I'm getting my wisdom teeth out.

Well. The last several weeks have felt insanely hectic. I've juggled doctor and dental and mental appointments and finally got back to normal-ish this week. I think. It's hard to say.

I know I'm early on in the psych meds, but I have noticed side effects. I have a hard time focusing on using the computer. On the other hand I cleaned the bedroom, organized, de-cluttered, and have prepped for a faceup for Innis. I have also been incredibly productive at work. It's a slow time of year but my office is organized and clean. I'm also completely up to date on emails and paperwork, which have suffered in the past.

I feel strange, a little scatterbrained, but many of those little thoughts that go skittering off like grease on a hot griddle, come back to me after a bit. I've had intermittent nausea, and drowsiness, the latter of which I've combated with B12 energy shots.

I'm a bit frantic. I will be having oral surgery on Monday to remove all four wisdom teeth. They came in and out for years and finally fully emerged sometime in my late twenties. They were there when I had my root canal about a year and a half ago. One of them was the tooth that broke early last week. I'm a bit anxious but have been reassured by everyone that it will be fine. I'm a little worried about how I might cope, since I can't even drink water (and can't dry swallow) so I won't be on my meds. The procedure is late enough in the morning I will not take my morning meds, and will take the evening meds to get back on track.

My manager told me to take as long as I need. I plan to go back in on Thursday, but she is expecting me to probably leave early if I do. Fingers crossed I don't need to.

I can't focus anymore so.. I hope you're all doing well.

  1. that frantic spazzy need to DO bout trouble focusing on one particular thing hits me pretty hard when i hit a manic phase, so i take that to mean your altered meds are causing a change, and a good one since yours seem to be less intensely consuming than mine?

I'm Rory or Rorek in most places. I design, sew, and craft, primarily for my Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls. I also dabble in interior design, but I'm a little out of practice.

I post about the things I enjoy, which are sewing, photographing my dolls, designing new outfits, knitting, which I started in September of 2008, thanks to my Mom, and occasionally drawing, or painting.

I also post about Life Events and how they affect me and those that I love.

Currently I am living in DFW, Texas in the USA and working towards a degree in Theology.
