And now that I've definitely had shots I have a few things to mention:
1. Needles really arent that bad. Our group went sans the topical - and even without it, the needle stick was uncomfortable for like a second and then it was over. Not a big deal at all.
2. Having a numb face is freaking the WEIRDEST feeling in the world. For real. My chin feels like its not my chin. And dont even get me started about biting down on my teeth. SO WEIRD.
3. I cant get over how my face continues to get MORE numb. Every minute that passes it gets more numb. Its crazy. I seriously cant get over how weird it feels. The numbness just settles right in.
4. I am now "officially" (once I get the go ahead) ready to see patients. Now THAT is crazy. And exciting. And nerve wracking.
So happy birthday me.
