Do you mean your tooth infection is related to standing on a stool ? :laugh:

I fell down and hit my jaws...there was an infection in the gum after the incident.
treatment was painful AND expensive.
so never will I step on any stool again.

I was a smart alec thinking I can quickly grab it instead of calling for either male at home.
after I fell, the 2 males rushed into the room thinking a UFO just landed. there wasn't any bruises...then out of the blue, there was a painful bulge in the upper gum. i made an appt to see the dentist and the x ray showed an infection. had a day surgery.

Oh dear, Janet. Hope you recover soon fr yr bulge & infection. Maybe then it's good u don't hv top hung in the kitchen. Now the men in your home better quick observe & anticipate yr need for help. Do take care.

the fear of stepping on anything now is still there. the infection has been cleared.
now if I need anything out of my reach, I will call for one of the males at home. I have a phobia even climbing ladders.

I u'stand yr phobia. Hope it'll go away soon enuf for you, but I'll need time to get over.

OT : Mum fell with a very loud thud in the kitchen many years back. When I rushed in, I saw her eyes stiff staring at ceiling, immovable and head in pool of blood. No ladder/stool, floor not wet or slippery. My heart stopped. I kept rubbing her hands & gently talking to her till when she moved, my tears just rolled. When admitted A&E, she had a stroke. Many years thereafter, I still had phobia of heights - any heights. I'll go dizzy going down stairs fearing missing steps. I don't dare look down fr high floors, etc. today, got over alr.

Give yourself time.

many years ago mum literally rolled down the last few steps at upper cross street...we were on the overhead bridge. the steps were small. for a few minutes she was momentarily blurred. ironic thing was I almost tripped before she did but managed to grab tight on the handrail.
a very nice middle aged guy saw the incident and insisted to send us to A&E. thank goodness the x ray turned out fine.

Hi,
Any good recommendations of dentists for teenagers?
