Adios, Wisdom Teeth

I know, I know, I look pathetic. I'm trying to smile through those chipmunk cheeks and ice packs. And yes, not a single drop of makeup on my face.
I had a lot of fears about getting my wisdom teeth out. Luckily my biggest fear, getting put under the anesthesia, was not bad at all.
My second biggest fear, having a packload of gause in my mouth, has probably been the worst experience out of this all. I am very claustrophobic and was so happy that my bleeding stopped only after a couple of hours. I hated that gause and when I finally got to take it out, I could see a light at the end of this tunnel.

I know you probably think I'm being dramatic since lots of people get their wisdom teeth out but one of the reasons I waited so long was because I was very afraid of it.

All I can say is that I am glad it's all over and the recovery process has started.
Though I'm starving and craving carbs and am also exhausted beyond belief {woke up at 3am and havent been able to go back to sleep yet}, I am feeling optimist and a bit better than yesterday.
Hydrocodone is making my emotions run wild so please forgive me if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook. I'm trying not to post anything too crazy {hubby had to confiscate my phone yesterday after I mentioned to him some things I was trying to tweet. Yikes!}

Happy Friday, everyone!

And that's how Suze sees it.

There's nothing wrong with feeling nervous about getting your wisdom tooth removed. You've gotten it removed by the dentist, no? That's all that matters. Congrats to ya for that, and take it easy!
