I sat fidgeting with a thread on my sleeve and tried not to make eye contact.

He had a kind voice and was thorough explaining what was going to happen.

He paused and waited for me to nod that I was ready.

His hands were large and moved skillfully.

I focused on a point on the wall and became numb to the pain.

He noticed me jump as I started feeling it again.

"We're almost done," he said.

He finished what he was there to do despite my squirming.

I could tell this was going to be sore for days.

I made it through. Fucking root canals.

LOL! You totally had me going.

I am not a fan of the dentist...fucking sadists.

Very, very clever. You totally had me fooled.

Root canal. Ouch.

Well done.

Oh! Ouch.. I hate root canals! Have had several :(

Hope it's all done with now. Are you getting a crown over it? Yuck, mine took forever on the fitting!

BAWHAHAHA!!!! That was excellent!

I'm sorry you had to go through that, though.


Erica said...

HA! Good setup! :-D

Sorry about the root canal, though. Been there, and they suck. My tooth had four branches instead of the usual three -- lucky me!!

Hope you feel better soon.

Oh ouch! I want to make you some homemade applesauce or something.

Hang in'll be better in a few days.

It's just NOT FAIR if we can enjoy one kind of pain we should be able to enjoy (or at least tolerate) other types better.

Glad it's over though,

LOL. Very clever.

Hope you feel better today.

@SpankCake, I know a lot of people who are terrified of doctors, but dentists are SO much worse!

@joey, Ouch is right!

@Emi Jones, Yes, I need to make an appointment to do that within a month since it's just a temporary filling now. The fun never ends!

@Regan, It wasn't QUITE as bad as I expected.

@Erica, Another commonality! It was a big molar so had 4 canals and they had to fuck with all of them.

@Susie, That sounds lovely. I can email my mailing address for the applesauce delivery. ;-)

@PK, Oh how I wish I had a high tolerance for all of it!

@ronnie, It wasn't terrible today. Maybe by tomorrow I can chew things!

(Hm-- I just noticed the other remarks-- I thought this was a fictional joke?? Did you really have one?? I hope next time you get a better doc-- I've had four and hardly felt a thing!)

Fondles said...

I had one of those recently. I have never been in so much pain ever in my life. After the injections wore off, I wanted to die.

Lea said...

@Jean, It is getting better. Sore, but not terrible. Thanks.

@Dave Wolfe, Yep, I really had one. It wasn't bad until the end when the numbing stuff was starting to wear off. Guess if I ever need another one, I'll tell them to double the dose!

@Fondles, Thanks for reading!

@Adriane, It started to really throb towards the end. After the first day it hasn't been as bad as I expected though.
