A week with toothache

October 29, 2011

 Contributed by Maria Larson

I have been struggling with a toothache all week, which has drained my energy completely! It is my wisdom tooth that is causing me trouble, and it has been going on for over a week now. I went to the dentist yesterday though, and he gave me antibiotics for the inflammation I have. Basically the reason for my problems is that I don’t have enough space back there, which makes the tooth rub against my gums. I will probably end up pulling it once the inflammation has gone down. I’m not excited about it, but I think it is for the best because this week has been terrible! I have barely been able to eat, plus I have been hurting, and it has not been a good combination. No painkillers works either, so I hope this penicillin will have some effect soon!

Now I have to get ready for bed. We have an open house at the college tomorrow, which we call Fall Inside Look Day. I am excited to meet some new prospective students, and it is always fun to work with the staff in the admission office. Hopefully it isn’t going to be too cold either. If you are not coming tomorrow, I hope you check out some of our other open houses that we have coming up!
