Since I'm a serial appointment rescheduler due to my migraines, I finally decided I was going to get my ass to the hygienist one way or another on Saturday because I haven't had my teeth cleaned for nine months. I woke up with a bouncing brain and a bouncing stomach to match, so I took all my drugs and I took some things with me to the dentist, including my sleepy eye mask, my I-pod loaded with relaxation music and a can of ginger ale.
The hygienist didn't seem put out at all with my migraine kit. She said lots of people use sunglasses because of the bright lights, so I rigged myself up for my cleaning and I made it through it without chucking on her once.
Afterwards, I sipped my ginger ale to calm my bouncing stomach. I always feel nauseous after a cleaning anyways, so this really helped. The bad news is that I need a crown in July. Who knows how much my migraine kit will really help when they start drilling on my teeth??
