Since October pain has been a big part of my life. I don't like to talk about it because I'm just not into complaining. However, it's getting fairly ridiculous. Between my hips, teeth, medical tests, and wicked colds - I'm tired of it. Now this morning, my jaw hurt so bad that I couldn't open and chew a muffin for breakfast. My personal care attendant suggested that I go to my doctor.
At first, they thought an ear infection. No, Then she thought it was strep throat. No. The only thing that she could determine was a jaw sprain or spasm. That's a new one to me! She said liquid diet and soft foods plus prescribed muscle relaxers and pain killer. Luckily, right now, my pain went from an 8 to a 3 so I'm happy.
I have a few teeth issues to take care of but looking for a better dentist. I'm hoping that come February everything will begin to calm down and I can be myself once again.
On the bright side, Jason told me that I was a princess today. Laura had her drawing class after school. She also decided to join the school choir! Jeff is doing well and only a month left of nursing school. I'm keeping up with my resolutions. So, there are many things to be happy about but just wanting to be pain free and happy.
