Dentists, velociraptors, drugs and all that shit!

What a bloody week I’ve had – I’ve been so drugged up I feel like I’ve done a week at a Rock Festival – but with none of the fun that goes with it 😳

When I was at primary school we used to have a mobile dentist come to the school – in his little caravan. Β It was so exciting – we would all queue up, pushing and shoving, desperate to get in that caravan – he was abit like the Child Catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang πŸ˜„ we would love to have our little shiny teeth looked at – get a sticker and some of that pink stuff to swill around in our little mouths. Β And then it all changed 😳 My Mom started taking us to a private dentist. Β I could name and shame him cos I know he’s long dead now – I know this because he was about 80 when we used to see him – I think he also had Parkinson’s as he used to shake like fuck when that drill was in our mouths ………… This is where my fear came from!

As a consequence I tend to only go to the dentist when absolutely necessary – or for my children, who have bloody perfect teeth, due, I’m sure, to me forcing a toothbrush in their little mouths making sure they never have cavities.

So off I trotted to see my dentist – at this point I was on pain killers every 4 hours and also antibiotics. Β I started to cry as soon as he pinned me down on his chair – with his knee 😳 actually he was really nice and kind – which made me cry even more – how can someone so kind inflict so much pain for a living? Β Actually that’s a lie too – he didn’t hurt me – apart from his knee 😳 and even though I behaved like a wailing velociraptor and tried snapping at his fingers – and his knee – throughout it all he was very kind – so kind, infact, that I offered to make him a cake πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„ this is my way of showing love to my fellow man – I always offer to bake a cake for those I love – rather ironic really – seeing as I’m a shit cook ……

Anyway, the end result was the news that yes the tooth must come out – in hospital – which, incidentally is what I wanted. Β I’ve done my research and know this possibly isn’t the best answer – but for me I think it is – and also for my dentist – he needs his fingers to continue his career 😜

I now have to wait till they can fit me in for the procedure, so it was a case of keeping my pain under control. Β And oh my god – what pain!!!! Β I would happily give birth to all 4 of my children – all together – sideways – than feel that level of pain again.

At the moment I’m in a happy place – slurping mushroom soup and scrambled egg up a straw – dribbling and chuckling in the corner, high as a kite on drugs πŸ˜„

If you want money or possibly a cake – now is the time to ask 😳😳

Hippo Workend folks, have a food one 😜

  1. Lol, I have a lifetime fear of dentists as well. Then around Thanksgiving 2014, I decided after 10 years to get my teeth cleaned. Found a dentist I really like and doesn’t make me feel like an ass because i am 35 and afraid of the dentist. I’ve got all the work i needed, done all with no pain. 2 teeth extractes, 1 root canal, 1 crown and a multitude of filings. That being said, i would have my children all over again (which i did with no drugs), everyday of the week over going to the dentist. Lol, funny isn’t it.

    1. Well done 😊 I shivered a little reading all that dental treatment. I have to say dentists are fab nowadays, just not for me 😳 bloody teeth, give no end of trouble arriving and no end of trouble leaving – just like me at a party – on the lambrini πŸ˜„

  3. Around this time in 2014, I had an abscessed tooth which required two rounds of antibiotics, a root canal, and an additional oral surgery before the dentist could put a cap on it. None of this was fun, but compared to the infection itself it wasn’t so bad. I was prescribed two different kinds of painkillers, but one dose of each made me so sick that I just took over-the-counter strength ibuprofen.

  4. I didn’t go to the dentist for 13 years because my mother was easily talked into that it was a waste of money. At age 23 after the 13 years, the dentist was a little horrified. “You have early signs of gum disease, you need fillings, your gums have receded from brushing too hard, your teeth are going to fall out prematurely.” AHHHH. Since then I liked going to the dentist but I avoid it now because I don’t want them scaring me into getting unnecessary fillings.

      1. Definitely – mine have never bothered me before – in fact I don’t even remember them coming through. I would have been happy to leave well alone – if only I hadn’t eaten that bloody chilli beef 😨😨

  5. It’s so nice to know that there are plenty of adults, around the world even, that are not keen on dentists! πŸ™‚ My son had a molar pulled when he was just 5 because he didn’t brush his teeth enough an had a HUGE cavity. Now he has a spacer until the adult tooth comes in around 12yrs (another 5 years from now!). He, hopefully, will not grow up to have the same fear that the rest of do.

    I also want to share one of my favorite, personal cleaning stories. I went to the dentist when I was in my early 20s, on a Saturday morning (around 8am) after a night of drinking. I slept through the cleaning because I was so hungover!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Best visit ever!

    Get better soon!
