Blessed Sleep

I'm a person who normally goes to bed around 2 am and wakes up at 6 am -- and that's on a good night. I don't suffer from insomnia (give me a pillow anytime, anywhere and I am asleep); I suffer from don't want to miss a thing in life. Like Puffy always says, "You can sleep when you're 6 feet under".

Enter: the ROOT CANAL.

I had a root canal on Thursday and I've been in pain every since. (Sweet Lord, deliver me.) Vicoden, Tylenol 3, Motrin, Advil, and antibiotics have been my best friends. But the only thing I really really want is a good 8 -12 hours of uninterrupted sleep. After I am all healed, I promise myself that I'm going to start going to bed at a decent time like everyone else in my household!

I'm getting better and I'll be back when all is well. But for now...

  1. whew chile! i feel your pain. its nothing worse than healing from oral surgery...keep those meds near my dear!

  2. @ Smokie I suffer from the same thing LOL...I never want to miss a thing so I average about 5 hours of sleep a day, but I hope your tooth feels better

  3. Take your time to recovery & rest. I absolutely hate the dentist due to some childhood horor stories. Hope you feel better soon.

  4. I had a root canal but, for some reason, I felt no pain specialist must have been really good! Hopefully, you get better :)

  5. Apparently, my infection is in my jaw bone and now I'm on steroids. Well, at least I feel better.... back to sleep! :-)


Just say what you feel!
