Burning! Hellfires! Of! Rage!  
So I went to work, but left early to go get a second opinion on the whole WISDOM TEETH OF DOOM scenario. The GOOD part is that apparently my oral surgeon is the best in the biz for stuff like this, and that she didn't screw up. The BAD news is that there's nothing anybody can do and APPARENTLY I'm to expect this to continue for another month, and that they were kinda surprised that after "only three weeks" I was bothering them. HELLO, PEOPLE, I NEED TO ATTEND WORK TO PAY FOR FOOD, and literally nobody suggested it might take this long to recover before going in for surgery, and so it's really ANNOYING of you to start acting all "I told you so" NOW.

So now I've been demoted from "medical freak of nature" according to Doctor 1 to "whiny impatient child" by Doctor 2. (No, no, he was nice about it. He said it was very diligent of me to seek out a second opinion, but really, I should trust the expert -- my original doctor -- and that I either need to be patient or have Doc #1 do painful things to try and make everything bleed more. BECAUSE MORE PAIN IS WHAT I NEED, KTHANX.)

And I don't get any more pain meds, still. People, I DON'T CARE right now if I get addicted or my liver explodes! Just give me a patch or something!

Now I will Work From Home for a while and therefore feel like half of a useful human being.

p.s. Don't tell me to Calm Down. I have been calm enough! I'm hoping my RAGE will carry me through the next MONTH WTF!

Be Rage!

Err, that doesn't sound right, but you know what I mean. ;)

And you are totally not a whiny person (or anything like that) for getting a second opinion. Anyone in your position would have done the same thing. But I'm so, so sorry your wisdom teeth extraction has become an ordeal of DOOM. :( *HUGS*

Actually, I feel a bit better since raging. Endorphins, or something? I should have done this weeks ago!

*hugs you back* It's kind of a ridiculous ordeal. It has allowed me to catch up on TV-watching, though...? Oy.

Rage is always good. Always. (I realise that might not sound particularly healthy, but it's true!)

And your doctor should totally not be allowed to call you whiny and impatient if you're in pain - it's just not right.

Plus, yay for Jake 2.0 - just going to watch the pilot ep now and I'm so very excited!!

You know what's worse? After the pain is goine, the stupid holes in the back of your gum doesn't close up until 6 months later! I remember getting food stuck in them all the time. Such a pain. I'm so not look forward to getting my other two wisdom teeth out. Damn evolution! :(

I think we need some love from Trevor Hale. ;)

Things will not calm down, Little Red. They will, in fact, calm up.

Rage is good for the soul! ♥
