I am, as we speak, cutting my wisdom tooth. Again.
The cashier at Trader Joe’s put it best when he said “Every six month is indescribable pain, then it goes away and you forget to deal with it.” Basically. In the end, though, he opted to have his pulled out to end the cycle. I don’t have insurance, so I get to lie around writhing in pain.
I’m really glad I was a baby last time and don’t remember this, because it absolutely SUCKS. I’ve been taking fistfuls of Advil, squirting Orajel into my mouth, and downing both with big gulps of cheap wine just to dull the pain. You know it’s bad when you look at chewing toys intended for babies and think “Maybe – just maybe – that’s not a half-bad idea.”
29 and still teething.
