My mouth hurts like hell today. I woke up with the whole left side of my face throbbing around 5am, took an aleve, smeared some lidocaine gel on my wisdom tooth, and then took two Excedrin migraine before I got to class. It's not even the tooth itself that hurts, it's the area right behind it. Breakfast was an Atkins shake because the thought of chewing made me want to double over in pain. Guess I'm going to the store after class so I can have soup for lunch. It's so weird to me that all of this pain came on so suddenly.

I'm going to call the dentist that's across the street from my house after I'm done with school and make an appointment. I'm a bit worried because I'm hurting so bad, but I probably won't be able to get them taken out for another two weeks, not until after finals are over at least. I don't want to be super drugged or in pain while I'm trying to get through exams.

I'm still on my mom's dental insurance, so I'm hoping and praying that they'll pick up most of the cost. I'm ready to get these suckers the hell out of my mouth.
