Good luck with your wisdom tooth op. meanmistermustard  - is that tomorrow?

Hope it's way more uneventful than the last time.

Thank you for the kind remembrance. I think I posted the wrong details last time as its the 19th of September at 10am. I am not looking forward to it for two reasons a) the noises as they remove the tooth (hearing them crack the tooth is horrific and they wont allow ipods on otherwise i'd be listening to that) and b) the recovery (before the last time almost everyone I know who has had a wisdom removed kept saying "yeah its no problem, it was fine for me, eating after a few hours" etc yet afterwards they all were telling me the issues they had). Now I know better.ahdn_paul_01a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

 

 

How are you doing, meanmistermustard?

When I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled at one time, the dentist gave me some pain pills. After taking the first dose, I remember hitting the carpet in the hallway then nothing after that for 2 days. I'm not sure if I even ate during those days. I'm just glad I was at home so my mom could take care of me.

 

Thank you for asking cbatcu.heart

I survived tho they tried to cook me by wrapping me up in all manner of coverings and then putting a massive light right above me. I had to get them to stop and take it all away as it was roasting. Was so nervous beforehand but the surgeon and assistances were fantastic. Still, never want to go thru that again, the noises of the tooth cracking and the drill as well as the pressure they apply is horrid.

On a side note I would like to say that every time ive been in hospital, at the doctors or at the dentist the nurses, doctors, surgeons and every other member of staff have been amazing. Incredibly caring and warm along with a sense of humour, never met anyone dour or dreek. Instead of all these horror stories (and yes sadly they do occur) would be nice to occasionally hear the positives of the Health Care system and the members of staff. Some of the things and people they have to deal with... The one occasion I observed, it was amazing how none of the staff lost their temper and thumped the individual or smothered him with a pillow.

All this time, I thought humans only had two wisdom teeth...

If we have four, that means I still have two lurking inside my skull. 

At any rate, I had one pulled by an atrocious dentist who wrangled and wrenched with a monkey wrench like a scene out of a WC Fields movie.  The second wisdom tooth extraction by a different dentist was the complete opposite -- the dentist was amazingly gentle and I hardly felt a thing.

You must have two lurking, FP. It's two in the upper jaw, and two in the lower. Which were yours that they took out? You still have the other two somewhere.

mja -- Well, I'll be damned!  The two I had removed were in the upper set; so I guess I still have two left down below...

You can have more than 4 wisdom teeth and you don't have to have all four. From the land that is wiki

Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have fewer or more, in which case the extras are called supernumerary teeth.

Isn't the human body amazing?

I don't have any wisdom teeth. I'm missing a few others too. That explains a lot from all those times we got ''Teeth lessons'' at primary school where we had to count all of our teeth and why I always had less teeth and was all confused. Don't miss them though. Don't know any better.

Never thought people would worry about me leaving this forum. But don't worry, I won't. I just won't be on here as often anymore as I used to be. It's just that I have to get up early almost every day and then have school til 4/5/6 and then either have to read 110382928437 pages for some subject or have to go to work. I can't stay up late anymore, I'm already dead at 10 pm. I often intend to go on my laptop before sleeping but then I'm just too tired and before I know it I haven't touched my laptop in a week.

I really don't understand how people in the same situation are able to go out twice or three times a weekpaul-mccartneyGod, hear me talking. How old am I, 19 or 90? But really, I used to go out that much too, without problems and now I feel like some kind of elderly person.

While I'm still on here at 1 am right now? Have slept for 12 hours the past night and school only starts at 2 pm. Lucky meblue-meanie

I am some kind of elderly person (not sure what kind) but luckily some of us old codgers find we need less sleep than we used to :)

And don't worry; I'm sure that work, study and reading 10 zillion pages of academic snorefest would make anyone tired.

:D :D Haha yeah, try explaining that to your teachers! I'm working loads more this year than last. And I've moved to a better school, which is much harder than I thought it would be :( I've left my best friend behind, that's the hardest thing.

I know how you feel, Linde, at least to a certain extent. I'm shattered gone 9, and usually I've got a good few hours work left at that point. Forget exercising as well. I rarely have time now to go out for a long period of time. Anything else school wants to get in the way of? My social life died a while back (though, tbh, it was never really that alive to begin with). There's a girl in my class who quite studies hard and goes to 1.30 hr dance class every day. Have no idea how she does that. blue-meanie

Skin update: 2 and a half weeks have passed before I quit dairy* and good news.....I have no spots for the first time in 8 months!!! ( it's a miracle, hallelujah praise the lord)  I also started using witch hazel on my chin, nose and forehead and that helped quite a lot I believe

 

* I quit all the "whole foods" that contain dairy i.e. milk, cheese, yogurt, ice-cream etc. but foods that "contained milk" or "may contain traces of milk" (such as curry powder etc.) were eaten.

I'm doing face work in December so at least I'll look the part and not be some spotty teenager... a-hard-days-night-paul-10

I've moved your post to here Katie as it seemed more appropriate. The 'eating' thread has turned out to get derailed quite a bit. I know that's where the original post is, but you should continue the conversation here, I think. apple01apple01

So, great news that your skin is so much better! Maybe I should try it. It'll be difficult though, I already don't eat meat and fish, and avoid bread, eggs, potatoes and general ''unhealthy'' foods as much as possible. There will be nothing left I do eat at this rate!

Edit: Btw, I meant to ask. Have you noticed any side effects, like fatigue or something? Just want to work out if this is a good idea for me or not.

I do not like Halloween, and my neighbors have had their Halloween decorations up for a week already.

Already? What is it with everyone putting decorations up so long before the day. My sister works at Selfridges (department store in the UK), and she had to go into work at the weekend to get the Christmas stuff put up. It's still September! Seems so pointless to me. It's not just the shops though, she said she sold 65+ cards the other day. What is it with people?
