A drugged up chipmunk.


I had my wisdom teeth removed on Thursday. All four of them. To say I look pretty unattractive right now is an understatement. I have swollen, bruised up cheeks (seriously, I bruise like a peach and the surgery has me sporting some lovely black, blue, green and yellow bruises on my face), dry lips (because it hurts too much to open my mouth to put chapstick on), eyebrows that need to be waxed (because I had an appointment for Saturday but there is NO WAY IN HELL I'll go to the mall looking like this), and an overall drugged up look to my face.
I don't think I've ever been in so much pain and I'm so annoyed that I've had to stay in bed for 5 days straight. I can't eat anything that's not "soft and mushy" (i.e: ice cream, mashed potatoes, soups, yogurt, jello) which was fine for the first two days but now I'm craving real food. I tried to eat some pasta but was rudely awakened when the pain it caused me made me cry. Like my mom so eloquently put it "You know it's bad when she refuses to eat pasta."
The only upside to this whole ordeal was the fact that I got 3 days off work (Thursday, Friday and Monday) and that I've been laying (lying?) around watching mindless and nerdy TV. Hello "Toddlers and Tiaras" and "Gangland". Oh, and I also became very close friends with about 10 Lifetime movies. My mom has been pretty great too. She took Thursday and Friday off to go to surgery with me and to take care of me and to "just be here in case you need me". Moms > anyone else in the world. She's put up with my whining, my crying, my food demands, my medicine schedule and my need of hugs and kisses ha ha. God, my mom is a saint. Maybe I should bake her a cake. From scratch. Or cookies. From the store.
Other than that, I got calls and texts from random people and a visit from my two girl coworkers. I should just stop calling them coworkers and go right ahead and call them my friends. Did you know there was a time in my life when I had ONE friend? Seriously. Just one. My BFF. She was it. The weird thing is that I kinda sorta didn't want to be friends with her anymore but couldn't bring myself to break it up because then? I would have NO friends. Things kept getting better and better in the friend department, though. Now I have a BAZILLION friends (not really, more like 10) and it's really nice.
In guy news, guess who keeps calling and texting and generally bothering me even though I told him a million times to stop? Yup. My ex. Also, there's two new guy prospects that I need to tell you about.
Tomorrow, though. Right now, I need to take my old friend Oxycodone and pass the hell out.

Damn girl! I hope you feel better and start looking like your fabulous self soon!
BTW I freakin LOVE Gangland!! I too just got into it. Have you seen the one about the Gotti Boys from New Orleans? I couldn't believe HOW CRAZY that was! How after Katrina they all moved to Houston and brought their crime rate up double digits.
I hear mindless tv.

Ugh. I had mine removed about 2 years ago and it was AWFUL. Good thing my mom also got hers removed the same day so we coud complain and cry and whine together.

Oxy & my mom were the only things that got me through my wisdom teeth surgery. My dad pitched in and got me movies from BB, which I don't remember...but it passed the time.

Chicken parm was the food I craved. I forced myself to eat some because I was tired of ice cream.

Oh, fuccckkk meee, I'm pretty sure I'm going to need my wisdom teeth out within the next 6 months or so. With that said, what you just described (your face) sounds something like my worst nightmare. Your mom sounds more like a dream **sigh. Having one of those qtpie love moms when you're..bedridden (haha) is so crucial. My mom is such a bitch normally, and then suddenly when I get sick she's knocking on my door every two seconds, making me food, bringing me vitamins(L), even showing affection!!!!!
I will also say that the best part of being sick is just as you said: having an excuse to watch mindly and nerdy tv shows. I've never seen Toddlers and Tiaras or Gangland but I kind of want to know more... the world of child pageants is so warped/disgusting, yet so intriguing...

oh ouch.I remember that experience.Well most of it, I was on drugs for about three weeks...lol

Get better!!

Sabina said...

This just reminds me of how my mom took care of me when I got all four wisdom teeth taken out! I convinced her to rent movies for me (which I was way too drugged up to remember) and make me chocolate mousse.

((hi - new - like the blog))

Oh dear Lord - I'm sorry, I'm still haunted by getting mine out.

Yay for fun drugs, though.

I've been going through the same thing with friends! Something in the air.

Therapeutic Ramblings said...

Long time no blog!

Hopefully you are out for spring break, as it is getting much more fun down here now.
