When you dream, your brain stops your body from moving so you don’t thrash around and hurt yourself. Those suffering from sleep paralysis either become paralysed before they are asleep, or cannot move after waking up.

It felt good to relax this morning. My anxiety levels were high but not because of the dentist appointment, it was because I was hellbent on not having my breath smell. I decided not to eat anything which backfired on me when I was anaesthetised in the dentist’s chair. I was given water laced with glucose after the first few injections made me drowsy.
The dentist had wanted to begin on the fillings that plagued the left of my mouth but I directed him to the other side instead (where my bad tooth was). He then noticed the infected gums and after a closer look informed me that the tooth couldn’t be saved. I answered in the affirmative immediately when he suggested having it removed today and after a few more injections (the right of my face was completely numb by now), he locked on the forceps, tweaked the tooth to my right and pulled it out of my gum effortlessly. My request to keep the ravaged tooth was denied unfortunately but I’ll be back to have my fillings done in a fortnight.
Groggy, I staggered to the shopping centre and caught a bus home. I stayed there for a while before making my way to my mother’s house. I spent the majority of the time speaking with my stepfather catching up with things with the twins making an appearance later on. My mother remained in bed during this whole time so I wasn’t able to show her the Mike Tyson Toronto interview. Back to work tomorrow!
