physical health, scare 

I had the last two of my wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. Usually the local dental anesthetic is supposed to wear off after 5 hours or so... and the first time I did, it wore off after about 3. That's fine.
But this time, over a day later, it's still quite numb. And I'm scared. I have another appointment on monday because of it but still.
I even told them that I hate it when anything is numb. It's probably fine but I'm still very anxious. Eating literally anything just feels so very wrong. I really, really don't like it.

I've just not had any luck at all with physical health these past few years. I'm trying not to be overwhelmed but it's a struggle sometimes.

I really, really, really want feeling back in my tongue...

The longer this goes on for the more worried I am that it won't come back.

Went to the same place that did the surgery. Got poked in the tongue a bunch, and I was told that they might have accidentally pulled at the nerves there. But I was able to feel the pokes so I'm told it'll heal. It better. This is very uncomfortable!

Oh hey. An update. Spots on my tongue are still numb. I can taste again, woo, but it's still not back to normal. Lots of pins and needles everywhere. It's uncomfortable, but if I had no other choice, I could live with it I guess. Let's hope I don't have to.
