The Dentist

I once wrote a post about how bad I hated the dentist. I still experience the crazy bad anxiety attacks when I go to the dentist. A few days ago, my face started swelling pretty bad. My lower molar was also rather excruciating. I went to my dentist, got some x-rays and he says, "You have a really bad infection in 3 of your roots. I'm going to refer you to a specialist." I have to say that this was definitely the 2nd most painful experience I have ever been through. Long story short, I had an abscess. I had to get a root canal and then a few stitches so they could cut me open and let all the infection out. 

I kept taking photos for Mr. Schroeder because of how miserable I was! Now...now that I'm okay and it's all taken care of (well, for now), I am laughing my head off from how bad the pictures are. I have some REAL BAD ones on my phone, but I'm not sure I can release them to the internets quite yet. Trevor was saying over and over, "Just don't get fat, okay? It looks like my hot sexy wife on one side and then somebody else's face on the other side. I'm just confused." So here is a photo taken of one side of my face and the other side of my face, at the same time.
Has ANYBODY had one of these terrible things before? You people see what I have to go through? You now see why I despise the dentist?

  1. OH I hate the dentist too! I totally understand your anxiety, I'm always expecting to be in pain when I go. I've had a root canal too. WORSE pain ever, I couldn't sleep with it. It happened during Christmas time and most dentist offices were closed. Luckily a dentist from my ward prescribed some pain meds for me and got me in asap. I'm glad you are doing better now! haha

    1. I'm SO GLAD I'm not alone, here!! I'm so sorry about your experience with your root canal. Not to mention all the sweets during Christmas time you were most likely not able to eat.
