Out with a toothache..

So I have not hardly even been online all week because I have been out with the worst toothache I have ever had (this being the only one I have ever had makes it the worst by default).I started my week out with throbbing gums, and pain that shot up into my ear making it feel like it would burst open , and then shooting into my head giving me a headache. I waited and waited for the pain to stop, not knowing what it was, but no it just kept getting worse. I finally caved and went to see a dentist, it turns out that I need a root canal or I need to get my tooth pulled. Now a root canal is going to cost me almost $1600.00 dollars and they want it upfront (obviously not easy to come up with) but I am terrified of either option. If i pull my tooth it will be much cheaper , but HELLO... I will be missing a tooth. Ughhhh,, I hate making decisions. I keep hearing that a root canal may not even be worth the money because they do not always hold.
Anywho.. thru all of this I have totally missed playing my Wii, I have just felt way to crappy. I have played like 2 times in 6 days. Now on the bright side, I was in so much pain I could not eat in as many days so I actually lost a few pounds anyway. I have not snacked, I have had very little soda pop.

Today I think that the antibiotics are kicking in because I have had minimal pain and have not had to use any pain pills they gave me. Lucky because I was getting low.

And that is a whole different story, the pain pills they gave me made me feel so crappy that i could not even take them, I had to cut them in half. This helped kill the pain a bit but not give me all the nauseated crappy feelings I was having. Apparently I am a wimp.

Long story short, I am feeling better because the antibiotics are working but I still have a decision to make: Root Canal........or ..............tooth pulled. I don't know what to do.
