Today I had a filling done. I had called in to the dentist to inform them that I'm on the MAOI and can't have epinephrine in my numbing shots. He did research and I can have a tiny amount, so I got one shot with and one shot without. And everyone watched carefully to be sure I didn't die or anything.
It is so weird to have psych meds affect the dentist so much. But in reality they affect dental stuff about as much as anything else since my meds/dry mouth are really hard on my teeth.
Now if only the numbing would go away. I have a great Elvis sneer going. Thankfully I don't eat things that require chewing so I have been able to eat normally for me, but I do not like the sensation, especially since right now some of my nose is numb.
I left the windows open today. Bad move. My house is frigid. I have got to start checking the weather daily. I think that is the only thing I miss about TV. That and just the feeling of fitting in; it's strange when everyone at work talks about American Idol or Dancing with the Stars and I have never seen a single episode of either.
Anyway, time for more soup to try to warm up. I want to do things NOT under the covers.........
