6 Word Story: 8/4-8/5

I had my tooth pulled in what I thought would be a 30-minute procedure. What no one, not even me counted on was that it would take longer. When the assistant needed to add counter pressure I immediately went into panic mode. No one has held my chin in such a way in a very long time and it caused a horrible flashback. The tooth was stubborn and apparently, my nerve path took more numbing medication than originally thought.

I’m out of bed and doing my best to catch up on my blog. I would like to thank everyone for the awesome advice and support. I will take breaks throughout the day because the more I’m upright the more the pain radiates through my jaw and into my lower ear. I never thought pain could be so distracting.

I have taken even just a 1/2 day off from work to recuperate from a barrage of verbal abuse or gaslighting from certain individuals from work. Then I’ve taken full days off to enjoy a good thunderstorm and some scary movies. What I’ve learned is that it was helpful for my mental health.


Truant from work; mental health downtime.

The very definition of today’s prompt could be a prompt in itself.


Trust, a valuable and fragile virtue.

  1. Oh, God. This gives me flashbacks about my last tooth extraction. Very similar to your experience. I thought they were going to pull my jaw off, the way they were yanking at the tooth. Hope you’re better soon.
