In case you’re waiting in suspense to hear about the root canal part 2, I’ll fill you in. I could just say that it was really bad timing on my part with the whole “no longer relying on conventional medicine” thing and leave it at that. But I must elaborate because complaining is therapeutic.
Without conventional pain killers, I can say with certainty I would be dead from this pain. Only a slight exaggeration, but seriously, I am the reason root canals get a bad rap because this has been HELL. The endodontist helpfully said he’s never seen this before. (He’s youngerish, but still.) So, I’ll see an oral surgeon on Monday. I would be on my second round of steroids right now but the pharmacy was closed. So tylenol, ibuprofin, moist heatpacks, and biofreeze. And clove oil. I’m not ready to touch the narcotics yet, but I’m getting close. I’m about to try whiskey. Are you just supposed to drink so much of it that you pass out? Because that sounds lovely.
I’ll keep you updated, I know you all can’t wait to hear more.
