I'm usually not this much of a sissy when it comes to pain, but when it's in my mouth...all bets are off. Happy to report that the medication, despite the side effects, has been exceptionally helpful. If the pain stays away after I go off them next week, then we're all good. Hurray! If it doesn't then it looks like I'm getting this filling taken out and a new one put in. ...hurray?
Either way this will all be behind me very soon and I'll never have to draw myself in a bunny suit ever again.
