I'm having a pity party and you're invited!

So the weather this morning was utter shite, and therefore, I had a migraine...big shock. I've been up since 3:00am, took some pills and I'm feeling loopy. But instead of attempting to sleep it off, I did the most logical thing one can do with a migraine...I went to the dentist for a cleaning.

I can't say this strongly enough, this has to have been one of the stupidest things I've done when I've had a migraine. I was thinking of cancelling, but they require two days notice, or they charge you. So after they scraped and scraped and scraped, it was time for the flouride! Now normally that doesn't bother me, but along with my migraine, my TMJ was acting up as well.

But wait, there's more!

I also had to have a full set of x-rays done. No, not the usual 4-8 x-rays, this was 18...and to make matters worse, it was done by a student or new graduate (or at least that's how it seemed). She was really nervous about doing this, and I didn't want to tell her to 'stop, I'm in freaking pain here!', so I let her continue. She kept jamming those damn x-ray films in my mouth and they kept scratching the inside of my mouth...badly. But then again, I do get hypersensitive when I have a migraine.

Then came the joyous news of the bill...$271! At least we'll get some of that back with insurance. ;)

I was feeling so crappy that I ended up taking a cab home...I should have made her pay for it. :P

On the upside, however, I bought new luggage last night for my upcoming trip...and it was on sale...70% off!

Rhonda,
I'm so sorry that you have had such a nightmarish day. Going ot the dentist on a good day is bad enough, so I cannot imagine what it must have felt like with a migrain. Be good to yourself and get some rest.

Sorry...the price we pay for better oral health!

At least the luggage sounds like an awesome deal!

Wow, 70% off? That's quite a deal! Hope you feel better tomorrow.

You know, there's something wrong when you can buy two pieces of luggage (29" and 25") for half the price of going to the dentist. ;)

That's horrifying! I'm so sorry! I always get acupuncture and a chiropractic adjustment after going to the dentist! I can't stand having my mouth open that long, which is strange consider how much I talk all the time!
