I have being down with tooth aches for about a week now, it became several day 3 days making me unable to write. But now it has being fixed, concerning I am not a fun of going to see the dentist. I had to prepare myself for this adventure. I mastered courage on Monday to go see him, after waiting close to two hours he showed up, late and apologizing for being late, I was much annoyed cos I had to go back to the office.
After exchanging greeting, I sat in the almighty dentist chair with an overhead light looking at me directly. I being to panic as he takes the mouth mirror to examine my teeth. he assured me all is well but I needed to take my loose molar off Because it was 75% off from the gum, I obliged. Then came four shots of Local anesthesia.
“An anesthetic drug (which can be given as a shot, spray, or ointment) numbs only a small, specific area of the body (for example, a foot, hand, or patch of skin). With local anesthesia, a person is awake or sedated, depending on what is needed. Local anesthesia lasts for a short period of time and is often used for minor outpatient procedures (when patients come in for surgery and can go home that same day).” source Wikipedia
After 5 minutes, my lower lip and cheeks felt numb, He then used the Spoon excavator to remove my molar and inserted a gauze to absorb the blood that was gushing out of my mouth. It was finally over, I was giving some Diclo-Denk 100mg tab, Amoxycilin Capsules 250mg and ibuprofen to help in the recovery process.
Am recovering now and doing okay. Thank you for reading.

Today am beginning my weight loss journey to losing 35 kg of baby fat which I have been struggling to loss for the past TWO year (seriously) due to either lack of motivation or me being too lazy to complete whatever diet or exercise regime I start. I have download Myfitness pal on my phone which will help me count my calories. Ok let begin;
