Good to hear you got it fixed Poly!

Sorry about having been a bit quiet: BF came over on Thursday and he has only just left, so I had 4 days to enjoy him.

Will going back to work still involve social distancing?

Things havenít changed that much here. We still canít go swimming because the poolís not going to bother opening for a maximum of ten people - same with restaurants. Weíre having a family get together Sunday for the first time in a while.

It probably will involve that. Today I had a training with about 8 colleagues. Two were at work and there wre 2 chairs between them, one on the far left and the other on the far right of the screen. There's not going to be many colleagues either but it's been so great even watching them on the screen. (highlight was one of our seniors had an attention seeking cat walking through the screen and giving headbutts.)

Dad found a huge bug in the shower, which turns out to be a common cockchafer. Also learnt that up until the middle of the 20th century these critters were being eaten in France and Germany, they were cooked in broth to make cockchafersoup.

Had wisdom tooth pulled. At the moment I cannot speak so I write a lot to compensate :)

My teeth had been giving me problems since my last oral hygienist appointment - culprit after much unnecessary pain turned out to be the wisdom tooth on one side. It had always been a problem since it came in bent and the area around it was sensitive. Since that treatment, when my butcher spent a good five minutes pulling at that tooth, I had been having an insane amount of sensitivity.

Last night was especially bad - the APC I had taken last night at 11 didn't work. At 12:30 I walk around a bit to cool down, but it doesn't help. I put on a CD for two nice mellow tunes, but the rest that gave me is gone.
At 1:30 I take a sip of water and rinse it in my mouth. It cools somewhat but half an hour later the effect is gone. I think about taking more painkillers but I don't want to exceed the dose. Instead I slap petroleum jelly on the sore spots.
2:30: I rinse my mouth and lie on my bedroom floor. As I'm lying on my back the stress on my teeth relieves somewhat but as soon as I turn my head it's back.
3:30: I rinse and drink a little. I rub Sensodyne onto the sore spots. Again I lie on the bedroom floor.
4:00: I give in and take an extra dose of paracetamol
4:05: Pain is so much relieved that I wish I'd taken them earlier
4:15: Pain is back.
4:20: I go to the bathroom, wash hands, drink, fill my water bottle and head for the CD player for some mellow songs. Occasionally I rinse water in my mouth which seems to ease the pain.
4:50: Done listening, back to bed
I spent the next two hours tossing until my alarm goes. First I set it to 7:30, then to 8:00 . I get out just before 8 . As I walk down I notice today's the day the trash is collected, so I but the garbage outside. Then I call the dentist and my team manager at work to explain: she thinks its best I take sick leave because I didn't sleep at all. Appointment is set at 10. I check news and toss spam, then I call my boyfriend. It's hard. Often during the night and morning I break down in tears because the pain is so bad.
At 9:00 I clean my teeth, way too early I go to the dentist. Aside from hand sanitizer there's the guideline that max 4 people are allowed in the waiting room - something the clients don't heed much. I fill in a form about Corona, answering questions like "do you have Corona?" "Do you have cold symptoms?"
The last question is "Are you feeling well and healthy?" To me the answer is no, I'm in agony and didn't sleep, but that's tooth related, so I enter yes. When it's finally my turn I hand in the form. Dentist assistant sees it's really the wisdom tooth causing the problem. My dentist will be able to pull it straight away. She gives me anaesthesia, lets me sit in the waiting room, ten minutes later I'm called back in to good ol' Leo, my dentist of 30 years. After small talk he grabs his grips, says "I need to feel how your tooth moves," I feel some painful cracks, he says "It's loose already", grabs another tool and pulls it out. That took all of two minutes!

I'm flabbergasted, it seems like ten months of agony are ended with a few seconds of work. Under other circumstances I could've hugged him but it's all about keeping distance nowadays, so I bow to him, I'm so rediculously happy.

So now it's biting gauze and waiting, but for now I don't feel any pain, just a bit nausea from anaesthetic and sleep deprivation.

I hope so. I still have some minor pains that are unfortunately similar to the ones I've had in the past 10 months.

Was a bit of a shame that I couldn't visit my BF but on the other hand it's been nice to have some time to myself. Took a lot of jigsaws to the second-hand shop. They had a lot of metal albums this time around, Biohazard and other stuff that my sister has, so I left it there.
