Went to the emergency room for the first time last night. :-(
Around 5 last night… a molar on my right side started to hurt. I tried to ignore it.. but it just got worse, and worse… and WORSE.
By around 10 I’m about to go to bed… when it just hits me. I couldn’t even think or function it hurt so bad.
So I looked up at home remedies online to get me through the night. I tried EVERYTHING. Tooth paste, mouth wash, salt water, baking soda, vanilla extract… and finally GARLIC. I chewed on garlic! It was AWFUL.
And none of it helped. So out of desperation, Chris took me to the ER. I just could not sit through the night with that pain.. it would have been torture. :-(
They gave me some pain meds and antibiotics (because it is most likely an infection).
And I am calling my insurance company today so I can find a dentist near me.
I have the best friends and boyfriend in the world.
Long story short. Yesterday I was having a terrible day at work. I didn’t sleep well the night before and was so mentally and physically exhausted from my rough school week. I even tried to get the night off… and basically begged to be sent home as early as possible.
I get home and open the door, and I look and I see the table is set with four plate settings… confused, I go to ask my boyfriend (Chris), why they were there… and OUT POPS MY BEST FRIEND, SARAH, AND HER BOYFRIEND (ALSO MY BEST FRIEND), DAMIEN. With pink flowers and cookies in hand. AT 10:00 AT NIGHT.
They all baked cookies and cooked me dinner all day, and had been planning this for weeks.
Sarah and Damien drove over an hour one way to get here… just so they could surprise me and spend just two hours with me. (We were all SO exhausted and they left around 12:15)
When they popped out I burst into tears.. sobbing…
I have never been surprised like that before in my life. It is one of the most wonderful things anyone has ever done for me.
I am just so damn lucky. I don’t have many close friends. I have Chris (boyfriend), Sarah, Damien, and a handful of good friends who I never get to see.
Is this the real life?
