I have had quite a day today. Dentist in the morn, which I was late for. I have tooth problems, as I eat far too much sugar. So I got 2 teeth worked on today, and lately I haven't been numbing very well. The last time, they had to redo the novocaine 3 times! The third one was the strongest one they had, and they put it as close to the nerve as they safely could. So I was completely numb for the procedure at least, but also numb the rest of the day.

So again today I wasn't numbing and they had to redo the novocaine. I am still partly numb 5 hours later and in PAIN! I'm not usually in pain after a visit, even after the novo wears off but my whole upper jaw feels like someone tore out a nerve. I'm holding ice cubes in my mouth and the ibuprofen is starting to kick in, so hopefully I can work tonight.
Just kind of a off day. On the bright side, I joined a gym! I'm gonna work through the bad moods! I am determined to bring my blood sugars down and level out my moods. I can't safely operate staying the way I am.
T tomorrow. Which reminds me, last night, I kept smelling her. Her scent even though I wasn't wearing anything I had ever worn to her office, I had showered and wasn't even at home! I'm house sitting so I was at a different house even!
It was so unsettling. She smells safe and comfy, kind of like a heated microfleece blanket (sounds weird, I know) but she wasn't there so I shouldn't have been smelling her! I think I am officially cray cray.

I wonder if you were smelling her because she represents safety and it helped you cope with anxiety?


I think it's a very good thing.


I'm sorry about the problems with the numbing at the dentist.

I don't know... But when I told her she was absolutely and completely shocked :D not weirded out but I don't think she's ever heard that before.
I do think it's good, my brain knows exactly how to calm me down! If I can subconsciously pull a scent from memory that's pretty good.
Thank you for your input!

I'm glad you were able to talk to her about it and be affirmed. This makes me smile.
