TOOHACHE AND PAIN


MY DENTIST SAID THIS WAS THE LARGEST ABSCESS HE HAD EVER SEEN ON THE ROOT OF ONE TOOTH! HE SAID A FEW MORE DAYS, AND IT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE SERIOUS. LIKE, IN THE HOSPITAL SERIOUS. I'M SO THANKFUL I CALLED AND ASKED FOR THE ANTIBIOTIC, AND HAVE SUCH A WONDERFUL WIFE, THAT WENT AND PICKED IT UP WITH ME!

THANK GOD FOR THE PAIN MEDS!!!!- THE PAIN MEDS WERE ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! I DIDN'T EVEN GET TO ENJOY THEM- LOL!!!

BUT YOU KNOW WHAT?
INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING, I'M PURPOSELY GOING TO CHOOSE TO BE THANKFUL THAT THIS HAPPENED! THANKFUL I HAVE A DENTIST I CAN GO TO. A PHARMACIST THAT CAN GIVE ME AN ANTIBIOTIC TO CLEAR UP THE INFECTION. THE PAIN IS ALREADY MINIMAL SINCE THE ROOT CAUSE OF THE INFECTION IS GONE!!!  THANKFUL I LIVE IN A COUNTRY WHERE THESE SERVICES ARE SO READILY AVAILABLE, BUT SO OFTEN TAKEN FOR GRANTED!

THANKFUL I HAD SOME MONEY TO GET THE MEDS, AND A FRIEND WHO WILL WORK WITH ME ON PAYMENTS FOR THE EXTRACTION-----(BUT I'LL BET HE WILL ACCEPT THE INSURANCE PAYMENT AND WRITE OFF THE DIFFERENCE.  I AM SO BLESSED!!

LET'S ALL TAKE ONE MINUTE TODAY- AND NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS, NO MATTER HOW BAD THE CIRCUMSTANCES APPEAR:  LET'S CHOOSE, TO LOOK AT A NEGATIVE SITUATION IN A POSITIVE LIGHT IF AT ALL POSSIBLE!!!!! 

LET'S LOOK AT SOMETHING THAT IS NOT AS PLEASANT OR AS GOOD AS WE THINK IT SHOULD BE, AND PURPOSE TO CHANGE OUR- "B"- ATTITUDES, OR OUR APPROACH THAT SITUATION/ PERSON(S)! 

LET'S BE A BLESSING WHEREVER AND TO WHOMEVER WE CAN, AND BLOW THEM AWAY WITH A LOVING SPIRIT! I KNOW IT'S EASIER SAID THAN DONE.....BUT TOGETHER WE CAN!

LET'S FIND SOMETHING POSITIVE, OR GOOD TO SAY ABOUT IT/THEM,  INSTEAD OF COMPLAINING!

THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO DO NOT EVEN HAVE ACCESS TO A DENTIST, OR EVEN IF THEY DO--THE MONEY TO PAY FOR IT; EVEN IF IT WILL TAKE A WILE! AT LEAST HE WILL WORK WITH ME ON IT! I AM SO BLESSED ALSO- TO HAVE A WIFE TO GO TO THE STORE AND TAKE CARE OF ME AS WELL!

IT'S GREAT TO HAVE A PARTNERSHIP/SPOUSE, YOU CAN COUNT ON!

WELL-- NIGHTERS, I'M GOING TO TRY AND GET SOME SLEEP!

I LOVE YOU ALL- AND LET'S PURPOSEFULLY MAKE OUR ATTITUDES A LITTLE BRIGHTER TODAY- IN SPITE OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES. MAYBE WE CAN BE THERE FOR SOMEONE WHO IS A LITTLE DOWN..... AND JUST GIVE THEM AN EAR, OR A SHOULDER! YOU GUYS HAVE CERTAINLY DONE THAT FOR ME!!

  1. As someone who has battled teeth problems for a long time, I can tell you that people do die from dental issues...yes we are very blessed to have someone to go to for this.

  2. Considering that you were probably unconcious for this event, did the dentist remember to zip your pants back up when he was done with you ?
