those of you in iRC have already heard me crying about it, but..
I'm getting my wisdom teeth out next Tuesday and am a little worried about the general anesthesia etc. Any stories on what happened when you got yours out? Positive mantras? And Mata, if you're reading this thread, you worked some magic with my 2006 what-to-picture-in-the-way-of-positive-thinking airplane crisis, so feel free to write another one. ;)

Thanks, guys~

Whenever they took mine out...well, they put me under so I don't remember the actual process. I actually don't remember anything until we were about ten minutes away from the house and I finally woke up from my gas-induced coma.

The pain isn't any worse than a typical toothache. It's actually pretty managable, and I was back to my everyday routine in about three days with no pain at all - just weird holes where my teef used to be.

I really actually enjoyed getting them out - as Lolo mentioned,you can have some pretty trippy/fun experiences while under the influence of the laughing gas/ pain meds. And you get to eat lots of icecream. As long as you follow the directions for post-surgery (don't use a straw, don't mess with the stiches, ect.) then you should be golden.

Something that may help if you're still nervous - Some of the best stories I've heard come from people's experiences while getting their wisdom teeth out. Generally, they're hilarious and I know that the few things i remember through the haze of pain meds are actually things I look back on fondly. Getting oral surgery itself might not be so awesome, but let yourself enjoy being legally drugged up for a day or so - and of course, the icecream. You must enjoy the icecream.

You can own the strange, but the lights and glares will not make you real.
