Aggghh !!

Aggghh !!

During the night my sleep was disturbed
No noise around, not even a word.
My body said, some thing was not right
My mouth was throbbing all through the night.
I woke this morning and what was unveiled?
"Oh gawd blimey, an abscess", I yelled!

Why do these things always happen when there is a holiday and doctors, dentists, chiropractors etc are closed?

Now I have to wait till Tuesday πŸ™

    OH NO! Horrors! But you certainly have a positive attitude to construct such a clever little poem from a very painful happening. Have you got anything to calm the pain? I hope I hope you do!

    Oh dear PollyPie, what a damned mess,
    The pain and discomfort caused through your abscess,
    And to whom do you turn, to no one I fear,
    Only the painkillers can help you my dear,
    But the docs will soon open, and meds he will give,
    To clear the infection, and again you will live,

    Wow Polly! I’m so sorry. I feel your pain. You don’t have a emergency med place? Maybe you could go to the emergency room and get an on call doc to prescribe something for pain till the dentist office opens. Do you have any friends who can share some novocaine drops? I do feel for you.

      Thanks jsmile. I found an old bottle of antibiotics in the cupboard!!! Yeah I know I shouldn’t, but I did. I took some to see if they had any power left in them.

    PolliePie, I am so sorry about your problem. Please try googling emergrncy dental care. My dentist takes emergency calls and advertises in the phone directory. Use Listerine mouth wash. It is very effective in killing bacteria.The dentist just told me this, when I had an infection. He also prescribed antibiotics.
    I just googled home remedies and it said totakeibuprophen to relieve pain and swelling. It also recomends salt and vinegar.
    DENTISTS should be available to you. This is terrible, if they are not.

      Thank you Rose. It was the Listerine that I was looking for, and found it. πŸ˜€ PLUS (okay I know this is naughty but ….. ) I found a bottle of OLD antibiotics about 4 years old, and took double dose yesterday, and this morning its slightly better, and there is enough to last a few days.
      It was really great to hear everyones tips. Thank you all πŸ˜€
