So, I went to the dentist.

It's been over a year since I went to the dentist last.
(Skip to last paragraph if you JUST want to know the results)
My very back-bottom-left wisdom tooth has been hurting the crap out of me for a while. It's very moody; sometimes it hurts a lot, sometimes not at all, sometimes when I bite down on it randomly.
You can see something that almost looks like a little black speck on it. I tried showing my mom and told her I thought it was a cavity. What was her response? Same as always, "I think you're making it bigger than what it actually is. Wait it out and see."
That ALWAYS HAPPENS. It happened when I was sick with the flu, I needed to see a doctor. She said wait, I waited, I ended up having Influenza types A and B at the same time, which could've been avoided had I gone to the doctor when I told her the first time.
Then a couple of months ago I started getting sick, she told me it was a cold. I get over a cold in a day, two days tops. I told her I needed to see the doctor. So I made the damn appointment myself. Mom was mad, but I ended up having an upper respiratory infection. I thought I had gotten over it, but it came back a week later, I wanted another doctor's appointment. Mom wouldn't let me. It took me going to the ER because I stopped breathing in my sleep for her to realize how serious it was.
ANYWAY. She did the same thing with my tooth. After I told her the results, she said to me, "We shouldn't have waited so long. We should have gone every six months."
Now, the results? Basically, I have this giant-ass cavity, its tapping in to my nerves. I may potentially need to have a root canal. Or it could be worse, a serious infection.
Not cool, man.
I would LOVE to go to the dentist, but I have no insurance. :/
Moms also like to do the "oh wait it out" business, especially if you're the oldest, but I'm not bitter.

Been there, done that. I've gotten a root canal and 3/4 wisdom teeth taken out. you should just go ahead and get them all pulled, if you can.

that's horrible. that's one thing i'm worried about is pulling out all my wisdom teeth. i want to do it but i'd have to pay out of pocket. there should be a wisdom teeth removal program for everybody. just keep it clean and tidy until you can get to the dentist to operate on it. my soul and teeth ache for you.
