A Day of Teeth


No one else takes a selfie while at the dentist? Both times I took them, I got “caught” and they thought it was funny, but not unexpected. πŸ˜€

I had to get two cavities filled. The original plan was a single one, with maybe the one in the front (I had a filling fall out), but nope. That back one needed a root canal. Because of the constant pain, I got moved in as an emergency patient.

Throwback Thursday

Today’s Throwback Thursday is a little more special than “usual” for me. Eleven years ago, right around this time, Josh and I were heading to the hospital to have a suspicious sharp pain in my back investigated.

So, today’s Throwback Thursday will be centered on the day before her birthdays! I only have 2007, and then 2009-2013, but that’s okay!

Again, a weather change happens and I’m caught off-guard. I wasn’t expecting the pain, the inability to sleep, any of it.

Meds that cause insane heartburn and more nausea but I can’t not take it! Migraines fucking suck, especially when you’re adding the insane neck and shoulder pain that comes with it. I clench, and that makes it worse. Of course, I clench more and the cycle continues!
