    I can’t feel my face

    So I had a dentist appointment today.  While going to the dentist in itself isn’t anything special, this was special to me because for the first time in my life I was getting a filling.  It’s wild to think that I’ve went my entire life without ever having a cavity or needing a filling, but I guess my lucky streak came to an end this week.

    Since I didn’t know what to expect I showed up pretty early at the dentist office, so I could ask some questions and mentally prepare myself for the unknown.  That’s when they let me know they would be using a local anesthetic to numb my mouth right in the area they would be putting the filling in.

    So anyways, as I’m sitting there I start to slowly feel the entire left side of my face, jaw, and even parts of my nose go numb.
