I had my tooth pulled yesterday and I spent most of the day today recovering. The actually procedure wasn't bad at all. The only pain was the two Novocaine injections, which just stung for a minute. The tooth came out super fast and I felt pressure but no pain whatsoever. I was surprised it was so fast and painless.
The Novocaine wore off about the time I arrived home, though. I was in pain and all the PTSD stuff kicked in big time. It was a really rough night last night. A lot of crying, some flashbacks, nightmares when I finally drifted off to sleep.
Today I tried to do a little writing but didn't have much success. I just couldn't concentrate. I was anxious and depressed. I am so not looking forward to seeing the dentist tomorrow to get started on the bridge. I've thought a lot about not going. About just living with a gap in my front teeth.
