our plucky heroine is doing her best to not be overwhelmed by fear/worry -
the unhappy tooth, cracked beyond hope of saving, must be pulled out of my mouth, and I have never had that done, (save the time they removed two wrong baby teeth, and I was unconscious when they did that). I keep reminding self that it is necessary. Feels so scary.
And feels so weird to willingly? choose to do something that I know will hurt, because the alternative is worse. Currently waiting for the dental school referral to work through the different offices and call me so I can make an appointment. At least the actual tooth removal will be covered by OHP, though any further repairs will not be.
