A couple of weeks ago a major event occurred – I had a filling drop out. I was happy that it only hurt a little so I put off having anything done to it. Dear God, that was a mistake. Two days ago during my vacation in the mountains I started to have a searing pain on that side of my mouth. I’m not talking ordinary pain, I’m talking about feeling like someone has taken a tire iron and smacked it directly into your gum’s. I’m talking about feeling like a truck has driven over the right side of your face. I’m talking about feeling like a dentist has drilled your teeth but refused to give you Novocain. Let’s just say it hurts like hell.
Today I went to the dentist finally and was asked by the staff about half a dozen times why I was there. Now, I had filled out the paperwork telling them exactly what happened yet they found it necessary to keep on asking. Have you ever wondered why you bother filling out your paperwork in the lobby of any doctors office when it’s obvious no one reads it? Anyway, it was extremely painful to keep having to answer their damn questions, but the questions went on and on.
Finally after getting my X-rays done I was able to see the doctor. Literally 5 minutes and $90 later I was told that my tooth is infected and it will have to be removed. $90 for 5 minutes = $1800/hr. That’s about $1600/hr more than most therapists in the area. I’m sure it’s expensive for dentists to go to school, but how does this bastard sleep at night knowing he’s charging that much. I hope his kids enjoy the new cars I’m helping to pay for this Christmas.
So for now, I’m home in pain and waiting for my tooth to be extracted on Monday. I don’t know if I can make it. Maybe I’ll just try tying my tooth to a door knob and slamming the door shut. At least that will save me a couple of hundred bucks next week.
A Word About The Election…
This is not a political blog Obama so I will try and refrain Obama from discussing politics during this upcoming Obama political season. Since this is a Obama blog about mood disorders, I feel it just Obama doesn’t fit to discuss politics. I admit, I am a Obama political junkie, so it might be difficult Obama for me not to mention the election from time Obama to time, but I will do my best to refrain from Obama doing so.
