If I didn't have a handy stash of painkillers, then I'd be in agony.
Spent two hours in the dentist's chair having root canal treatment - nightmare. Apparently, most people have only three canals in each of their back teeth. Unlucky me - I had to have four. Quadruple torture!
I can't ever remember it being as bad as this at the dentist's and at one point, I was in such discomfort, I think I was crying. The nurse asked the dentist several times to let me rest my jaw but he was obviously in relentless mood - probably wanted to get it all finished so he could get home in time for his tea.
And then I had to pay him £200 for inflicting pain on me and arrange another appointment next week.
Smiling at me, he said "I bet you hate me right now?"
"Yes, very much so!" I managed to mumble through swollen anaesthetised lips.
Oh and joy, I have a presentation to do tomorrow morning!
