I’m contemplating a friendship. I had oral surgery last week. All four of my impacted wisdom teeth removed and a piece of my jaw bone. The surgeon said beforehand that it would be “brutal”. So I needed a ride because obviously I was going to be put under. I live a half hour from everything but have a friend/neighbor that lives close by. He works from home so has a flexible schedule so I asked him for a ride. After the surgery they gave him some instructions on a sheet as well as verbally told us although I was fresh out of anesthesia and advised him to stay with me a couple of hours after. Well, he dropped me off at home and took the instructions with him. I saw him yesterday and he said “oh ya I was supposed to give you all these instructions but I was cleaning out my car yesterday and just tossed them haha.” This surgery was a big deal and no joke. My physical health and even death can be impacted as well as just the overall vulnerability I had to get a grip on ((extreme discomfort with dentists, ie, the last cleaning I had I cried all the way home- it’s a thing and I know I’m not the only one). Moral of the story (probably more than one but this one seems at the fore): Maybe its not so hard for people with Scorpio to trust, but for them to find people who are worthy of their trust.

Also, I kinda hate to say this, but stuff like this happens a lot with me and mutable Suns. This person is a Pisces. I’ve seriously considered in the last year that mutables are fun to hang out with but when shit gets real, I can’t rely on them to show up (not fully) and be fully on my side.

@libra-noir sorry to hear about your experience with this mutable friend.  Maybe a 6th house Virgo, next time you need someone who cares and won't drop the ball on you!

@hulala Thank you. Yes, I have had Virgo friends too (still do), but theres just an energy there that’s hard for me to explain with all mutables. Well, I guess you could say it’s murable lol, and there’s something about that that makes ride or die not happen. This is of course based on a lot of experience. Like I said, I enjoy them a lot! I really do. I have Venus in Virgo, but they just always seem to drop the ball when I’m truly truly vulnerable. Like something about my vulnerability makes them lose some kind of focus? I don’t know hard to explain. Not bad people and not to be avoided necessarily  just synastry and self knowledge (what need in say a romantic relationship or a super close friendship, ie, a space where I can be vulnerable).

@libra-noir This is just some practical advice from when I had 2 wisdom teeth out a few years back now. Rinsing mouth with salt water very regularly, like every 1 or 2 hrs or so, really helped the wounds heal super fast. I did it whenever I felt I needed relief. I was so impressed by the healing power of that mineral, I kept at it for weeks until my gums felt strong again. Plus of course also some pain relief pills until its less achey. But salt is your friend!

I'm sorry about your human friend. I had my mum with me to take me home by train. However my mum is weird and not maternal most of time and I remember she let me go in the shops and order pain killers and buy food supplies with my mouth all banged up and full of blood which I found embarrassing and with the anaesthesia, as you know, your whole face is numb and when you speak it sounds like a stranger talking. Like you, I hoped for more from that person, but I healed myself really well in the following days and I'm sure you will too - take care!

@libra-noir Wow, that sucks. My housemate recently had a tooth pulled, and her Scorpio daughter made sure to get clarity on all instructions, highlight the important parts, stop by the store to get her mom the foods and drinks she could safely consume for the next few days (I helped with this), pick up her prescriptions and a probiotic, and take her home to rest. I followed through on instructions, including making sure she rinsed her mouth every day. She healed very quickly and the follow up visit went well. THAT’s the kind of attention you should have gotten from the guy who was with you. I’m sorry he flaked out on you.

ETA: Okay, I wouldn’t expect him to help you with aftercare (my housemate has memory issues and has to be assisted to do some things) but he could have at bare-ass minimum made sure you had everything you need (foods, drinks, meds, instructions) and that you’re feeling well enough to be left alone  before taking off!

Your neighbor is an irresponsible idiot!  Any decent person would've at least stayed long enough to make sure you were returning to normal and had everything you needed including the vital instructions.

You're incredibly brave to even have that surgery, not to mention having it during COVID.  Even finding a great dentist with decent staff is not easy.

I have to have numbing gel on my gums to endure a cleaning, and to allow them to give me the  Novocaine -- two shots to get numb enough for drilling.  If you haven't been offered the gel, next time demand it, with a full five minute wait for it to work.

@warped I'm taking you up on the numbing gel suggestion.  I also get the novocaine, and they never wait long enough for it to fully kick in before starting. I'm sufficiently numb when I'm in the car on the way home and mealtime lol
