Thoughts for the day: Pain!

Painless dentistry is an oxymoron!

If I get my wisdom tooth out, I’m assuming I will still have all the knowledge I’ve accumulated; I just won’t know what to do with it!

My husband bought a book called Pain Free.  It’s supposed to help become . . . wait for it . . .  pain-free.  After assuming some of the contortions, I think I would rather pay for my pain rather than get it free!  We don’t have much discretionary income, so if I had to pay for it I’m sure I would have less!

C.S. Lewis said that pain is God’s megaphone to the world.  I wish he would just send me an email.

Pain is being at work on the day the fire department is testing the alarm bells . . . over and over and over again.  Hey, guys!   It works!

    How bout a heating pad? Or ice. I know it’s one or the other!

    The only consolation is the saying I keep saying, “This too shall pass.” I hope you are not in pain over the loss of wisdom or the fire alarm bells either.

    • The bummer about that saying is that many things don’t. Oh, well, that’s life. My tooth has calmed down, but will meet its maker on Tues. I have more pain right this moment in my back from exercising. Argh. My summer project of getting in better shape is killing me. I need your wiggly thing.

    Noise gets more painful the older I get. You have my sympathy with the fire bells.

    • Good grief! They were ringing every minute and sometimes more for over half an hour. Hubby finally put a towel over the one by our offices. Not fire dept. approved, I imagine.

  4. The problem with pain is that it takes me places I don’t want to go.

    Percocet and ear plugs!

    Don’t be afraid to take pain meds to knock down the pain so that it can be more manageable. If you try to “bear it” for too long it really messes with your cortisol levels (stress hormone). Knock it down then use something lighter to keep it down. Sorry you are going through it.

    • Thanks. I’m actually doing okay unless I touch it. I’ll hang in till Tuesday. I’m just afraid of dry socket like the last time. The extraction was nothing compared to that mess a couple of years ago.

    Hope you heal fast

    Hubby had dry sockets. I wouldn’t wish those on anyone! Praying all goes well this time.

    Wow I had one extraction like you years and years ago massive infection after I was P&%$#d!!! I was asleep and wanted to know what HE HAD DONE TO ME 🙂

    Well 2 years ago tired with mouth pain I sat in a care with a wonderful oral surgeon who extracted every last one of my teeth with just Novocaine. Had he sent me home with that stuff to kill tooth pain I would still have my originals 🙂 I HATE TOOTH ACHES and Ear ACHES the worst! I will say a prayer you get through this long holiday weekend as pain free as you can and be able to enjoy some food and peace and quiet. HUGS

I would love to hear from you!
