i'm an idiot

i'm an idiot

so i havne’t had dental insurance for the past 4 years. i figured, eh, no big deal. i’ve gone 7 years before with no dentist visits and had no cavities.
the day i left for the reunion, i woke up with my jaw/gums aching. uh oh. now, for about month i’d gotten food stuck between two of my molars, but i thought it was just due to my molars shifting apart. but the ouchy ouchy said, go see a dentist.
so this morning at 6:30 a.m. i haul myself out to my car to go to the dentist. first, i have tartar buildup up the wazoo on my lower teeth. then the xrays came out.
guess whaT? i have 6 cavities. and two might need root canals.
joy!!!
(mostly they are due to my lack of flossing. all the cavities are between a couple of teeth. so floss. and ask me if i am every time you see me.)
