Off to the dentist again

Normally I would be dreading it, but not this time. I’m feeling extremely claustrophobic today and I can’t wait to get out of here for a bit. The last few days have been good for me though – I had a wonderful birthday and a very relaxing weekend. But now I am starting to feel stressed and anxious and I definitely need some time away from everyone. I have a ridiculous amount of work to do, so when I get back I’m going to have to crank up the volume on my iPod and try to shut myself off from distractions and tune out of what’s going on around me.

I can’t feel my face

… which is probably a blessing right now ‘cos I know when the anesthetic wears off I am going to be in some serious pain. Root canal treatment is just no fun! Why do the injections not work properly on me while I’m there? I only start feeling really numb when I get home. After 2 hours of trauma to my mouth I feel a bit shattered and groggy. And I’m hungry, but I can’t eat anything yet =(

Going to try and get some work done. Later …
