Feel Like Crap  
Had to go to the dentist and have a new crown done for a tooth that was cracking. I swear, I wish my response to medications was normal. I do the twilight sedation, along with laughing gas, and one pill doesn't work so I do two. I took it a a half hour before as instructed, but we were halfway through the appointment before it even started working. My face today feel awful, and in a lot of pain. I don't remember getting a crown hurting this much, this feels more like a root canal. I'm utterly miserable right now, my whole body hurts, and my brain feels like I drank a bottle of cheap vodka - or at least what I think that would feel like. Even moving from my chair feels like more effort than I want to expend currently.

I'm the person that wakes up still on the operating table

THAT was my real fear when I had my brain surgery in 2003
I had seen a program on tv about people who woke up during surgeries, but could not alert anyone to that fact
I asked my neurosurgeon for a MAC because I have horrific side effects from a general......... and I remember he replied "No way, we cannot have even minute movement' during the procedure
(later I found out I had a halo on during it also to keep movement down to a minimum)

You MUST make certain your medical record is fully flagged because of your reaction to anesthesia meds
