I spent last night in agony. Why? Because a filling came loose and got infected that’s why. Now… my last visit to the dentist was because a tooth had split and become infected to the point where the gum above it had ballooned. Unfortunately, the dentist i visited didn’t beleieve the tooth had split, cut a nice slice through my lip, drilled a large hole in the back of the tooth and shoved a load of crushed up stuff into the gap to ease the pain. Then they told me to gargle salt water. It worked… sort of. And i’m thinking right now that i might have visited some fancy new age herbalist dentist by accident, although it seemed like a normal dentists at the time. Needless to say that tooth continued to split and now only half of it remains.
But anyway… that was that tooth. This is another. Another that no matter what i do the filling always seems to make a break for freedom. Don’t ask me why but it probably involves a deluded dental conspiracy to squeeze money out of people by sticking in dodgy fillings. That’s another rant entirely… anyway… after spending a sleepless night with no painkillers around, no 24 hour pharmacy nearby and a mouth being attacked by large mallet weilding gorillas from the inside, i visited the dentist. Not the same one mind you.
Rather than solve the problem do you know what they did? Stuck some crud in there to stop the infection spreading and prescriped me penicillin. The crud got washed away as soon as i took a drink. Shows how useful that was.
So far i’m waiting for the penecillin to kick in. No luck yet. Could be in for another night of pain. And i’ve managed to burn my tongue now as well so i’m currently experienceing the double whammy M.C Hammer of pain. Now if only someone would shout stop…
In other news i thought i’d try a new tactical approach to batting out of here. I’ve redone my CV and i’m working on a new style of cover letter. It might give me a better fighting chance now as it’s clearer and more concise. Lets hope it isn’t just all a waste of time.
Also… it got sent. Yep… you know what i mean by it. IT! We’ll wait for the results on that one though.
I’m going back to my pain right now.
See ya on the other side.
