Nervous energy is the worst!

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

So yesterday I had an apt. with a periodontist. Well let me start from the beginning. 40 years ago I was 7. I was sitting in bleachers and got up to leave with my hands in my pockets, I tripped on my way down and could not get my hands out of my pockets to catch my fall. I hit my chin on the metal handrail, bit through my bottom lip and cracked one of my top front teeth all the way up. Yes it was a big messy emergency. I don't remember much just that it was traumatic. Anyway, recently I have been having a isolated gum issue (very very small inflammation like growth) over my crown (the tooth that was injured). I was sent to a specialist yesterday (I was so unbelievably nervous) She said she does not think it's cancer emoticon but wanted to do a biopsy to see what it is. I went into total panic mode, I was so nervous I just about made myself sick for a 5 min. biopsy procedure. I kept going back & forth with not having it done right then, can I come back and have it done (build up my courage so to speak). lol. I felt like such a baby. I came to my senses and decided to go through with it. They must have thought I was nuts. lol. I go back in 2 weeks (Halloween) to go over the results. Gosh I hope I never have to have that done again! Anyone messing with my mouth scares the out crud of me I think I have some kind of phobia or something???

They sent me home w/instructions & a prescription for pain meds. I got it filled but haven't taken any just, Aleve. When I got home I was so tired from all the nervous energy that I slept for 2 hrs!!!! Crazy! I did feel better after that 2 hr. siesta and I even got my workout in!! Yay me.

Today is MUCH better!! So glad that is done and Monday is gone!!

Have a great day everyone!!

    You'll be in my prayers KS and I know what you mean about the "nervous energy" and then sleeping. Been there, done that. Take care of yourself and keep positive and moving forward...

    Carpe Diem

    Isn't it crazy how much our childhood can haunt us? Even when we know better. You were strong and made it through. Good luck with the results.
