Toothache Hell

Last weekend my tooth started hurting. Monday I found a dentist with an english website and made myself the soonest available appointment. Unfortunately that was not until Wednesday at 1:30.The pain continued to worsen. By Wednesday ,it was so bad that hubby told me to "take a taxi" to my appointment. By 11:00 that day ,I was in such agony ,I decided to go early and hope for a cancellation.I had this brilliant plan that I would take the metro to Norreport and then get a taxi from there. While standing out in the cold ,looking for a taxi the dentist called me and said "can you come a little early?"
I am on my way!

I go up to a taxi's window, I show the guy the address where I need to go and the fool tells me " oh that's not far enough for a taxi."

My ass! I then got to take my throbbing face and walk about a mile and a half,in the freezing cold wind and snow until I found the dentists office.

The dentist turns out to be this young blonde girl and she's wearing these weird "toe shoes" ,rubber shoes with seperate toes.Whatever, I would have trusted Edward Sissorhands at this point. Just make the PAIN stop!

So little girl takes an xray and tells me that I have an infection under my tooth .(ya think?)
She has the hygenist come , (this one is about 15 years old) she gouges her sharp pointy things under my tooth and then injects two syrenges of stuff under there. The first one tasted just like peroxide.

That's it. No pain pills,no antibiotics. I said "is this all, this is going to make it stop hurting?"

Apparntly so.They send me on my throbbing way.

I see a bus stop up the next block so instead of walking the mile and a half back to Norreport ,I hop on the next bus. it stops at Central Station so I think "oh,I can take the train home from there."
meanwhile,my tooth is hurting worse than ever now. I stand down on the platform ,freezing ,with my whole face throbbing as I watch the screen say the train is late. Every few minutes ,it gets later.
When I'm ready to throw myself in front of the next train,mine finally arrives.I then have to walk home from my train station.

Once home, I consult Dr.Google for "home remedies for toothache agony pain" I try all kinds of crazy concoctions. Vanilla extract,garlic,cloves,advil overdose.None of it touches the pain.

I spend the night on Nytol,wide awake ,crying with a hot sock full of raw rice on my face. The next morning I order some amoxicillion from the internet.(it'll only take 2 weeks to get here)
I call the dentist and say "whatever they did is NOT helping at all! "
"We'll have to call you back. "

Repeat day and night of increasing torturous pain.they never called me back.Yesterday,before throwing myself off the balcony,I sat in the shower with scalding water spraying at the side of my face for an hour.then called the dentist back. They said "can you come in half an hour?"

Not unless I do this. Throw hat on my wet uncombed hair,throw clothes on ,call hubby bawling and tell him to call me a taxi.

By the time I got in the dentist chair, I was sure I was going to die at any second. Little girl comes in ,in her duck shoes and after she pries my clenched hands off the chair, she gives me 2 shots ,(which do nothing) then she herself ,injects some more stuff under my tooth.It hurt SOOO bad ,I was bawling my head off.Then she gave me some pills and a prescription for antibiotics and "pain pills".

If you can call 600 mg. Motrin ,pain pills. Ha!

She then tells me "there's no charge because this is a follow up from the other day"
I must have looked really poor or she knew that they screwed up the other day.

So, I leave there looking like a bawling ,wet haired mental patient. I walk through the wind and snow to the bus stop again, this time I skip the train! I had planned on taking the bus to amergerbro and filling my prescriptions ,then taking the Metro home from there. Well, the bus stopped at Christainhaven, I saw a pharmacy right accross the street,so I got off there.I got my pills and took the Metro,then had to walk home from there. When I got home ,I heated up my rice sock and got in bed and prayed for mercy.

I am happy to report that I am now (for this moment) in a livable state of pain.Oh please ,let it be over.

I got this new baby Monday and I've been too wrecked to even touch it . I've been begging for one for 3 years!

Hopefully I'll be back to normal soon .

excuse my typos......

Happy Saturday peeps!

Dear winter, I hate you with a murderous passion.....

The wind was SOOOO F'n hideous today that I had to walk bent over at the waist to cut through it ,in order to achieve any forward movement.

The wind was stronger than I was.

Anyone blessed  (with supersonic hearing) enough to be near me ,probably heard me cussing outloud though the itchy wool hat, ear muffs and scarf ,covering my face ....pinned in place by the ear muffs.

There are no words to describe how much I DESPISE you, February!!!

A jumble of a story.......


