Before I get into this post, I wanted to let you all know that I was very honored to be interviewed by Out of the Darkness. This article is so well-written and I’m humbled to have been asked to participate. Check out my feature here.
I was still feeling a lot of pain from when I had my wisdom teeth extracted, but that was almost a month ago, so I thought it was a bit strange. I called the oral surgeon and they fit me in yesterday afternoon. Of course, I had an infection and my sockets (terrible, creepy word for holes where my teeth were) were not healing properly. He said it was “delayed healing” and a “slight infection.” I am not sure what caused it, but that’s life. I’m not on antibiotics and using an antibacterial rinse that I have to spray into the sockets.
One thing you don’t know about me is that I have a temper.
I came into work early today because I dropped my car off at the dealership to get an oil change and K brought me to work early. My jaw/face is sore from the infection and I just don’t feel good in general. I made a mistake at work and was told about it. Normally, this wouldn’t get me that irritated, slightly yes, but not greatly. I guess it was me being tired and not feeling good that led me to snap at a coworker and shake in anger after being told something that I should’ve been doing, although it had never been told to me before. I get so mad at things so quickly. I know it’s not worth the anxiety, but I still get worked up.
My mom says I get my temper from my dad’s side of the family. Maybe she’s right. Anyway, you don’t wanna mess with me 🙂
Do you have a temper? What are your thoughts on dealing with this?
