Tooth is gone!

Recommended Posts


So today was a fun day. I have a tooth that’s been bothering me for a while. I broke it at a restaurant about 12 years ago but recently it rotted away and was causing severe pain. To the point that for the last 5 weeks I have only been able to eat on the right side of my mouth. And even with that every meal was followed by pain that I can’t even explain it was so bad. So today was extraction day. 

So at 1130 I get to the dentist. Get all checked in and I’m ready. The dentist walks in and informs me that they don’t do those extractions and I have to go elsewhere!! 5 weeks prior the same damned dentist told me to come back today to have it pulled for God’s sake. 🤬🤬🤬🤬 So home I go to try to find another dentist. 

They squeezed me in at the end of the day after hours for a consult. Yay!........ Nope. Pulling the tooth! Yikes! I have severe anxiety about this stuff. I puke sweat cry shake and freak out. Well today was no different. All out full panic attack in the surgeons office and I’m alone and scared and all messed up. 

They gave me some oxygen after that and it got me thru the procedure. But I was sick. Queezy. Dizzy. Crying. But it was closing so I had to leave. Oh and I was never gendered correctly once. Not once from anyone in the office. Which didn’t help either. 

Off to the sanctuary of my truck 3 city blocks away I go. Still crying. Walking like I need a cane or something. But finally I get there and crawl into my back seat. Time to find a ride home cause I can’t drive like this. WRONG AGAIN!! Nobody answered. For 25 minutes nothing. So there I lie crying in the midst of a panic attack and I have to drive home. So off I go. 

Slow and steady. Slower than if I was drunk. Slower than I’ve ever gone before. But I made it. And now I am home. Alone. Still crying. Still panicked. But a little music and writing this and I have finally stopped. I am calm. And soon my meds will be here I hope. Cause the surgeon said to get the Vicodin down before the end of an hour or I’ll be sorry. 

There is no point to this story. It was simply therapeutic. Today may very well be one of the worst days of my life. I’ve had arguments with every person I love, I have been screwed over, completely embarrassed, misgendered 200 times, and had to do something that for me was beyond difficult alone and I made it. I may still be on the edge of tears, hating myself, and everything else, but I’m here. Maybe tomorrow that will mean something more to me. But today I’m just so anxious lonely and depressed. 😔

I am glad to hear you made it home and was able to calm down after some time. Today hopefully showed you strong you really are. I hope that you have a speedy recovery.

I hope you are now Ok Kirsten. I hate going to the dentist too. I remember a wisdom tooth that had gone bad the same, and when they came to extract the dentist called another in as well. I wondered why it took two :unsure: I have a high pain threshold and had been eating on one side and pain for weeks so I just let them get it over with but it took some doing. I think the second dentist was there in case something went wrong as it did seem a difficult extraction.

ok, that's weirdly satisfying. i've had that feeling before, getting rid of something that hurts. i had to pull my brother's tooth out the other day, and i was still just almost sick (even though i had gloves on)

      I have my first endo appointment today. So nervous.   My wife is hoping they will find something wrong with me and that I won’t be eligible for HRT. She is still very much against anything that even hints I’m a woman. Hoping she comes around eventually, but I can’t keep going on the way I am now.    Have a a great day everyone.    *hugs*

      I still wear my breast forms whenever I feel like that I need a little help.  My natural size is a 38B and my breast forms are a B cup so it does help me when I am feeling like I need a little help.  But there are some times I sleep in my breast forms and some times I dont.   But to me it is all about comfort and how realistic you look.   What is the difference between a Trans woman and a Cross Dresser?  The Cross Dresser can't wait to get home to put her bra ON, a Trans woman can't wait to get home and take her bra OFF.            I love Vicky's quote here and I guess that I am a Trans individual cause I will admit that I love wearing a bra but OMG it feels so good to take it off when I get home.

      A year in and I still don’t mind wearing a bra. At the start I liked the bralettes best. There still my go to for pjs on super hot nights too. Underwire isn't comfortable, but it sure does a great job of pushing everything where it belongs.  I use the little add a cup chicken cutlets still at times. Usually with something that shows a lot of cleavage cause the rest of the time I just don’t care.

      For me it’s one simple thing. No more being fake. I get to meet people and be myself. I get to dress walk talk act and be myself. That’s it.

      I am in a bit of a twighlight zone as I am not really sure if I am out or not. This is maybe partly due to not (at the moment) intending hormones, surgery or legal changes. That said I am pretty much out and relaxed in it. Yesterday I had a chance meeting with one of my partner's sisters (who knows) and her new boyfriend who she has just moved in with. Interestingly it was a good meeting quickly relaxing, although he was obviously initially surprised (actually he was so attractive I think the body language kicked in lol, a good catch for her). It is seldom, if ever, I get embarrassed when I chance meet someone I know when wearing a skirt or dress these days as it is me. A good point to me about coming out is not really having to think much about it any more.   Tracy

      I forgot to post this yesterday. I got Ma'am d. Or at least I hope it was.   I help out a lady customer with some parts. As she walked away I swore I hear her say, Thanks, Ma'am. It is my first. With my hair in a high pony tail (girl style, to keep it off my neck in the heat) and my fingernails painted + my ladies Minnie Mouse watch.   It felt good.   Kymmie
