Oowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!! (and other news)  
Right after I made my last post, I headed out to Roppongi for a training meeting. The director and producer for Pop'n Press are so nice, giving me a lot of feedback and training. (Of course this means that I'm not very good yet, so it's a double-edged sword), but I am very grateful for their help. We really want our program to get into prime time broadcasting one day! I will do my best!

After that, though... yesterday I went to the dentist. No worries there, I was just supposed to get a cap on one tooth. But therein lies the problem.... the dentist was closed for two weeks because of the holidays, and during that time, the same tooth started hurting a bit here and there. It turns out that I have an infection!! I even floss, but it never seems to do me any good. So, instead of getting a cap, I was drilled into and put on antibiotics.... and it involved more pain than anything I have felt in my entire life!! So much pain all night that I went to an emergency dentist in the middle of the night, sure that something was wrong! It turns out that this is one of the most painful kind of infections in the whole body, and it should lessen up considerably, but there was nothing they could do beside medicate it and wait for it to heal.

OMG I wanted to gouge out my tooth with an ice pick!!!!!! OW!

I did sleep on and off during the night, but even though the pain today was only about 10% of yesterday's, it is still just barely manageable. I have been studying my script and sleeping or eating most of the day, and from now I'm going to go ahead and get back to drawing.. as long as the pain doesn't come back!

I kinda just want to sleep, but it's honestly hard to sleep. T-T

My next post will be related to art! Promise! (Yay! It's about time!?)

ooh teeth problems are annoying. I've been dealing with infections due to wisdom teeth so at the moment it's the most annoying thing but yours sounds so much worse. :x
Hope you're feeling back to 100% soon!!

They said it will take around a month to heal completely.. it has something to do with pus getting into the bone through the root of my tooth. T-T I swear, next time I feel the slightest discomfort whatsoever I am dropping all to go straight to the dentist!

Oh my god, I don't know how you could live through a month of pain like that without dying... you must be a god!! *is totally weak*

I am really glad that root canals are covered by Japanese national insurance. I don't know what I'd do if they weren't!

Ohhhhh honey!!! This is Mom. My 'Mom Radar' was on! It's no wonder I dreamt about you all night! I know your tooth will stop hurting and get better soon. I'm glad you decided to save your tooth with a root canal and a cap. I Love You!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 7th, 2010 12:23 am (UTC)
I hope so too!! Actually, I had a root canal done months ago, but the ceramic caps aren't covered by insurance. Sometime in between then and now it seems they missed a root and that got infected and it got into the bone. OW city. It's way worse than when I needed the root canal!

I've had two babies, and I've had toothache - and I'd pick giving birth every single time. An infected tooth is THE most painful thing.

Poor you!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 7th, 2010 12:24 am (UTC)
Wow, I kind of wondered but I didn't think that it would actually be true that it's more painful than giving birth... Guess I'll be ready to have some babies by the time this is over!

I just got a temp crown put in while I wait for the real crown next week and just getting an ordinary crown is pretty unpleasant, I can't imagine how much worse it is if it gets infected. Hopefully the amount of pain you have goes away quickly.

I think it doesn't matter sometimes how often you brush or floss, some people just have teeth prone to problems and others don't.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 7th, 2010 12:26 am (UTC)
*hugs* Yeah, I've had problems all over the place. Always cavities, gingivitis, etc etc etc. I tried to brush better, tried to be good about flossing, but nothing really works. I've just resigned myself to the fact that I will have to be best friends with the local dentist for the rest of my life ^^;;

Oh god that's not good at all. I hope you get well soon hun... Drink lots of the green tea I sent you! It's supposed to be a great blood cleanser and has a natural flouride designed to help teeth and bones. Tea with no suger = good stuff!

Get well hun! <3

Oh, and don't forget that you can multiple-steep those tea leaves. I think Sencha can go 3 times.

best one, get cloves, grind small and rub in onto gums at the tooth in pain. will numb it out without affecting your antibiotics treatment..:)

Ouch! I hope you're doing okay. Hopefully, everything is fixed and you won't have to worry about something like that for a looooong time.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 7th, 2010 12:32 am (UTC)
Well, it's going to take about a month to heal.. but I hope that nothing else pops up during that time!
