Confession: I still have all of my wisdom teeth.
I have been very fortunate in my life to never have a hospital visit, minor surgery, broken bone, or general emergency. I haven’t thrown up in over 12 years. I am not a sickly person, and for that, I am so thankful. It has, however, crippled me with fear, knowing that in a few short weeks, I will be stuck with an IV and will have my wisdom teeth extracted from my mouth. Y’all, I am TERRIFIED.
I had my consultation this morning. I’m sure the doctor could see the fear in my eyes, but he was very nice, and patient. He went over the entire procedure with me. But even when he told me that looking at my x-ray there was nothing to worry about, I was, and am, still worried.
So…if you see me between now and the 26th (when I go in to have them removed), just give me a little nod or a hug and tell me things are going to be fine. I don’t want to hear horror stories. Until then, only happy thoughts.
