Before and now

Saturday, November 09, 2013

BEFORE(about 2 years ago) I could have written something like this:
Seen my dentist today, my tooth has been hurting for 3 or 4 days now.
It hurts from time to time, but I take a pain pill and it doesn't hurt on the next day.
This time I'm in pain for quite sometime, I take pain pill and it stops for 8 to 10 hours.
So, I decided it's time to go to the dentist, he cleared my tooth but pretty much did nothing.
He sent me home and told me to come back in a week.
It is so frustrating, I put so much effort into this.
I dressed up, found semi clean cloths. I tied my shoes. I broke sweat before leaving home.
My cloths feels so uncomfortable. I paid for the taxi twice.
Now I'm back home, tooth starts to heart again, I've spent money, had crazy uncomfortable day. I've ordered pizza and took another pill, will be much better soon.

Seen my dentist today, my teeth don't heart, but require a lot of work, so I've started recently.
I had an appointment at 3 pm, it's about 10 minutes to dentists' office, but I left home at 2 pm to have a little walk before. I made huge zigzags to make 10 minutes into 55 minutes LOL:)
He checked what changed in a week and decided to wait another week and then take care of another tooth.
I was really excited to get something done today with my tooth, but I'm not in a hurry.
But it was plenty of good news:
1. My tooth is healing nicely, one more week is just a precaution
2. I had an extra hour free so I walker to the train station instead of straight back home
3. I can do my strength training today, was planning to cancel cause after dantist procedures you better not do any heavy lifting.
4. I get to eat leftover meat from yesterday, it's very tasty and after dentist eating isn't really pleasant, so I don't usually eat much.
My plan was ruined, but it feels like it turned out even better then I planned:)

So, basically the same event - failed dentist visit is now a completely different experience for me. Before I would be depressed, and maybe even stay depressed for a week.
Now, well, lets say it's a bit different:) And those turkey cubes, they are so good!
