Wisdom Teeth Extraction + Vegan Curiosity?

All 4. 2 impacted. Fun! 😉 I got them removed on Monday morning. I was a nervous wreck. I have always had a fear of dentists, of surgery, and of anesthesia…so you mix all 3 together and let’s just say it was a good thing they had me take a tranquilizer the night before and an hour before. I somehow was composed enough that when I went into the surgery room, I said,”I forgot to brush my teeth this morning, is there somewhere I can brush my teeth?“. They said it was fine, but that there was a bathroom at the end of the hall that I could use. I walk almost drunkily to the bathroom and look around. There’s the toilet. There’s the sink. There’s the mirror. No toothbrush. No toothpaste. Oh, snap. In my drowsy state, I had assumed they would have some in there since they told me I could brush my teeth in the bathroom. Instead of walking back in and requesting a toothbrush and toothpaste, I decided I was much too tired to care and simply said, “Oops, I forgot my toothbrush.” Yeah, like I didn’t realize before walking to the bathroom that I didn’t even bring one with me. I’m so clever. I proceeded to lie down in the chair.

I began to panic once they started strapping me in, as if I was in some insane asylum. “This is for this”, “This is for that”…oh gosh. This is actually happening. My surgeon rolled up my sleeve and inserted something into my arm. I asked what it was and he said it was what was going to put me to sleep. Just before I had time to freak out about it, I remember suddenly being in a dream. A few seconds later, I remember a yellow room. Blur. My boyfriend on my right and a woman on my left. I remember talking to them, but I don’t remember what I said. I thought it was a dream, but apparently, it was me coming out of anesthesia. The next hour also felt like a dream. Wheelchair. Gauze out of my mouth. Why is my lip like this? We’re at CVS. My dad is on the phone saying I’m being difficult. I’m laughing. I feel high. I’ve never been high before, am I high? I’m home. I’m taking my meds. I feel more high. Wow my lip is fat.
