pain



in disguise...

I had an odontectomy last September 22. It took 3 hours to slice my gums, cut some bones just to take that historical impacted wisdom tooth and stitched the gums. It was a shocking experience. I never had a surgery in my entire life. Even I’ve been in and out from the hospital on my younger years; I never experienced being stitched wide awake…. Good Lord I survived the three-hour ordeal..

I thought I’ll be having a trip to heaven that day. The doctor even prayed before the procedure. God knows how scared I was. I feel so blessed of having a surgeon like her.

While trying to recuperate, for a few days I watched some movies, anime and tv series… one of those was House M.D. these lines caught my attention, on Season 1- Episode 9:

John Henry Giles: How many of those pills you take in?
Dr. House: I’m in pain.
John Henry Giles: Aren’t we all?

*John is an outgoing patient and Dr. House is a pain reliever dependent due to his leg injury. He feels pain most of the time.

OMG. You watch "House"? I freaking love that show-- I have all four seasons on DVD. OMG. OMG. OMG.

Hahaha. And yes, House and his pill popping of a dozen or so Vicodin. LMAO.

And wisdom teeth...ugh. I remember the pain earlier this year back in January. All four taken out...and oh God, the pain.