  Ola ya'll,

I'm still having insurmountable problems with blogger ,once I put pictures ..I can't put text.
Gah!'s the story with yesterdays pictures.

Well...I must back track first , night before last we went out to dinner with a coupld of hubby's work guys. We went to Royal Garden chinese restaurant .My "blind girl date " reccommended it to me. I must say it was fabulous.

Although, we had a hell of a time finding the place , reason being, I was supposed to print the directions...AND my husband was supposed to meet me at the subway at 6:45.
I forgot to print them and he forgot to quit working.

Well, I get to the meeting spot. No one is there. Pretty soon ,one of the guys shows up. So him and I wind up walking around for an hour looking for the place.
(and waiting for them )

The wind was blowing our heads off. He offered me his hat at one point . I was all " I have one in my bag, thanks , I was just hoping to not have to ruin my hair."

We asked for directions twice, walked...walked...found dark streets ,found an oriental strip Royal Garden. We finally walked BACK where we started and went into some place and got a drink ,while we WAITED for the rest of them to QUIT working!

I sat there having a drink with my spouses friend/coworker ,telling HIM all about my "girl date".

Hubby finally shows up in a cab to get us. We get to the restaurant and realize that we had been right down the street from there, we just walked the wrong direction.Gah!

I started writing this last night, it's now the next morning and I have no idea of what dinner had to do with the story of the pictures now. Damn you ,senility!
Perhaps I just wanted to tell you about dinner. lol

We had some crispy duck that was to die for! And we even got to take a cab all the way home. Woot! anyhow...the next day I was supposed to take hubbys suit pants to the dry cleaners. The dry cleaners is over by the cemetary where I took pictures, a while back.

I took the train over to Taarnby,walked a few blocks to the dry cleaners and then I was planning to check out the shops by the train station for some shoes for hubby.
Right as I get back to the train station I see a bus pull up and it says "Dragor" on the front of it. Dragor ,as it turns out, is where my husband has been ordering the cat litter from.
You know, the cat litter I wasted days of my life waiting for!

I could have just taken a suitcase and picked the shit up, if I knew where the "dog and cat store " was, in Dragor.

So, I haul ass and jump on that bus, hoping I will see the cat litter store. About 5 minutes into the ride, we're out in the country. I'm talking fields, horses, farmland.
Pretty soon I can see the water, and the huge bridge .I am assuming that is the bridge that goes over to Malmo ,Sweden.

Next thing you know we're in this gorgeous little village with all yellow buildings.I hopped off the bus and walked around taking the pictures you saw. I can't wait to go back there when it's warmer and things are blooming. Wow! was it a cool little place.

I never did see the cat litter store ,but it's there somewhere :)

                                           There you have it....the rest of the story  and a peek into my flea brain. :)

                                                     Happy Friday Peeps!

Ugh! I'm soo mad about the changes made on blogger. Nothing works any more. I can't move my pictures, I can't change my design, I can't even put text into a post once I have pictures.

I can not email for help, even my counter doesn't work any more. My computer "knows" that I am in all my shit is in Danish.

I'm ready to pull my hair out. I'm also blinder by the day .I can barely see ,much less read and try to decifer Danish. I feel like mary Ingalls when she slowly went blind.

I have wasted 3 entire days of my life ,waiting for cat litter to be delivered.The wind has been beyond gale force, for days. I had to wear an itchy wool hat .My hair looks like dog crap.I'm still fat,even though YES...I'm back on a few cigarettes....(yes, I KNOW you're ashamed of me .So am I!)
My spouse nags enough for all of you , trust me on need people, no need.

I've also wasted exasperating days of my life ...searching for a set of sheets. Such a simple thing ,no? Well, an impossible thing ...HERE!

I finally ventured out and pieced blue jersey fitted sheet, one black "Plain sheet" (flat) 4 crappy ,no thread count pillow cases, and 2 crappy duvet covers. Ta da!
We now have a conglomeration of a sheet set, in oh such a lovely pattern too.

While i was out in the ghetto, errr...somewhere buying the sheet parts, i took a few pictures as I was walking accross the bridge with the wind blowing my itchy wool head off.

You will have to peice all the pictures to what goes with what....

The only other news I have is tomorrow, I have a blind "girl date" .LOL
I have a blind date with a potential girl friend. (as you know, I mean friend ,friend,by that. Fellow crazy cat woman. )

I'll let ya'll know how it goes ;)
