i heart painkillers

my left lower wisdom tooth has launched a surprise attack on me.

if, by surprise, i mean the naive way in which i have ignored the rise and fall of this impacted molar chewing its way through my flesh and bone for the past four years can no longer be sustained.

yesterday, it ached.

last night... it still hurt, and the tissue surrounding it had become irritated.

today... i suspect it might have abscessed as the pain now reaches from the side of my neck, through my jaw, in my mouth, and up to my ear, and there is a shocking amount of swelling.

FUCK YOU WISDOM TOOTH! you couldn't have waited the remaining 8 weeks until my benefits kicked in?!

this is all rather gross, and i feel the need to state that my dental hygiene has always been fastidious and exemplary- i've never even had a cavity!

as i have no benefits, and at this point, no money - i am going to take some painkillers, some gauze filled with salt shoved at the back of my jaw, and go to sleep.

when i wake up, it will either be better, or will qualify for the emergency room - in which case medicare will pay for it.
