The Dentist-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named

So yesterday I went to the dentist and it was terrible and I CAN'T TELL YOU ABOUT IT!  See it was a new dentist and among all the new patient papers I had to fill out one of them was a contract swearing you wouldn't BLOG ABOUT THEM! Whiskey Tango?!  First of all, tell me I can't do something and that is the thing I most want to do. 2nd of all, maybe they should just try to do a good enough job that any blog fodder would be GOOD advertising instead of bad.

Anyway, I just won't tell you where I went.  So I went to this Dentist-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and it was very fancy and nice but I could really ENJOY their cookies and bottled waters because my tooth was hurting so much.  When I finally got in, I warned them that I took a lot to get numb.  So they gave me extra.  But here is the thing, and this wasn't Dr. Voldemort's fault, I didn't take a lot to get numb. I NEVER GOT NUMB.  Through out the root canal they tried over and over as I cried and actually screamed a few times but it never worked.  It was the worst pain I have ever had, and I have had a lot of pain in my life.  And now I am scared to death to go to the dentist, ANY dentist, ever again to finish all my dental work.  I can't go through that again!

They gave me an antibiotic and Loritab which I definitely need today.  But I am dreading the future and pouring the internet trying to find out what could have made me lose all sensitivity to anesthetic.  Not a lot of concrete answers.  I am just going to have to go under completely for my next root canal, though that is SUPER expensive.

EVERYTHING is expensive when you have almost no money coming in.  School, especially if I don't get any of these scholarships I am applying for.  There's a lot of them, so I am hoping at least even by STATISTICS I should win SOMETHING if I enter enough.  And a trip to Spain... Sigh.

Ola called me yesterday on my way to the Dentist-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named just to wish me luck and say sweet things to me.  It's been a long time since we have talked and I have missed hearing his voice,  He is such an amazing person.

So today I am just going to sit around the house, watch Chronicles of Narnia, play with 2 new hermit crabs Mahana and Fossil and the newly up from Molting, Archie MacPhee, and maybe hit the Library.  And have a lot of pills and probably cry.
