I'm very probably getting my wisdom teeth out. The dentist hasn't said anything yet but my mouth is kind of hurting so...
but. There are some problems.
1. I faint very easily at any sight of blood. It doesn't matter how "panicky" I am, I still faint. Small cuts and nosebleeds cause me hours of being unable to clean myself up because I'm so busy teetering in and out of consciousness.
2. I also have very strong gag reflexes. I have had 20+ (I've lost count) cavities in my back teeth because I'm unable to brush them properly without vomiting.
3. My mother is unable to take care of it and there's no other person who could take care of me. My mother is unable to clean up vomit. As long as I can remember I've always had to clean up my own vomit because my mother couldn't handle it. I think when I was a baby my grandmother did it, but now she's infirm and lives thousands of miles away.
If they won't let me stay in the hospital (you know, because they need room for actual sick people) after wisdom tooth extraction, could I at least hire a nurse until I stop bleeding, like the first day? I can handle my own vomit so I can probably keep myself clean once I stop bleeding. How expensive would this be?
