I had my 4 wisdom teeth surgically removed today, possibly along with a good deal of my wisdom. It's not as bad as I thought it would be but my mouth is still numb 8 or 9 hours later so I can't feed myself properly and keep drooling everywhere. Pretty gross, and I woke up with what seemed to be tampons in my mouth and kept biting my own tongue without actually realising it was my tongue because it too had no feeling whatsoever.
But having it done under general anaesthetic was a very, very good idea. I'm so glad I didn't chicken out of that because I was worried about not waking up, since having them pulled out while awake would have really sucked. All I did was go to sleep like normal and then wake up like normal, albeit wondering where the fuck I was. And with aforementioned tampons in mouth.
I just noticed a lot of my posts have a subject line that is 'urghhhhh' or something similar.
