the Dentist

So.

<insert 5 to 10 minutes of metal scraping on, around your bottom front teeth here> Make sure to include the bone being scraped by metal sound that’s like finger nails on a chalk board. Twinge some.

Hygienist asks you: “Are your gums sensitive there?”

Your only obvious reply: “Well yea, when you’re poking them.”

Duh?

(To her credit, she did then apply that numbing gel stuff that made it much easier to handle.)

I hate the dentist with a passion. Hate. Fear. Get anxious about. Etc.

If you ever meet a dentist with the last name of Savage run away. Even if you’ve seen dentists by other names at the same practice he works for. Run away.

I also hate oral asthma medicine that does things like cause gum inflammation, sinus pain and tooth pain so bad you can’t floss.

And I have multiple sclerosis fibromyalgia, asthma, drug allergies, and migraines. Basically, I have a collection of invisible chronic health problems. I don't just survive these things, but sometimes I do hate them because I see doctors so often that keeping healthy and staying full time employed is currently impossible.
