Wow i was in the pet store today and a lady wanted to buy a large number of birds and fish the guy was asking questions to find out how big her aviary/cage and tanks were. Nooe this lady wanted to release the birds into her trees and put the fish in the river she didn t realise that the birds would just fly away and the fish would swim away she really thought that the fish and birds would hang around the area of her house plus its illegal to release exotic species into the wild. She was so upset and started crying i felt so sorry for her.

I also need to get my wisdom teeth out at the end of the month. I can't even go there because it terrifies me too much.

Ugh, I hope the antibiotics kick in quickly so you aren't in so much pain.

Ugh Velcro. I hope that your antibiotics start working quickly so the pain isn't as bad. Tooth pain is the worst. I never understand how such huge pain can be crammed into such a little area. Hugs if wanted.

Depending on what they're doing, it could be worth calling to see if you have to reschedule. I think for some things, they would just need to make a note if you didn't fast.

No word from my bosses yet about the possible promotion. I'm thinking no news is good news. (At least they didn't come right out and say no.) They are on vacation right now but I know they are workaholics so I am 99% sure they got my email of me putting in for the position. But since they are on vacation, I am not anticipating getting any sort of response this week. I'm just kind of on pins and needles. I'm always so bored at work. A new challenge would be good. I think I'm up for the task.

Speaking of being bored, I am so bored at work right now. I'm like, hmmmm. What is there to do. Twiddle my thumbs. Or work on that horrible scanning project.

thanks guys. google told me that salt water rinses helps with the pain, and it was miraculous! the pain is 90% gone. But I still need to get my wisdom teeth taken out at the end of the month. I can't even think about that right now, way too terrified.

See if you can get conscious sedation or general anaesthesia?

I told the dentist I've ptsd and would like certain accommodations. He agreed and noted non judgementally that my dental anxiety was off the charts and obvious during scaling and polishing.

Since he said I needed an oral surgeon anyway due to badly impacted wisdom teeth, he put that in my referral memo.

The oral surgeon did a quick check and basically said general anaesthesia. Recovery after GA was way harder than my fears of never waking up after being put under, tbh.

Took me a week to recover after having all 4 wisdom teeth removed though! Reddit's r/wisdomteeth is friendly.

As for the bill...well...it was high... but I figure it'd cost more over time if I kept ignoring my wisdom teeth or cracked teeth due to teeth grinding in my sleep. Happened to a friend - 2 cracked teeth.

I managed to get help from my sister (she's got a wealthy husband) for the copay after deductions from my 'insurance' account. (Don't know how to explain it without revealing my country.) As I couldn't afford the copay.
