So I have an abscess tooth. And a relatively large toothache, incidentally.

Last night, I woke around 2AM due to throbbing upper jaw pain. I took an ibuprofin and used some Orajel. Around 4AM, I finally settled down enough to nap.

First thing in the morning, about three hours ago, I went to my dentist and got some antibiotics and generic Vicodin, known for its ability to make people "loopy."

I don't normally take medication out of stubbornness, mostly. Because of/as a result of this, I'm generally pretty sensitive to medicine.

I've just taken a half-tab of my imitation pain pill, so we'll see what happens. Luckily, I can work from home for the day (Yay, VPN!), plus Cat is here to make sure I don't have a "bad trip," as the kids say.
