may help, I have so many meds in me, it may not be safe for me to close my eyes tonight, and I still have a shit load of pain. I even tried icing the pain away but that didn't help. I read to take a shot of whiskey and hold it near the tooth for a little and spit it out. Wonder would Vodka work ( I have the vodka in the house from a few months ago)
Anyone have any advice for the pain, while I wait to get into see a dentist?
