    Default I don't know how much more I can take.

    I try to look up a few websites about wisdom teeth extraction and by the end of a couple I'm so cold and frozen that I think my heart's stopped, it takes so long to feel just a bit better.

    Even now, hours and hours later, it feels like something's clawing into my stomach.

    It's all so, so wrong and it shouldn't be happening at all but every day it seems to be getting worse.

    Hap, ask them to sedate you totally or ask for valium in advance. Find a dentist that advertises "gentle".

    Quit looking at tooth extractions online as it sounds like it is making you really upset. Just trust in the skill of your dentist.

    hugs.

    The only bad thing that happened when my wisdom teeth got pulled is... that I apparently said something obscene to the assistant when she was helping me to my ride.

    I had all four removed in my teens. I saw an oral/maxillofacial surgeon and he was great. They knocked me out completely. That's the only way to go. Recovery eh, it wasn't pleasant but it wasn't terrible either.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    But that's like an overweight person feeling like they have to stand in the donut store to show themselves how weak they are around donuts. There are a lot of people out there who don't like "doctor related" stuff. I can kind of look at the stuff now but I still think it's pretty nasty. Like, ew, there is all this blood and flesh and crap. Nasty. I think people who like looking at it are weird, actually. I'm glad someone can do wisdom teeth extraction, but it certainly isn't me!

    Your problem may not be that things make you sick, it might be forcing yourself to focus on it and then berating yourself about it. Relax, everyone has their issues.

    Incidentally, I got put under too, I was NOT staying awake for that.

    ha ha, classic Haphazard.

    Look up Dream Moods: Common Dreams: Falling Teeth maybe its your subconscious screaming at you.

    If this issue is actually getting your wisdom teeth removed I had mine done under general anesthesia and it was like going to sleep and waking up with them gone and gums a little sore for a couple of days with hum, vicodine, to chase the blues away.
